Eaton's New Sectional Hydraulic Valves are Modular and Versatile | Construction News

Power management company Eaton has launched the CLS sectional mobile valve, which provides patented load sense bleed off, pre- and post-compensated load sense relief on each section, and a highly modular design with one of the smallest envelopes in the industry.

Built for mobile, off-highway equipment, including forklifts, truck-mounted cranes, excavators, refuse trucks, forestry and agricultural machinery, and marine equipment, CLS sectional mobile valves let users prioritize work functions to improve productivity, efficiency, and safety.

“The modular, highly versatile CLS sectional mobile valve was designed to streamline features – adding value without increasing size or sacrificing flexibility,” said Nadine Powell, Eaton's global strategy and planning manager for mobile valves. “With a number of available features unique to many load-sensing valves, such as priority flow sharing and local load sense relief on each section, customers can design the valve to meet the distinctive needs of their machine.”    

The pre- and post-compensated mobile valve offers up to 10 working sections and available mid-inlet or customer manifolds. The valve is available in models CLS100, CLS180, CLS250, or CLS350 to accommodate different flow requirements – 150 liters (39.6 gal.) per minute; 220 liters (58.1 gal.) /min; 300 liters (79.3 gal.) /min; and 450 liters (118.8 gal.) /min, respectively.

Each valve can accommodate a working pressure inlet port of 350 bar (5,076 psi) and a maximum pressure outlet port of 25 bar (362 psi).
