Module

HYD 6 – Construct circuit with a check valve

Overview

You will be learning towards the outcome “Construct circuit with a check valve”

Key and critical concepts you will learn

You will be learning towards the outcome “Construct a circuit with a check valve”. Whilst learning towards the outcome you will be required to achieve the following:

  • Construct a circuit with the relevant valves.
  • Know the purpose of a check valve / non-return valve.
  • Know the purpose of a pilot operated check valve / non-return valve.

On completion of this module, the learner must be able to:

  • Indicate flow when the directional control valve / valves are operated.
  • State the purpose of a check valve / non-return valve.
  • State the purpose of a pilot operated check valve / non-return valve.

During this process you must adhere to certain specified requirements as listed in the Module.

Tools, consumables, equipment and machinery required

  • Schematic diagram
  • Training panel
  • A 4/3-way directional control valve
  • Pressure gauge
  • Double acting cylinder
  • Hydraulic hoses
  • Pressure relieve valve
  • Check Valve
  • Pilot operated check valve

Prerequisite modules

ST- Safety

Application

Check valves / Non-return valves block the flow in one direction and permit free flow in the other direction
