The hydraulic distributor KS180 is used for switching on/off and directing the working fluid between head flow generators (hydraulic pumps), head flow consumers (hydraulic cylinders, motors, etc.), and the tank.


KS180 is a simple, compact and heavy duty designed sectional valve from 1 to 12 sections for open and closed center hydraulic systems. It is fitted with a main pressure relief valve and a load check valve on every working section. It is currently available with parallel circuit. Optional carry-over port. Available manual, pneumatic, proportional hydraulic spool control kits. Spool diameter is 20 mm.
