HAWE Hydraulics is a leading global manufacturer and supplier of sophisticated hydraulic components and controls for the mobile, industrial, and renewable energy markets.

“The PSL/PSV valve series is just one of the many components HAWE Hydraulics displayed at the ConExpo/IFPE Tradeshow in Las Vegas, NV.

HAWE offers a proportional directional spool valve type, PSL/PSV that can be configured to easily satisfy all the necessary hydraulic functions of a silage trailer. These functions include, but are not limited to, raising/lowering the tailgate or front gate, and operating the scraper floor drive and conveyor drive systems.

Unique modular designs allow this valve series to be configured for tractors with fixed or variable displacement pumps and permits easy adjustments via manual, remote hydraulic pilot or electrical control. Their compact design allows them to be deployed in applications where space is at a premium and consolidation is necessary. The PSL/PSV’s flange mounted design simplifies plumbing/hose runs and uses a twin solenoid configuration, unique to HAWE, that reduces wiring and allows for both proportional and on/off operation.

These “load-sensing” valves are designed to keep the input pressure constant without being effected by the individual work units. This permits independent pressure control between the work sections/functions of the valves. Independent pressure control allows for greater efficiency since the only power consumed is that which is required to do the physical work of each separate function, thus saving fuel and enabling precise motion control for the consumer.

Operating pressures of up to 420 bar and maximum flows up to 200 lpm make the PSL/PSV a practical solution for agricultural machines which normally operate at pressures around 200 bar.”

Hydraulic Weight Balancing Saves Electricity

CHARLOTTE, N.C.– November 4, 2013– HAWE Hydraulics, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of sophisticated hydraulic components and controls for the mobile, industrial, and renewable energy markets.

For large machining centers, balancing the weight of spindle heads and work piece tables pays off. HAWE Hydraulics develops unique solutions that are both energy efficient and durable. These solutions reduce energy consumption while lowering the total costs of ownership for these types of machines. When combined with Hawe Hydraulics’ counterbalance valves even greater electrical power savings can be achieved.

Hydraulic weight balancing is an automatic process. Once the system is pressurized it no longer requires additional energy input. The hydraulic cylinder is connected to the accumulator which takes up the weight of the spindle head and/or work piece table. The pressure is set so the cylinder balances the weight and only the friction force and inertia mass must be overcome to move the spindle head along its axis. This balancing of the spindle head and/or work piece table requires significantly less power to drive, thus lower power consumption.

HAWE Hydraulics provides a broad line of potential solutions to accomplish this; more commonly used is the compact MPN power pack. The MPN Power unit provides high operating pressures for filling/emptying the system and therefore, permits a larger tank volume. This can all be accomplished while maintaining a compact footprint. The MPN power pack can be configured with a variety of valving combinations and is deliverable as a complete system to meet all your hydraulic weight balancing applications.

MICO, Incorporated introduces a trailer brake Load-Apportioning-Valve (LAV)

MICO, Incorporated introduces a trailer brake Load-Apportioning-Valve (LAV) for use with MICO MOBEUS EH brake systems on Agriculture and other Off-Highway vehicles and trailers. The new LAV proportions trailer brake pressure utilizing a tow vehicle’s hydraulic brake signal in conjunction with real-time trailer load sensing to continuously control pressure-reduction braking to the trailer brakes without utilization of tank-pressure. The result is load sensitive trailer braking that reduces the occurrence of trailer wheel lock-up or skidding.
Trailer load is sensed by the load apportioning valve and the output pressure from the valve modifies output trailer brake pressure in accordance with the current weight of the trailer load. As trailer-load is increased or decreased, the trailer brake pressure is changed proportionally. Lighter loads induce lower trailer brake pressures whereas higher loads result in higher trailer brake pressures.
MICO MOBEUS LAV provides several benefits for the end user, including:
- Significant reduction in trailer wheel lock-up and skidding
- Compatible with MICO MOBEUS ABS systems and associated circuitry, as well as other MICO braking components and systems.
- Meets EU trailer safety requirements
- Fits with a variety of mounting configurations
- Vehicle brake pressure is used directly as the input to the LAV
- Wide temperature operating range of -40 ºC to +80 ºC
- Cost-effective system with simple installation and no tank port necessary
MICO MOBEUS EH systems are designed to provide state-of-the-art vehicular braking control of Off-Highway and Agricultural vehicles and trailers.

Revolutionary sealing material Turcon® turns 50 Trelleborg Sealing Solutions launches celebration to commemorate anniversary

>From airplanes to spacecraft, prosthetics to wind turbines and almost everything inbetween, Turcon® is the go-to seal material for a broad range of applications. This revolutionary material is a part of—and has made possible—some of the most innovative engineering advancements in the last half-century. Now, on the eve of the PTFE material’s 50th anniversary, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions is commemorating the material’s impact on the world.

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions has brought together customers such as Boeing and Eaton; former executives from Busak+Shamban and Trelleborg; and engineers, researchers, manufacturers and others who have been involved with Turcon® over the years for a multimedia retrospective.

The project unfolds in stages. A website with photos, videos and first-person contributions from a variety of people in the industry debuts in May. The project also includes a commissioned, hand-painted mural showing Turcon®’s impact over the decades. Once a month, from May 2012 to January 2013, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions will reveal the next panel in the mural, along with relevant photos, videos and other media.

“The brand started with W.S. Shamban in 1962 and if you look at all the engineers who are in the market today, they don’t recognize the Trelleborg name with the Turcon® brand,” says Nancy Getz, Product Manager of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Fort Wayne. “That’s what makes this anniversary so important.”

Turcon® has a long history tied tightly to the Fort Wayne community; it was developed by Bill Shamban, founder of W.S. Shamban Co., which moved to Fort Wayne in 1956. Turcon® was produced in Fort Wayne facilities under the W.S. Shamban Co. and Busak+Shamban names, and now by Trelleborg Sealing Solutions. The name has changed, but the quality standard and respect for its history remain the same.

Turcon® is a proprietary polytetrafluoroethylene-based (PTFE) sealing material introduced by Bill Shamban and Hank Traub in 1960. It is a wear-resistant seal material with unique properties unmatched in the industry. Turcon® seals are used in a variety of applications and serve numerous fields.

“When I joined in ’86 the premier material we had to work with in terms of engineering applications was the Turcon® material,” says Tim Callison, President of Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Marketing Americas and a company employee since 1986. “Twenty-six years later, the premium material we have for applications today is Turcon®. It is a fantastic material with great breadth in its ability to provide solutions for our customers. It’s still regarded as the premier PTFE compounded material. It is still solving problems for us today, just as it did 26 years ago.”

Currently, Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Great Lakes is based in Fort Wayne. The manufacturing facility is in the same location as the very first W.S. Shamban & Co. plant. The manufacturing plant is accompanied by the Hank A. Traub Technical Center, built in 1997, which serves as Trelleborg Sealing Solutions Americas headquarters and includes research and development labs. In 2010, Trelleborg opened its new Supply Chain Management Americas facility in Fort Wayne.

Trelleborg Sealing Solutions plans to display an exhibit focusing on Turcon®’s history at the Allen County-Fort Wayne Historical Society later this year, as well as sponsor a speaker in January for the society’s free-speaker series.

COMATROL INTRODUCES PFD10-OD PROPORTIONAL FLOW DIVIDER

A new way to proportionally distribute flow between two hydraulic circuits

Comatrol - a global leader in the design, manufacture and sale of engineered hydraulic cartridge valves and HICs - introduces the PFD10-OD Proportional Flow Divider for compensated flow sharing between two motors or hydraulic circuits. This circuit-saver solution takes the input flow and delivers precise flow management, providing engineers with a new tool for distributing flow on their applications.

The PFD10-OD is an electro-proportional, compensated, normally open, flow dividing, pre-engineered HIC. When there is no current applied to the coils, the inlet flow is divided equally between the work ports A and B, with flows up to 40 LPM (10.7 GPM). The flow ratio between the 2 ports will proportionally vary as current is provided to the coils (from 0 to 40 LPM out each work port). The valve’s internal pressure compensation of both work ports provide the precise, repeatable and load-independent flow control to both work ports / circuits.


Emanuele Vezzani, Comatrol Account Manager (Italy), shares, “We originally created this product for a unique customer application, building off our existing products and circuit expertise, and in the end came up with a design that we feel can find many homes with our customers. As we’ve shared this new compensated flow divider concept with customers, applications quickly come to mind where they could apply this pre-engineered solution.”

When thinking of where to apply, think of dual circuits or motors that continuously require flow, and need to proportionally manage the amount of flow between them. Additionally, the built-in pressure compensator provides repeatable flow sharing performance, regardless of the loads on the circuits or motors.

The PFD10-OD is a pre-engineered HIC that can be ordered using its nomenclature to specify options needed for the application, like coil voltage and termination, port sizes and seals. The aluminum manifold design is optimized for a small space claim on the vehicle, with 2 mounting holes provided as standard.

The coils are designed for incorporation on machine control architecture that utilizes Sauer-Danfoss PLUS+1™ hardware. Adding PFD10-OD to your application using PLUS+1 GUIDE software is as easy as drag-and-drop.

MICROMATIC RELEASES NEW CUSTOM SERIES 10,000 RPM ROTATING ACTUATOR

Until now, our actuators have been limited to 5000 rpm in our standard line of rotating actuators. But with advancements in technology we are now providing units for applications of 10,000 rpm and beyond.

What is a rotating actuator? Its interior design and construction are similar to standard lines of stationary actuators, but the rotating actuator, unlike the stationary models, revolves in application. Also, its applications are entirely different. It consists of an aluminum alloy body with a precision machined cylindrical chamber, a central splined end shaft on which vanes are fixed. Power is derived from either hydraulic or pneumatic pressure directed against the vanes which, in turn, rotate the splined shaft. This type of actuator maybe referred to as a “Spinner.” The entire actuator rotates or spins with the drive mechanism being tested.

The drive mechanism might be the transmission of a military helicopter. Some helicopters have two GE T700 turbo shaft engines each producing up to 2000 hp, each engine is joined together through a sophisticated drive mechanism that powers the two rotors allowing agile maneuvering. It is this sophisticated drive mechanism that needs testing. That’s where our Micromatic rotating actuator is used. There are several test stands that take the drive mechanism through its paces. Each test stand has a rotating actuator installed that imparts a calculated amount of additional torque or load on the system. This ensures that the drive mechanism is ready to be used in production.

