Aluminized steel hydraulic oil reservoirs and fuel tanks for off-road and specialty vehicles used in agricultural, construction, and other utility equipment combine corrosion resistance of aluminum with structural strength (and lower cost) of steel.
Analogies exist between hydraulic flow and electrical flow, and the molecules of fluid in a hydraulic circuit behave much like the electrons in an electrical circuit. Let’s examine analogies between pressure and voltage and between ground and the hydraulic reservoir....More

The IFH Group Inc., Rock Falls, Ill., a metal fabricator and manufacturer of hydraulic oil reservoirs and custom fuel tanks, has completed its second major expansion, increasing its space from 106,000 to more than 121,000 ft2 under one roof. ...More
Desiccant filter breathers are being used more and more to trap moisture before it gets into a hydraulic reservoir. Although effective, they do not necessarily offer a permanent solution. That’s because the desiccant eventually becomes spent, and unless the desiccant or the entire unit is replaced, moisture will again be drawn into the reservoir....More
Custom hydraulic reservoirs and fuel tanks are available in capacities from 1 to more than 300 gal. They are manufactured in a range of materials, including carbon or stainless steel, aluminum, or aluminized steel (a blend of sheet steel hot-dip-coated with an aluminum-silicon alloy to resist corrosion). Aluminized steel reservoirs resist virtually all petroleum-based and synthetic fluids while providing protection from atmospheric corrosion....More
The Cyclone reservoir has a cylindrical shape, and was originally developed and patented for use in hydraulic fan drives for mobile equipment by Price Engineering, Hartland, Wis. Now available for general application, officials at Price Engineering say the Cyclone reservoir reduces fluid volume and associated costs up to 95%.
The dramatically smaller size makes space available for mounting other components in a machine. It also reduces weight and is more environmentally friendly because less fluid is needed in the hydraulic system....More
Hydraulic fluid reservoirs Custom hydraulic oil tanks for off-road and specialty vehicles range in standard capacities of 1 to 300+ gal, and are manufactured from steel, stainless steel, aluminum, or aluminized steel (a blend of mild sheet ......More
