Valves play a pivotal role in the oil circuit. They are responsible for the high-precision management of large and small volume flows in the context of engine lubrication, piston cooling, and variable oil pump control. Thomas valves lead the international field when it comes to precision oil supply in vehicles – thanks to the development of a proportional valve with a plastic valve sleeve and the smart integration of diagnostic sensor technology.

Building on a proven modular design, Thomas offers customized solutions centered around highly integrated valves and systems, e.g., with regard to the hydraulic functions of a 2/2-way valve through to a 4/3-way valve with integrated fail-safe control.
