The future of hydraulics
Environmentally Friendly, Efficient and Safe
Water hydraulic technologies have rapidly evolved to become viable and attractive solutions to many fluid power applications. The inherent cleanliness of water allows it to be used in many applications where hydraulic oil is undesirable.
Components are constructed using high-grade stainless steel and ceramics, and are completely oil-free. These materials make water hydraulics systems especially attractive in high corrosive environments.
Operating in similar pressure ranges to conventional hydraulics, water systems can offer greater
efficiencies, reducing operational costs and minimising component size. Systems can operate using
tap water, salt water, water-glycol and many other low viscous fluids.
Located in Western Australia, Water Hydraulics is the national source for water hydraulic components.
Water is the primary medium for Water Hydraulics Systems and is inherently natural. The systems can run on tap Water, Salt Water and various other low viscous mediums making it the ideal solution for applications where oil contamination possesses environmental risks
Systems operating in high fire risk areas often require expensive specialised fluids for operation due to the flammable nature of standard hydraulic oils. As well as the higher operational costs of the oil, these fluids are often toxic. Using water as a medium eliminates this risk offering a much more manageable solution.
Low Operational and Disposal Costs
Apart from the initial savings in the use of water, disposal costs are also a major advantage of using Water Hydraulics systems
Individual components offer the same, and in some cases, improved efficiency when compared to a similar oil hydraulics component. The almost incompressible nature of water allows higher transmission efficiencies which reduces the size of both components and plumbing.
