  • Flow Control

    • FC - Pressure compensated variable flow control

    • 0-30 gpm (0-114 lpm)
      The Brand, full range pressure compensating variable flow control is designed so that the orifice area varies as the lever is rotated. Fluid travels past the variable orifice, through the compensator spool and then out the controlled flow port. Therefore the flow out of the CF port is proportional to the orifice area which can vary from closed to open. The sum of the controlled flow and the excess flow equals the inlet flow and as the controlled flow increases the excess flow decreases.
    • FC - Pressure compensated variable flow control

    • 0-90 gpm (0-341 lpm)
      The Brand, full range pressure compensating variable flow control is designed so that the orifice area varies as the lever is rotated. Fluid travels past the variable orifice, by the compensator spool and then out the controlled flow port. Therefore the flow out of the CF port is proportional to the orifice area which can vary from closed to wide open. The sum of the controlled flow and the excess flow equals the inlet flow and as the controlled flow increases the excess flow decreases. Both outlet flows are pressure compensated with a spool that maintains a constant flow while adjusting for pressure.
    • Series 83 - Non-adjustable inline flow control

    • The Brand, Series 83 is a two port, non-adjustable, pressure compensated, inline flow control, with free reverse flow. The amount of flow is determined by the diameter of the orifice in the compensator piston. The spring and piston are held in place when it is connected to an #8 SAE male fitting. This flow control is inexpensive and gives the customer the ability to change the flow rate by swapping the piston with another that has a different size orifice.
    • Series 84 - Non-adjustable fixed orifice

    • The Brand, Series 84 is a two port, non–adjustable, inline, fixed orifice with free reverse flow. The flow is determined by the orifice diameter and fluid pressure. The orifice diameter must be specified by the customer when ordering (up to a diameter of 0.250” (6.35mm)). The orifice plate is held in place when it is connected to a #8 SAE male fitting. This restricted flow assembly is inexpensive and gives the customer the ability to change the orifice diameter by swapping the orifice plate with another that has a different orifice size.
    • EFC - Electronic pressure compensated variable flow control

    • 0-30 gpm (0-114 lpm)
      The Brand, electronically adjustable proportional pressure compensated flow control is an electronically controlled version of the original FC51 style flow control valve. The EFC performance as a flow control is very similar to the FC51 because they both use the same spring and compensator spool. Thus, the control flow port (CF) and the excess flow port (EX) remain usable and pressure compensated. The main advantage of the EFC over the FC51 is that the flow can be adjusted proportionally with a solenoid instead of manually. As the current to the solenoid increases the variable orifice moves proportionally similar to positioning the rotary side lever on the manual FC's.
    • LEFC - Electronic pressure compensated variable flow control

    • 0-55 gpm (0-208 lpm)
      The Brand, LEFC (large electronically adjustable proportional pressure compensated flow control) is an electronically controlled version of the original large FC51 style flow control valve. The LEFC performance as a flow control is very similar to the large FC51 because they both use the same spring and compensator spool. Thus, the control flow port (CF) and the excess flow port (EX) remain usable and pressure compensated.

The priority port size is 3/8” NPT for 0-8 gpm (0-30.2 lpm), 1/2” NPT for 8-16 gpm (30.2-60.5 lpm) and 3/4” NPT for 16-30 gpm (60.5-113.4 lpm)
    • BG4 - Non-adjustable constant volume priority divider

    • 30-45 gpm (114-170 lpm)
      The Brand, BG4 non-adjustable priority flow divider receives a single stream of fluid and divides it into a priority stream and an excess stream. The priority flow port maintains the same flow even with an increase or decrease in the input flow. Both outlet flows are pressure compensating and the sum of said flows equals the inlet flow. Flow can only pass through the valve in one direction, inlet to outlet. Accuracy is normally better than ± 5%. The priority flow setting must be specified when ordering. Pressure drop through the valve will range from 33 to 50 psi (2.3 to 3.4 bar) depending on the flow and pressure in the system.
    • FG - Adjustable constant volume priority divider

    • The Brand, adjustable priority flow divider comes in two basic models FG52 and FG54. The FG series receives a single stream of fluid and divides it into two separate output streams.

