ADJUSTABLE PRIORITY FLOW DIVIDER Brand new PRINCE. Adjustable constant volume priority divider. Use in applications where two circuits are to be supplied by a single pump such as power steering systems. Inlet flow is divided into two flows; priority flow which remains constant and auxiliary circuit. Priority flow can be adjusted from 2 to 14 GPM.
If the device which is to use the priority flow is in a neutral position, not needing oil, then all of the flow will continue to the implement side. Does this go through a relief valve of some type heating up the oil and if it is a relief sping, what pressure is it set at ? Or, is it designed in a manner that lets it flow back to implement without creating much pressure, thus not creating heat in the oil? Thanks
A: If the device connected to the priority flow is in neutral and is a of a Closed Center type, then the priority flow will just be stalled out at pressure and any unused flow will go through the auxiliary path. If the device is of an Open Center type, then the priority flow will pass through and back to tank, and only after fulfilling the priority flow will there be any auxiliary flow. There are no relief valves in this device.

What is the factory setting for the priority flow? Is the valve factory set at a specified Priority plow?
A: These valves are set at a 5 gpm priority flow from the factory.

How many GPM would each full turn of the adjustment screw would flow through the Priority port? Such as how many turns out would I need for a 8 GPM flow on the priority side?
A: We don't have that information. Due to the nature of the construction, the precision of the adjustment isn't defined that tightly. The only way to be sure would be to use a flow meter.

Which direction is the adjustment screw turned to increase the priority flow, CW or CCW looking at the end of the screw?
A: CW to turn the screw in decreases the priority flow, CCW backs the screw out to increase priority flow.l

which port has the higher flow? The excess port or the priority port?
A: As you adjust the valve the volume coming out the priority port is controlled. All the balance of the input would be coming from the excess flow port.
