DCV08 Valve symbol
An in-line housed, double pilot-operated, hydraulic check valve for blocking or
load-holding circuits.

The DCV08 allows flow from V ports to C ports, while normally blocking flow in
the opposite direction. Flow will be allowed from C to V when pressure is applied
to the opposite side V port. This valve has a 4:1 pilot ratio, meaning that at least
one-fourth of the load pressure held at either C port is required at the opposite V port
to open the flow passage. The check is spring-biased at 1.7 bar (25 psi) to assure
holding in static or no-load conditions.
An optional sealed pilot piston with check spring bias of 6.9 bar (100 psi) is available.

• Hardened seat for long life and low leakage.
• Optional sealed piston.
• Optional spring ranges.
• Low pressure drop.
• Check section is serviceable as a cartridge.
