Danfoss Power Solutions launches DVG hydraulic valves

Danfoss Power Solutions has announced the launch of its DVG family of hydraulic valves, a new line of open-center directional control valves for mobile machinery. Currently available in North, Central, and South America, the valve group brings a new level of quality and performance as well as rapid and reliable delivery to a competitive market. DVG 60 and DVG 100 valves are ideal for a variety of construction, material handling, and agriculture machinery, including skid steer loaders, compact track loaders, backhoe loaders, truck-mounted cranes, and tractors.

Danfoss DVG valves offer several class-leading performance attributes, including return flow rate, pressure drop, and active spool stroke resolution. DVG valves are designed with meter-out flow 75% higher than meter-in flow at 15 bar pressure drop. This enables fast cylinder retraction to meet desired cycle times, eliminating the need for complex or oversized systems. The pressure drop from the valve inlet to the work port is 33% lower in a DVG 60 valve and 7% lower in a DVG 100 valve compared to the next best alternative. This best-in-market pressure drop reduces power losses and heat generation, enabling customers to reduce fuel consumption and cooling needs while optimizing the energy efficiency of the machine. With 4.2 millimeters of active spool stroke resolution on proportional electrohydraulic controls, DVG 60 and DVG 100 valves provide better application controllability than other open-center valves on the market.

The modular build concept is a key feature of the DVG valve family. A common interface for the DVG 60 and DVG 100 valves enables flexible configuration to meet each machine’s precise requirements. A maximum of 12 work sections can be combined in one valve, enabling use on machines with a range of functionality.
