Construction machinery

The demands placed on hydraulic valves in the construction machinery sector are extremely high – after all, the toughest working conditions require extremely robust equipment and reliable technology. Many machinery manufacturers are increasingly switching from tried and tested, purely hydraulic steering to electrohydraulic controls. The trend towards decentralized steering is also noticeable in this sector. Supply pressures of up to 350 bar, or even higher, exert considerable strain on hydraulic control valves in particular. Precision and endurance simply cannot be compromised in such situations. Thomas high-pressure valves offer the best possible performance in the most adverse environmental conditions.
