FIXED FLOW PRIORITY DIVIDER WITH PRIORITY PRESSURE RELIEF Brand new Prince model RD-405R-5 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.
Can I put this between the pump and two control valves? One control valve would receive the 5 GPM, and the other would receive the excess? Then I can operate the motors accordingly with the control valve up to the flow this provides?

Does this limit the first output line to 1/2 of the current inflow (of 8 gpm) to say 4 gpm and 4 gpm on the second line or is it 5 gpm on the first and 3 gpm on the second?
A: The priority valve sends all flow up to 5 gpm to the priority circuit, and any flow past that to the excess circuit.
