Maximum flexibility

PVG 48 is designed for maximum flexibility based on proven PVG technology and modularity that simplifies the design process, manufacturing and aftermarket activities. PVG 48 enables flow up to 180 l/min work port flow and the complete actuator portfolio from PVG 32 can be applied, enabling a seamless integration with the pre-compensated valve familiy. It is directly stackable with PVG 16 and PVG 32 and can be stacked with PVG 128/256 via an interface plate.

Seamless Integration

Three valve sizes (PVG 16-32-48) can now be directly stacked into 1 valve group enabling customized solution for your exact and specified application control needs in a compact and cost-efficient package.


By using PVG load-sensing technology in combination with a variable displacement pump, it’s possible to achieve a significant reduction in energy loss. PVG valves also reduce heat generation and increase efficiency and power density, which helps OEMs to meet the challenges posed by new diesel engine emissions legislation.
