Introduction
Vickers directional valves offer versatility of applciation for the many directional control requirements of hydraulic machinery. Ruggedness of design, manufacturing quality, and worldwide parts and service availability maximize uptime, resulting in greater profits for your company.

Manual Lever/Cam/Plunger Valves
These valves are available in an NFPA D03 interface. These valves are rated at flows to 75 l/min (20 USgpm) and 350 bar (5000 psi) maximum pressure. Roller cam, plunger, spring offset, detented, spring centered, knob or lever operated models are available.

Hydraulic Pilot Operated
Available in an NFPA D03 interface. Valves are rated at flows to 151 l/min (40 USgpm) and maximum pressure of 350 bar (5000 psi)

Air Operated
Available in an NFPA D03 interface with rated flows to 75 l/min (20 USgpm) and maximum pressure of 350 bar (5000 psi).

Feature and Benefits
D High pressure and flow capability for maximum cost–effectiveness D Low headloss to minimize power loss D Low–shock characteristics to maximize machine life D Choice of five types of control to satisfy applications where electrical control is not appropriate D Designed and manufactured by Vickers, with over 70 years as the global leader in fluid power and motion control.