Simrit’s Nanotechnology Surface Process Improves Seal Longevity, Abrasion Resistance

To better meet customer needs for more robust seals, Simrit has developed an advanced surface treatment process to improve seal function and service life. Simrit’s Reduced Friction by Nanotechnology (RFN) method is one of the newest tools available for enhancing seal performance.
Sealing components made of elastomeric materials have inherently high surface energies (tackiness) and a high coefficient of friction (COF). Therefore, when an elastomeric seal makes contact with the mating component, the interface of the two surfaces can produce a “stiction” effect, which is detrimental when the contact is intermittent. For example, stiction has a significant impact on applications like bicycle shock absorbers, which need to have a low breakaway force for smooth shock function.

To prevent stiction, Simrit created the RFN process, which consists of applying its proprietary surface modification to rubber components to reduce COF. The transformed surface offers high abrasion resistance, low COF, resistance to aggressive fluids and improved long-term service. The RFN treatment is odorless, translucent in color and compatible with applications that require purity. Applications that require low stiction and long service life, such as valve sealing components and diaphragms, can greatly benefit from Simrit’s RFN treatment.
“With nearly 100 years of sealing experience, developing technologies and processes that provide increased consistency and reliability for our customers is a top priority for Simrit,” said David R. Monaco, president, Simrit. “Our pioneering RFN surface treatment has the ability to dramatically improve the longevity and function of elastomeric seals in a variety of applications, including designs that operate in extreme conditions.”

RFN treated surfaces have consistently shown a 70 percent reduction in static COF, aggressive media resistance and lower torque and loading properties. Additionally, long-term exposure to fuel, ozone and wear have shown no increase in COF in treated surfaces, while non-treated surfaces exhibit an 80 to 100 percent increase in COF over time. Further, the RFN process doesn’t alter the physical properties of the elastomer and enables the seal to remain flexible to withstand extremely low temperatures, as well as high forces, without cracking.

Simrit is part of the Freudenberg and NOK Group Companies, which have total annual sales of more than $7 billion. The global Freudenberg and NOK Group offers an extensive portfolio of precision-manufactured products for the aerospace, appliance, automotive, marine, medical, off-highway equipment, recreational vehicle and renewable energy markets.

Simrit Revolutionizes Surface Finish Testing Methodology to Increase Seal Performance

Newly identified parameters more accurately assess rod surface finish of tribological systems


To improve and minimize variation of rod counter surface quality for hydraulic applications, Simrit has specified six additional parameters. Expanding on the three parameters that are traditionally used to measure surface finish and define sealing technology requirements, these new attributes allow engineers to more accurately predict, and therefore anticipate, seal behavior without additional measurements or time.

“The precise evaluation of an application’s surface finish is critical to the overall effectiveness of the entire sealing system,” said Joel Johnson, vice president of technology, Simrit. “Based on the Abbott Firestone Curve and ISO methodology, our new factors modernize the standards for counter surface examination, which helps extend the life and increase the performance of sealing systems.”

Simrit determined that, while important, the traditional three testing parameters – Ra, Rmax and Rz – were not adequate to accurately classify surface abrasiveness and a component’s potential to hold lubricant. To address current and future industry trends and expectations, Simrit developed an improved methodology that better identifies surface characteristics over a defined length and complete depth of the profile.

Initial in-house testing by Simrit indicates that the new parameters, through the more accurate evaluation of surface characteristics, are able to reduce part wear and extend system life. Additionally, Simrit’s newly identified methodology can be applied to numerous markets and
dynamic applications.

Eaton Announces Breakthrough in Hydraulic Hose Technology - The Hose That Knows

LifeSense™ Hose Launched at IFPE/ConExpo


EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation today announced the launch of a new breakthrough technology that enables reporting of imminent hose assembly failure by means of real-time monitoring of high pressure hose assemblies used in hydraulic
systems. Eaton’s LifeSense™ hose, a patented hydraulic hose condition monitoring system, will be introduced to the North American market at the International Fluid Power Exposition (held in conjunction with Conexpo 2011) in Las Vegas, March 22 - 26, and to the European market at
Hannover Messe 2011 in Hannover, Germany, April 4 - 8.

Eaton’s LifeSense hose was developed in conjunction with Purdue University and the Purdue Research Foundation's Office of Technology Commercialization to continuously monitor the health of hydraulic hose assemblies and alert users when an assembly approaches the end of its
useful life. The LifeSense hose can monitor and track the health of each hose assembly in a hydraulic system. This system does not estimate or predict through arithmetic calculations when a hose is going to fail, like some products on the market today. The LifeSense hose actually
detects when a hose is nearing the end of its useful life. Then an alert is sent to the user so that the assembly can be replaced to prevent downtime. A single monitoring unit can handle input from multiple hose assemblies.

“Most hydraulic maintenance programs are designed to avoid hose failures by replacing assemblies at regular intervals, using a schedule based on usage data or past experience,” said Doug Jahnke, Eaton product marketing manager. “As a result, a large number of perfectly good
hydraulic hose assemblies are discarded long before the end of their useful life out of fear that they might fail. The LifeSense hose allows the user to utilize virtually all of the useful life of a hydraulic hose assembly, more than 50 percent longer life in a typical lab test, thus saving on replacement costs and associated downtime while providing peace-of-mind that productivity will not be impeded and safety not compromised by unpredicted hose failure.“Additionally, hydraulic hose failure is one of the largest causes of unplanned maintenance events,” Jahnke said. “Hose failures in the field present serious safety issues, environmental concerns and result in unscheduled system downtime, all of which have serious economic
impacts.

The initial LifeSense hose offering will include the widely-used -8, -12 and -16 two-wire hose assemblies. Eaton’s LifeSense hydraulic hose condition monitoring offers performance equal to industry standard 2SN pressure-rated hose and is certified to the same industry specifications as conventional hydraulic hose products. The technology is currently available for trial with factory-made assemblies including straight JIC swivel fittings.

Eaton’s Hydraulics Group is a segment of the company’s Industrial Sector. The business is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of a comprehensive line of reliable, high-efficiency hydraulic systems and components for use in mobile and stationary
applications.

Parker Announces New PV360 Axial Piston Pump; Smartly Designed, Quiet, Modular and Easy-to-Service Pump Aims to Increase the Productivity of
Heavy-Duty Machines


Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has introduced a new addition
to the PVplus axial piston pump family, the PV360. A variable displacement, 360 cc/rev pump, the PV360 addresses a wide range of heavy-duty mobile and industrial applications with operating pressures up to 5,000 psi (350 bar).

Featuring a large servo piston for exceptionally fast response, the PV360 is best suited for cranes and lifting equipment, presses, metal forming machines, hydraulic power units (HPUs) and marine use. In these applications, where the hydraulic system may already be subject to
high impact forces, the PV360 – thanks to Parker’s patented ripple chamber technology – produces between 40 and 60 percent less pressure and flow pulsation than comparable pumps. This means that fewer sine waves – capable of loosening hydraulic connections and damaging downstream
components – are introduced into the system as added burden; pump noise is also subdued.

A second key advantage of the PV360 is its modular design. A wide variety of compensator options are offered including standard pressure, remote pressure, load sensing and horsepower. Pilot valves can also be directly mounted without any piping. This permits simple and straightforward in-field conversion, when necessary.

The ease of service afforded by the PV360 is furthermore of great benefit. Metric and SAE mounting interfaces are available and threads/ports can be ordered metric or UNC/UNF, meaning connectors and mounting bolts – even for body and compensator – are available according to local standards around the world. For installation and maintenance, no special tools are needed to alter the pump's configuration, meaning part supply – and once again, field service – present little issue.

Finally, all Parker PVplus pumps are 100 percent through-drive capable and are equipped with an easily accessible displacement adjustment screw. In double configurations, both pumps can be used at full flow and nominal pressure at the same time. Therefore, multiple pump systems
can be built with only one drive motor and the maximum displacement of any PVplus pump – also in pump combinations – can be adjusted or modified at any time.

In addition to the new PV360, Parker’s PVplus pump series includes 16, 20, 23, 28, 32, 40, 46, 63, 80, 92, 140, 180 and 270cc displacement models. To learn more, visit www.PHpump.com, email pumptechsupport@parker.com or call the Hydraulic Pump Division at 937.644.3915.

Flo-tech PFM testers now offer internal pressure relief discs

February 1, 2011 - The rugged PFM Tester Series by Flo-tech now features an internal safety pressure relief disc, or “burst disc”. The PFM series has long been relied upon to measure flow, pressure, temperature and horsepower on mobile hydraulic equipment. Effective immediately, all PFM Testers will include an internal burst disc component. The new design ensures that in the event of an over pressurization, that the fluid is safely allowed to bypass the load valve and remain within the hydraulic system. No fluids will escape outside of the tester. Maintenance costs are thereby reduced, and potential harm to the environment from spills is eliminated with the internal design. As before, the internal burst disc is field-replaceable, should an over pressurization occur.

The PFM Tester utilizes a turbine rotor and a magnetic pick-up to measure flow rates by measuring the frequency pulse output from the rotor. Volumetric flow rate is displayed on an LCD or sent via digital output to a PC. The PFM Series provides reliable readings with an accuracy of 1% of full scale and a repeatability of 0.2%. Temperature is measured via internal sensor, and pressure is measured via analog gauge or high-sensitivity digital sensor. For ease of use and safety, all testers have loading valves with fingertip control and pressure surge protection.

MICO Hydraulic-Over-Air Relay Valves

Convert Hydraulic Input To Air Pressure Output

NORTH MANKATO, Minn. — MICO, Incorporated is introducing its hydraulic-over-air relay valves at the IFPE/ConExpo show in Las Vegas in booth #13653. The valves are designed to
convert hydraulic modulated input pressure to a proportional output air pressure. The new relay valves are ideal for various on- and off-highway applications, such as
controlling an air-braked trailer with a hydraulically braked towing vehicle that has an air power source.

The system originates with a hydraulic vehicle component, such as a master cylinder or hydraulic control valve, which delivers a given hydraulic input pressure. This input
pressure sends a pilot signal to the relay valve in order to modulate air brake pressure on the other end.

MICO offers three different hydraulic-over-air relay valve designs: single, dual and tandem. The single input design provides one hydraulic pilot port to control modulated air
braking pressure. The dual input features two independent ports, either of which can accept pilot pressure. When pressure is applied to both ports simultaneously, the controlled
air braking pressure ratio increases proportionally. The dual input ports can be set up for different pressure ratios, making the dual design a good fit for certain steering
assist applications. Functionally similar to the single design, the tandem input provides redundancy by utilizing two independent pilot pressure ports. This enables hydraulic
pilot pressure to be applied to either port while allowing the pressure ratio to remain the same.

