Mining truck operators care about driving down the cost per ton and hydraulic systems play a major role, both in truck operation and in cost minimization. Precision, speed, and durability are paramount, and that’s why it’s important to use HydraForce force valves in mining truck controls.
The modern mining truck depends on hydraulics for almost every aspect of its operation. From transmission control systems to parking brakes and hoists, they all use hydraulic pressure developed by one or more pumps and distributed and controlled through manifolds and valves.
The latest generation hydraulic mining truck controls feature load sensing technology that keeps pumps and circuits running in low or no-load conditions until demand rises for flow and pressure. This improves efficiency and lowers operating costs, but demands even more from the hydraulic control system on the mining truck.
HydraForce cartridge-style valves support:
- Brake controls
- Accumulator charging
- Priority steering controls
- Transmission control
- Diesel engine fuel and emission systems
- Pilot actuation systems
HydraForce engineers every cartridge valve for optimal performance and durability. Valve bodies are available in steel, aluminum, and cast or ductile iron, and functional surfaces are plated and treated to excel in the harshest, most demanding environments.
