HYDAC Releases LM06W Manually Operated Directional Control Valve

HYDAC is pleased to announce the introduction of the LM06W series of manually operated poppet valves. The series has a number of benefits to the user, which include:

  • Push to operate, spring return
  • Normally closed poppet valve
  • Leak tight even at high pressures
  • Robust simple operation
  • Use for emergency pilot apply/release for safe equipment operation

Gordon Dow, Design Engineering Manager at HYDAC’s Hydraulic Division in Glendale Heights, IL commented, “A simple manually operated poppet valve, yes, but the beauty of it is the ultra compact footprint. Our customers can install these valves almost anywhere, thereby increasing the presence of emergency flow stops and starts for a safer overall operation. In addition, the valve is affordable and; as it’s made right here in Glendale Heights, available.”