The new relay valves can accommodate a maximum air pressure of 150 PSI and maximum hydraulic pressure of 2,000 PSI. The valves can be adjusted to operate at anywhere from a 3:1
to 21:1 hydraulic-to-air-pressure ratio. Maximum operating temperature for the valves is 250 degrees Fahrenheit.

MICO, Incorporated designs, manufactures and markets brake systems, hydraulic components and controls, primarily for off-road markets. For more information, contact MICO,

COMPACT, MOBILE HYDROSWAGE HEAT EXCHANGER TUBE EXPANSION SYSTEM
WITH GREATER EASE OF USE AND ENHANCED DATA COLLECTION


New Mark V HydroSwage from Haskel International supports rapid, accurate fabrication of heat exchangers for power generation, chemical processing, other applications
An updated HydroSwage® Tube Expansion System featuring new ease of use and data collection features has been introduced by Haskel International. The compact Mark V system provides high accuracy, speed and
repeatability by expanding heat exchanger tubes into tube sheets through the direct application of high internal
hydraulic pressure.

It is designed for use in fabricating heat exchangers for steam generation, condensation and evaporation. Applications include power generation, metalworking, air conditioning, chemical processing and paper mills. The New Mark V includes touch-screen electronic controls for set up of all process functions. Expansion history is stored and can be downloaded to an Excel spreadsheet through a USB port.
Heavy duty casters make it easy to roll the system up to the tube sheet face to perform expansion. The intensifier is mounted into a convenient drawer that slides out of the power unit. An optional  (20 ft) long umbilical cordallows the intensifier to be used at a distance from the power unit (on a scaffold to access a very large sheet, for example).

Designed to provide one-step high pressure expansion regardless of the tube sheet thickness, HydroSwage® expanding mandrels feature a patented segmented seal support system that holds high pressures with minimalseal extrusion.

Capable of expansion pressures to 50,000 PSI, the system accepts 100 to 240 VAC single-phase and requires airinlet pressure between 70 and 150 psi with a minimum of 70 scfm. Expansion pressures are applied uniformly, tube after tube, yielding consistent joints throughout the tube sheet. The method has been applied successfully to expand tubes into tube sheets as thin as 19 mm (¾”) up to as thick as 84 cm (33”).

Haskel International Inc. is a world leader in high pressure technology with 40 years experience in hydraulic tube expansion. The company is part of United Technologies’ Hamilton Sundstrand Corporation.

 

RAISING THE BAR ON CLEANLINESS

Ultra Clean is the leader in contamination control with its unmatched hose and tube cleaning systems. With the introduction of the Clean Seal System, we once again raise the bar on cleanliness.

How to use Clean Seal Capsules
The Clean Seal process utilizes heat shrink technology to encapsulate the end of a hose or tube assembly with a Clean Seal Capsule. This eliminates possible re-contamination that is problematic with traditional capping and plugging methods. Re-contamination occurs when ill-fitting caps and plugs are forced onto assemblies, causing plastic particles to shear off into the hose or tube. Clean Seal Capsules leave your assemblies 100% contamination free - and that's not just clean, it's Ultra Clean.

LIGHTNING HYBRIDS INTRODUCES LIGHTWEIGHT HYDRAULIC ACCUMULATORS

Colorado company produces tanks that are one-third the weight of standard tanks

Loveland, Colorado — Lightning Hybrids Inc. (LHI) today introduced their lightweight high pressure composite bladder accumulators for hydraulic and other energy storage applications.

Prices for LHI’s compositetanks are comparable to prices on similarly-priced steel accumulators and are one- third the weight of standard steel accumulators and offer significant energy savings due to weight reduction, increased safety due to a higher than standard burst pressure factor, and cost savings because they are easier and less expensive to ship and install since weight and mounting hardware is minimized.

The patent-pending tanks were engineered by Lightning Hybrids specifically for use in the company’s HyPER Assist™ hydraulic hybrid vehicle application. Though it quickly became evident that there are other uses for these lightweight energy storage tanks such as emergency vehicles, forestry, agricultural and mining mobile equipment, among others.

“Our lightweight accumulators enhance the performance and efficiency of a variety of hydraulic systems,” stated Dan Johnson, LHI’s CEO, “in addition they add a higher dimension of safety and reliability over standard steel accumulators for the same price.”

Structural Composites Industries, a subsidiary of Worthington Cylinders, manufactures the accumulators for Lightning Hybrids. SCI is a world-recognized leader in high pressure tank manufacturing with an impeccable safety record and has managed the certifications required for these high-pressure tanks.

Lightning Hybrids’ accumulators are 6,000 PSI bladder accumulators and range in size from 10 to 30 gallons. They are a Type 3 tank and consist of an aluminum lining and a spun carbon fiber wrapped shell, encompassing a nitrogen gas compression bladder. LHI’s carbon fiber wrapped vessels are considerably lighter than their steel counterparts. For example, a 15 gallon accumulator weighs 115 pounds compared to 465 pounds for a steel accumulator. LHI’s accumulators are made and assembled in the U.S.A. Orders are currently being taken with delivery 60 days from receipt of order. For more information please call 1-800-223-0740 ext. 102

 

Sunnen's new SHO-500 honing oil added to USDA BioPreferredSM online catalog


St. Louis, MO (November 2010) – The U.S. Department of Agriculture's (USDA) BioPreferred program, a Federal purchasing program for biobased products, has recently added Sunnen's new SHO-500 vegetable-based honing oil to its online product catalog – a searchable, user-friendly database used to find biobased products that meet BioPreferred program requirements.

Offering a breakthrough in oxidation stability, SHO-500 is formulated without additives that many find objectionable, such as sulfur, chlorine and fluorine. It is an ideal solution in honing applications where additives cannot be used, such as nuclear and some aerospace parts, or where company policies discourage use of fluids with such additives. SHO-500 is acceptable in all parts of the world and to all religions and cultures. It is suitable for use with conventional vitrified honing abrasives and metal-bond superabrasives. SHO-500 joins Sunnen's two other planet friendly oils, MAN-863 and KG3X, as BioPreferred™ products. The new oil is available in 5-gallon (18.9 l) pails, 55-gallon (208.2 l) drums and 330-gallon (1,249 l) totes.

"We're pleased to qualify the SHO-500 vegetable-based honing oil for addition to the BioPreferred list," said Chuck Korn, product engineer at Sunnen. "These oils help reduce manufacturing's impact on the environment, and we're confident that customers willing to make the switch to a 'green' fluid will find its performance to be comparable to their conventional honing oils."

BioPreferred is a Federal program that seeks to increase the purchase and use of biobased goods – products made from biological or renewable materials.

"Initially, the catalog was created to help Federal procurement officers identify biobased products that qualify for preferred purchasing," said Ron Buckhalt, BioPreferred's program manager. "But the BioPreferred online catalog is accessible to anyone who wants to search for biobased products. We are gratified so many find the catalog a useful tool."

Biopreferred's online product catalog is searchable by product category (i.e. construction and road
maintenance, housewares and cleaning products, etc.) and further by subcategory, manufacturer name or product name. Today, more than 1480 biobased products manufactured by more than 320 companies are in the online catalog, with new products continually being added. SHO-500 honing oil is listed in the catalog's Metalworking Fluids category under the Straight Oils subcategory.

MICO Introduces Check Valve Assembly For Full-Power Brake Systems

NORTH MANKATO, Minn. — MICO, Incorporated introduces a Check Valve Assembly for Full Power Brake Systems. It is a compact manifold assembly that includes a check valve and an inverted shuttle valve. The assembly supplies fluid for two separate accumulator circuits while reducing the necessary number of system components and limiting plumbing and hardware requirements.

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 gallons per minute and a maximum operating pressure of 3,625 PSI, Among the potential applications are split systems with a pressure-compensated pump, and electrohydraulic accumulator charging controlled by a pressure transducer at the unit’s switch port.

Pressure is supplied to two accumulators by the assembly’s inlet port. The inverted shuttle valve isolates the higher pressure of the two accumulator circuits, while directing the lower pressure to the switch port. A check valve prevents pressure at the switch port from leaking back to the inlet port.

By combining the functionality of multiple components into a single housing, the Check Valve Assembly decreases costs and time required for installation. Its design also reduces potential leak points and contains possible failure points for the hydraulic system. The assembly limits check valve leakage to a maximum of 0.25 cubic centimeters per minute at 3,500 PSI.

MICO Introduces Hydraulic Apply Caliper Disc Brake

NORTH MANKATO, Minn. — MICO, Incorporated introduces the new 520 Series hydraulic apply caliper disc brake for on and off-highway service braking applications. The new fixed caliper type brake uses a modulated hydraulic pressure source, such as a master cylinder, to control brake torque. It can be mounted in a vertical or horizontal position and linings can be replaced without removing the brake.

The brake includes two ductile iron caliper halves that are pressurized by a single inlet port cross-over tube feature, which allows hydraulic pressure to actuate the 2.25-inch diameter piston in each half. The unit provides for continuous duty pressure of 1,000 PSI and intermittent duty pressure of 1,500 PSI. Weighing approximately 17 pounds, the brake requires a minimum disc diameter of 15 inches.

To reduce unnecessary lining wear, the caliper disc brake features a spring-operated lining retractor mechanism that maintains a constant lining-to-rotor disc clearance distance whenever the brake is not applied. The total lining contact area is 12.4 square inches, with a usable lining thickness of 0.32 inches on each side. Linings can be replaced without disassembling or removing the brake, allowing for reduced maintenance time and costs.

Installation of the caliper disc brake is made simple due to the brake’s flexibility to be mounted in either a horizontal or vertical position. The unit can be attached directly to a threaded hanger or clamp.

SGM2 and SGM3 Fan Drive Motors Now Offer Bidirectional, Fan Reversing, and Outrigger Bearings

Sauer-Danfoss introduces new options for radiator cleaning and slewing applications.

Sauer-Danfoss’ SGM2 and SGM3
aluminum fan drive gear motors now offer three new features: integrated reversing and proportional valves; a bi-directional motor for remote HIC reversing valves with shaft seal protector and cast iron cover; and outrigger bearing for slewing, high vibration, and oscillating fan drive applications. These new features help OEMs achieve Tier IV and Stage 3B emissions compliance.

In addition to these features, the SGM3 also offers 250 bar [3600 psi] pressure capability across all displacements.

The SGM motors were introduced in April 2009 and now have been enhanced for high performance fan drive systems. “These fan drive motors are robust in dusty, dirty environments,” says Rob Arndt, Product Sales Support Manager for Sauer-Danfoss. “With Tier IV and Stage 3B Emissions regulations, we’ll have applications with higher horsepower fans, more aggressive duty cycles, and higher temperatures. Because new vehicle systems will reject more heat, the fans operate longer and more often for cooling.”

