A hydraulic manifold, sometimes called a hydraulic valve block, is a machine component which regulates the fluid flow between the actuators, pumps and other components within a hydraulic system. In terms of functionality, it is similar to a switchboard of an electric circuit as it allows the operator to control the movements of fluid between different parts of a hydraulic machinery. For instance, in a machine such as a backhoe loader, the manifold turns on, turns off and diverts the flow of the fluid towards the telescopic arms of the both the front and backbuckets. In this case, the hydraulic manifold is attached to the levers present in the operator’s cabin of the machine, and the operator uses it to get the desired movements.
