I'm working with system that would need a FAST reciprocating hydraulic cylinder. Valve would need to work with no electrical power.. only way to make it is to use pilot operated valves.. I think :lol: We actually have a cylinder that can run fast and we need it to go 600 strokes / min.

BUT.. most valves break down after some time or cannot be operated at those speeds at all (600cycles/min). Valve that I would need to find is normal 2 position directional control valve for the cylinder (pilot operated probably) but have any of you seen fast enough valve for doing this :roll:

valve need to be able to flow over 150l / min and pressure of about 200-250bar :D

Please let me know if any of you know a manufacturer of fast hydraulic valves

This is for a project at work and I will try to help with it :bounce:

A diesel fuel injector is faster than that (they run up to about 4,000 cycles/sec) but the flow and input pressure (~20 ATM?) probably isn't high enough. There are some very high pressure diesel injectors (up to 10K ATM).

Maybe a reciprocating pop-off?

thanks, but I would need something like 4/2 or 5/2 directional control valve to drive the cylinder :roll:
