Hydraulic Valve Repair

Hydraulic valves are responsible for directing the flow of fluids, usually oil, via hydraulic systems. A spool’s position determines the direction taken by the flowing fluids. Hydraulic systems only work using valves based on certain requirements. This means that hydraulic valves serve various purposes hence you should find one that suits your needs. Your hydraulic system’s maximum pressure and flow determines the size of valves your system needs.


Hydraulic valves come in all sorts of sizes based on various international standards. They also come in varying mounting styles such as cartridge valves with threaded connections, pipe line mountings, flanged mounting, sub-plate mounting, etc. There are three major categories of hydraulic valves, namely: pressure, directional and flow control valves. Each valve category plays a distinct role within hydraulic systems.

What’s more, different valves work in distinct ways. Whereas check valves allow fluid flow in a single direction, pressure control valves allow fluid in one direction, but change direction when a specific pressure is reached. In the latter case, you can easily adjust your valve’s switching pressure. On the other hand, directional control valves direct fluid flows to certain directions whereas flow control valves control fluid flow through orifice or bore size adjustments.

Types of Hydraulic Valves

Proportional and Flow Control Valves

Just like the majority of standard hydraulic valves, proportional control valves regulate proportional fluid flow rather than gradual flow. Proportional directional, proportional flow and proportional pressure make up proportional control valves.

Flow control valves either increase or decrease throttle fluid flow to determine hydraulic actuators’ movement speed. Throttle and pressure compensated valves are examples of flow control valves.

The essence of hydraulic valves in hydraulic systems is clear at this point. This means if they fail, your hydraulic system’s proper functioning is impaired. As a result, your system can realize reduced performance and thus production. Your company can also suffer serious losses in terms of customers and finances.

Directional and Pressure Control Valves

With directional control valves, the start, directional change and stop of fluid flow within your hydraulic systems are under control. Directional control valves include spool, poppet, non-return and check valves.

Pressure control valves work by switching at certain pre-defined pressure levels. This can either occur suddenly through a fixed throttle switch or gradually via variable throttle controls. Relief and reducing functions and fixed throttle are examples of pressure control valves.
