Power Units

Raising Your Expectations for Industrial Equipment Control Solutions

The ability to deliver high power and torque from a small footprint makes hydraulic power units the first choice for a host of linear actuator/hydraulic cylinder and rotary motion applications. These power units depend on precise and durable low-leakage valves for fast and accurate flow, pressure, and temperature control. HydraForce manufactures a wide range of screw-in, cartridge-style valves for hydraulic power unit applications.


Many hydraulic power units have gone over to variable speed designs. These save energy by controlling motor speed to deliver the target flow or pressure but reliable performance depends on quality power unit controls. When those components are manufactured by HydraForce you can be confident of getting exactly the precision and performance you need.


Fixed speed, open-loop power unit designs still play a vital role in countless heavy-duty hydraulic applications. Safe and consistent operation demands power unit controls made from quality materials, hardened and machined to the tightest tolerances and the finest finishes.


Many power units are designed for stable pressure, and HydraForce has the valves that ensure fast response with low hysteresis in these applications. Other power units operate more dynamically. HydraForce offers power unit controls for these applications too.


Important functions and capabilities of HydraForce power unit controls include:


  • Direct-acting and pilot-operated designs to suit your hydraulic power unit
  • Hardened components for added durability and extended life
  • Screw-in, cartridge-style designs for easy installation and upgrading
  • Fast response with low hysteresis and low leak rates

IOT Fleet Management for Power Units

Implemented on power units, HydraForce Internet of Things (IOT) technology improves reliability and availability and can even extend its lifetime. This is achieved by capturing and reporting operating data such as variable/fixed speed controls and dynamic/stable pressure controls, as well as through enhanced control and improved asset utilization.

The hydraulic fluid power industry makes substantial investments in machinery. IOT fleet management technology from HydraForce raises ROI by improving availability and reducing maintenance costs.
