CR08-38 Valve

CR08-38 Valve symbol

A screw-in, cartridge-style, direct-acting, differential area, poppet-type, bi-directional
relief valve intended for use as a pressure limiting device in demanding hydraulic circuits.

The CR08-38 is a direct-acting, dual cross-over relief valve in a single cartridge format.
It blocks flow from 1 to 2 bi-directionally, with the spring chamber constantly drained at 3.
On attainment of a pre-determined pressure at either 1 or 2, the poppet is forced from its seat.
Back pressure on port 3 will affect the nominal setting on a 2:1 basis.

• Adjustments cannot be backed out of the valve.
• Adjustments prohibit springs from going solid.
• Hardened parts for long life.
• Compact, industry-common size.

Operating Pressure: up to 205 bar (3000 psi)
Adjustable Pressure Range: 68 — 205 bar (1000 — 3000 psi); Pressure is set at port 2