Now, with the new features, SGM motors run both directions to quickly clean radiators of dirt and
chaff, offering a compact system solution for high-performance Tier IV and Stage 3B fan drive
systems. Arndt says, “The base models already helped recapture some of the lost power from the
constraints imposed by emissions standards. These enhancements help recover additional power.”

The enhancements to the best-in-class SGM motors continue to focus on key product attributes:
increased performance, extended life or durability, and installation flexibility.

Increased Performance
On both the SGM2 and SGM3, two anti-cavitation shock valves are standard, with open transitional
directional control valve spools, protecting the motors during high performance fan reversals.

Unlike other motors on the market, the SGM2 and SGM3 are not pressure de-rated due to poor valve
performance. In addition, they’re the only fan drive motors with two valves, helping to clip
pressure spikes in both directions of fan rotation. These two features allow the OEM more power
utilization, due higher pressure capabilities.

The SGM2 features the D03 valve, a two-position directional valve that controls fan rotation. The
SGM3 features the D05. High-temperature seals allow operation from -20 C to 110 C. With its 250 bar
pressure capability, the SGM3 can be applied on higher horsepower fans with increased cooling
demands.

Greater Efficiency
The enhanced SGM fan drive motors trim fan speeds during optimal conditions, and they provide
efficient reverse radiator cleaning. This reduces fuel consumption and operating costs due to
excessive fan speeds and plugged radiators.

Extended Life/Durability
The SGM2 and SGM3 are the only aluminum fan drive motors on the market with a steel rear cover to
handle higher pressure and durability requirements, with equally matched valves.

In addition, outrigger bearings provide increased capability for heavy metal fan blades and for
machines that swing with high gyroscopic loads. Outrigger bearings mean the fan drive motors can be
used with higher horsepower fans, shock loads, radial and axial loads, slewing and oscillating
applications. A dust protector comes standard with the outrigger bearing for extended life.

New outrigger bearings are available for all existing SGM2 and SGM3 fan drive motors from Sauer-
Danfoss. The motors come standard with 12- or 24V Deutsch connectors to handle dusty, dirty
operating conditions.

Installation Flexibility
The SGM2 and SGM3 fan drive motors come assembled as one piece, including the factory sealed

New Aluminum Tube Fittings from Parker are 65% Lighter; Weight Savings Deliver Reduced Fuel/Freight Costs while SAE Dimensions Allow for Easy System Changeover


COLUMBUS, OH, May 26, 2010 - Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has introduced a new line of SAE aluminum tube fittings that are approximately 65% lighter than equivalent steel and stainless steel fittings to deliver customer value in terms of reduced transportation expense and more convenient hydraulic system conversion.

Specifying lightweight aluminum fittings from Parker can provide immediate fuel, freight and vehicle-transfer cost savings. The expense of converting a system from steel or stainless steel can also be minimized because no component redesign is necessary when performing a changeover - the fittings are manufactured to SAE J514 dimensions for 37° flare fittings and SAE J1453 dimensions for O-ring face seal fittings.

New aluminum connectors from Parker's Tube Fittings Division are particularly suited for applications where weight reduction and/or corrosion resistance are essential, such as military, marine, mining, transportation and aerial lift trucks. The maximum working pressure rating for the fittings is approximately 50% of equivalent steel fittings while the temperature rating ranges from -40°F to 400°F depending on the seal material.

Parker's aluminum O-ring Face Seal (ORFS) tube fittings feature patented Trap-Seal technology whereby a trapezoidal-shape seal provides superior retention in the O-ring face seal groove to prevent "pop out" associated with round-shape O-rings. This further reduces the risk of seal damage and leakage.

Another Parker-patented innovation - Robust Port Stud - offers superior seal reliability of adjustable SAE aluminum connector port ends. With no exposed threads between the locknut and backup washer, the potential for washer damage - and resulting leaks - is eliminated.

INTEGRATED CONTINUOUS THERMAL FLUID OR HOT OIL FILTRATION SYSTEM LETS PLANTS RUN MORE EFFICIENTLY AT LESS COST FOR A FAST ROI

CHARLOTTE, N. C. A heat transfer fluid filtration system that filters
contaminants down to 10 microns for enhanced plant efficiency and longer component life is now available from Liquid Process Systems, Inc. Easy to integrate within any new or existing facility, the patented Vector Series Model VB10C Thermal Fluid Filtration System from Liquid Process Systems continuously filters contaminants on a side stream basis down to 10 microns. This keeps fluids clean for higher heat transfer and plant efficiency, longer fluid life and minimum
maintenance downtime. System flow and pressure available from the plant process is used to re-circulate hot oil or thermal fluid from the pump discharge through the filter. Clean fluid is then returned to the suction side of the pump.

Industries were this technology is applied include petro-chemical recycling and refineries, automotive, die casting, adhesives, sealants, food and supplement
processing, manufactured wood, petroleum, chemical, pharmaceutical, institutional and resort textile operations, asphalt manufacturers and others. Systems are built
to comply with strict ASME Section VIII, Division 1 pressure vessel specifications.
Vector System Explained
The Vector Series Model VB10C system from Liquid Process Systems can withstand up to 150 psig (10.5 bar) of pressure and temperature up to 650°F (345°C). Flow rate and cleaning capacity is up to 15 gallons per minute (114 liters per minute) or over 900 gallons per hour (3,405 liters per hour). This is enough cleaning capacity to filter the entire volume of a smaller system several times in a typical day.

As a result, the useful life of the hot oil is increased since it is filtered and remains clean to last longer. Fouling and carbon sludge build-up are reduced, unscheduled maintenance is minimized and heat transfer efficiency is increased. With cleaner fluid, wear on moving parts such as process pump mechanical seals, impellers and valves are significantly reduced. In fact, filtering hot oil normally results in a three fold increase in pump life, according to Liquid Process
Systems.

“Not filtering the hot oil or thermal fluid at your plant could disrupt your operation at the most inconvenient time,” noted Judy Shums, President of Liquid Process Systems. “Our system is customized for quick and easy installation in your plant with only a minimum time disruption. All we have to do is make the two inlet and outlet connections by choosing either threaded, socket weld or flanged. Investment is minimal and payback is quick depending on total volume filtered. Disposable
elements are cheap and easy to replace.”

Shums added that we wouldn’t run our cars without an oil filter so why run your plant without one. Contaminants that can cause havoc to any operation are easily and efficiently removed, she said.
Vector System Explained

The Vector Series Model VB10C from Liquid Process Systems uses economical glass-fiber wound cartridges that have excellent dirt holding capacities, areeasy to change and are disposable. Life of the filter element is approximately 6 to 10 weeks, depending on condition of the fluid. Regular filter change outs can also be scheduled if preferred by maintenance and operations personnel.

As an option, an electronic filter condition monitoring system is available that
displays a flashing light or communicates directly with the plant’s computer monitoring system to notify the plant operator when filter cartridge needs replacing or when it is completely clogged.

Shums noted that initially more frequent change outs of the filter can be expected. As the fluids become cleaner, change outs become much less frequent, she said.

Fluid is drawn into the filter unit by tapping the existing piping that diverts a small percentage (usually about 10%) through the filter unit. The fluid is then cleaned and re-introduced down stream or to the suction side of the existing recirculation pumping system.
About Liquid Process Systems

Liquid Process Systems, Inc. specializes in providing customized hot oil filtration systems, pumping systems, process water filtration and process heating and cooling equipment for over 18 years in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Sauer-Danfoss Launches SIL 2 Certified Automotive Control

New Automotive Control solution provides consistent and reliable vehicle performance, with improvements in efficiency, productivity and operator comfort.

Sauer-Danfoss’ new Automotive Control (AC) solution offers OEMs a complete SIL 2 (Safety Integrity Level 2 according to IEC 61508) certified transmission system that significantly reduces OEM vehicle development, qualification expenses and new product time to market. The PLUS+1™ Compliant system incorporates an H1 variable piston pump with embedded electronic control, H1 bent axis variable piston motor, sensors and associated Human Machine
Interface (HMI) devices. Combined with intelligent software, AC provides an automotive style automatic transmission driving experience that allows operators to adjust hydrostatic
transmission characteristics to suit specific operating requirements. Combining state-of-the-art H1 technology and 25 years of electronic automotive control development, AC not only helps increase vehicle performance and overall efficiency, but also provides improvements in productivity and comfort.

Functional Safety and Easy Installation

The H1 embedded controller (H1 AC), features robust electronics mounted directly on the H1
pump. All electrical connections are conveniently located for easy OEM vehicle installation and
complete semi-automatic sensor calibration for PLUS+1 Compliant drive and inching foot
pedals, for example. The embedded controller also features additional “watch dog” circuitry,
which provides real time fault monitoring of the electronic hardware. Combined with optional
software to monitor redundant HMI input channels, H1 AC provides single fault tolerance for
AC vehicle transmission systems, SIL 2 certified by TÜV (Technischer Überwachungsverein).
This helps vehicle manufacturers meet European Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and related
safety standard (ISO 13849-1:2006), and also reduces OEM cost and time required for system
qualification and vehicle certification.

“Our H1 Automotive Control is the first solution on the market to offer the precision and
consistent performance of intelligent electronics, combined with complete drive system
functionality, system qualification and SIL 2 certification.” said Joseph P. Maher, System
Portfolio Manager. “OEMs will be able to reduce time to market for new vehicles and model
variants while still customizing vehicle behavior and providing differentiation for their products.”
The H1 AC software is easily configured to OEM requirements, and is also designed to SIL 2
IEC 61508 standard. Features include engine anti-stall and protection against engine over-speed,
extreme high and low hydraulic oil temperature conditions, and hydraulic motor over-speed. In
addition, variations in hydraulic oil viscosity affecting control performance are compensated for
automatically. The result is consistent, predictable vehicle performance irrespective of operating
temperature.


Complete Vehicle Propel Functionality and Customization
The H1 AC is customizable via the PLUS+1 Service Tool between four operator selectable
system modes that can be programmed according to three main propel methods or mode types.

Automotive Mode:
Hydrostatic pump and motor displacement are controlled automatically according to an OEM
configured automotive curve as a function of engine rpm. Typically used for vehicle transport or
to provide engine anti-stall functionality during heavy load conditions common on wheel loaders,
telehandlers, or site dumpers.

Non-automotive Mode:
Hydrostatic pump displacement is controlled directly through a foot pedal or joystick input from
the operator and is independent of engine rpm. Typically used during vehicle work requiring a
specific engine speed setting for work functions common on sweepers, snow blowers, or
mowers.

Creep-automotive Mode:
The creep-automotive mode provides pump control via an algorithm that combines both the
engine rpm and the foot pedal or joystick inputs.

