LSVG/LSVHG High-Speed Linear Servo Valves: Uses and Benefits

0 Comment   WHAT’S NEW/ Hydraulic Products Blogs

Electro hydraulic servo valves are electrically operated valves that control how hydraulic fluid is sent to an actuator. These types of valves provide precise control of position, velocity, pressure and force and can deliver instantaneous and accurate responses. LSVG/LSVHG series High-Speed Linear Servo Valves are suitable for use in many […]

Advantages of using a hydraulic system

0 Comment   WHAT’S NEW/ Hydraulic Products Blogs

Many industries use hydraulic systems because they have advantages over mechanical, electrical and pneumatic systems. They transmit power by using the pressure of an in-compressible fluid, usually oil, within a sealed system. They are used everywhere as you can see from the examples below: • Cranes • Forklifts • Hydraulic […]

Repair or Replace: What is the best option for my hydraulic valve?

0 Comment   WHAT’S NEW/ Hydraulic Products Blogs

Even the most reliable and well-made hydraulic valves can become fatigued and break down. A damaged valve can often stop a hydraulic system from operating completely which will cause problems and damage productivity. Many people wonder whether they need to replace their hydraulic valve or whether repairing it will do […]

The difference between low & high-pressure systems

0 Comment   Hydraulic Products Blogs

Many hydraulic system designers tend to immediately go straight for high pressure systems, often because of the components that are tested and are known for working well together. High pressure systems are often designed due to their use of smaller cylinders, which may be a requirement if the system needs […]

Why Cetop Directional Control and Module Valves?

0 Comment   Hydraulic Products Blogs

Directional control valves are one of the most important elements of hydraulic and pneumatic machinery. Directional control valves allow fluid to flow into different paths from single or multiple sources. They are often made up of a spool inside a mechanically or electrically controlled cylinder. The movement of the spool […]

Choosing Hydraulic Valves

0 Comment   Hydraulic Products Blogs

There are five main types of hydraulic valves that that Yuken Europe offer, all of which are Comité Européen des Transmissions Oléohydrauliques et Pneumatiques (CETOP) compliant. Hydraulic valves that are recognised by CETOP, the European fluid power committee, are interchangeable within most types of hydraulic equipment. Valves in hydraulic equipment […]

The use of control valves in hydraulic systems

0 Comment   Hydraulic Products Blogs

Hydraulic power systems are increasingly popular in the worlds of industrial, mobile and aerospace equipment. This is because of the flexibility of hydraulic power systems, where they have a high power-to-weight ratio as well as being able to be stalled, intermittently operated and even reversed, they can also accelerate and […]

The importance of hydraulic relief valves

0 Comment   Hydraulic Products Blogs

A recent blog looked at some of the hydraulic valves offered by Yuken (Europe) all of which were CETOP valves (the interchangeable valves used in most hydraulic equipment today) but that blog focused mainly on directional control and flow control valves and their functions.  Here, we will look at relief […]
