FIXED FLOW PRIORITY DIVIDER WITH PRIORITY PRESSURE RELIEF Brand new Prince model RD-405R-2 fixed flow priority divider valve. Use to split pump output into a fixed, priority flow and a balance flow for use in the primary hydraulic circuit. Pressure relief valve on the priority port is factory preset to 1,500 PSI.
I have a tractor with 18 GPM 2500 PSI hydraulic system. I would like to tap into this system to run the power steering system as the power steering pump is bad. If the priority port relief pressure is set lower than 2500 will the rest of the system still build 2500 psi?
A: No. The pressure will go through the path of least resistance. If the priority relief is set below the system pressure it will constantly be relieving.
