Hydraulic Valves & Their Functions

Hydraulic Valves

At Hoses Direct, you can find a large range of valves used in a variety of industries, including but not limited to: manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, marine, oil and gas, chemical, food and beverages, all at discounted prices. The use of valves is essential in many applications, they are designed to control the flow of a fluid in order to regulate pressure, direction, and volume. Valves are used to ensure system safety and efficiency, and can be used to prevent back flow from occurring in a system. Valves play an internal part of a system and are also important for preventing contamination of systems and maintaining optimal system performance.

What are the different purposes and types of valves available:

Ball Valves: These are quarter-turn valves with a round handle that is used to open and close the valve by turning it 90 degrees. 

Check Valves: These valves allow fluid to flow in one direction and prevent it from flowing in the other direction.

Butterfly Valves: Butterfly valves are quarter-turn, rotational motion valves that are used to start, stop, and regulate flow.

Gate Valves: These valves are used to fully open and close the flow of a liquid or gas. 

Globe Valves: Globe valves are linear motion valves that are used to regulate flow of liquids and gases. 

Solenoid Valves: These are electrically operated valves that use a solenoid to control the flow of fluids.

Pressure Relief Valves: These valves are used to prevent over-pressurisation of a system. 

Flow Control Valves: These valves are used to regulate the flow of liquids or gases. 

Diaphragm Valves: These valves are used to control the flow of fluids by using a flexible diaphragm. 

Float Valves: These valves are used to maintain a specific level of liquid in a tank or vessel.

Safety Valves: Are designed to automatically control the flow of fluids in a system in order to avoid potentially hazardous situations.

Cast iron Valves: Often used for their durability and reliability, as well as their ability to withstand high temperatures and pressures.

Non Return Valves: These valves are designed to prevent back flow from occurring in a system. Non-return valves are typically used in water systems, fuel systems, and medical equipment.

Stainless Steel Valves: Provide superior corrosion resistance and durability in extreme environments. Stainless steel valves are commonly used in harsh industrial and marine applications.

Valves are used in a wide variety of applications, such as water systems, fuel systems, medical equipment, industrial, marine and automotive applications which control the flow of a fluid in order to regulate pressure, direction, and volume. Hoses Direct offer valves in many different shapes and sizes, from a variety of materials such as stainless steel, brass, steel and cast iron.
