Mounting with Standard Fittings:
To use standard fittings, order clamping valve with mounting base (base has three 1/4" BSPP ports, in addition to one 1/4" BSPP port on the valve). Fasten valve to fixture using the four tapped mounting holes underneath the base. Mount in any position, horizontal or vertical.
For manifold mounting, order clamping valve without mounting base (use the three O-ring ports underneath the valve). Mounting holes and manifold passages must be drilled exactly as shown in the drawings. Fasten valve to fixture using the four mounting screws furnished.
Clamping valve has four ports:
P = Pressure into valve from power source
T = Return from valve to power source
A = Flow from valve to clamps, clamping
B = Flow from valve to clamps, unclamping
Port connections and flow directions must be exactly as shown on the drawings; otherwise the valve will not function correctly. Use only with clean, approved hydraulic fluid (CLR-2-FL or equivalent). Fluid must be kept clean (10 micron or better nominal filtration). Do not use NPT fittings.
