Directional Control Valves (Industrial)
Solenoid valves are common type of valve which are controlled through electric currents. They are commonly hydraulic systems to control cylinders, larger industrial valves and hydraulic motors.
We Supply and Stock different brands of solenoid valves. These valves are interchangeable with each other’s.
Below we show the most common choices and options available to choose from depending on size, coil options spool type, flow path, selected and Voltage.
Ball Valves are commonly used all over the world in hydraulic circuits. They are used as shut off valves, flow control valves or directional valves.
We recommend Stauff Ball Valves.

Pressure Control Valves
Pressure-control valves are found in virtually every hydraulic system, and they assist in a variety of functions, from keeping system pressures safely below a desired upper limit to maintaining a set pressure in part of a circuit. Types include relief, reducing, sequence, counterbalance, and unloading. All of these are normally closed valves, except for reducing valves, which are normally open. For most of these valves, a restriction is necessary to produce the required pressure control. These valves come in the form of Cetop Sandwich Valves, inline and cartridge valves.
We use and recommend Sun Cartridge Valves as they accommodate all scenarios. There is big variety of types and sizes, for further information please contact us or refer to Sun Website: http://www.sunhydraulics.com/models/cartridges/pressure-control
We also Supply and Stock different brands of Pressure Control Valves. For more information please call us on 03 9460 2377
Flow Control Valves
Flow control valves limit the amount of flow in a main or branch hydraulic circuit to control actuator speed. We offer different brands of both “flow” controls and “throttles,” to satisfy the widest range of customer needs.
Our flow controls offer an integral hydro-stat and incorporate sharp edged orifices to reduce the effect of temperature and consumer load changes on a field set flow values. Available with rotary knobs and key locks, hydraulic flow control valves can be field set, locked, and remain tamper resistant. Throttle valves also incorporate sharp- edged orifices; however, lack of a hydro-stat limits stability in ever-changing load conditions.
We use and recommend Stauff and Sun valves.

Proportional valves are electronically actuated valves for which the output value – pressure or flow – is changed proportionally to the electronic signal applied usually 0 -10 V and 2 – 20 mA and they come as Cetop standard valves or Cartridge valves.
We use and recommend Sun’s Cartridge Valves. Please refer to Sun website: http://www.sunhydraulics.com/models/cartridges/electro-proportional
These valves can be manufactured into specific design manifolds to save space, weight, hoses and cost.
The sequence valve is used to ensure that a certain pressure level is achieved in one branch of the circuit before a second branch is activated. Consider a machining operation where the workpiece must be clamped with a certain force before it is extended to make contact with the cutting tool. If the piece is not securely fastened, it can slip and damage both the tool and the piece.
We use and recommend Sun’s Sequence Cartridge Valves.

Counterbalance valves will positively hold a pressurized load and will control the motion of the load based on application of a pressure signal to the pilot port. Counterbalance valves are available as individual cartridges or standard cartridge-in-body (CIB) packages. A typical circuit application for a counterbalance valve contains a pump, directional control valve, and an actuator.
We use and recommend Sun’s Valves. Please refer to Sun website: http://www.sunhydraulics.com/models/cartridges/load-holding/counterbalance
Pressure relief valves are valves for oil hydraulic systems to control pressure by opening the outlet when the inlet pressure exceeds the designed limit.
We use and recommend Sun’s Relief Cartridge Valves. We also Supply and Stock different brands.

These valves come in big variety of different types and options! Need help selecting? Speak to an experienced senior engineer, call us on 03 9460 2377
Hydraulic check valves are unidirectional flow devices used primarily in hydraulic systems to eliminate potential damage caused by fluid back pressure.
We use and recommend Stauff and Sun valves.
