What are Hydraulic Power Packs used for?

Fundamentally, Hydraulic Power Packs are used in place of an integrated power supply for hydraulic machinery and are self-contained units. They are essential in a range of different situations, particularly for industrial work that takes place outdoors and away from any larger scale, integrated hydraulic system.


Advantages of Hydraulic Power Packs

  • They are an efficient transmitter of power. It is easy to control the power transmitted as they have simple levers, push buttons that make it easy to start/stop or accelerate/decelerate as and when required.
  • They can cope with a large weight range. Hydraulic power packs are made without gears, pulleys or levers, which allows it to easily cope with a vast range of weight.
  • Maintenance is simpler as there are less moving parts as compared to mechanical systems. There are also fewer leak points, which makes them more economical, safer and simpler systems.
  • Lower wastage of power since the power transmitted is controlled by simple buttons and levers.
  • They are compact in design, which make them ideal for places where the large sources of power are required, but only limited space is available for a power source.
  • Hydraulic systems are safe to use in chemical plants and mines because they do not cause sparks.
