How does a hydraulic valve work?
Apparently, you can use hydraulic actuators to switch at a particular pressure or adjust the direction and fluid flow. Surprisingly, all valves operate differently when it comes to the hydraulic system.
For instance, check valves allow free flow in one direction and block flow in the other direction. On the other hand, the directional control valves pass on the pressure medium in an orderly manner to a particular direction. Then there are the pressure control valves that switch or control at a specific pressure. Another, the flow control valves do flow regulation by adjusting the bores’ size.
