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> <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 New Gear Pump Design Keeps Compactor Quiet http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-amp-motors/new-gear-pump-design-keeps-compactor-quiet <div class="field-byline"> Edited by Alan L. Hitchcox, Editor </div> <div class="field-deck"> A quiet external gear pump protects the operator and the surroundings. </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p> Along with increased industrialization and automation comes greater noise load both on operators and anyone within range. According to calculations by the German Federal Environment Agency around 16% of the population is subjected to continuous noise levels of more than 65 dB<sub>A</sub> per day from vehicle traffic alone &mdash; with additional noise sources to boot. The most recent findings point to increased risk of heart and circulatory system disease from continuously exceeding this noise level. EU directives have accordingly specified noise limit values.</p></div> <p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-amp-motors/new-gear-pump-design-keeps-compactor-quiet" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-pumps-amp-motors/new-gear-pump-design-keeps-compactor-quiet#comments Hydraulic Pumps & Motors Waste Management Mon, 09 Sep 2013 19:34:00 +0000 23041 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Making tough hydraulics even tougher http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/waste-management/making-tough-hydraulics-even-tougher <div class="node-body article-body"><p> &nbsp;</p> <p style="margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; line-height: 12.0px; font: 26.0px 'Minion Pro'; color: #f0724f"> Hydraulic systems are expected to perform in environments that would quickly render other forms of power transmission inoperable.
