Flashcards in Module 7 Deck (31):
a valve that limits and regulates the pressure and controls the flow rates of fluid in a hydraulic system
a valve that protects a hydraulic system against excess pressure by gradually opening to relieve pressure
a valve used when it is necessary to have one cylinder actuated either before or after another
a valve used to support a hoisted load or to prevent uncontrolled fall
a valve used to limit the pressure in one part of the system to below that of the main part of the system
Do pressure-control valves have any partially open positions between fully closed and fully open?
Are pressure-relief valves normally open or normally closed?
Name the two general categories into which all relief valves can be divided.
