Directional Control Valves & Valve Packages | Australian Made
In the 1970s Oilpath founder Brian Baker saw the need for directional control valves to be delivered in a timely, responsive manner here in Australia and the OP20 was born, instantly becoming the industry benchmark.
Since then we have continued to provide quality hydraulic solutions products to the Australian and global markets to satisfy customer demand. Today the OP10, 11 & 20 remain an industry standard, the valves can be manually, pneumatically, electric over pneumatic and hydraulically / electronically actuated. Plus, the OP range of valve has a wide range of spool options such as Single, Double, Motor and other types of spool which can have a range of positioning options such as 3 Way Detent, Spring Centre to “A” or “B” with detent, etc.
Our Hydraulic Valves are all Australian made in our Adelaide factory by our team who understand the diverse needs of our customers and partners. The company has seen the potential for the engineering innovation design and flexibility offered by cost-effective cartridge valves, hydraulic manifolds and propriety product solutions, some of these can be integrated with the Oilpath OP range of directional control valves.
What are Hydraulic Cartridge Valves?
The term cartridge valves commonly refers to pressure, directional and flow control valves that screw in to a threaded cavity.
Hydraulic cartridge valves sometimes known as slip-on valves, 2/2-way valves or logic valves are extremely important for all kinds of hydraulic systems in a wide range of industries, they are a unique subset of directional control valves which are essential for the movement of hydraulic liquid through a system.
