Innovative Products

Sun Hydraulics AssemblySince the beginning, our products have been setting the standard for the screw-in hydraulic cartridge valve industry. Sun's floating cartridge construction and cavity design approach allows products to operate precisely and reliably at higher pressures and flow rates in the most demanding applications. The generous porting area, coupled with our manifold design and construction techniques, result in integrated packages that can be up to 50% smaller than competitive offerings.   Back to top

Complete Product Line

Complete Product LineSun products are offered in five primary sizes, with flow capacity and controlled horsepower doubling with each successive size. Within each broad functional area (pressure, flow, load control, etc.), multiple variations are available to help you optimize your control circuit. Our expansive product line allows you to develop the best control solution for your hydraulic application.   Back to top
