Maximum flexibility

PVG 32 is designed for maximum flexibility. Proven PVG technology that saves you time. No matter which combination of valves is specified, the compact, external dimensions of the valve remain unchanged. Advanced electronic control can be achieved with our PVE electrohydraulic actuators.


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.
