use and maintenance

The Oleodinamica Marchesini product range includes different types of valves, manufactured to be considered as standard items and they are not produced specifically as component designed to carry out safety functions. For this reason they are excluded from the domain of the ECC European Directive 2006/46/CE because any examples in attachment V of Machinery Directive could be apply (the valve cannot be considered as a logical block) and nor paragraph 5 an 8 of attachment V could not be applied, as the valve is not equipped with any kind of auxiliaries implement for damages bearing.

VALVES WITHIN MANIFOLDS OR BODIES:

they consist of a body with a cartridge or loose parts fitted inside. The valve housing is normally manufactured in steel (9SMn- Pb30 o 37) protected by external anticorrosion zinc coating treatment or burnished. The valves in manifolds have the ports for the connection into the hydraulic circuit. The ports are normally BSPP types, be- tween 1/4” to 2” size. Other ports are available upon request (metric, NPT or specific flangeable version).

CARTRIDGE VALVES:

these valves must be installed into specific cavities or specific manifolds. They are manufactured in steel, whereas the internal components are made of hardened steel depending according to their final use. Lubricate the cartridge seals before assembling, insert the cartridge manually and screw it until the operator feel the seals resistance. Lock the cartridge with a torque wrench and set the valve on the test ring.

FLUIDS

It must have physical lubricating and chemical properties suitable for use in hydraulic systems such as, for example: Mineral oil fluids HL (DIN 51524 part 1) Mineral oil fluids HLP (DIN 51524 part 2) Viscosity class: with ISO-DIN, the viscosity class is expressed by ISO-VG number; the number indicates the average kinematic viscosity at 40°C in mm2/s or centiStoks (cSt).

CONTAMINATION, FILTRATION:

It’s well established that fluid contamination is the most likely cause of malfunction or failure in hydraulic systems and reduces security and reliability of components and systems. Metal particles flowing throughout the circuit scratch moving surface so that contamination level , if not controlled, increases very rapidly.

LEAKAGE

The components produced by Oleodinamica Marchesini Srl are sealed by washers or metal, plastic or elastomeric seals located on ledges or special seats. No sealants or sealing materials should therefore be added on the threads.

GASKETS:

are used to realize seal therefore they are very important. In case of replacement, please contact our technical department. O-ring: Acryl-Nitril Butadiene Rubber NBR (BUNA-N) standard for temperature between -20°C and +100°C. Fluorocarbo FPM (Viton) and other compounds are available on request. Back-up rings: PTFE, Nylon.

STOCKING OF NEW VALVES

Store the new valves with their own protection systems supplied (plastic caps or shrink wrap), far from the direct sun light or source of heat or ozone and kept in a dry place at a temperature between -20°C and +50°C:
