C., offers an energy-saving alternative to conventional fixed-speed hydraulic power units (HPUs) using variable-displacement pumps. Instead, the industrial HPU drives a fixed-displacement pump at variable speed. This technique drives the pump at the speed necessary to provide the required flow up to 20 lpm &ndash; all while maintaining a constant pressure for clamping or other functions.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/vfds-help-hpus-be-more-efficient" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/vfds-help-hpus-be-more-efficient#comments Controls & Instrumentation Fri, 15 Aug 2014 16:39:00 +0000 28321 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Sensor Sets the Table in Simplicity http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/controls-instrumentation/sensor-sets-table-simplicity <div class="node-body article-body"><p><strong>Sensor sets the table in simplicity</strong></p> <p>Whenever you&rsquo;ve eaten at a restaurant, cafeteria, or anywhere else outside the home, you were most likely served by products from The Vollrath Co.
