Relief & Sequence Valves
Hydraulic relief valves are one of the most common types of valves to be used in hydraulic systems. In fact, all systems which utilise a fixed-volume pump require a relief valve as a means of protecting the system from an excess of pressure. There are many various designs of relief valves in use, including both direct acting and pilot-operated valves. Both types have their own advantages and disadvantages, and are ideal for use in different systems.
Sequence valves are used when a system features two or more actuators which must move in sequence to ensure optimum operation. With sequence valves, you can rest easy knowing that neither actuator will result in damage to the other. Even if a system features no risk of actuator damage, a sequence valve is a great way to simply control the actions of the actuators themselves.
Pressure Control: Hydraulic Relief And Sequence Valves
Both of these styles of valves are essential when it comes to effectively controlling a hydraulic system’s pressure, and drastically reducing the risk of damage to the system due to too much, or out of sequence, pressure.
Here at Flowfit, we are proud to offer a wide range of relief and sequence valves in a variety of sizes, designs and specifications. It is important to make certain that every component in your hydraulic system is the perfect model for its job, and that has never been truer than with pressure control and system preservation valves.
