060 Series Hydraulic Steering Unit

Product Description

060 integral series power steering units
060 series PSU incorporated the inlet check valve, safety valve, internal checkvalve, cylinder port shock valve and anti-cavitation valve. The design is more compact and convenient.

Incorporated five valves into the PSU, So it is more compact and convenient Low hydraulic noise Special casting design for low pressure drop.
3 basic systems-open center, closed center and load sensing Displacement: 50~500 ml/r

Function of the incorporated valve
Inlet safety valve: Limits maximum pressure drop across the PSU to protect the steering circuit.
Cylinder port shock valve: Protects hoses against pressure surge created by ground forces on the cylinder axle.
Anti- cavitation valve: Protects steering circuit against vacuum (cavitation) conditions.
Inlet check valve: Prevents oil from returning through the PSU when pressure on the cylinder

side is greater than the inlet side. It prevents steering wheel kick.
Internal check valve: Converts the PSU to a hand operated pump for limited manual steering.

The installation and use of full hydraulic steering note

1  installation precautions:

  • (1) When installation steering gear must ensure coaxiality with column, must have a gap of 1 mm in the axial direction. 
  • (2) The depth of screw connection to the steering column tightening steering column is ≤15mm.
  • (3) After steering gear installed, must check steering wheel turns to ensure the flexibility of the return position. 
  • (4) Connection pipeline: P oil port connects to the oil supply pump, T oil port connects to the oil tank, and A and B oil ports respectively connect the left and right oil chambers of the steering gear.

2  oil flow rate considerations:

  • (1) The oil supply circuit connected to the P oil port, the oil flow rate in the pipe is recommended to be ≤1.5m/s.
  • (2) The pressure circuit of the oil cylinder connected to the A and B ports is recommended. The oil flow rate in the pipe is recommended to be ≤4~5m/s.

3  other matters needing attention: 

  • (1) The diameter of the steering wheel must not exceed 500mm. 
  • (2) A return filter with a filter accuracy of 30 μm should be installed in the return line of the steering gear. The position of tank is generally higher than installation position of steering gear, and return pipe is inserted below oil level, so oil can be filled only when the manpower is turned, and air can be prevented from entering the oil line.
  • (3) The oil viscosity of steering gear is 17cst~33cst. It is recommended to use low-condensation hydraulic oil. Steering gear allows normal working oil temperature 20°C to 80°C, and the limit working oil temperature range is -30°C to 100°C. Reminder: In case of abnormal oil temperature, steering performance will decrease.
  • (4) After steering system assembled, it shall be tested: clean oil tank before operation, inject hydraulic oil to the max oil level.Loosen cylinder nipple and allow pump to run at low speed until it is out of oil. Remove link,turn the steering wheel so that the piston reaches left or right position, and then fill the tank to specified level. Tighten all thread connections, connect the piston rod, and check if the steering system is working properly.
  • (5) It must be ensured that the oil is clean to prevent the dirt to cause steering failure. Always check the condition of the filter element and the oil. If necessary, give a replacement. 
  • (6) If steering failure, must be carefully check the reason first. The steering wheel must not be pulled hard, and the steering gear should not be disassembled to avoid damage to parts. It is forbidden for two people to turn the steering wheel at the same time. 

Troubleshooting of Metering Pump 

Matter Causes Troubleshooting
Oil leakage between back cover, stator and valves rear cover stator bolt looseness (or uneven force), or O-rings damaged Evenly tighten the bolt to the specified value, replace the seal (special)
Oil leakage at steering shaft shaft seal ring excessive wear or damage Replace the seal (dedicated)
feels light when turn the steering wheel slowly, feelsheavy when turn the steering wheel quickly steering pump oil supply not enough Check whether oil pump is working properly,(Including liquid level,pump efficiency, pipeline patency, etc.)
There is foam in the oil,irregular sound, the steeringwheel turns and the cylinder does not move There is air in the steering system Eliminating the air in the system, Check the suction pipe leaks or not, Orif the return nozzle is below the liquid level
Heavy steering continues to occur Tank fluid is below the specified position Add oil to prescribed height
Heavy oil viscosity Use oil as required
Feel heavy when turn fast and slow, stressless    Check valve between P,T failure Check the ball. lf the steel ball is missing, then insert the steel ball; lfthe ball gets stuck dirty,it should be cleaned; In both cases,it isnecessary to check the effectiveness of the sealing tape recovery.
Turns light when the load is light,turns heavier whenincreas the load relief valve pressure lower than steering requirement Adjust relief valve pressure to specified value (no more than 16MPa)
Relief valve stucked by dirt, Or spring failure,Or seal is damaged Clean relief valve (required to check the effectiveness of seal taperecovery), or replace the spring or seal
steering wheel can't auto back to middle position Spring broken or deformation Replacement spring
Steering wheel rotate automatic swing to left or right Rotor and linkage axes are not positioned correctly Stop immediately! Align the teeth of the linkage shaft with rotor splines
No end point Low pressure on relief valve Appropriately increase relief valve pressure
Steering wheel rotates after turning to the end position Low pressure on shock valves Appropriately increase shock valves pressure
when machine is off, turn the wheel, cylinder not move radial clearance or axial clearance is too large between radial and stator Replace rotor and stator
Low viscosity of oil Change oil
Vehicle deviation Or the cylinder is slow when turningthe steering wheel shock valves failure (ball caught by dirty, or spring failure, or seal damage) Clean shock valves,replace spring or seal
pressure of Steering system is able to adjust Spring broken Change spring
not good seals at safety valve make the valve always open replace parts
Valve core stuck due to burr or oil stain Remove, inspect, repair
Poor spool operation Check if the spool is stuck by dirty
Spring bent or too soft Change spring
Oil is not clean, valve plug orifice is blocked Replace the cleaning fluid and unblock the orifice
