Press Release Summary:
Models CDS 60 and CDS 100 have inlet flows of 60 and 100 lpm, respectively. Control handles mount in various orientations for flexibility. Modular construction allows for control of various work functions from one valve stack. Thicker end sections reduce stack distortion, which nearly eliminates spool bind and external leaks between sections. Numerous spool and control options are available, including on/off electrical control. Applications include construction equipment.

Sauer-Danfoss Expands Hydraulic Control Valves to North American Market
Two models proven in South America offer more power and flexibility
Ames, Iowa, USA, (April 29, 2003) - Sauer-Danfoss Inc. (NYSE: SHS; FSE: SAR), a worldwide supplier of systems and components for off-road equipment, has introduced two directional control valves for North American use in the construction and agricultural mobile equipment industries. The CDS 60 is a 60 liters-per-minute (lpm) inlet flow valve, and the CDS 100 is a 100 lpm inlet flow valve. They have been a cornerstone component in the South American heavy equipment industry and are now available in North America.
"They've been used extensively in Brazil and have become the market leader in South America," said Rob Arndt, Product Portfolio Manager. "It's a logical step for us to use our wide distribution capabilities to expand into the U.S. and Canadian markets."
The control valves, already proven in South America, are cost effective and easy to install. They offer improved flow control, retaining more power for the hydraulic system. The control handles can be mounted in various orientations, giving equipment designers more flexibility in applications, and offering operators easier handling.
"These directional control valves offer fluid control at an affordable price, and are now readily available in North America with the Sauer-Danfoss quality and delivery standards," said Kells Hall, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Americas.
The CDS valves' modular construction allows for control of various work functions from one valve stack, thereby simplifying machine design, plumbing and pump applications. Using thicker
end sections reduces stack distortion, which nearly eliminates spool bind and external leaks between sections. Numerous spool and control options are available, including on/off electrical control.
Sauer-Danfoss, Inc. is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture, and sale of engineered hydraulic and electronic systems and components, for use primarily in applications of mobile equipment.
