2020 Update – Following on from last year’s blog on overcentre valves and how they work, we catch up with overcentre valves and refresh ourselves on how they have replaced the counterbalance valve as the go-to solution for load control, with the best results being seen when the valve is mounted directly onto the actuator itself.

What are flow control valves and why do you need them in your hydraulic system? In this week’s blog we examine how flow control valves help to regulate system speed and adjust to variances in pressure and temperature.

In our latest blog we look at pilot check valves and how they play a leading role in controlling a hydraulic system’s direction of flow.

Hydraulic systems sometimes have a manual relief valve integrated into the design. This valve relieves built up pressure and is usually deployed when the mechanical system fails at some point and stops the pressure being relieved automatically according to the normal operation of the equipment. Essentially it is a safety feature that does not rely on a mechanical or electronic process but on human interaction which over-rides the system, returning the machinery back to an idle position. In ca...

A recent blog looked at the choice of hydraulic valves offered by Hydraproducts, all of which are CETOP valves (meaning they are interchangeable with the valves used in most hydraulic equipment), but focused mainly on solenoid valves and their function. Today we will look at relief valves and the importance of their function, as well as why those working with hydraulic equipment need to understand how they work and what they are used for.

There are four main types of hydraulic valves that Hydraproducts offer, all of which are compliant with CETOP standards. Hydraulic valves that are recognised by CETOP are interchangeable within most types of hydraulic equipment, making it easy to find a supplier that can provide valves suitable for use in your hydraulic equipment.
