Quick, safe and accurate control of heavy loads in motion

28 August, 2015

SPX Power Team has developed a PLC synchronised lifting and lowering Motion Control System (MCS) to reduce the risk of bending, twisting or tilting when lifting heavy loads in motion. When a large object is moved, stresses are placed on the object due to uneven weight distribution or load-shifts between the lift points. If the mover is not careful, the object can bend or twist creating a stress riser that can cause hundreds of thousands - or in the worst cases - millions of dollars in damage.


Tube connection system for extreme conditions

28 August, 2015

The multi-part steel flare fittings are part of the Stauff Connect range which was developed for the detachable connection of tubes. They consist of fitting bodies, cone adapters with O-rings, support sleeves and union nuts and they are suitable for all common metric outer tube diameters from 6 to 42 mm.


Enerpac hydraulic cylinder lifting accuracy enables Pioneering Spirit fast lift

28 August, 2015

Enerpac has supplied the high pressure, hydraulic cylinder technology for the topsides lift system beams on Allseas ‘Pioneering Spirit’ vessel. The cylinders are an integral part of the vessel’s lift system, enabling the installation and decommissioning of complete topsides weighing up to 48,000 tonnes.


Clean-break coupling makes connection easier

28 August, 2015

Stäubli has introduced a new range of clean break, flat face, connectors that are claimed to be suitable for all fluids, fully compatible with the well-known SCB range but much easier to connect.


Vending solution affords major savings for Flowplant

28 August, 2015

UK distributor of industrial maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) products and services, Brammer, has helped Flowplant save 60 per cent on its consumable spend through industrial vending solution, Invend.


UK hydraulics firm ensures the Show Goes On for Royal Shakespeare Company

21 August, 2015

A UK hydraulics firm pulled off a stellar performance to arrange manufacture and delivery of a range of hydraulic cylinder components in a short space of time, for the opening night of a new performance at The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC).


Newly extended Moduflex valve system

21 August, 2015

Parker has introduced its newly extended Moduflex valve system, a range of valves designed to conform to any application requirements. Available configured from basic components or as a pre-assembled and tested valve island, the valve system can be adapted simply once specified.


Electro-hydraulic actuators deliver improved safety at India’s tank farms

21 August, 2015

Following an accidental fire at the IOCL Jaipur Terminal, an extensive review of safety measures recommended by the MB Lal Committee has resulted in the introduction of failsafe actuators for critical tank farm applications. These valves, known as ROSOV (Remote Operated Shut-off Valves), now provide tank overfill protection at the majority of storage facilities owned by the Indian oil industry.


Top ten tips – oil analysis

21 August, 2015

With between 70 and 80 per cent of all hydraulic failures caused by contaminated oil, effective analysis is vital to ensuring the healthy functioning of machinery. Bosch Rexroth outlines its top ten tips for maintaining oil quality.
