New Eckart HyRAV series hydraulic valve actuators IC-Fluid Power a privately-held firm providing custom hydraulics and replacement spare parts to clients throughout North America, announced they now offer the HyRAV® Series hydraulic valve actuators by Eckart®. “We are excited to add the HyRAV Series of hydraulic valve actuators from Eckart to our offerings,” commented Bernd “Ben” Hunger, Vice President of IC-Fluid Power. “Eckart is an innovative and dynamic, German-based, mechanical engineering company and we are proud to be their North American distributor and look forward to offering this product to the competitive valve actuation field due to the many benefits of using an Eckart hydraulic actuator,” he continued. Eckart HyRAV valve actuators comprise a full series of double-acting actuators and can be applied in conditions with high vibrations and severe environmental locations. The HyRAV Series provides a powerful, safe solution and is easily adapted to all types of valves. Advantages of the HyRAV Series of hydraulic valve actuators include 12 drive sizes with torques up to 250,000Nm at 210bar, small dimensions, slim and compact style, and smallest footprint to torque ratio by concentric design are no radial forces transmitted to the valve. In addition, these series have optimum cushioning that protects the valve and actuator, easy installation and adjustment to each valve, are maintenance free, no lubrication required, suitable for on/off, control and failsafe operation, a high-repeat accuracy and very simple control of the flow rates, an extremely trip possible (eg. 90° in 0,2 sec.), robust against extreme environmental conditions and durable against vibrations.
