Hydraulic Cylinders with a Variety of Sealing Systems Available from Bosch Rexroth...>>

Polyurethane, NBR, PTFE and fluorocarbon among options for sealing systems covering machine tool, automotive, plastics machinery and other applications.

The Bosch Rexroth CDT1 and CDT4 series of NFPA tie-rod hydraulic cylinders come with options for sealing systems including fluorocarbon, NBR, PTFE, and wear-resistant polyurethane seals.

Designed for applications such as machine tool, automotive, press, plastics machinery, civil engineering, material handling and wood / paper equipment, the CDT4 series operates at a nominal pressure rating up to 3,000 psi. The CDT1 nominal rating is 1,500 psi, depending on bore size.

The cylinders feature a single removable extra-long bearing made of ductile iron for longer service life. Reduced guide clearance provides uniform load distribution while a spiral groove in the rod bearing keeps it lubricated and compensates for pressure change.

Rexroth uses a case-hardened chrome-plated piston rod to extend seal life and lower susceptibility to damage. Seal extrusion and tube seal leakage is eliminated by precisely centering the tube to the head end cap.

The piston is mechanically secured to the rod to avoid piston / rod separation. High-tensile steel tie rods with rolled threads add strength and corrosion resistance.

The CDT cylinders contain an ISO 11926-1 SAE straight thread connection port and patented air bleed secured against unscrewing. Piston rod diameters range from inch to 5 inches on the on the CDT1 Series, and from 5/8 inch to 5 inches on the CDT4 Series. Bore diameters range from 1 inch to 8 inches, while stroke lengths are available up to 120 inches.

We Call It a Lift Valve You Can Call It a Real Convenience!...>>

What It Is . . .

This Lift Valve combines four functions in one body.

Itts a Relief Valve, a Check Valve, a Flow Control Valve, and a Solenoid Directional Control Valve all integrated into a complete circuit!

Builders of Lift Machinery or machinery otherwise operating a Single-Acting Cylinder find this valve particularly useful.

How It Works . . .

Pressurized oil will flow directly to the cylinder in the Normally Closed version to extend it. (The relief valve protects the system from over-pressurization.) When the solenoid is actuated, oil from the pump and cylinder is routed to tank, allowing the single-acting cylinder to retract at the speed set by the meter-out flow control valve. De-activating the solenoid will again extend the cylinder.

The Normally Open circuit works in reverse, with the cylinder extending when the solenoid is actuated, and retracting when de-actuated.

Specifications . . .

This useful valve handles flows to 5.3 GPM and pressures to 3,000 PSI. Check out the rest of the features on the catalog page:

Eatons Hydraulics Operations' Re-Designed 420 Series Pumps

Eatons Hydraulics Operations' Re-Designed 420 Series Pumps Feature Hydro-Mechanical Torque Control And Low-Noise Operation

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation has added a hydro-mechanical torque control option and several performance upgrades to its successful 420 Series product line. The new 420 HM pumps with hydro-mechanical torque control are intended for moderate-flow, high-pressure mobile applications on vehicles such as compact wheel loaders, telehandlers, rough terrain forklifts, telescopic booms, sweepers, backhoe
loaders, and garbage trucks.

With a maximum pressure rating of 280 bar, 420 Series pumps offer outstanding power density delivering up to 118 hp at 3,000 rpm. Standard control options include pressure
compensation and load sensing pressure and flow compensation.

The new power/torque control works in parallel with the standard compensator using a
special mechanism to replace the control piston. The effect is to limit power consumption by
the pump while providing maximum flow at a pressure equal to the desired power level. The
system provides maximum pressure at reduced flow, and avoids a corner horsepower point.

420 Series pumps have been extensively re-engineered to reduce noise levels (76 dBA at
1,800 rpm and 207 bar) while improving reliability and operating efficiency. The compensator
has been changed to reduce an infrequent system-induced noise.

The housing has been extensively re-designed to decrease airborne noise while allowing
more options than the previous configuration. A case to inlet check valve has been added to
improve cold weather operation and limit case pressure spikes to protect seals and the
rotating group. As a result, 420 Series pumps have fewer parts, fewer bolts, and fewer leak
joints than previous models, and use highly reliable O-ring seals throughout.
