Directional Control Valves
Directional-control valves are one of the most fundamental parts in any hydraulic machinery as well as the fluid power system. These valves are the most widely used products for controlling the start, stop, and direction of fluid flow in a circuit.
Directional Control Valves – Fluid Flow and Positions!
The DCV usually consists of a spool inside a cylinder which is mechanically or electrically controlled. The movement of the spool restricts or permits the flow, thus it controls the fluid flow.
In the video below, you can learn more about how DCV are identified and the number of positions the valve can produce.
