IMH 8-mm (0.315-in) shuttle valves from The Lee Co. feature a compact, nondetented, selective design and improved flow capacity over existing models. The compact 6 gal/min (23 L/min) shuttle valves are 16 mm (0.63 in) long and are suitable for auxiliary functions such as hydraulically released, spring-applied brakes and load sensing applications. Valves also solve hydraulic isolation problems in manifolds and feature consistent long-term performance. The cartridge-style valve is constructed entirely of stainless steel and installs into a drilled hole, eliminating the need for threads, O-rings, or in-house designs.
