MXT-XTP Hydraulic hose

MXT-XTP is a hydraulic hose that combines patented wire braid technology that makes it lighter weight and more flexible while maintaining 600,000 impulse cycle performance, which is three times the industry standard. The abrasion and ozone resistance XtraTuff cover provides additional protection for the hose to stand up to the toughest of applications. Ozone is everywhere and impacting hose performance, so having a robust cover material to prevent hose breakdown and keep machine uptime high is of great benefit. MXT-XTP joins the Gates lineup of other industry leading products that include MXG4K-XTP and Multi Master GMV.

VariBlast Precision Safety Air Gun

EXAIR’s VariBlast Precision Safety Air Gun with Nano Super Air Nozzle provides a focused blast of air capable of handling tough jobs with remarkable strength. This CE compliant lightweight air gun employs an engineered variable-flow trigger able to produce variable force upon a target simply by pulling the trigger. The Nano Super Air Nozzle requires only 8.3 SCFM and is made of Type 316SS or PEEK thermoplastic. The air gun body is made of high-impact polyacetal. The airflow that exits the nozzle can’t be blocked, assuring safe operation with a quiet 75 dBA noise level, well below OSHA limits.

1/2 NPT FullStream Liquid Atomizing Spray Nozzle

EXAIR’s 1/2-NPT FullStream Liquid Atomizing Spray Nozzle provides a full cone spray pattern for pressurized liquids. This inexpensive and versatile nozzle offers the ideal solution for cooling, cleaning, washing, rinsing and dust suppression. With a vaneless, tangential flow design, the FullStream has wide open internal features to resist clogging while simultaneously producing uniform distribution in a round pattern with medium to large droplets. The compact right-angle design operates at up to 250 PSIG liquid pressure, and functions seamlessly with liquids containing particulate. Type 303 stainless steel construction provides durability and corrosion resistance, with operating temperatures up to 800°F (427°C).

SLV20 Load-Sensing Proportional Directional Valve

Eaton’s SLV20 load-sensing proportional valve is a priority flow-sharing solution for mini and micro machinery. Utilizing screw-in cartridge valves in aluminum sections, the SLV20 offers greater versatility and serviceability than cast iron valves, plus significant weight and space savings. A patent-pending multi-function logic element enables flow sharing and flow prioritization in the same valve bank, a feature previously available only on heavy traditional valves. Individual sections can be produced with additional functions, such as counterbalance valves, replacing remotely mounted ancillary valves. By reducing machine weight and providing flexible flow-control options, the SLV20 can increase efficiency, load-carrying capability and battery life.



Cartridge Flow Transmitter  (CFT)

DGD Fluid Power enters the hydraulic market with the CFT (Cartridge Flow Transmitter) with multiple output options provides a convenient digital solution to measure flows in hydraulic systems. The flow transmitter can be easily installed anywhere in the hydraulic circuit for continuous monitoring of all critical hydraulic functions—e.g., component performance, diagnostics, closed loop control and data acquisition for predictive maintenance and remote troubleshooting. Future models to be released include pressure and temperature sensors, combined with the CFT in a cartridge valve format.