The ratio of the outlet flows, remains constant even when the input flow increases or decreases. The ratio of the outlet flows may be varied from equal flow (50:50) all the way up to an 85:15 ratio.
    • FP - Adjustable proportional flow dividers

    • The Brand, adjustable proportional flow divider comes in three basic models FP53, FP55 and FP56. The FP series receives a single stream of fluid and divides it into two streams. The customer has the ability to adjust one (FP53 or FP55) or both (FP56) outlet flows. The initial flow settings will not fluctuate even though the work being done by one of the streams is much greater than the work being done by the other. The ratio of the outlet streams remains constant even when the inlet flow increases or decreases.
    • B300 - Non-adjustable proportional combiner

    • The Brand, B300 non-adjustable proportional combiner takes two streams of flow and combines them into one stream and it also offers free reverse flow from each outlet port. Flow can travel in reverse through the outlet port and is non-metered when it goes in reverse. The non-metered flow travels through the outlet, up the center of the valve, past both ball checks and then out the inlet port. This valve gives the customer the ability to synchronize two single acting cylinders when lowering two different gravity loads. It also gives the customer the ability to synchronize two double acting cylinders by plumbing a B300 at the inlet of both cylinders and another B300 at the outlet of both cylinders.

For this application, stack two EFC’s and one relief section.
  • Relief Valves

    • RL - Adjustable hydraulic relief

    • The Brand, adjustable relief valve is precision built, dependable and low priced. Both the RL and RLC are of the ball spring type, which is the most dependable type of relief valve. The ball will not jam, lock, or seize and will always open. The advantage of the RLC over the RL option is that cracking pressure at low and high flow is virtually the same. The RLC is also more stable when flow is traveling past the ball and spring.
    • POR75 - Adjustable pilot operated relief

    • The Brand, adjustable pilot operated relief valve maintains the same cracking pressure at low and high flows. As the pressure setting is exceeded a poppet type relief opens and allows a small pilot supply of fluid to escape a chamber at the end of the main spool. The escape of pilot supply causes the main spool to shift and thus opens a passageway which allows the main volume of pressurized fluid to escape to tank without passing over the poppet type relief. The higher the pump output the farther the spool shifts over to enlarge the opening to tank.
  • Pilot Operated Checks

    • PC - Pilot check valve
       

    • The Brand, pilot check valve is precision built, dependable and low priced. In one direction oil opens a check valve and passes through the valve and into a cylinder. As the check valve closes the oil is positively trapped in the cylinder with a check ball valve. Applying pilot pressure to the pilot port of this valve moves a piston stem against the ball to push the check ball off its seat thus allowing the oil to leave the cylinder. The PC is intended to be a positive safety check, it is not intended to be a metering or counter balance valve. The pilot piston ratio is 4 to 1, this means that it only requires 1/4 as much pressure on the pilot piston as is being trapped in the cylinder by the check ball.
    • POC76 - Pilot operated check valve or counter balance valve

    • The Brand, pilot check valve will permit free flow in one direction and will check flow in the opposite direction. Applying pilot pressure to the pilot port of this valve moves the main spool, causing it to shift and unblock the flow. Pilot pressure must be 50 psi (3.4 bar) or greater. The POC76-3/4 is normally connected to the bottom of a cylinder holding a heavy load. This valve will prevent the load from free falling if a hose or pipe breaks. The valve meters the flow at the same rate in both directions which prevents cavitation and run-a-way. Metering the flow can be accomplished by varying the pilot pressure. The POC76-3/4 is available in production quantities of 100 and greater, unless in stock.
    • SHV - Shuttle valve
       

    • The Brand, shuttle valve has two inlet ports and one outlet port. The purpose of the shuttle valve is to accept flow from the inlet with the higher pressure and to route it to the outlet, while keeping the inlet flows isolated from one another. We manufacture shuttle valves in two sizes SHV50C and SHV25. The SHV50C has 1/2" NPT ports, capable of 0-15 gpm (0-57 lpm) and a peak pressure drop of 15 psi (1.0 bar). SHV25 has 1/4" NPT ports, capable of 0-5 gpm (0-19 lpm) and a peak pressure drop of 50 psi (3.4 bar).
  • Hand Operated Hydraulic Pumps

    • HP - Hand operated hydraulic pumps

    • The Brand, hand operated hydraulic pump comes in three basic models HP121DA, HP61DA and HP22SA. Each one of these models comes with a relief that can be adjusted manually to suit the customer’s requirements. Brand has also redesigned the outlet check seat for zero leakage. The zero leak seat was created by utilizing an o’ring seal to replace the steel ball seal. The NT (no tank) option does not have a tank, pressure relief and release valve.