Additional benefits include the ability to further customize hydraulic pump and motor
displacement control profile and ramp times, provide constant speed drive functionality,
interface to vehicle systems via CAN, and easy-to-use diagnostics.

Using the PLUS+1 Service Tool AC software service screens, the OEM can configure up to 4
different operator-selectable system modes with varying vehicle drive behaviors to meet a variety
of application requirements. The system modes are selected through switch settings on the
vehicle, and allow OEMs to configure working and driving modes, tailor driving behavior to suit
specific working conditions or even the skill levels of operators. This enables the OEM to use
the same hardware for a range of vehicles with different software settings, significantly improving
vehicle manufacturing flexibility. The software set-up service screens provide OEMs with a step
reduction in both development time and expense for highly differentiated new vehicle designs.

NG 6 intermediate plates with pressure control valves and bypass valves

HAWE Hydraulik SE, Munich, has developed additional versions of its intermediate plate, type NZP, with the hole pattern NG 6, thereby pursuing its strategy of offering components with tried and tested HAWE technology and hole patterns that conform with industry standards.

Newly added are versions for pressure control valves of the types CDK and CLK. Both these types are built as directional seated valves, which means that they are leakproof when closed. The CLK pressure control valve has an additional safety valve function so it can be integrated into clamping circuits that are pressurized for an extended period of time and subjected to the unwanted pressure increases due to temperature oscillations. The valve is equally well suited for systems in which processing forces or other external factors can trigger inadmissible high pressure peaks. The combination of the NZP intermediate plate with pressure control valves was devised to withstand operating pressures of up to 500 bar and a volume flow of up to 22 l/min.

Further new versions are realized by combining the intermediate plate with directional seated bypass valves. These arrangements connect the hydro consumer and/or the return at volume flows of up to 20 l/min and operating pressure of up to 400 bar, depending on the dimension of the
solenoid. Other versions with energy-saving 8-Watt solenoids are also available.

The combination of intermediate plates and drain valves can be used to relieve consumers that are shut with zero-leakage directional seated valves.

Intermediate plates enable the flexible and straightforward assembly of hydraulic controls. Already existing intermediate plate versions can be combined with throttle valves and restrictor check valves as well as proportional pressure valves.

Sauer-Danfoss launches H1 Bent Axis Motor

The new H1 bent axis motor joins the successful H1 family, providing further improvements in efficiency, reliability, and flexibility.

NORDBORG, Denmark,  – Sauernfoss Inc. (NYSE:SHS) Sauer-Danfoss has released its new H1 60cm3 bent axis motor, the next size in a series of motors designed to complement the growing range of H1 axial piston pumps. With the introduction of the H1 bent axis motors, Sauer-Danfoss offers a complete H1 transmission system, optimized around electrical control. The H1 motors not only provide OEMs with improvements in reliability and flexibility, but also provide higher overall efficiency, resulting in lower fuel consumption and reduced life cycle costs. Typical applications that will benefit from the new H1 bent axis 60cm³ motor are rough terrain forklifts, combines, sprayers, road rollers, wheel loaders and road building equipment.

The new H1 bent axis variable displacement motors have been designed to ensure outstanding reliability and high quality. Optimized for electrical control, they are fully PLUS+1TM Compliant, enabling seamless integration with Sauer-Danfoss’ electronic machine control architecture. To withstand the harshest working environments, the electrical controls are designed with an IP67 and IP69K rating. The H1 60cm³ bent axis motor is an evolution of proven technologies centered on a high displacement ratio of 32 degrees, zero degree capability, and higher overall efficiency. This combination provides a unique range of benefits that fit any OEM’s requirements for machine design.

High Efficiency
An extensive simulation and testing program for the H1 bent axis motors has resulted in significant improvements in overall efficiency and an extremely low pressure drop within the fluid galleries of the motor. The H1 bent axis motors have a 6 percent efficiency gain at maximum displacement (high torque working cycle), compared to the nearest competitor.


Zero Degree Capability
A key feature of the new H1 motors is their zero degree capability. It provides for seamless 'on the go' shifting from 32 to zero degrees, such as in wheel assist applications, providing for a smooth transition with little or no torque interruptions or sudden speed changes. This enhanced control is not only more precise, but also improves the feel of the system during operation. The H1 motor will also shift seamlessly between two speed ranges, for example, work mode and travel mode, regardless of displacement settings. “The value that zero degree capability brings to the customer is the flexibility in design to meet many machine operating conditions,” says Horvat. “It enables OEMs to offer additional features, such as anti-slip functionality and torque control, which optimize the use of available power and improve productivity.”

Optimized for Electrical Control
Energy conservation and functional safety (Safety Integrity Level – SIL) is driving the demand for electronic engine management and vehicle control for off-road mobile machinery. As such, H1 bent axis motors have been designed around electrical controls, which allow a range of vehicle control concepts to be produced using the same motor hardware. With electronic control, the H1 system can be optimized to match the requirements of specific vehicle functions by adjusting the software parameters.

Designed for Quality and Reliability
H1 motors have been developed around a common design concept, in order to ensure outstanding motor performance. This design commonality provides improvements in quality and reliability at the factory level and leads to benefits of uniformity and familiarity at the OEM level, supporting standardized machine design.

The H1 motors have the shortest length of any motor available on the market today, and at least one “clean side”, increasing vehicle design flexibility and facilitating installation. The higher speed capability of the motors also results in a high corner power and power density. This provides more power without increasing the size of the motors, which not only saves additional space, but also enables OEMs to design more compact system solutions.
 

 

Eaton’s 420 Series Piston Pumps with Hydro-mechanical Torque Control

Help Compact Equipment Users Meet Emissions, Fuel Economy Standards

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. . . . Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation has added a hydro-mechanical torque control option and several performance upgrades to its 420 open circuit piston pump product line. The 420 pump with hydro-mechanical torque control automatically senses heavy loads and adjusts hydraulic fluid flow accordingly.

It is intended for moderate-flow, high-pressure mobile applications such as compact wheel loaders, telehandlers, rough terrain forklifts, telescopic booms, sweepers, backhoe loaders, and garbage trucks.

To accommodate the new torque control, the pump housing was designed to decrease airborne noise to 76 dBA at 1,800 rpm and 207 bar. A case-to-inlet check valve \ was added to improve cold weather operation and provide added protection to the seals and rotating group. The new torque control works in parallel with the standard compensator, using a special mechanism to replace the control piston.

“In compact and mid-size equipment, torque almost always needs to be controlled,” said Eaton Product Manager Todd McIntyre. “Limiting the torque at the pump shaft across a wide range of engine speeds provides operators with the benefits of increased productivity, greater efficiency and fewer engine stalls. The result is lower engine emissions and improved fuel economy.

“Productivity is enhanced by increasing the speed with which the vehicle function is performed due to flow rate changes made by the torque control system. For example, raising a heavy load with a set of forks on a telehandler places a significant amount of pressure on the hydraulic pump and system. To prevent engine stalls without limiting the telehandler’s lifting capacity, manufacturers not using torque control would be forced to use a smaller displacement pump that significantly slows the operation of the forks. Torque control automatically senses heavy loads and adjusts flow accordingly. Limiting the flow in high pressure situations limits the torque the pump can apply to the engine and, as a result, avoids the corner horsepower point and prevents the engine from stalling. It also allows for higher flow and quicker operation when the set of forks is empty, which means higher productivity.”

Eaton’s 420 pumps offer outstanding power density that is not compromised by the use of torque control.

New Parker Piston Pumps Offer Efficient Operation in Hydraulic Fan Drive Systems

New Parker Piston Pumps Offer Efficient Operation in Hydraulic Fan Drive Systems, Further Reducing Fuel Consumption and Emissions Output for Off-Highway Vehicles
MARYSVILLE, OH - New 18 and 28cc P1/PD Series piston pumps are now available from Parker Hannifin, the global leader in motion and control technologies. Design optimized for open-circuit applications, P1/PD pumps can enhance the performance of hydraulic fan drive systems, helping reduce fuel consumption and emissions output for off-highway vehicles.

EPA Tier 4 emissions standards for off-highway diesel engines are forcing engineers to develop new solutions for cooling construction, agricultural and industrial equipment. Hydraulic fan drive systems - an alternative to traditional belt-driven fans - have received increasing attention in recent years. The ability to control fan speed independent of engine speed provides significantly improved cooling efficiency and fuel economy.

P1/PD pumps are engineered for continuous, reliable, efficient operation at the higher temperatures and pressures at work in today's emissions-compliant diesels. In a variable electro-hydraulically controlled fan system, a P1/PD pump can provide up to 5% fuel savings and reduce cooler size by up to 50% compared to a standard fixed displacement system.

Parker's new 18 and 28cc displacement pumps are best suited for improving the performance of fan drive, steering, accessory and load sensing systems on construction and material handling equipment including backhoes, excavators, skid steers, telehandlers and cranes. Including 45, 60, 75, 100 and 140cc displacement models, the P1/PD Series is now complete with a variable, axial piston pump solution for a wide range of medium-duty mobile (P1) and industrial (PD) applications.

Besides fuel savings and emissions reductions, customers will appreciate the P1/PD pumps' compact size, which allows considerable mounting flexibility. Their low noise output also helps companies comply with OSHA "Noise at Work" standards - particularly in industrial settings - while potentially reducing the expense of extra sound insulation for machines.

Worldwide, P1/PD pumps are used in a wide range of applications including concrete pumpers, oilfield power units, mining hauling trucks, horizontal drillers, marine bow thrusters, military transport vehicles, water jet cutters, plastic extrusion machines, head presses and injection molders, among many others.

Rated for continuous operation at pressures up to 280 bar, P1/PD pumps feature:

• Compact, round housing (quieter than comparable "flat surface" designs)
• Low flow ripple to further reduce noise
• Simple hydraulic controls with "no leak" adjustments
• Elastomer seals to eliminate gaskets and external leakage
• SAE and ISO standard mounting flanges and ports
• Tapered-roller shaft bearings
• Low friction, hydrostatically balanced swash plate saddle bearings
• Full power through-drive capability
• End or side inlet and outlet ports
• Case drain ports for horizontal or vertical shaft-up mounting
• Optional maximum and minimum volume stops
• Optional case-to-inlet check valve to extend shaft seal life

Several control options are also available:

• Standard pressure limiter
• Pressure limiter and torque control
• Load sensing with pressure limiter

NEW Dual-Function Solenoid Valve for both Bypass Unloading and Pressure Relief

HydraForce SVRV10-26 dual-function cartridge valves combine the features of a normally-open solenoid valve with an integral non-adjustable relief valve. It is designed to be both cost-efficient and compact in hydraulic circuits incorporating both a bypass unloading function, as well as system pressure protection.

