Multiple Section Directional Valves
These manually and hydraulically actuated, spring centered, spool type valves are designed for pressures up to 210 bar (3000 psi) and flows up to 265 l/min (70 USgpm). They are comprised of sections that are internally connected to common pressure and tank return
passages. Seals between the sections seal the connecting passages, and the sections are held together by studs and nuts.
Valve sections are available as assembled banks, and as separate sections for customers to assemble into banks or to add to or change the functions of a bank. The following illustration shows the construction and assembly of a three-section valve.
