HydraForce MP08-20 Manual Cartridge Valve, Normally Closed, 2-Way


The HydraForce MP08-20 is a 2-way, manual pull to shift, spring return, screw-in, cartridge style directional hydraulic valve.

In the neutral position the MP08-20X valve blocks flow from port 2 to 1 until it is manually actuated (pulled). When released the valve returns to its neutral position. The bias spring allows up to 180 psi [12,4 bar] back pressure at port 1 before the valve will open. Note that pressure at port 1 will directly act on the spring; port 1 is intended to be a tank port only.


  • Hardened seat for long life and low leakage.
  • Remains closed to 12.4 bar (180 psi) back-pressure.
  • Compact, industry-common cavity.

Pressure ratings:

  • Port 1: 12.4 bar (180 psi)
  • Port 2: 207 bar (3000 psi)

The MP08-20 manual cartridge valve can be used with mineral based or synthetic hydraulic fluid with lubricating properties.
