Those who consider themselves “mechanically inclined” often struggle with understanding of electrical concepts.

Even though pressure transducers, flow meters, and temperature sensors may not be required for routine operation of a machine, portable diagnostic instruments monitor these parameters to determine a hydraulic system&rsquo;s condition. But even regular monitoring of pressure, flow, and temperature can miss sensitive fluid conditions, such as particulate contamination, oxidation, water infiltration, and additive depletion.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/technologies/serv-clip-device-taps-hydraulic-lines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/technologies/serv-clip-device-taps-hydraulic-lines#comments Technologies Controls & Instrumentation Hydraulic Pumps & Motors Wed, 16 Apr 2014 15:17:00 +0000 26341 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com A Logical Choice for Relief Valves http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/technologies/logical-choice-relief-valves <div class="field-deck"> Logic element technology can boost the flow (and pressure) capability of electroproportional relief valve circuits. </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Effective use of logic elements is a key to designing cost-effective circuits and is limited only by the designer’s imagination.

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 WasteExpo 2014: Waste not, want not http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/wasteexpo-2014-waste-not-want-not <div class="field-byline"> Alexis Coffey </div> <div class="node-body article-body">WasteExpo 2014 is the place where more than 550 suppliers in the solid-waste and recycling industry gather to introduce the latest equipment and technology. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/wasteexpo-2014-waste-not-want-not" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/wasteexpo-2014-waste-not-want-not#comments Hydraulic Pumps & Motors Fri, 04 Apr 2014 18:40:00 +0000 26071 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Webtec Marks 50 Years http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/webtec-marks-50-years <div class="node-body article-body">Webtec marks 50 years with ‘Golden’ hydraulic tester 2014 is a special year for Webtec as it is 50 years since the company was founded as a joint venture between Webster Electric and Applied Power in 1964. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/webtec-marks-50-years" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/webtec-marks-50-years#comments Hydraulic Pumps & Motors Hydraulic Valves Tue, 01 Apr 2014 18:49:00 +0000 26001 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com New Mobile Impact Crusher Depends on Hydraulic Success http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-amp-motors/new-mobile-impact-crusher-depends-hydraulic-success <div class="field-byline"> Matthieu Guilbert, Business Development Manager, Parker Hannifin Corp., Hydraulic Pump Div. </div> <div class="field-deck"> Combining an electric motor with four identical hydraulic pumps in a hybrid design reduces a rock crusher’s fuel consumption and noise generation, without sacrificing performance. </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p><img alt="" src="/site-files/hydraulicspneumatics.com/files/uploads/2014/03/Lead-photo.gif" style="width: 500px; height: 513px; margin: 5px; float: left;" title="The design of the R1100DE machine runs a diesel engine at nearly constant, optimal speed to drive the generator for the electric motor.
