Moog Inc. has introduced the new D926 Series Proportional Valve. Following the 2021 release of the D936 Servo-Proportional Valve, this direct-operated, analog valve adds to a comprehensive portfolio of flow control valves to offer customers a wide range of choices based on needed features and price points. For over seventy years, Moog has consistently delivered state-of-the-art technology and engineering innovations that offer optimal reliability and performance. The D926 Series Valves are driven by two proportional solenoids with a spool-in-body design for high rated flows up to 8.5 gpm at a 5 bar pressure drop per land. The valve features next-generation electronics for optimized energy efficiency while delivering high static and dynamic control performance. The valves are suitable for electrohydraulic control of position, speed, pressure, and force in open and closed-loop control systems. Customers will benefit from multiple standard features, such as a 4/3-way design with multiple spool overlap options, including a center failsafe position, electronics on the solenoid for reduced envelope size, and added vibration resistance.
With superior resistance to vibration, temperature, and contamination, the D926 Series Valves are especially suited for plastics machinery, heavy industry, die casting, and the wood industry. The new valve is also ideal for applications requiring a high degree of precision control including marine, metal forming and presses, gas and steam turbines, and test-lab rigs.
