Hydraulic motors

Another case study example saw Hydrotechnik design and custom-build a hydraulic testing rig for KPEC capable of testing the efficiency of a wide range of hydraulic motors commonly fitted onto forklifts and other hydraulic machinery. Having built up a loyal customer base over the past 20 years repairing and re-selling motors, KPEC wanted to improve its testing facilities. The company required its motors to go through extensive testing under specific conditions to understand the performance of the refurbished motor.

KPEC wanted a user-operated testing system with variable flows up to 100 litres per minute at a maximum settable pressure of 300 bar with a torque load of up to 1100Nm. During the test the user needs to be able to control the direction (both clockwise or anti-clockwise) flow rate, loading pressure, temperature and system pressure. On top of this, the user needs to be able to read displays on the control panel in real time.

A variety of pump accessories were supplied from UK Flowtechnik such as bellhousings, damping elements, foot brackets to improve the noise levels, oil cooler to keep systems running smoothly and spider couplings all helping to sustain the life of the pump and test piece.

So, Hydrotechnik is an excellent example of a UK business that has diversified, not in its product offering, but in its reach across its value chain.
