A new high-flow Hydraulic Logic Valve used in conjunction with a manifold block and screw-in cartridge control valves will replace the existing subplate and directional spool valves on American Baler’s 20 and 30 horsepower balers. The new Logic Valve is comprised of fewer components and improves efficiency by providing enhanced flow characteristics and reducing heat generation. While competitive high-flow logic valves contain bolted on caps with up to seven seals which are prone to external leakage, American Baler reduces the external seals to one, greatly reducing any external leakage. In addition, this feature reduces required inventory for plant managers. The new Logic Valve is available on new balers only and cannot be retrofitted to existing units.
