A Hydraulic Directional Control Valve properly directs the flow of a liquid medium, usually oil, through your hydraulic system. The direction of the oil flow is determined by the position of a spool. A hydraulic system can only function – as per requirements – by using valves. Thus, you should always look for the correct type of hydraulic valve to serve your intended purpose.Hydraulic valves are available in a variety of sizes. The size required is determined by the maximum flow of the hydraulic system through the valve and the maximum pressure in the hydraulic system. Hydraulic valves are available with different mountings: e.g. mounting in pipe lines, threaded connection as cartridges, subplate mounting, etc.
