Hydraulic Monoblock Solenoid Control Valve, 1 Spool, 13 GPM, 12V DC
Hydraulic Monoblock Valves are a style of Hydraulic Control valve. These valves are used to start and stop fluid flow into hydraulic cylinders or hydraulic motors. The number of cylinders or motors that a control valve can operate depends on the number of spools on the valve. The flow rates listed is the maximum allowed GPM (Gallons Per Minute) that can be put through a valve. A common example of a hydraulic control valve is the loader valve on a tractor. These valves have power beyond Capability (Power Beyond Adapter Sleeve is required SKU: P40-PB), as well as the ability to operate as a closed-center valve (Closed-Center Plug Required SKU: P40-CC).
Will this valve work for my application?
You’ll need to answer the following questions:
- Is the flow through this valve less than 13 GPM? If not, then we have larger Z80 valves that can accommodate up to 21 GPM, and Z100 Valves if the flow is between 21 GPM and 27 GPM. If installing on a tractor please check tractor-data.com, it will say under the hydraulics – “Pump Flow” – of the data sheet. The GPM flow may be printed on the pump itself.
- Do you have an open-center hydraulic system? If you’re installing this on a tractor please check tractor-data.com, it will say under the hydraulics of the data sheet. These valves are setup for use on open-center hydraulic systems. If you do have a closed-center system you’ll need to get the closed center adapter plug. NOTE: None of our valves have load-sensing capabilities.
- Do you have other valves downstream from this valve (Examples include: Other Control Valves, Rear Remote Valve, Backhoe Valve, 3-Point Valve)? If so, you’ll need the power beyond adapter sleeve to provide pressure and flow to those valves. Note: This is only needed on open-center hydraulic systems. If you have a closed-center system, you will tee into a pressure line to connect other valves.
- Are you operating a hydraulic cylinder or a hydraulic motor? If you’re operating a hydraulic cylinder you’ll need to get “A” spools for double acting cylinders, if you’re operating a hydraulic motor you’ll need “D” spools for motor control. Note: “D” spools cannot be used for operating hydraulic cylinders and “A” spools cannot be used to operate hydraulic motors.
- Do you need a switch or do you want to provide your own? This valve can be purchased with a spring-to-center rocker switch. These are momentary push-button switches that allow you to extend/retract cylinder or turn on/off hydraulic motors. As soon as the button is released fluid the flow into the cylinder or motor will stop. These switches with this valve include the 10′ Harness, giving you 12′ between switch and valve. If you’d rather build or provide your own switch that can be done as well. You will connect your power and ground to the two parallel posts (Do not use third post).
