FC10-20 Screw-In, cartridge style, needle type, flow control cartridge valve is used for hydraulic fluid flow control, usually mounted on the back line of hydraulic circuit to strict the flow rate, keeps the stead flow and reduce the shock from hydraulic hose while operation.

Finotek FC10-20 cartridge flow control valve is also called throttle valves and throttle check valve uses for control the flow rate in a ratio. The cartridge flow adjustment valve has the check function as well to stop the reverse flow, therefore, the valve can be installed in the return pipe as throttle valve or in front of the pump as check valve temporarily.

The cartridge flow valve FC10-20 series is not the function of negative feedback, can not compensated the speed instability cause by different load weight. This cartridge flow valve is generally used for the situation where is a requirement for little change load weight and not critical for speed stability. Finotek flow adjustment cartridge valve is lower in throttle noise, since all the throttle parts are grinding to precisely fit dimensions. The surface of the valve are zinc or black galvanization.
