NFPA Releases Technical Report
November 26, 2013—A new ISO Technical Report has recently been published and is now available from the National Fluid Power Association (NFPA):
ISO/TR 17209:2013, Hydraulic fluid power – Two-, three- and four-port screw-in cartridge valves – Cavities with ISO 725 (UN and UNF) threads
This Technical Report specifies the dimensions and provides other data relating to cavities with ISO 725 UN and UNF threads in which two-, three- and four-port screw-in cartridge valves are mounted in order to ensure dimensional interchangeability. These cartridge valves are generally used in industrial, agricultural, mining and mobile equipment.
Benefits: This dimensional interchangeability technical report benefits users by allowing them to purchase hydraulic two-, three- and four-port screw-in cartridge valves from multiple suppliers, and manufacturers of these valves to benefit from economies of scale afforded by the standard.
