DESCRIPTION
A screw-in, cartridge-style, priority-on-demand, pressure-compensator with a static load sense,
intended to provide priority flow in the required amount, while allowing excess flow to be used for
auxiliary functions.

OPERATION
With inlet at port 3, the EC12-42 will deliver required priority flow at 4, based on the size of the
external orifice, regardless of load pressure. Excess flow exits, or is bypassed, at port 2. Port 1
is the load sense port. All ports may be fully pressurized.

FEATURES
• Priority-on-demand.
• Static load sense.
• Hardened parts for long life.
• Quiet, modulated response.
• Industry-common cavity.
