Officials have wrestled with many different potential solutions to traffic congestion on the bridge, but none were implemented because Northern Californians are unwilling to see the beauty of their historic landmark desecrated. Even if a solution could be implemented, costs would likely be excessive. </p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/construction/hydraulics-zips-along-golden-gate-bridge" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/construction/hydraulics-zips-along-golden-gate-bridge#comments Construction News Fri, 17 Apr 2015 14:18:00 +0000 32021 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Electronic Hose Monitor Looks for Leaks http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hose-tubing/electronic-hose-monitor-looks-leaks <div class="node-body article-body">Designed to check for ruptures in hoses, the SKF Hose Connection Control (HCC) monitors lubrication and hydraulic lines on construction equipment. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hose-tubing/electronic-hose-monitor-looks-leaks" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hose-tubing/electronic-hose-monitor-looks-leaks#comments Construction Controls & Instrumentation Hose & Tubing Thu, 12 Mar 2015 19:26:00 +0000 31441 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Gentlemen, Stop Your Engines! http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-motors/gentlemen-stop-your-engines <div class="field-byline"> Artur Gabriel, Atlas Weyhausen </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Automatic start-stop systems conserve fuel by shutting off the engine when it’s not needed.
