Hydraulics Powers One-off Chinese Swing Bridge
 
When Chinese engineers built a highway overpass, they could not disrupt the high-speed rail line the roadway would straddle. Instead they built the bridge parallel to the tracks. Once completed, they hoisted the span 15 m (49 ft) onto a pivot and support ring, and hydraulically swung the 17,000-ton assembly 106° in 90 minutes. The ends of the bridge were then permanently mated to the adjoining roadway segments.

Reversing Motor Eschews External Valve
 
Danfoss Power Solutions' Reverse Displacement Motor (RDM) changes direction without using an external directional-control valve. The axial-piston motor uses an integrated proportional shifting valve driven by pilot pressure for smooth, on-the-fly reversing. Claimed benefits include 10% power savings, 15% reduced cost, and lower system pressure losses and complexity.

Drive Powers Multiple Pumps
 
WPT Power Corporation's Power Pump Drive (PPD) installs between a vehicle's engine and power take-off to drive up to eight hydraulic pumps, live or clutched. Self-contained, the PPD needs no external lubrication. The drive mounts to standard SAE flywheel housings and flexible input couplings provide torsional damping.

Environment Dictates Hydraulics Longevity
 
Hydraulics guru Brendan Casey notes in a recent Hydraulics at Work blog critical facts equipment suppliers need to know when supplying a system. The operational environment (ambient temperature range, humidity, contamination levels, altitude, and any hazards) can dictate special design modifications (coolers, heaters, seals, etc.) that may be required to maintain operation and the performance levels specified.

Hydraulic Controls Keep Tree Harvester on the Level
 
Trinder Engineering is using a specialized hydraulic control system to allow its ClimbMAX tree harvester to work on steep slopes. The machine uses heavy construction and revised boom geometry along with complex logic control and sensors — with a hydraulic system designed to function at sharp angles and allow the winch and tracks to work in unison.

Bi-material Seal Accommodates High Pressures, Low Temperatures
 
Freudenberg-NOK Sealing Technologies' HDR-2C groove ring rod seal is made of two distinct polyurethanes — resulting in extrusion stability at high pressure and flexibility down to -50 C (-58 F). The hard polyurethane making up the seal back provides stability under high pressure, while the seal lips use a softer, more flexible material for better dynamic sealing from higher elasticity and low compression set.

Cylinders are Not 'Same Old, Same Old'
 
Technical improvements to hydraulic cylinders have increased service life, lowered cost and weight, and improved performance. These include: environmentally-friendly coatings to resist chemicals and sea water; lightweight alloys and carbon-fiber components; and position sensors that read bar codes on cylinder rods for longer strokes and elimination of dead zones.

Crusher Hydraulics Adjusts 'On-the-Fly'
 
The Terex Finlay C-1550 cone crusher uses electronically-monitored on-the-go hydraulic closed side setting adjustment for operational ease. In addition, a hydraulic tramp relief system protects the chamber if an "un-crushable" object is handled — and then automatically resets itself. A feed-belt metal detector protects the cone from tramp metal, which a purge system then removes.

Seed Tender Uses Self-contained Hydraulics
 
Unverferth Manufacturing's Seed Runner 4955 uses a 15 in. wide cleated belt within a 10 in. diameter steel tube to gently transport seeds from storage for loading. In addition, a self-contained hydraulic pump system powered by a 27 hp gas engine eliminates the need for tying up a tractor power takeoff to load seed.
