Rotary Flow Dividers - Gear Type
50-50 Gear Type Flow Dividers
Much more accurate than spool type dividers!
Synchronize flow to 2 cylinders. (Use only one divider for 2 cylinders.) 2 sets of gears on a common shaft divide / recombine flow with more precision than spool type dividers. Integral reliefs allow one side to bypass while the other "catches up" at the end of a cylinder stroke (but do not function as system relief). Most accurate when used near maximum flow.
EXAMPLE: we used one of these to synchronize two 9 ft. cylinders swinging up a 40 ft wide hanger door. At the end of the lift they were off only about 2 inches, which took just a couple seconds to make up. (The internal reliefs allow this to happen automatically if you just hold the valve down.)
