Source: Bosch RexrothSource: Bosch RexrothHydraulics technology company Bosch Rexroth has created a new load-sensing valve platform for a range of applications, including compact tracked and skid-steer loaders, aerial work platforms (AWPs), telehandlers and compact construction equipment, among others.

The RM10 and RM15 load-sensing valves provide load pressure independent flow control with rates of 23.7 gpm and 39.6 gpm, at inlet pressures of 4,061 psi and port pressures up to 4,641 psi.

With no transition plate necessary between the RM10 and RM15 or the current Rexroth M4-12 portfolio, the valve line offers flexibility for machines that require assorted flow rates and functions, but have limited space due to industry regulations, according to Bosch Rexroth said.

The valves are outfitted with common industry work ports and load sense relief cartridges, and can be used for functions such as lift and lower tilt functions, outriggers, winches, coordinated boom control, attachment and auxiliary flow functions, broom and brush motor control and blade angle, tilt and rotate.
