Stack valves combine various control functions into a single assembly using a building block approach. They improve the flexibility of the circuit by stacking different options and functions together. An extensive array of hydraulic circuitry, operators, and flows can be joined into a single assembly.
Stack valves enhance the performance of the system by minimizing the number of potential leakage points in the system. Commonly, stacked directional control valves are coordinated and designed to manage the flow and pressure for each function. By selecting the correct series of valve for the particular flow of the application we will eliminate the concern of high-pressure drops and the resultant heat production in the system. These valves are easily broken into pieces, this makes servicing and upgrading much easier.
Stack valves can be used in the following areas:
Truck loading cranes, skip loaders, excavators, forestry equipment, wheel loaders, fishing boats, foundation drilling rigs, water well drilling rigs, and other specific machinery.
Stack Valves offer convenience in numerous ways such as:
- They provide a high level of flexibility for both builders and designers
- They give individual solutions for the control function
- Stack valves can be extended anytime just by adding a section
