Aerospace Directional Control & Hydraulic Valves

Controlling the flow of hydraulic fluid to functional components in an aerospace hydraulic system is a critical operation. Sargent Aerospace has been designing, qualifying, and manufacturing aerospace directional control valves since the 1940s. Customer specifications often require hydraulic control valves to withstand multiple thousands of pounds of fluid pressure, be installed in a small envelope, and be weight-optimized. Sargent engineers routinely work with our customers to help define specifications based on application requirements. Sargent has successfully designed and manufactured some of the most complex hydraulic valves for the most demanding applications and Sargent valves can be found on a number of commercial and military aircraft in service today.

If you have questions about hydraulic control valves for your project Sargent is happy to help. Contact Sargent to speak with an experienced applications engineer.
