The Caterpillar Pilot Valve is utilized for remote control of directional valves, cylinders, pumps or motors. The pilot valve is a pressure-reducing valve that is placed directly under the input handle, pedal, or treadle. The Cat PV Series achieves both quick response and low effort capabilities through a number of proprietary design, tooling, and manufacturing techniques. Thus the Cat PV Series can be actuated with low efforts while being strong enough to withstand hundreds of pounds of external force. Additionally, the Cat PV Series provides exceptional versatility through mounting options and modulation flexibility. Additional features include cartridge serviceability and special design features which lower the potential of contamination. The Caterpillar PV was designed with high quality and reliability thus ideal for applications working within rugged environments.
