vfd190_prHydraulic engineers in need of an in-line flow control valve to regulate motor or cylinder speed on construction and agricultural machinery applications need look no further than Webtec’s new high-pressure VFD190 series, launching at Hillhead 2014, which brings Webtec’s range of hydraulic flow control valves to over 800 models and counting.

NEW PRODUCT RELEASE – New hydraulic valve range delivers 66% higher capability at half the running cost

vfd190Hydraulic engineers in need of an in-line flow control valve to regulate motor or cylinder speed on construction and agricultural machinery applications need look no further than Webtec’s new high-pressure VFD190 series, launching at Hillhead 2014, which brings Webtec’s range of hydraulic flow control valves to over 800 models and counting.

The new range has both a 66% higher operating pressure and maximum inlet flow capability than the existing Webtec 2FV series, but due to its larger one-inch port size and highly optimised mechanical design has a substantially reduced pressure drop, meaning heat generation can be cut in half resulting in significantly lower fuel consumption.

Aimed at applications such as controlling the speed of operation of hydraulic hammers, crushers, screeners, spreaders and conveyors this three-port variable priority flow divider is nearly immune to rapid changes in load, with adaptive pressure compensation enabling both the regulated and by-pass flows to be used to drive separate circuits.

The VFD190 has a single turn knob to smoothly control the flow even under full pressure and is rated up to 190 lpm (50 gpm) inlet flow, at pressures up to 420 bar (6000 psi) and comes in 5 sizes with both BSPP and SAE ports available -

How to produce a professional hydraulic pump or valve test certificate, at the touch of a button

The C2000 is a third generation solution for displaying, logging and reporting hydraulic test information and providing professional test certificates. Aimed specifically at industrial test stands, the C2000’s rugged design and simple user interface is ideal for customers testing new or re-built hydraulic pumps and valves and is quick to produce a professional hydraulic test certificate at the touch of a button.

Earlier in the year, Webtec saw the result of an engineering department led project to install the latest version of our in-house designed C2000 hydraulic data acquisition solution on Webtec’s three UK flow calibration test stands and one test stand in the US. This upgrade allows us to quickly calibrate hundreds of different flow measurement products to exactly the same standard, re-call past test results from anywhere in the world and strengthens Webtec’s commitment to providing world-class service to customers worldwide.

Version 20 of the C2000 software is due to be released in June 2014.

 

 

What are the 5 basic requirements you need to know when diagnosing a fault in a hydraulic circuit?

We all know that a hydraulic failure is bad news. Downtime is often very expensive and getting replacement parts in a hurry is stressful and never cheap. While preventing a fault from occurring in the first place would be the best solution, what do you do if a hydraulic fault occurs and how can you diagnose the fault quickly?

This training video by the National Fluid Power Training Centre (NFPC) is available on Webtec’s YouTube channel and outlines the “5 basic requirements” that you need to know if you are responsible for diagnosing a hydraulic fault and you want to get the job done successfully and done quickly.

Thank you to everyone who came to visit our stand at IFPE/ConExpo. It proved to be a fantastic meeting place with some great feedback on both the new VFD190 flow control range and also our prototype DHM portable hydraulic tester with iPhone/iPad App.

During the week, all visitors had the opportunity to try their hand in our Las Vegas themed lucky draw, with a range of prizes available. Congratulations to Heber Tohom from Soluciones Hidraulicas for winning the first prize of an iPad.
