Eaton develops high performing disc valve


Eaton has developed a reliable and high performing disc valve for low and medium duty applications.

The new Xcel series is a range of low-speed, high-torque disc valve motors with a three-zone design allowing bidirectional operation, and a case drain facility that improves resistance to pressure spikes and extends seal and motor life.

Many applications demand a mix of higher and lower rated motors for different functions. This means either having multiple suppliers or compromising price or performance of motors from one supplier. Complementing the Char-Lynn premium line, Xcel can be applied to the lower to medium duty functions, with one single supplier for all levels of motor performance.

John Taylor, EMEA product manage, Eaton, said, “Due to end users changing requirements and increased competition, mobile machine manufacturers are looking for motors specifically designed to match work circuit duty cycles to reduce their overall cost.

“Eaton’s Xcel series disc valve high-torque, low-speed motors offer value and performance for low and medium duty applications. They are optimized to provide premium performance at a manageable price point.”
