For off-highway vehicles with hydraulic fan-drive systems, this provides better control of cooling-fan speed independent of engine speed. The option eliminates a hose line (no plumbing from the pump to a remote valve) and creates a more-compact solution.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/fan-control-option-hydraulic-piston-pumps" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/fan-control-option-hydraulic-piston-pumps#comments Hydraulic Pumps & Motors Mon, 07 Apr 2014 19:01:00 +0000 26171 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Offline filters http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-filters/offline-filters <div class="node-body article-body"><p><img alt="" src="/site-files/hydraulicspneumatics.com/files/uploads/2014/04/Stauff-Offline-Filters.jpg" style="width: 250px; height: 269px; margin: 5px; float: right;" />Offline filters continuously filter hydraulic and gearbox oil with Radial Micro Filtration. A combined motor/pump unit draws the oil through the filter and pumps clean oil back into the system. The filters remove particles as small as 0.5 &micro;m, reducing repairs and downtime. The units can work even when the main system is not in use.
