A screw-in cartridge, 3-port, externally piloted counterbalance valve for precise control of overrunning loads, with load holding capabilities, thermal relief protection and free reverse flow check features.

Counterbalance Valve RS08-01 is a compact cartridge design with operating pressure up to 5000 psi (350 bar) and flow rate up to 10 gpm (38 l/min). These valves are used for

  • Precise control of overrunning loads
  • Positive load holding in any position
  • Protection from pump cavitation
  • Thermal expansion relief protection
  • Preventing actuators from running ahead of the pump supply

Counterbalance Valves have:

  • A built in check valve feature allowing free flow in one direction
  • A relief feature controlling flow in the other direction
  • A pilot signal that overrides the relief setting providing the counterbalance function
