    Leave a Comment

    Due to the changing market conditions, HYDAC is transitioning the BD product line back
    to yellow beads. HYDAC is always interested in new ways to meet customer expectations
    and reduce our dependence on one region of the world.

    The transition change will begin to take effect in May 2021, and is a part of our Good
    Better Best portfolio to be released in July.

    Small Size – Big Performance

    HYDAC is pleased to announce the introduction of the RFB Compact Series filter – the newest member of the HYDAC Air-X return line filter series.

    Appropriate for small to medium flow rates, the filter will be sold in five sizes ranging from 45 – 260 lpm. The flow of the filter is inward to outward in a design that is optimized for performance. Additionally, this optimized flow enables reservoir tanks and the fluid inside them, to be reduced in size/volume by as much as 35%. Standard equipment on the filter includes:

    • Integrated lid, including bypass valve
    • Patented bayonet connection between the element and the lid
    • Outlet via diffuser
    • Anti-drain valve is included in the element

    Colton Lenz, Product Manager for HYDAC commented, “The addition of the RFB to our our product line is a true win-win for our customers. Not only do they get “big filter” performance in a smaller package, it’s very likely they’ll be able to downsize their reservoir as well with zero compromise in performance. We see this as a potential game-changer in agricultural, construction and material handling applications.”

    Leave a Comment

    Our new quad-certified accumulators will meet the pressure vessel requirements of the United States, Canada, Australia, and the European Union.

    • Certification Cost Saving – No additional certifications fees are added to the
      accumulator cost for the Quad-Certified unit.
    • Inventory Control – One part number to order instead of four. Instead of buying
      four individual accumulators you now only need one. But if you only need just
      one certification, we can fill that requirement as well.
    • Short Lead Times – Delivery out of our Bethlehem and Houston facilities is 2-4
      weeks. You no longer need to wait for delivery lead times of 14-16 weeks from
    • and more

    Leave a Comment

    Automatically recharge accumulators with the DL10-01 valve. This valve has a 20% reset threshold and is adjustable up to 3300 psi. The WV08DF ‘low side’ shuttle valve locks pressure in fully charged accumulators while directing oil to the lower pressure side.

    Features and Benefits

    • Increase machine safety with the leaktight pressure isolation capability of the WV08DF
    • Optimize machine efficiency by unloading the pump when the accumulator system is fully charged
    • Both safety and efficiency is improved without the need for additional or complex electronics
    • Suitable for use with conventional hydraulic fluids (not brake fluids)

    Leave a Comment

    HYDAC is pleased to announce the introduction of the LM06W series of manually operated poppet valves. The series has a number of benefits to the user, which include:

    • Push to operate, spring return
    • Normally closed poppet valve
    • Leak tight even at high pressures
    • Robust simple operation
    • Use for emergency pilot apply/release for safe equipment operation

    Gordon Dow, Design Engineering Manager at HYDAC’s Hydraulic Division in Glendale Heights, IL commented, “A simple manually operated poppet valve, yes, but the beauty of it is the ultra compact footprint. Our customers can install these valves almost anywhere, thereby increasing the presence of emergency flow stops and starts for a safer overall operation. In addition, the valve is affordable and; as it’s made right here in Glendale Heights, available.”
