CRV08-20 Valve

CRV08-20 Valve symbol

The CRV08-20 cross-port relief uses two RV08-20 cartridges in an in-line plumbed housing.
It is typically used to protect a hydraulic cylinder or motor from load-induced pressure surges.
The cartridges used are screw-in, direct-acting, poppet-type valves, intended for use in lower
flow circuits, requiring low internal leakage.

The CRV08-20 manifold allows flow to pass through the separated 1 to 2 passages at low
pressure loss. If pressure in either passage exceeds the valve setting, flow will cross over
to the opposite passage.
Note: Back-pressure at the outlet port of the relief cartridges will increase the nominal
setting of the valve on a 1:1 basis. For example, 6.9 bar/100 psi back-pressure increases the
nominal setting by 6.9 bar/100 psi.
See valve model RV08-20, page 6.010.1 for cartridge specifications.

• Adjustments cannot be backed out of the valve.
• Adjustments prevent springs from going solid.
• Optional spring ranges to 228 bar (3300 psi).
• Rapid response to pressure changes.
• Compact size.

Operating Pressure: 228 bar (3300 psi) maximum
Flow: 22 lpm (6 gpm) maximum; see performance chart for flow handling capacity at max.
   setting for each spring range option. Pressure rise will vary with spring (range) and with
   setting within range due to flow forces. Consult factory for specific flow characteristic values.
Internal Leakage: 0.25 cc per minute (5 drops/minute) max. to 75% of nominal setting
Crack Pressure Defined: bar (psi) evident at 0.95 lpm (0.25 gpm) attained
Reseat Pressure: Nominal 80% of crack pressure
