Directional control valves (DCVs) are one of the most fundamental parts of hydraulic and pneumatic systems. DCVs allow fluid flow (hydraulic oil, water or air) into different paths from one or more sources. DCVs will usually consist of a spool inside a cylinder which is mechanically or electrically actuated. A directional control valve is extended and retracts control for your hydraulic cylinders. It provides a flow path from the pump to the cylinders and a return path from the cylinders to the fluid reservoir.
Type of direction control valve we are dealing in:
- Solenoid Operated Directional Valve
- Solenoid Controlled Pilot Operated Directional Valve
- Pilot Operated Directional Valve
- Poppet Type Directional Valve
