We have recently added a Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU) for use with various water glycol fluids containing up to 95% water to our fleet of Delta manufactured and engineered HPUs. The unit is designed for operating hydraulic tooling in environments requiring eco-friendly fluid power using water based or low viscosity fluids.
Water glycol is an ecologically safe, biodegradable hydraulic fluid which is fire resistant and non-toxic. Unlike oil based fluids, water glycol fluids are environmentally safe for subsea and topside operations. This unit is designed to meet the unique needs of the offshore and subsea industry as well as industries needing a clean, fire-resistant hydraulic fluid such as the mining industry.
Water based hydraulic systems are non-toxic and biodegradable. The unit is equipped with a stainless steel fixed displacement pump. The single fluid pump eliminates the potential for cross-fluid contamination required for secondary oil for lubrication as well as the need for a lubrication circuit or regular maintenance using lubricating oil. The pump operates at pressures up to 8,000 PSI delivering flows up to 8.1 U.S. GPM at 1800 RPM.
