Hydraulic advice needed


scott p:
Hydraulic advice needed :  I want to use a open center control valve in conjunction with a hydraulic motor that is down stream from the valve. In other words the fluid would pass through the open center valve and on to the motor. The idea is the control valve could act as a bypass to stop the motor if needed by shorting the fluid directly back to the reservoir. I am not a hydraulic person but it seems to me the open center would not restrict or cause unwanted reactions from the motor.

Also the valve I have in mind has a built in relief valve but I suspect it is designed to protect the spool valve and would not function with what I have in mind.

Problem solved, a tee and a couple ball valves.
