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> <div class="og_rss_groups"></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.

First, because of the nature of their equipment, they never know what strange objects users may throw into it. Second, it is likely that unskilled or uncaring operators will be put in charge of it.
