Eaton has introduced DuraForce series pumps and motors for heavy-duty industrial and construction applications.
Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation announced the availability of the DuraForce range of high-pressure piston pumps and motors to serve heavy-duty application markets in India. DuraForce pumps and motors are widely used in heavy-duty mining and construction vehicles, forestry equipment, concrete pumps, primary metal production equipment, and oil & gas drilling and production applications. All DuraForce products are rated for 420 bar high pressure applications, with peak pressures to 500 bar. The product range includes the DuraForce HPV closed circuit pumps and motors, and the HPR open circuit pumps for industrial applications. The motor products include the HMF and HMA fixed motors, and the HMV variable motors with a full range of controls. The launch of these products significantly extends a range of applications covered by Eaton pumps and motors. DuraForce products are available through a strategic alliance between Eaton and Linde Hydraulics formed last year.
“This alliance will prove to be of maximum value to our customers,” said Raja Kochar, Managing Director, India. “This move will enhance our business presence in the market and compliment the wide product portfolio that already exists in the country. We see a very good potential for new markets with these DuraForce products,” he added.
“With the launch of this product line, we have substantially expanded our portfolio of pumps and motors,” said Nitin Chalke, Managing Director, India, Hydraulics Group, adding, “Our alliance with Linde Hydraulics is a great way to tap emerging markets by having access to new cutting-edge technologies and products.”