This valve can be used in a wide variety of system applications. An example motor control circuit is shown below. In the de-energized position, pump flow is bypassed to the tank, allowing the motors to remain in the neutral condition. When the SVRV valve is energized, flow is directed to the motor, while the maximum motor torque is regulated by the setting of the SVRV’s integral relief valve.

The SVRV relief setting is fixed and non-adjustable. There are five standard pressure setting options, ranging from 104 bar (1500 psi) to 240 bar (3500 psi). Others can be made available upon OEM request. The SVRV10-26 is rated for flow up to 75 lpm (20 gpm) and pressure to 310 bar (4500 psi). Standard HydraForce 10-size “D” and “E” Series coils are used on the cartridge.

The new SVRV multi-function valve was developed to allow a smaller and lighter valve package, while simultaneously reducing the cost of both manifold machining and assembly by combining two functions into a single valve.

HydraForce is committed to continuing innovation in the design, manufacture, and application of hydraulic and electro-hydraulic control components and systems for the material handling and heavy-duty mobile equipment OEM industries.

Cofair Products, Inc announces the introduction of self-adhering Tite Seal Hydraulic Hose Protector.

This revolutionary product provides a quick and easy solution to “hose chafing”, the leading cause of hydraulic hose failure. Its unique abrasion-resistant neoprene protective barrier material was originally developed for use in the harsh environment of coal mines. Tite Seal Hydraulic Hose Protector’s aggressive adhesive allows the protective wrap to be applied to the isolated specific areas of potential hose chafing, as opposed to covering the entire length of hose, thereby saving both time and money. Unlike traditional spiral hose protectors that require a different size protector for each hose diameter, with Tite Seal Hydraulic Hose Protector, one size fits all. The unique design of the neoprene wrap allows hoses to flex and bend, and also allows the material to be applied even after the hose has been installed on equipment.

Tite Seal Hydraulic Hose Protector is available in 12’ and 50’ rolls in retail packaging, and also in 300’ bulk rolls. It will be widely available throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Sauer-Danfoss Microcontrollers Advance Machine Control and Design Differentiation Capabilities

New MC038-010 and MC050-055 microcontrollers offer additional key features to extend the PLUS+1TM family for complete vehicle control solutions.

Sauer-Danfoss Inc. (NYSE:SHS) Release of the Sauer-Danfoss MC038-010 and MC050-055 microcontrollers expands the range of control functions and design options available to OEM designers for off-road vehicles. As part of the flexible, powerful, expandable and growing PLUS+1TM family of mobile machine management products, these new microcontrollers are versatile. They are general purpose controllers, equally suited for use as part of a distributed machine control system, with intelligence in every node, or as a stand alone controller – for both hydraulics and other machine functions.

“When we first introduced PLUS+1 in 2004, we envisioned an easily programmable and versatile family of control system tools for OEMs to use in their new machine designs,” says Dan Ricklefs, Product Portfolio Manager. “In addition to the essentials of hydraulic control, we’re now able to offer options for control of small DC motors, lighting and other electrical functions plus expanded input functionalities. The bottom line is the new microcontrollers help address machine productivity and the effect of emission requirements on machine design – so that vehicles will work faster, longer and with lower fuel consumption. They also add new vehicle differentiation possibilities to the PLUS+1 family. Now designers can create new solutions that leverage the electronics of a vehicle, controlling anything from dome lights, to raising ladders or opening hoods.”

MC038-010 Microcontrollers
Designed as a 38-pin controller, the MC038-010 features 15 inputs and 13 outputs, including
6 amp and 10 amp outputs. With the highest output current capability in the PLUS+1 family, it’s suitable for night lighting, control of variable speed DC electric motors and high current solenoids – and can reduce the need for fuses and relays.

The MC038-010 is also the first PLUS+1 controller to feature a “sleep mode”. When in sleep mode, outputs are disabled and the microcontroller enters a low power consumption condition. When one or more inputs change state, this micro “wakes up”. This ultimately enables the designer to power certain functions without the machine running, opening the possibility for more automotive style features.

MC050-055 Microcontrollers
The MC050-055 features 36 input pins, three Controller Area Network (CAN) ports, three output pins and three levels of sensor power supply. With its high number of inputs and multiple CAN ports, this 50-pin controller facilitates CAN bus system capabilities and data management between multiple CAN bus systems.

This microcontroller can capture several operator inputs and make data available to the CAN networks. It’s ideal for machines requiring a large number of switch and analog inputs on the operator control panel. Due to multiple sensor voltage levels, it can be used for digital signal fault detection, making a broad range of digital diagnostics possible. Machine designers now have an easily employed tool to increase vehicle system safety, reliability and serviceability.

Integrating Machine Control
Ricklefs adds, “Our two new controllers add valuable capabilities for the OEM designer who wants to look beyond hydraulic control and add functionality to machines. Obviously these controllers are well suited for many applications in agriculture, construction and road building. They’re naturals for machines like tractors, harvesters and trenchers to mention a few.”

Common to both controllers is the PLUS+1 GUIDE software development tool. Users enjoy a graphical drag and drop approach to developing machine control software. An extensive application software library is available for machine development. Sauer-Danfoss further supports PLUS+1 users with classroom training, e-learning, Web, e-mail and help
desk telephone support. PLUS+1 Compliant products such as graphical displays, joysticks, pumps, motors and sensors complete the PLUS+1 family.

Built with the same robust environmental and mechanical features as other PLUS+1 products, a rugged IP67 enclosure keeps out the elements and EMI immunity extends to 100 volts/meter.

“The new microcontrollers continue to expand the PLUS+1 product line and increase our capabilities to serve customer needs based on both market requirements and emission regulations worldwide. Development of PLUS+1 products will continue. It’s the future of machine management,” said Ricklefs.

About Sauer-Danfoss
Sauer-Danfoss Inc. is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture, and sale of engineered hydraulic, electric and electronic systems and components for use primarily in applications of mobile equipment. Sauer-Danfoss had revenues of $2.1 billion in 2008 and has sales, manufacturing and engineering capabilities in Europe, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region.

New D Series Gear Motor Excels in Demanding Off-Road Applications

Sauer-Danfoss introduces cast iron motor for maximum performance, efficiency, extended life and installation flexibility.

AMES, Iowa, USA,  – Sauer-Danfoss Inc. (NYSE:SHS) Sauer-Danfoss new D Series cast iron gear motor provides a 276 bar [4000 psi] solution in a ductile, three piece housing, complete with an electrohydraulic proportional relief valve. Suited for heavy duty fan drives and powering work functions, from mining conveyors, road pavers and crushers to flail and side angle mowers, it perfectly complements the Sauer-Danfoss D Series cast iron gear pump.

“Many off-road applications are known for extreme performance requirements – like the ability to consistently perform under varying high load conditions and withstand dust, dirt and high temperatures. Enter Tier IV and Stage III B engine emission requirements,” says Jeff Brenner, Product Portfolio Manager, “and you have engines running at even higher temperatures, with greater need for cooling.”

The D Series motor is an excellent choice for variable speed fan drive systems. In addition to handling very high cooling demand, an EH proportional relief valve maximizes available machine horsepower by providing cooling only as needed. The electronic interface makes the D Series motor fully PLUS+1™ Compliant to integrate with PLUS+1™ microcontrollers and other compliant products including sensors and graphical displays.

Brenner continues, “With D Series motors, our focus is on four key product attributes: increased performance, efficiency, extended life or durability and installation flexibility.”

Increased Performance
The D Series motors exceed the capabilities of aluminum motors in applications requiring high pressure, 276 bar [4000 psi] vs. 207 bar [3000 psi], high temperatures and duty cycles. Fan speeds can be controlled to maintain optimum engine and hydraulic system temperatures. Fan reversing capability enables a radiator cleaning cycle. When used in conveyors, the D Series motors offer excellent starting torque to control the conveyor speed while optimizing feed rates and maintaining speed under varying load conditions.

Greater Efficiency/Extended Life
The use of the EH proportional relief valve makes fan drives up to 50 percent more efficient than direct or belt drives. In the remote possibility of valve failure, fan speed defaults to the highest setting to maintain cooling integrity. The D Series motors also incorporate high temperature seals and a dust resistant shaft seal which improve performance under extreme temperature and pressure conditions – and extend operating life. The bronze sleeve bushings in the front flange are lined with Teflon® PTFE, and provide increased radial load capability before requiring the use of outrigger bearings.

Installation Flexibility
The D Series compact design is 20 percent smaller than a conventional motor. Shorter length and consequent higher power density help to ease installation in tighter places. The side or rear port options come in a variety of styles, and add to greater machine design flexibility.

“Many benefits result from the D Series motors’ modular configuration, such as multiple installation options. Our intent is to maximize ways for OEMs to meet their most demanding machine design and operation requirements,” concludes Eric Slocombe, Product Development Engineer.

Major Development in Air Driven Liquid Pumps:

New Intensifier Pump is Tough and Affordable

Milford, Conn., – Hydraulic pressures from 100 to 5,000 psi with only 60 psi air drive pressure can be achieved with a newly improved air driven liquid intensifier pump.

Designed and built in the USA by Interface Devices, Inc. (IDI), the TASQ™ LINE pumps incorporate robust design features such as aerospace PTFE based dynamic seals and aircraft quality aluminum components in a compact package. The company reports the TASQ LINE design objective was to offer increased value through a simple, robust and affordable air driven pump with significantly longer service life.

TASQ LINE air driven liquid pumps are well suited for intermittent flow and pressure applications such as clamping, crimping, roll tensioning, static pressure testing and power work holding. The pumps consume little or no energy upon achieving the desired hydraulic pressure. In this way, no heat is generated while maintaining pressure, eliminating the need for larger than required oil reservoirs and heat exchangers required with electric driven hydraulic units.

TASQ LINE pumps are all built to a standard specification including an NFPA DO3 (CETOP 3) valve pad and a self-contained oil reservoir sized from 40 to 120 cubic inches. The pumps come in hydraulic ratios from 5:1 to 60:1 of inlet air pressure.

IDI reports they will inventory all ratios to facilitate prompt deliveries.
For applications requiring complex hydraulic circuitry, IDI also offers E, H & P Series air driven liquid pumps. These come in double acting and multi-ratio configurations for optimal efficiency. Multi-ratio pumps use a patented design to deliver high flow at low pressure and switch to high pressure mode on demand so minimum compressed air is used for each pressure cycle. The hydraulic pump bodies can be configured like a custom manifold for multi-faceted hydraulic functions in a compact package.

