Electro-Hydraulic On-Off Control of Flow up to 60 LPM (16 GPM)

Comatrol—a global leader in the design, manufacture and sale of engineered hydraulic cartridge valves—introduces the SV15 High Flow Solenoid Valves. This collection of 11 new cartridge valves offers flows up to 60 LPM (16 GPM), providing customers with a technical alternative to some CETOP D03 (NG6) valves. Additionally, the SV15 family enhances Comatrol’s existing portfolio of spool-type solenoid valves, now with 46 different valves to choose from for on-off directional flow control.
The larger cavity provided by the 15 size allows for higher flow capacity than many similar cartridge and CETOP D03 products in the market. Ulrich Maurmann, Comatrol Account Manager (Germany) shares, “What is missing in the market today is a range of high flow valves that cover 2-way, 3-way, and 4-way solenoid valves to provide our customers with higher flow capacity for their bigger machines using larger cylinders and motors.” Ulrich continues, “Using the 15 size cartridge cavity over CETOP allows our HIC designers to make larger passageways in the manifolds, thus reducing pressure losses in the system.”
With this industry-leading range of 11 high flow, spool-type solenoid valves with maximum flow capacities of 50-60 LPM (13-16 GPM), customers have the flexibility to apply the right product for each application. For additional application flexibility, Comatrol’s full complement of spool-type solenoid valves now come in four cavity sizes - 08, 09, 10 and 15 – and flow ranges from 6 LPM (1.6 GPM) to 60 LPM (16 LPM). The SV15 valves have a rated pressure of 210 bar (3000 psi), based on NFPA fatigue test standards (at 1 million cycles).
Solenoid valves have always been a strong part of Comatrol’s portfolio, now with over a million valves in the field. The SV15 also has a proven track record with over 50,000 valves already applied on many applications around the world. Comatrol solenoid valves, including the SV15s, are proven products in mobile and industrial applications.
Additional optional features include, depending on the valve, 300 micron filter to protect the actuator from large particles, a push-pin manual override, and coils with diodes, and AC current. Comatrol’s SV15 coils are designed for incorporation on machine control architecture that utilizes Sauer‐Danfoss PLUS+1™ hardware. Adding SV15 Series valves to your application using PLUS+1 GUIDE software is as easy as drag-and-drop.
Comatrol, a member of the Sauer-Danfoss (NYSE: SHS) Group, is the most responsive source for Cartridge Valves and Hydraulic Integrated Circuit (HIC) solution needs. Comatrol works with customers and suppliers around the world to manufacture high performance machine control solutions for mobile, on-highway, energy, and industrial equipment markets.
