Sun carries the load

First Quarter 2024 Hydraulic systems & components

When valuable lives are hoisted in the air, reliable load holding technology is at its utmost importance. That’s why you can count on Sun’s excellent load holding cartridge valves. Additionally, Sun’s precision manufacturing and unmatched quality ensure the stability and safety of your heavy-duty equipment.

Reliable load holding technology

Sun’s popular CB family of valves sets the industry standard in load holding applications. When dependability matters, its trusted cartridge valves provide exceptional quality and control. Vented and non-vented options are available, with several pilot ratios and flow rates possible to meet the demands of your unique application.

Efficiency where it’s needed most

Compromising between stability (low pilot ratio) and efficiency (high pilot ratio) is a thing of the past with Sun’s LoadAdaptive counterbalance valves. These are multi-pilot ratio, non-vented solutions engineered to be direct replacements for CB valves. When energy and efficiency are important, Sun’s LoadAdaptive valves offer up to 30% energy savings.

Sun’s LoadMatch cartridge valves offer substantial energy savings by operating with lower pilot pressure, without sacrificing performance. These valves were designed to lift various load pressures, and can withstand corrosion. Providing up to 85% of energy-efficient power is the resilient and compact eSense. This low-leakage solution offers up to 90% less oscillation, resulting in superb shock absorption.

Tools to help you choose

Sun can help you select your best load holding solution. Still unsure what valve best suits your needs? Sun’s technical support team is ready to guide you to the finish line.

How to protect against water hammer
SA Gauge Editor's Choice Hydraulic systems & components
Water hammer is a high-pressure surge or wave created by the kinetic energy of moving fluid when it is rapidly forced to stop or change direction, altering the liquid’s velocity. The progression of the water hammer shockwave needs to be detained and slowed before reaching the instrument sensor. SA Gauge manufactures several such devices in order to achieve this.