NEW UNISPEED USFL 90/37 from OP S.r.l. 90° and 37° orbital flaring in one machine.

UNISPEED USFL 90/37 is the new machine for 37° and 90° orbital flaring of hydraulic rigid pipe ends with ISO 8434-2 and ISO 8434-3 fitting systems.

Practical and easy to use: these are the main features of this machine which requires only one tool change to carry out the flaring operations. This way, processing time is reduced to the minimum since it is carried out easily without the need of additional equipment.

The machine uses a cold orbital forming process to create a flat and smooth sealing surface at 90° and 37° with a suitable rugosity for the O-Ring seal. By doing so, it avoids the formation of processing signs which, on the other hand, can occasionally occur with common axial deformation processes.

This system is compliant with the pipe flaring requirements regulated by SAE and ISO standards. The various possibilities of adjustment and configuration of USFL9037 allow obtaining any flaring diameter and thickness.

The semi-automatic processing cycle allows the flaring process to be very fast, thus reducing costs and avoiding welding or soldering the clamping ring to the pipe end.

Moreover, the final cycle lay-up ensures optimal flaring and finishing results.

Clean, DRY Oil for Lubrication and Hydraulic Systems Now a Reality

While it has largely been understood that clean, dry oil is desirable for lubrication and hydraulic fluids, attaining it has not been practical or cost effective for most users. The high cost of conventional oil purifiers usually mandates that they are dedicated only to fairly large and/or expensive systems, or that they be used periodically among several applications. However, periodic conditioning does not ensure continuous water removal for each system. These challenges have prevented most lubrication and hydraulic systems from being able to benefit from the use of advanced water removal technology.

UltiDri® changes that. The patented UltiDri oil dehydrator was designed to offer Porous Media’s advanced water removal technology in a cost effective, compact size and format which can be used as a permanent installation on individual reservoirs or systems. UltiDri removes all free, emulsified and dissolved water down to 25 ppm or lower.

UltiDri dehydrators have been designed with ease-of-use in mind. Operation is simple, requiring no routine operator intervention. There are no valves or controls to adjust. No liquid level gauges to monitor. No drains to deal with. Simply turn on the switch and the UltiDri does the rest. Continuously. Reliably.

Part of the reason for this is that, with the exception of an oil pump, there are no moving parts. As oil flows through the UltiDri, it passes through an internal membrane which distributes the oil into a relatively thin film over a large contactor area. The system's integral air dryer provides the extremely dry air used to create a driving force for mass transfer of the water from the oil. The removed moisture is exhausted to atmosphere in the form of harmless water vapor. This internal advanced separation system prevents oil and oil vapor from being expelled into the surrounding environment.

All UltiDri dehydrators come with Porous Media’s high-performance GENESIS® coreless filters. The GENESIS technology ensures high fluid quality while simultaneously lowering overall operating costs and reducing waste.

There is an UltiDri for virtually any application, available in flow rates from less than 1 gpm to 32 gpm or larger. Systems are optimized based on a multitude of factors (oil type, oil viscosity, reservoir size, typical water content, etc.), and may be customized for OEM’s and packagers.

UltiDri dehydrators significantly reduce the cost of oil dehydration, by 50 - 75% as compared with conventional oil purifiers! This finally makes the concept of “dry” in Clean, Dry Oil a reality for virtually any application or reservoir size on a continuous basis.

Sauer DanfossNew Sauer-Danfoss H1 bent axis motors

New Sauer-Danfoss H1 bent axis motors join the successful H1 family, providing further improvements in efficiency, reliability, and flexibility.

NEUMÜNSTER, GERMANY – SAUER-DANFOSS INC. (NYSE:SHS) Sauer-Danfoss has released its new H1 80cm3 and 110cm3 bent axis motors, the first sizes in a new series of motors designed to complement the growing family of H1 axial piston pumps. With the introduction of the H1 bent axis motors, Sauer-Danfoss is now able to provide a complete H1 transmission system, optimized around electrical control. The H1 motors not only provide OEMs with improvements in reliability and flexibility, but also provide higher overall efficiency, resulting in lower fuel consumption and reduced life cycle costs.

The new H1 bent axis variable displacement motors have been designed to ensure outstanding reliability and high quality. Optimized for electrical control, they are fully PLUS+1TM Compliant, enabling seamless integration with Sauer-Danfoss’ electronic machine control architecture - Plug and Perform®. And with an IP 69 rating, the electrical controls are able to withstand the harshest working environments.

“We are pleased to introduce the H1 bent axis motors, which perfectly complement the successful H1 pump family” says Hans-Peter Nissen, Product Portfolio Manager, “With proven 32 degree bent axis technology, zero degree capability and higher overall efficiency, our new motors offer OEMs a number of significant advantages. The H1 propel system provides improved horsepower management, and enables advanced anti-slip or wheel-assist control functions.”

High Efficiency
An extensive simulation and testing program for the H1 bent axis motors has resulted in significant improvements in overall efficiency and an extremely low pressure drop in the galleries. This helps improve fuel economy and frees power for other vehicle functions, enhancing operating performance and increasing productivity. “Tier 4 and Euro IIIb emission standards will require intelligent utilization of engine power,” says Nissen, “and this will be strongly supported by our new H1 family of products.”

Zero Degree Capability
A key feature of the new H1 motors is their zero degree capability. The ability to seamlessly reduce the angle to zero degrees means there is no torque interruption, or sudden change in speed when switching from, for example, work range to travel range. This enhanced control is not only more precise, but also improves the feel of the system during operation. “Zero degree capability enables OEMs to provide additional features,” says Nissen, “including accurate anti-slip and torque control functions, which increase vehicle productivity and optimize power utilization” The zero degree capability also enables a wheel assist solution without the need for additional technology. “Even true two-speed applications, for example a crop sprayer, can be supported by this great feature,” states Nissen.

Optimized for Electrical Control
Electronic engine management and electrical vehicle control is the future of mobile machinery. As such, H1 motors have been designed around advanced electrical controls, which allow a range of vehicle control concepts to be produced using the same motor hardware. By adjusting the software parameter settings, the system can be optimized to match the requirements of specific vehicle functions.

Designed for Quality and Reliability
H1 motors have been developed around a common design concept, in order to ensure outstanding motor performance. This design commonality provides improvements in quality and reliability at the factory level and leads to benefits of uniformity and familiarity at the OEM level, supporting standardized machine design.

The H1 motors have the shortest length of any motor available on the market today, and at least one “clean side”, increasing vehicle design flexibility and facilitating installation. The higher speed capability of the motors also results in a high corner power and power density. This provides more power without increasing the size of the motors, which not only saves additional space, but also enables OEMs to design more compact system solutions.

HAWE HYDRAULICS COMPACT PUMP IDEAL FOR WIND POWER PLANTS

Hydraulic brake control increases service life, saves space and weight

HAWE Hydraulics, a leading supplier of sophisticated controls to the mobile and industrial markets, announces the type KA power unit, the latest model in the HAWE Hydraulics product line. The compact power unit type KA increases the service life of costly components such as gearboxes, rotor blades, tower and foundations by hydraulically controlling yaw and rotor blades, thus reducing wear and tear on the braking function. These compact power units mount next to an actuator making them an excellent fit for localized installations.

The hydraulic power unit consists of a tank with an integrated submerged motor, a radial piston or gear pump that is directly attached to the motor shaft (without a coupling) and a connection block. The modules are mounted directly onto the connection block. In the event of a disruption to the braking module that may cause interference, the disruption can be identified and the module easily exchanged with no need to remove any hoses connected to the consumers.

All components are made of steel and therefore, capable of withstanding extremely high pressure. The radial piston pumps can supply pressurized oil up to 10,000 psi, while the valves are designed for pressures in excess of 5,800 psi. The pressure level of wind power plants is below 3,600 psi, so the extremely durable pumps and valves are ideal for use in these installations. Because of their compact build, they can be transported without a crane.

For safety reasons, the brakes of a wind power plant must be reliable at all times therefore; HAWE Hydraulics uses leak-free directional seated valves. These valves have a considerably higher switching reliability than the directional spool valves, as dirt particles are flushed out when the valve is open. This type of design prevents silting that can occur and cause spool valves to stick.

The type KA compact power unit has been designed for maximum efficiency with minimal weight and space requirements and can be used either vertically or horizontally. Three tank extensions allow for differing oil volume requirements. Depending on the tank extension the usage volume can be increased from a minimum of two liters to a maximum of ten liters. The power unit can be operated with all voltages, including 690V and is also available in a “Cold Climate” version.

HAWE offers active and passive brake control, with or without a flushing function for the brakes and brake lines. Additional modules are available for adjusting the pitch, roof openers for the turbine pod, rotor lock, and control of on-board handling cranes.

Elettrotec's new LMVG-01 single-point variable level float switch
 
Elettrotec's new LMVG-01 single-point variable level float switch now features an upper flange entirely made of nylon composed of a reed switch and a special slot for tightening by key. The magnet is placed in the upper part of the stainless steel control bar to which it is integrally
mounted, while the float made of NBR moves directly along the flange.

This new model features a series of product innovations:
– the float contains no magnetic parts and thus is well-suited for fluids containing metal particles, as a result no deposits or residues remain on the float

– the control bar, made of stainless steel, contains no electrical devices or connections, thus enhancing product performance, and ease of use and safety; all electrical connections are
enclosed in the upper flange and are accessed by means of a special connector

– the control bar can be severed at the bottom with a conventional pipe cutter to reach required length; before cutting, simply remove the float and then push it back into place when finished. Alternatively, a through-hole float can be mounted in place of the standard float, by changing the
position of the float along the control bar until the required set point is reached.

The new LMVG.01 float level switch is extremely intuitive and easy to use. Thanks to its threaded attachment, It is vertically fixed to the system. When the set level is reached, the control bar is
pushed by the float and slides the magnet inside the flange by actuating the reed switch or switches located on the flange.

Pentair Industrial introduces the Driflex™ Oil Conditioning System
 
Pentair Industrial introduces the Driflex™ Oil Conditioning System for complete removal of free, emulsified and dissolved water from a wide variety of industrial and mobile
lubrication and hydraulic systems. On average, oil contamination from dirt and water causes 70-80% of lubricated equipment wear and failures. Driflex decreases water  concentration and improves particulate filtration effectiveness to optimize oil condition and minimize equipment wear, reducing maintenance expenses and costly downtime.

