Selector / diverter /changeover valves are used extensively in front end and telescopic loaders, forklift trucks etc. to provide additional functions on the machine. For example a valve fitted to the end of a telescopic loader boom can switch between “tilt” and “grab”, making use of the same directional valve (and one pair of hoses down the boom), with a simple electrical switch on the directional valve lever switching the selector valve solenoid.
The Roquet range of selector valves feature high-strength cast-iron bodies cast in our own foundry and casehardened close-tolerance spools for long life and low leakage. Particular care has been taken in the design of the spool and the cored flowpassages in the cast body to give good combined flow/pressure performance
