Abstract: For controlling mechanical systems through hydraulic equipments, actuators require spool valves i.e. one spool valve is required per actuator with the increase in number of spool valve hence increases cost of the system. In this paper author have designed a hydraulic valve which replaces spool valve and control more than one actuators. Advantages of proposed novel method include: One Indexing valve can control more than one actuator hence reduce the number of valves and cost; improves the speed of the system by changing the indexing speed; reduce manpower.
Keywords: Hydraulic Motor, Hydraulic Pump, Actuators, Spool Valve, Efficiency Etc.

Scope of the Article: Mechanical Design
