The building housed all six of the city&rsquo;s refuse collection and recycling trucks. All of them were destroyed. Scott Broadwell, President of Oberlin&rsquo;s City Council, said it was fortunate that no one was injured in the incident, and leadership for the city of Oberlin acted quickly by renting two trucks to begin waste collection the following Tuesday.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/waste-management/ohio-town-welcomes-first-hydraulic-hybrid-garbage-trucks" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/waste-management/ohio-town-welcomes-first-hydraulic-hybrid-garbage-trucks#comments Accumulators Hydraulic Pumps & Motors Rail, Truck & Bus Waste Management News Mon, 05 Jan 2015 20:02:00 +0000 29951 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Troubleshooting Challenge: Unexpected pressure loss while testing a new hydraulic power unit http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/troubleshooting-challenge-unexpected-pressure-loss-while-testing-new-hydrauli <div class="node-body article-body">In preparing for a retest of a hydraulic power unit experiencing quick pressure drops/rises, the oil was drained from the reservoir and panels removed, only to discover construction debris and beads of excess pipe dope at the bottom of the reservoir.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/troubleshooting-challenge-unexpected-pressure-loss-while-testing-new-hydrauli" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/troubleshooting-challenge-unexpected-pressure-loss-while-testing-new-hydrauli#comments Hydraulic Pumps & Motors Thu, 13 Nov 2014 16:16:00 +0000 29741 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Tried & True Ways of Dealing with Air in Hydraulic Fluid http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/blog/tried-true-ways-dealing-air-hydraulic-fluid <div class="node-body blog-body">Symptoms typical of an aerated hydraulic system plagued the F-104 aircraft for years.