Driflex achieves oil dehydration by utilizing the fundamental principles of mass transfer: Moisture diffuses from regions of high concentration to low, such as from oil contaminated with moisture to dry air. First, oil is pumped from its reservoir through Driflex’s high efficiency particle filter, which cleans the oil and protects the system’s dehydration contactor from damage. The oil then flows through Driflex’s dehydration contactor while extremely dry air sweeps over the outside. The moisture differential within the contactor causes the moisture to be transferred from the oil to the air, and exhausted out of the system as moisturized air. Environmentally, no wastewater or other
disposables are generated in the process—and the oil returns to the reservoir.

Unlike vacuum purifiers, Driflex is cost-effective, conveniently sized and easy to maintain—with no moving parts or flow/level controls to adjust. Its compact design makes it well suited for periodic use on reservoirs throughout an entire facility. Driflex may also be dedicated to a particular reservoir to provide continuous conditioning, ensuring that oil is optimized without the fluctuations in water concentration that occur with periodic oil purification or replacement.

This advanced oil conditioning technology leads to significant savings in operation and maintenance expenses. For example, decreasing water concentration from 250 ppm to 40 ppm
can triple bearing life, reducing replacement and labor costs—and increasing overall profitability. With its simple, reliable operation, Driflex enhances equipment performance and optimizes service life—at a cost-effective price.

Pentair Industrial manufactures and markets a broad range of industrial filtration products including filter cartridges, filter bags, cartridge housings and bag housings plus
numerous related filtration accessories. Long known for quality filtration products and patented technologies, Pentair engineers key filtration solutions for oil & gas, food &
beverage, power generation, petrochemical, paint & ink, municipal, medical, pharmaceutical and other industrial market sectors. For more information, contact Pentair Industrial,

Elettrotec's ETC-01programmable electronic temperature switches
 
Elettrotec's ETC-01programmable electronic temperature switches have been designed to meet themost demanding application re-quirements in industrial processing and measurement systems. In partic-ular, they have been designed forunits which require temperature monitoring to assure proper opera-tion. If the preset temperaturethresholds are exceeded, thes witches activate to restore optimum system performance. For example,when applied to reduction gears or hydraulic power units, these switches can monitor the maximum and min-imum vacuum pressures and activate a cooling circuit to restore the preset or safety value.

The device is based on an NTC sensor (semiconductor thermistor)shrouded in a rugged brass or alu-minium flange that can be manufactured in different shapes, patterns or materials (brass, aluminium and soon) depending on the application type and according to the sensor's maximum size.

The same applies to the threaded mounting as well. The sensor is controlled by a programmable electronic circuitry housed in analuminium body above the sensor, providing protection from overload,polarity reversal, shorts or opens in electrical circuits.

Another important feature of thenew ETC-01 is maximum precision:the set point and restore point tem-peratures have tolerances very closeto one degree in a very wide range from -10 to +90°C, as well as very nar-row differentials, i.e. temperature gaps between set points and restorepoints, in the order of ± 2 °C.

Finally, the absence ofmoving mechanical partsminimizes wear and ensures a virtually endless lifeof the device. Elettrotec's ETC-01 programmable electronic temperature switches are equipped with atransparent DIN43650 plug housing inside two LEDs: a red LED to signalthat the actuation point has been reached and a green LED to indicatethe proper voltage flow.

The output is available in two models: PNP or NPN Open Collectorat 500 mA maximum. Moreover, the set point, hysteresis restore point and the Normally Open/Normally Closed (NO/NC) function can all be easily adjusted by the user by means of two configuration buttons and a green LED accessible from the blackscrew plug located on the aluminium body.

These set point and restore point adjustment buttons ensure rapid and easy calibration. Moreover, their arrangement allows for quick programming of the temperature switch with the simple touch of the finger, without having to interrupt the power supply or use special tools.

Variable-speed Pump Drives from Rexroth Cut Noise, Save Energy

Rexroth uses speed reduction on hydraulic pumps to increase energy-savings and reduce noise

(Bethlehem, PA – www.boschrexroth-us.com) Over the past few decades, the technical development of hydraulic machine tools has been driven by the desire to increase efficiency (accuracy, cycle time, etc.). Now, the use of proportional and high-response valves along with variable displacement pumps and electrohydraulic control to improve energy efficiency have been in the foreground. In the last few years, requirements for energy saving and noise reduction have become increasingly stricter. Rexroth responds to these changing market requirements with the use of variable-speed pump drives (DvP).

With variable-speed pump drives, Rexroth opens up new possibilities of cutting lifecycle costs while complying with user specifications. On the variable-speed pump drive Rexroth relocates the closed-loop control into the converter, unlike conventional variable displacement pumps where an asynchronous motor controls the displacement and pressure via internal control mechanisms.

During the non-machining time and partial load operation when no hydraulic flow is required, the frequency converter reduces the speed of the electric drive and the fixed displacement motor. This reduces energy consumption, hydraulic power losses which are introduced into the oil, and noise emission. As soon as the hydraulic system requires more power, the converter adjusts the speed in line with demands.

Rexroth applies this principle in two ways, combining its drive and control expertise in both hydraulics and electric drives. In the first method a high-dynamics servomotor provides the required torques at very short acceleration times. Rexroth’s intelligent converter evaluates command values and the actual values provided by a pressure cell and adjusts the speed accordingly. Pre-parameterized software considers hydraulics-specific controller strategies and automatically compensates for non-linearities of fluid power technology. This method results in remarkable reductions in energy costs, hydraulic power losses and noise emissions.

In the second method, a standard asynchronous motor assumes the drive function. The dynamic Rexroth converter IndraDrive Fc controls the speed of the electric motor, and the control loop is closed using a pressure cell. When operated continuously at low speed, this method requires an external fan on the electric drive motor. Compared with the servomotor method, this solution features significantly lower acquisition costs.

Both methods fit seamlessly into decentralized and central control architectures of machine tools. Depending on the specific machine concept, the manufacturer can integrate the converters from Rexroth in the control cabinet or mount directly on the hydraulic power unit. Speed-related pump drives also cut lifecycle cost when retrofitted to existing machines.

HAWE HYDRAULICS TO ANNOUNCE EXPANSION OF THE NBVP ZERO LEAK NG6 VALVE PROGRAM AT IMTS 2008

HAWE Hydraulics, a leading supplier of sophisticated controls to the mobile and industrial markets, will be announcing a significant expansion to the range of products for applications of NBVP16 seated valves in booth F-2878 at the IMTS show, September 8-13, 2008 at the McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

The NBVP 16 seated valves are designed for clamping functions in machine tools, machining centers, and energy efficient systems. HAWE has significantly expanded the range of possible applications by designing several new flow patterns for the cone seated valves of type NBVP 16.
While typical 2/2, 3/2, 4/2 and 4 way, 3 position functions of directional valves can be fulfilled with either spool valves or seated valves, the seated valve offers significant advantages. Zero leak seated valves eliminate the need for pumps to continually charge a hydraulic system, as they would need to do when using spool valves. This valve is also more tolerant of contamination in the system due to its design and constant flushing.

The seated valve also offers energy-saving intermittent service, and reduces the required volume of oil. Once the clamping pressure has been reached, the valve ensures that the clamping pressure is safely maintained. The pump itself switches off or goes into circulation mode until the next clamping sequence, while the power units cool the system down through its design characteristics.
HAWE’s modular design system provides different types of 2/2, 3/2, 4/2 and 4/3 seated valves with NG6 or D03 standardized connection diagram. The maximum operation pressure is 5800 psi and the maximum flow 5.28 gpm. The available actuators are solenoid, hydraulic, pneumatic or manual, as well as an ATEX solenoid version for hazardous environments.

About HAWE Hydraulics in North America

Kurt Hydraulics Introduces New Hose Guard For Protecting Hydraulic Hose Used In Rugged Operating Conditions

Lyman, Nebraska: Kurt Hydraulics introduces a complete line of four styles of hose protection products for use with its complete line of hydraulic hose and coupling systems. Designed for use in rugged operating applications to stop premature failure due to wear, abrasion, and deep cuts.

The four styles include:

Spring Wire Guard from Kurt Hydraulics slides over hydraulic hose and protects the hose surface from premature failure due to wear, abrasion and cuts. This heavy duty, corrosion resistant coiled steel wire covering resists hose kinking and distributes bending pressure over the hose length.

Spiral Steel Wrap from Kurt Hydraulics provides the highest level of hydraulic hose protection for the most severe operating conditions. The Spiral Steel Wrap material covers 80 to 100 percent of the hose surface depending on tightness of the application. This galvanized steel wrap provides just enough installation and operational flexibility, yet provides maximum hose surface coverage and protection for the most extreme hydraulic applications.

Nylon Sleeve Guard from Kurt Hydraulics is made of woven Nylon for complete hose coverage. It provides wear and abrasion protection and flexes freely while withstanding thousands of abrasion cycles. Slides over hose for fast, easy installation.

Spiral Poly Wrap from Kurt can be installed over existing, in-place hoses and cables. No need to shut down for installation. Ideal for bundling multiple loose hoses and cables into one neat line. Can enter/exit at any juncture. Sturdy, flexible black elastomer material has protective beveled edges. Provides durable protection while consolidating multiple hoses and cables for a neater, cleaner set of connections.

All four Kurt Hydraulics hose protection products are available as a complete hydraulic hose, coupling and protection system, and are available in full range of diameters and lengths to fit most applications.

In addition to hydraulic hose, Kurt Hydraulics also now offers a full line RoHS compliant hose couplings. With over 35 years experience manufacturing hydraulic products, Kurt has become the preferred alternative source for a complete line of hydraulic hose and couplings. With thousands of stock sizes and configurations manufactured in its U.S. based facilities, Kurt has 95 percent out-of-stock fill rates, competitive pricing and fast delivery.

The patented ADACONN Unified series of flange adapters are now available with integral check valves.

This combination allows one to easily provide check and fixed orifice flow control at a flange port and terminate in a threaded connection. Check function may be placed on a manifold or actuator surface rather than within, resulting in a decrease in manifold size or elimination of a special cartridge body, and reducing the requirements for cartridge cavities and cross-drilling. In-line flow reduces pressure drop and wasted horsepower. Steel construction allows for use in systems up to 5000 PSI. Valve orientation is reversible as required in the application.

bending stress, sudden pressure increases, peak pressures,
vibrations and temperature fluctuations.


•At the tube end, these systems include a flared angle of 10°, and therefore differ from
standard systems.

•Particularly suitable for extreme loading.

•Notching and incision-free tube holding with the 10° flared cone principle.

•Suitable for use with standard coupling bores and connecting pieces.

•Easy assembly, even with thick-walled tubes.

•Elimination of assembly errors, as the flared cone ring must be pre-assembled
in an asembly aid.

•Suitable for stainless steel tubes with tolerances according to DIN 2391-C.

•Complete coupling program in the L and S series.
