The Brand, full range pressure compensating variable flow control is designed so that the orifice area varies as the lever is rotated. Fluid travels past the variable orifice, by the compensator spool and then out the controlled flow port. Therefore the flow out of the CF port is proportional to the orifice area which can vary from closed to wide open. The sum of the controlled flow and the excess flow equals the inlet flow and as the controlled flow increases the excess flow decreases. Both outlet flows are pressure compensated with a spool that maintains a constant flow while adjusting for pressure. Hunting between the compensated pump and our valve is dampened with a cross hole in the casting. Thus, the outlet flow is smooth and constant regardless of the pressure on the CF and EX port.
