The DCF directional flow control valve combines the features of a four-way directional control valve, a full range pressure compensated by-pass type flow control valve and a pilot operated pressure relief valve, all in one compact package. This valve reduces the number of fittings, plumbing and potential leakage points in hydraulic circuits. The manual handle provides fine metering to either port. Flow to the work port is directly proportional to the movement of the lever. Flow out of each work port is constant regardless of load changes. This allows the customer to maintain smooth and constant movement of a cylinder or motor. Every DCF comes standard with a pilot operated relief. The tank port must be plumbed directly back to tank.
