There are many important parts in a forklift’s operations, but one of the most important parts that any business owner should know about is the hydraulic control valve. Here’s everything people need to know about hydraulic control valves.
First and foremost, a hydraulic control valve directs the flow of a liquid medium through a hydraulic system. The liquid medium usually used here is oil, and the oil flow direction affects the position of the spool in the hydraulic system. In fact, there cannot be a hydraulic system without the use of these hydraulic control valves. With the right required size and maximum flow of the hydraulic system through the hydraulic control valves, a forklift’s mast is positioned at its optimal shape.
You should know that the hydraulic control valves in the market are available in varied sizes. With the help of the multiple international standards, these hydraulic valves are regulated to make sure that they undergo the safety measures to make the forklifts run efficiently. These valves come in different mounting styles, and one of them would be the valves that are mounted in pipelines. There are also valves that are designed as cartridge valves, subplate mounting or flange mounting.
The hydraulic control valves are subdivided into three major categories. These categories are directional control valves, pressure control valves and flow control valves. These different valves run different operations and functions in a forklift’s hydraulic system. The different valves in forklifts also function a variety of ways. For example, the check valves permit free flow that’s directed in one path while blocking the flow in the opposite direction. The directional control valve, on the other, the hand is the main part responsible to pass pressure from one point to another in an orderly fashion. The pressure control valves are the ones responsible for switching or controlling the variety of orf pressure that runs in the forklift’s hydraulic system.
It should be added, too, that the most common hydraulic control valves today are the pressure relief valve and pressure reducing valve. These hydraulic valves keep the forklifts at their most efficient and increase the forklift’s productivity levels.
Another thing forklift owners should understand about hydraulic control valves is that they are also the mechanism that start, stop and change the various direction of a pressure medium, such as hydraulic oil. For this reason alone, these control valves are referred to in the industry as switching valves.
Forklift specialists should know that 5-way directional control valves in a forklift’s hydraulic system should be checked often and be tested for errors and failures. It is important to trust a service provider to check the forklift’s hydraulic system. Getting the right hydraulic control valves specialist can save a forklift operator in costs. It must be noted that the right service officer can understand the complete mechanism of a hydraulic control valve and know how to repair the parts without increasing the repair costs.
