I’m more than happy to order this hydraulic power pack with you, as the other five have been perfect for their various applications. Could I please have it under the order number “4041”.
The quote above came in from an existing customer earlier today; they’re materials testing technology specialists where precision and consistency count for everything.
Capable of operating continuously and equipped to withstand the toughest of working environments, a hydraulic power pack is considered the “backbone” of any hydraulic system. A typical hydraulic power unit will comprise a: hydraulic motor, reservoir, pump and coolers (to keep the fluid at a safe working temperature), and can produce a huge amount of power to drive most hydraulic cylinders.
A hydraulic power pack can be used in a diverse range of applications…
From farming and fishing, harvesting crops and the latest catch, to food and drinks production (and all the packaging), through to waste disposal and refuse lorries, power generation, compacting and recycling waste. Just to prove the point…
A key production plant to the brewery industry asked Hydraulics Online to re-design and supply a more efficient unit within 3 days, as a major production line was down.
Within 2 hours of receiving the call one of our hydraulic engineers attended site and specified a complete, new and more efficient and powerful hydraulic power pack. The customer raised their purchase order there and then. The system was built, tested and installed within 72 hours; downtime and lost production was therefore kept to a minimum. Within a further 48 hours all lost production had been recovered with orders then being produced ahead of schedule due to the greater efficiency delivered by the hydraulic power pack.
So, from beer to university students… or rather a request from Edinburgh University for our technical team to provide them with a hydraulic solution (as a concrete testing machine) for destruction tests within the construction industry. No problem. Hydraulics Online specified, designed and built a suitable high-pressure system including actuators which was then supplied to the customer within tight time and budget constraints.
As a final example, Hydraulics Online were approached by an alternative energy power company after their previous hydraulic supplier had failed to meet expectations. The customer supplied outline requirements and asked Hydraulics Online to propose a brand new hydraulic power pack and system.
A bespoke unit was duly designed and built with many modifications to the original, inherited specification; this resulted in a much more stable and controllable system which was far more suitable to the application.
If you’re looking for a standard hydraulic power pack, then you may like to know that we’re an authorised distributor for UK-based Fluidlink Hydraulics…
Originally a distributor themselves for the Smiths Industries Hydraulics company, Fluidlink have now been producing their their own high quality, yet cost-effective, hydraulic power packs since 1993. Their 12v or 24v hydraulic power pack range, includes the Smiths Industries power pack designs, is available in AC and DC and with three different versions of body and tank to choose from means that a unit can be readily customised – despite the fact that we refer to it as “standard”.
The image at the top of this page page shows a handful of the hydraulic power packs and systems that we have supplied in the past. You can view these in more detail within our power pack album on Facebook and there are plenty more examples scattered throughout our library of cases studies and testimonials.
In the meantime, we’ll leave you with these words from a leading designer and manufacturer of customised specialist vehicles and exhibition units used in: film and TV production, music festivals, live sports events and promotional roadshows:
That <hydraulic power pack> was spot on. Thanks for all your help, it’s great knowing we have someone like you supporting us on these types of vehicles.
