DESCRIPTION
A screw-in, cartridge-style, load sense, flow-on-demand pressure-compensator.

OPERATION
With inlet at port 2, the EC16-32 will deliver required flow at 3 in response to load
differential pressure sensed at 1.

FEATURES
• Hardened parts for long life.
• Quiet, modulated response.
• Industry-common cavity.
