Eurofluid Hydraulik GmbH, based in Tulln, Austria, manufactured a hydraulic unit with an optimized installation space for a pelletizing plant in just two months on behalf of a global technology leader operating in the pelletizing segment. Since the hydraulic system was intended for the Japanese market, the special, customary overseas standard requirements had to be observed here too.
According to the manufacturer’s specifications, the unit was designed to be as compact as possible, measuring a mere 540 x 600 x 433 mm including the pressure gage. We opted for a conventional and proven unit design. To achieve the required liter capacity or delivery rate, we took the electric motor’s special speed into account when designing the gear pump.
Thanks to the high-quality ATEX zone 2 components installed, such as the electric motor and solenoid valve, the pelletizing machine can be easily used in an explosion-proof manner in a particularly critical working environment.
