State of the art manufacturing technologies enable Cat valves to deliver superior machine performance and operator control.
Quality materials and metallurgy provide increased strength:
High strength material allows the valve to flex for more fatigue strength
Proper forging process prevents laps or inclusions for better fatigue strength
Systems functions, such as ride control, anti-drift, and pilot supply can be incorporated into the valve allowing you to reduce hydraulic lines in the system. Integration reduces the need for add-on valves while improving response.
With a reputation for building rugged and reliable equipment, Caterpillar has the production facilities, technical capabilities, testing and quality processes necessary to produce valves to meet your application requirements. And Gough has the branch network and parts availability to ensure you can access them when you need it most.
