The hydraulic drive system on your fleet vehicle uses pressurized hydraulic fluid to power your wet kit and or PTO. Hydraulic components experience stresses from high pressures it is important that they be properly installed. It is important to use torque wrenches properly and to apply torque evenly to avoid uneven stresses and prevent leaks.
Large delivery vehicles, flatbed & towing trucks, and trailer rigs are all typically equipped with standard hydraulic systems. Replacing parts correctly in your hydraulic drive system is incredibly important. Using the wrong spec hose could be extremely dangerous to the driver and operating personnel.
Hydraulic Tank: or reservoir, to hold the hydraulic fluid. Each reservoir is quality constructed of high strength polymer, steel, aluminum, or stainless steel.
Hydraulic Pump: This forces the liquid through the system. A hydraulic pump is the source of power of your hydraulic system making it the most critical component. Pumps use an electric motor or other power source to drive the pump. There are a variety of pumps available, vane, piston or gear, and we’ll help find the right one for your fleet vehicle.
Hydraulic Hoses and Valves: Valves control the liquid direction, pressure and flow rate. While the hoses take the fluid where it needs to go. You can use hydraulic valves to switch at a certain pressure or adjust the direction and flow of the fluid.
Actuator: to convert the energy of the liquid into mechanical force or torque. Actuators can either be cylinders which provide linear motion or motors which provide rotary motion.
Just as all the parts that make up your fleet vehicle hydraulic system is important, it’s also important to select the right hydraulic fluid that is compressed and used to power the system. We’ll help you choose a hydraulic fluid that fits your system while weighing the viscosity, viscosity index, oxidation stability and wear resistance. These characteristics will determine how your fluid operates within your system.
