Hydreco controls the flow with new valves range

After manufacturing Power Take-Off units under the Powauto brand for more than 60 years, Hydreco is now releasing a new range of hydraulic valves for tipping, flow diversion and pressure relief.

Hydraulic technology specialist, Hydreco, now has three styles of air operated tipping valves that includes the single spool 87 series valve which has the capability for two-speed lowering and adjustable relief pressure settings between 70 and 210 bar.

Also new is the 105 series – a single spool tipping valve which can be set with two pressure relief valves for use where a prime mover may be connected to different types of trailers including tippers, walking floors and live bottom trailers. This valve is complemented by the 210 series dual spool valve which is ideal for truck and dog combinations. Both the 105 and 210 series valves can also be fitted with optional pressure switches for use with body up alarms or other applications as required.

Another new addition to Hydreco’s product portfolio is the 89 series diverter valve. This valve is ideal for use in applications such as truck and dog, B-double, and side tipper road trains. This valve has a 6000psi working pressure and can be operated either by air, cable, or can be manually controlled.

Rounding out the range of new valves is the 25 series three-port inline pressure relief valve. This valve has an option of being either single or dual pressure with a range between 70 and 280 bar. The 25 series valve has an aluminium housing to reduce weight and is ideal for fitting to a prime mover when the hydraulic control valves are fitted to the trailer and the circuit requires protection from being over pressurised.

All Hydreco Power Take-Off units (PTOs), gear pumps and valves are designed and engineered in Australia – manufactured by Hydreco under ISO9001 standards to endure the harshest conditions from mine sites in some of the toughest areas in the world to construction sites and agricultural applications where reliability is paramount.
Hydreco’s ancillary range of hoists, tanks, controls, and piston pumps are sourced from some of the world’s leading manufacturers; the business is proud to associate the Hydreco name with these brands.

Fast Fact
Hydreco relies on local engineering resources to design products that are fit for purpose under demanding Australian conditions. The company, which used to only concentrate on truck hydraulic solutions, now also covers all trailer requirements, too.
