The flow dividers type TQ divide (collect) total flow entering (exiting) atport C. The distribution is independent of working pressure at ports Aand B, and may be divided equally or unequally in predetermined portions.
The flow divider type TV features priority division, i.e. variable flow entering port C is divided where partial flow QA , through port A, is keptconstant and the residual flow, QB , exits port B. As soon as one actuator´s movement is stopped the flow to the other is either reduced to a minimalflow (type TQ) or completely reduced to leakage flow (type TV). It ispossible to overcome this design feature by creating flow via a pressure limiting valve. These valves are used for applications where one pump is required to supply two unevenly loaded consumers, which must be driven simultaneously and independently (type TQ) or if one actuator requires priority flow (type TV) .
