SPX launches hydraulic pump with improved speed

The SPX PE45 is part of the range and can provide continuous flow for up to twice the speed of typical 2-stage pumps.

The hydraulic pump can also perform continuous duty in an operating environment from -25°C to +50°C and it is easier to move due to a weight of 32.2 kg excluding oil. It features a 5 m long pendant control switch, improved oil filtration and a 1.8 horsepower Universal Motor which can cope with up to a 20% voltage drop.

It has a built-in retract relief valve in the manifold set at around 700 bar which protects both the tool and operator from any possible pressure intensification that may occur if the couplers should be incorrectly connected. The PE45 pressure regulator valve is also now more easily adjustable to vary the output torque from the tool.
