The parts line &mdash; mounting brackets (MB), height adjusters (HA), suction-cup rod extensions (SE), and level compensators (LC) &mdash; is designed to fit together for different sizes and applications. Steel MBs can be adjusted horizontally and lock against an extruded profile with two included screws. HAs have an internal air channel and a long outer thread that adjusts the vertical position of the suction cup.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/products/end-arm-tooling-mounts" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/products/end-arm-tooling-mounts#comments Products Reservoirs & Accessories Thu, 11 Jul 2013 17:56:00 +0000 22441 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Separator keeps air out of braking systems http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/reservoirs-amp-accessories/separator-keeps-air-out-braking-systems <div class="node-body article-body"><p> Air or other gases entrapped in hydraulic circuits can cause erratic operation and lead to the formation of foam &mdash; which can be especially dangerous in braking systems. In a search for a reliable method to ensure that air would not get into the energy-assisted braking system of its machines, a manufacturer of mobile agricultural equipment found just that. <img alt="" src="/site-files/hydraulicspneumatics.com/files/uploads/2013/06/brakingsystem.png" style="width: 280px; height: 199px; margin: 5px; float: right;" /></p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/reservoirs-amp-accessories/separator-keeps-air-out-braking-systems" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/reservoirs-amp-accessories/separator-keeps-air-out-braking-systems#comments Reservoirs & Accessories Thu, 13 Jun 2013 18:22:00 +0000 21791 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com How leak-free shock absorbers work http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/reservoirs-amp-accessories/how-leak-free-shock-absorbers-work <div class="field-byline"> Alexis Coffey </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p> Cushioneer shock absorbers, from Deschner Corp., Santa Ana, Calif., use a rolling diaphragm seal that makes the units leak free and allows the plunger rod to operate without friction.

A rubber bumper, a compression spring, or a dashpot all can accomplish this by absorbing energy. The bumper and spring store energy and release it after they are compressed, resulting in a rebound. A dashpot is a fluid-filled cylinder with an opening through which fluid may escape at a controlled flow. Any force acting against the piston in the cylinder encounters high resistance from the fluid at the beginning of the stroke, then much less as the piston retracts.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/reservoirs-amp-accessories/avoid-shock-system" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/reservoirs-amp-accessories/avoid-shock-system#comments Reservoirs & Accessories Mon, 10 Jun 2013 16:36:00 +0000 21531 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com
