Hytec Group expands sub-Saharan distribution of Bosch Rexroth oil control cartridge valves

May 2015 News

As part of the new joint venture into Africa, the Hytec Group has increased its distribution and support of the full range of Bosch Rexroth Oil Control cartridge valves throughout sub-Saharan Africa. This expanded support will enhance the Group’s logistical, sales and support capabilities of the products, and includes a more competitive pricing structure for this series.

The valve range simplifies conventional compact hydraulic systems, and enhances hydraulic circuits where space and weight present fundamental application constraints. Bosch Rexroth cartridge valves are characterised by a long service life: at an operating pressure of 350 bar, the cartridge solenoid valves are rated for a product life of 10 million cycles.

The unique design of the cartridge valves reduces the amount of interconnecting pipe work required within the hydraulic circuit through a customised manifold. This reduces the overall weight, and space requirements of the machine, resulting in decreased power requirements – contributing to better all-round energy efficiency. Because the interconnections of piping within a conventional hydraulic system are a common source of fluid leakage, the compact design and reduced piping requirements of the cartridge valves also reduces inspection and maintenance requirements, facilitating a more efficient hydraulic operation.

The valves offer a typical working pressure of 350 bar, with some rated to 630 bar, and flow rates of up to 700 l/min, for fluids in the temperature range -30 to 100°C. The screw-in cartridge valve range includes pressure control valves, check valves, counterbalance valves, flow control valves, logic elements, directional valves and proportional valves.

These cartridge valves are used extensively in mobile applications, for instance in lifting platforms, agricultural machines, earthmoving and materials handling equipment and mobile cranes.
