valve-11

 

Describe the basic operation of a sequence valve.

 

Describe operation of this multi actuator clamp and bend hydraulic circuit.

circuit-4

 

Describe the operation of this multi actuator hydraulic circuit making use of a sequence valve on the cap end of the bend cylinder. Assume the set value of the sequence valve is 400psi and the main pressure relief valve is set to 800psi.

circuit-5

 

Identify potential disadvantages of coordinating actuation sequence using solely pressure input.

 

Describe the operation of this multi actuator hydraulic circuit making use of a sequence valve on the cap end of the bend cylinder and another sequence valve on the rod end of clamp cylinder.

circuit-6

 

Describe the operation of this hydraulic circuit making use of a sequence valve with an external remote pilot used to coordinate two separate actuators (stabilizer boom and crane) using two independent directional control valves.

circuit-7

 

Differentiate between the operation of a normal versus a kick down style sequence valve.

 

Describe the operation and advantages of this multi actuator hydraulic circuit making use of a kick down style sequence valve.

circuit-8

 

Describe how a sequence valve can present an advantage when used as a pressure relief valve in this hydraulic circuit.

circuit-9

 

Describe how this sequence valve and check valve can be used to brake a unidirectional hydraulic motor.

valve-12

 

Describe how these two sequence valves can be used to brake a bidirectional hydraulic motor.

valve-13

 

Describe how the set value of the above sequence valves influences the deceleration rate of the hydraulic motor.

 

Identify the purpose of a makeup check valve.
