Ideas & Applications

Regenerative circuits made easy

egenerative circuits save time and


energy by increasing the extension
speed of double acting cylinders. They
do this by routing fluid exiting the rod
end of the cylinder back to its cap end
instead of routing the fluid to tank.

Scanwill SV series speed valves


make it simple to produce regenerative, double-acting hydraulic cylinder performance by adding a standard
component to a conventional circuit.

PRESSURE TRANSMITTERS

Speed valves allow easy incorporation of


flow regeneration into circuits simply by
connecting the valves three ports between
a double-acting hydraulic cylinder and
directional control valve.

speed valves are piped between a cylinder and its directional control valve.
A pilot-shifted spool interconnects
the cylinders A and B ports for highspeed, low-pressure regenerative extension. When the circuits main di-

Normal speed
during retraction

Functional schematics show high-speed,


regenerative extension and normal-speed
retraction using Type SV speed valve.

rectional control valve commands the


cylinder to retract, the spring and pilot
signal at the opposite end of the speed
valve automatically shift it to send
flow out of the A port directly to tank.
Rated for pressures to 500 bar, four
SV series models handle flows of 40,
50, 120, and 200 lpm. They suit new
installations or retrofits. These compact units are only 115-mm long and
35 mm in diameter. All fluid connections have 38-in. BSP threads. Speed
valves do not affect cylinder retraction.
When power is important
SV-type speed valves are intended
for applications where high-speed
extension is important, not hydraulic
power. A variation is the SVA type
speed valve, which achieves both
high speed and full cylinder force. It
provides high-speed, low-pressure regenerative extension until a predetermined load pressure is encountered.
The valve then automatically shifts to

Functional schematics show operation of Type SVA speed valve. High-speed extension is
achieved by routing flow from the pump and the cylinders rod end into the cylinders cap
end. When a predetermined load pressure is reached, the valve shifts to route only pump
flow to the cap end and routes return flow from the rod end to tank.

be applied.
Operation of speed valves is completely automatic; no additional controls are needed. Typical applications
include presses, waste compactors,
mobile equipment, and machine tools.
