Hydraulic systems use liquids to generate power. As they do so extremely efficiently they are well suited for applications requiring heavy movement or lifting.
Hydraulic systems appear in many heavy industrial applications. Typical environments for the operation of hydraulic systems would include:
Not sure if a SFPG hydraulic solution is for you? Then we invite you to take a moment to review the information below on the benefits of a SFPG hydraulic solution.
|SFPG Hydraulic Systems Benefits|
|Constant force||The ability to apply constant, continuous force to an application is unique to hydraulic systems.|
|Heavy Lifting||Hydraulic systems are better suited for dealing with heavy lifting than are pneumatic systems. This is due to the steady pressure obtained with hydraulic systems.|
|High Torque at Low Speeds||Hydraulic motors can generate significant torque at very low speeds.|
|Low weight / High power||Hydraulic motors offer much lighter solutions than electro-mechanical options to produce the same amount of power.|
|Lower Cost||Hydraulic systems typically have lower costs than pneumatic systems due to the fact that pneumatic systems lose energy through heat loss due to air compression.|
|Minimal Power Loss||Hydraulic systems allow for the transmission of power over great distances with minimal power loss.|
|Reliability||Hydraulic systems provide fewer points of failure given the lack of mechanical components using gears, etc.|
|Reverse Direction||Hydraulic systems can reverse direction almost instantaneously. This makes these systems more responsive that electro-mechanical options.|
|Safe||As hydraulic systems produce no sparks, and operate well in high temperatures, they are well suited to hazardous environments.|
