Bosch Rexroth has launched a new load-sensing valve platform designed for a range applications, including compact tracked and skid-steer loaders, aerial work platforms (AWPs), telehandlers and compact construction equipment.
The RM10 and RM15 load-sensing valves offer load pressure independent flow control with rates of 23.7 and 39.6gpm respectively, at inlet pressures of 4061psi and port pressures up to 4641psi.
With no transition plate needed between the RM10 and RM15 or the current Rexroth M4-12 portfolio, the valve line provides optimum flexibility for machines that demand varying flow rates and functions, but have limited space due to industry regulations, Bosch Rexroth said.
The valves come equipped with common industry work ports and load sense relief cartridges, and are optimised for working functions, including lift/lower tilt functions, outriggers, winches, coordinated boom control, attachment/auxiliary flow functions, broom/brush motor control and blade angle/tilt/rotate.
