Hydraulic valves are essential components in hydraulic systems that control the flow, direction, and pressure of hydraulic fluid. They regulate the movement and operation of hydraulic actuators, such as cylinders and motors, by opening, closing, or redirecting fluid passages.
The OstBridge team has accumulated a wealth of experience in the sales of hydraulic components, with a particular specialization in hydraulic valves. We have fostered robust partnerships with renowned manufacturers in the hydraulic equipment industry. As a trusted know-how provider, our dedicated hydraulic department is well-equipped to support customers in selecting the precise hydraulic valves that align with their unique requirements.
Hydraulic valves control the flow and pressure of hydraulic fluid through various mechanisms. Directional control valves determine the fluid's path, pressure control valves maintain the desired pressure, and flow control valves regulate the flow rate. Valves are actuated manually or through solenoids or other electrical means.
There are various types of hydraulic valves, including directional control valves, pressure control valves, flow control valves, check valves, relief valves, and proportional valves. Each type serves specific functions in controlling and regulating hydraulic fluid. The table lists different types of hydraulic valves, along with their advantages and common applications
When selecting a hydraulic valve, consider factors such as the desired flow rate, pressure range, valve actuation method (manual, solenoid, etc.), compatibility with the fluid, and the specific requirements of your hydraulic system. Consulting with hydraulic experts or manufacturers can help determine the most suitable valve for your needs.
Routine maintenance involves checking for leaks, monitoring valve performance, inspecting seals and connections, and ensuring proper lubrication. Regular fluid analysis and filter changes are also important to prevent contamination. Following manufacturer guidelines and recommendations is crucial for proper valve maintenance.
