HydraForce offers one of the most comprehensive lines of high quality hydraulic cartridge valves for the mobile and industrial equipment markets. They design and manufacture high performance valves that meet virtually any need encountered in machine design for flow rates of 0.4 to 530 lpm (0.1 to 140 gpm). HydraForce cartridge valves are designed to fit a wide range of industry-common valve cavities.

Their custom manifolds offer no-leak, screw-in componentry, fast and easy valve removal and replacement, and reduced plumbing when compared to traditional hydraulic systems. They also offer a robust line of controllers that are rugged, reliable, and optimized for electro-hydraulic system integration.

Multi-Function Valves
HydraForce multi–function valves incorporate two or more functions into a single valve, allowing for the design of a lighter, more compact valve package.  Multi–function valves reduce manifold size, number of ports, and machining costs, while increasing flow passage efficiency. The result is more responsive machine performance and efficient use of available horsepower.

Solenoid On/Off Valves
For on/off control of hydraulic flow rates up to 300 lpm (80 gpm) and pressures up to 345 bar (5000 psi) continuous and 420 bar (6090 psi) intermittently. Choose from poppet or spool type, normally open or closed, two-, three-, four-way, four-way three-position, five-way three position or six way configurations. Tandem center, open center, closed center or motor spool. Blocking/low flow. Manual override options. Standard (SV series) and high pressure models (HyPerformance™ HSV and SF series).

Directional Valves
For directional control of hydraulic flows up to 280 lpm (74 gpm) and pressures up to 345 bar (5000 psi) continuous and 420 bar (6090 psi) intermittently. Choose from check valves for blocking or load-holding, pilot-operated valves for remote actuation, logic elements for multi-function applications, manual spring-return or pressure actuated, lock valves, shuttle valves, spool-type and poppet-type. Manual rotary valve handles and knob kits available.

Electro-Proportional Valves
For proportional control of hydraulic flow or pressure to cylinders or motors for flow rates up to 150 lpm (80 gpm) and pressures up to 345 bar (5000 psi) continuous and 420 bar (6090 psi) intermittently. Choose from flow control (PV and ZL series); pressure control (TS series); directional and flow control (SP series) and multi-function directional control (SPCL, HSPEC) with built-in load-sensing and flow compensation. Manual override options. Standard and high pressure models (HyPerformance™ HPV, HSP series).

Flow Control Valves
For flow control (FC series) and pressure compensation of hydraulic flows up to 530 lpm (140 gpm) and pressures up to 345 bar (5000 psi) continuous and 420 bar (6090 psi) intermittently. Reverse flow check, needle valves (NV series), pressure compensated flow regulators (FR series), compensating elements (EC series), manual rotary valves (MR series) and flow divider/combiner valves (FD series). Variable or fixed orifice restrictor valves. Optional spring ranges. Standard and high pressure (HyPerformance™ HEC series).

Pressure Control Valves
Pressure control and relief of hydraulic systems for flows up to 303 lpm (80 gpm) and pressures up to 420 bar (6090 psi). RV Series direct-acting or pilot operated option. Bi-directional (CR series) and thermal relief (TR series) valves. Motion control valves (CB series) Sequence valves (PS series). Pressure-reducing valves (PR series).Pressure reducing logic elements (ER series). Kick-down valves (KS series). Unloading valves (UP series). Pressure adjustment, anti-cavitation and PED-certified models available.

Custom Manifolds
Consolidate and optimize hydraulic functions with a custom hydraulic manifold (also called Hydraulic Integrated Circuits or HICs). Steel, aluminum, cast or ductile iron blocks. Anodized or zinc plating for severe environments. FastTrak” service for quick delivery of prototypes. i-Design software available for circuit configuration free of charge.
