A brake valve is a type of valve that is used to control the flow of fluid in a hydraulic brake system. It is typically found in vehicles that use hydraulic brakes, such as cars, trucks, and buses. The brake valve is used to apply pressure to the brake pads or shoes, which causes them to press against the rotors or drums and slow or stop the vehicle. There are several different types of brake valves, including master cylinder valves, proportioning valves, and metering valves. Each type serves a specific function in the brake system and helps to ensure that the brakes work properly and safely.
