A hydraulic power unit (HPU) is a mechanical system that generates power through the use of fluids, typically hydraulic fluid. It is often used to provide the power required to operate hydraulic machinery and equipment, such as hydraulic cylinders, motors, and valves.
An HPU consists of a hydraulic pump, a motor or engine, a reservoir for holding hydraulic fluid, filters to remove contaminants from the fluid, and control valves to regulate the flow of fluid to the hydraulic system. The pump is responsible for creating the pressure required to move the hydraulic fluid through the system and power the hydraulic components.
Hydraulic power units are commonly used in industrial, construction, and manufacturing settings to power equipment such as presses, cranes, lifts, and excavators. They are also used in mobile applications, such as hydraulic systems for trucks and other vehicles.
Overall, hydraulic power units are essential for providing reliable and efficient power to hydraulic systems, allowing them to perform a wide range of tasks with precision and control.
SIT provides the hydraulic calculation package, classification society approvals, operation manuals, integration testing, on-site commissioning and post-delivery service. Each system is turnkey design, manufactured, and certified by SIT. All HPU’s are applicable for many vessels and customizable for any application.
