    Frequently Asked Questions


    What is a hydraulic power pack, and how does it work?

    A hydraulic power pack is a combination of: a prime mover/pump drive, hydraulic pump, reservoir and hydraulic controls to supply power to a hydraulic system. Hydraulic power packs are purposely designed to complete several operations with different forces and speeds. A hydraulic power unit (HPU) produces flow and pressure which enables it to drive hydraulic motors, hydraulic cylinders, and other corresponding components of a hydraulic system, either rotary or linear.

    What types of hydraulic power pack can you supply?

    We supply a vast range including:

    • Electric hydraulic power packs

    • 12 volt DC, 24 volt DC, 110 volt AC, 240 volt AC and 415v AC hydraulic power packs

    • Hydraulic power packs – driven by petrol or diesel engine

    Can you supply ATEX-certified hydraulic power pack for explosive environments?

    We can provide certified, explosion-proof, intrinsically safe, hydraulic power packs, equipment and components that are compliant with the standards of the European ATEX directive. Read more here >>>

    What needs to be considered in a hydraulic power pack specfication?

    There are a number of factors that influence hydraulic power design including: the environment that the power unit will be used in and the application itself, type of prime mover, the forces and speeds required and the duty cycle. We can work through all of this with you to determine the right specification to meet your particular requirements.

    Other Frequently Asked Questions

    How do you calculate hydraulic power pack performance and capacity?

    A number of factors influence a hydraulic power unit’s performance including pressure, flow (speed), power capacity available, and reservoir volume. Physical characteristics, including size, power supply, and pump flow and pressure are also important considerations.

    Do you do hydraulic power pack repairs?

    In many cases well-repaired hydraulic equipment is indistinguishable from a brand new unit. We offer a hydraulic repair service on power packs, pumps, motors, cylinders and other types of hydraulic equipment. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.

    Do you supply hydraulic power pack components and accessories?

    Yes, we do. Our product range includes: electric motors, prime movers, pumps, filters, valves, hydraulic motors, hydraulic cylinders and actuators and more.

    Which hydraulic power pack manufacturers and other suppliers do you deal with?

    We work with 80 brands to supply the widest selection of hydraulic brands and components in the UK. And because we’re independent, you’re guaranteed impartial technical advice and optimal solutions. Every time. Please get in touch if there is a particular branded hydraulic power pack that you are looking for.
