A hydraulic valve is used to direct the flow of a liquid medium such as oil through a hydraulic system, with a spool determining the direction of the oil flow. A hydraulic system functions by using valves, so you must always use the appropriate type of hydraulic valve to serve your purpose.
Hydraulic valves are available in many sizes and with various mounting styles such as subplate mounting, flanged mounting or mounting in pipe lines as cartridge valves with a threaded connection. There are three main categories of hydraulic valves: pressure control valves, directional control valves and flow control valves. Each has a different function in a hydraulic system.
Adjusting the direction and flow of the fluid or switching at a certain pressure, check valves allow the free flow of the fluid in one direction and block the flow in the opposite direction. In the case of a pressure control valve switch, the switching pressure can be adjusted. With flow control valves, the flow is regulated by adjusting the size of the bore or orifice.
