Protective covers for hydraulic hoses are still used to protect hoses on mobile construction and mining equipment. However, with the need for higher-pressure systems and more compact machine designs, there is an increasing need for ways to safely protect machine operators and personnel from catastrophic hydraulic hose failure.
TIM Series of non-contact linear position sensors is designed for integration in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders.
High-pressure piston accumulators for the oil and gas market have working pressure ratings up to 30,000 psi and capacities of 160+ gal.
The Check Valve Assembly is ideal for full power hydraulic brake systems that must store energy in two separate accumulator circuits. It features high flow capacity up to 11 gpm and a maximum operating pressure of 3,625 psi.
The BLA Boost Unit simplifies the building of closed or semi-closed hydrostatic transmissions by replacing the conventional charge pump and corresponding valves in many applications.
Designing a hydraulic control system involves several design considerations and tradeoffs. Key among them are selecting the proper system components and setting up the motion controller with the proper control algorithm.
HydraForce has collaborated with Famic Technologies Inc. to incorporate their valve library into Famic’s Automation Studio software.
