Hydraulic systems are known for adjustable, controllable power transmission to a variety of actuators. But they require careful design attention to keep noise to acceptable levels. Fortunately, new pump technologies are making this task easier.
Whether your application is mobile construction, truck, agricultural equipment, or marine work, it needs a pump to supply flow and meet application work requirements.
Three types of systems are commonly used in mobile applications: constant-flow (CF), constant-pressure (CP), and load-sensing (LS) systems.
Hydro-pneumatic piston accumulators with a 25-in. inside diameter bore are rated for working pressures in excess of 10,000 psi.
The Universal Push-to-Connect (UPTC) assembly provides fast and efficient, leak-free connections for compact fluid power systems in industrial, mobile, and construction equipment.
Hydropneumatic accumulators are widely used in hydraulic systems, holding stored power for peak demand. Now, they can be supplemented with gas bottles to reduce the cost and size of your hydraulic system.
Designing a mobile system once was simple: start with a gear pump, add manual valves and the necessary actuators, and finish off with an appropriate reservoir, filter, and cooler. But new developments for this key application have brought forth equipment with capabilities that are changing the old design truisms.
The latest generation of hydraulic tie rod cylinders from Parker Hannifin incorporate a number of innovative features designed to minimize machine assembly and maintenance times, resulting in considerably increased productivity levels.
Hoses are designed to have a finite life. They must be inspected periodically and replaced when deterioration is noticed. Improperly specifying a hose will shorten its life.
Here are a few key developments that make hydraulic systems more “green,” more efficient, and that tap efficiency to create energy-saving alternatives to conventional equipment.
