Line mounted Shut Off valves are used to manually open or close the flow into a hydraulic circuit. These valves find use in isolation of pressure gauges or to shut off a particular line. The valves can also be used as a safety shut off or to unload pumps at zero pressure where there is a danger of a load spike on startup.
Turning the handle clockwise or anti clockwise closes or opens the valve to flow respectively. The volume flow is zero when the throttle is screwed in (the metal sealing edge seals completely). The valve flow is bidirectional.
The line mounted bodies come with standard pipe threading to allow easy installation in any hydraulic circuit. All steel construction and hardened working parts ensure a reliable and trouble free life.
