Back to Basics: Quick Disconnects

Quick disconnect fittings (QDs), also known as quick connects or quick-release couplings, reduce downtime during accessory or equipment changeovers, simplify and speed up servicing, reduce leaks and simplify diagnostics. They do not require tools for assembly or disassembly like hydraulic line connectors. And they come in many different types and are used throughout a broad range of industries.

QD Factors

Whether selecting a QD for retrofitting equipment or during the design process, there are many factors to consider. These fittings typically have several components in the fluid path, so they often have greater pressure drops than simpler fittings. Therefore, it is important to know (and confirm) that a fitting will deliver the required flow performance required for the application. Likewise, because QDs can have pressure limitations, ensure the specified fitting can handle the application’s maximum service pressure.

Material selection also is important. The fitting’s material needs to be compatible with the working fluid and handle the application’s maximum and minimum temperatures. Fortunately, QDs come in a variety of materials, including metallic components of brass, electroless nickel-plated brass, 303 and 316 stainless steels, in addition to elastomeric components such as Buna-N, EDPM, Viton, silicone and perfluoroelastomers. Plastic quick disconnects also are available from some manufacturers. In any case, manufacturer should be consulted for specific details.

The backhoes are powered by the Cat C3.6 engine, which meets Tier 4 Final emission standards. The engine consists of a service-free Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emission solution with diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) and diesel particulate filter (DPF) for the 416 to 430 models. The 415 backhoe requires only the DPF to meet Tier 4 requirements, avoiding the need for DEF.

The new engine delivers up to 10 per cent improved fuel economy compared to the F2 Series engine. All models in the new backhoe loader line feature standard 4-wheel drive with rear differential lock for more traction in poor ground conditions.

Power management

The 420, 420 XE and 430 models are available with selectable power management modes. This allows the choice of standard mode engine performance for increased fuel savings or standard plus mode to boost machine performance by maximizing backhoe implement speeds.

Back to Basics: Accumulators

Hydraulic accumulators store hydraulic fluid under pressure to supplement pump flow and reduce pump capacity requirements, maintain pressure and minimize pressure fluctuations in closed systems absorb shocks, and provide auxiliary hydraulic power in an emergency. Here’s how.

The Basics

A hydraulic accumulator is a pressure vessel containing a membrane or piston that confines and compresses an inert gas (typically nitrogen). Hydraulic fluid is held on other side of the membrane. An accumulator in a hydraulic device stores hydraulic energy much like a car battery stores electrical energy.

Its initial gas pressure is called the “precharge pressure.” When the system pressure exceeds the precharge pressure, the nitrogen gas is squeezed, compresses and decreases in volume, letting hydraulic fluid into the accumulator. The accumulator’s fluid volume increases until the system reaches its maximum pressure (P2). When system pressure decreases, the nitrogen gas expands and forces the fluid out of the accumulator, providing power to the hydraulic system, until the system and accumulator pressures equalize (P1).

Properly used accumulators increase hydraulic system performance and efficiency, lower operating and maintenance costs, provide fail-safe protection and extend system life by minimizing failure of pumps, pipes and other components.

Properly used accumulators increase hydraulic system performance and efficiency, lower operating and maintenance costs, provide fail-safe protection and extend system life by minimizing failure of pumps, pipes and other components.

What Accumulators Do
Here are the top reasons for using accumulators:

To supplement pump flow. The most common use for accumulators is to supplement pump flow. Some hydraulic circuits need high-volume flow, but only for a short periods, and then use little or no fluid for an extended period. When half or more of the machine cycle does not use pump flow, designers usually install an accumulator circuit.

Accumulators need a pressure drop to operate. In some cases, the final design calls for a higher pressure than initially planned. For example, in the circuit shown above, it takes at least 2,000 psi to perform the work, but the accumulators must be filled to a higher pressure so they can supply extra fluid without dropping below the system’s minimum pressure. So, this circuit uses 3,000-psi maximum pressure to store enough fluid to cycle the cylinder in the allotted time and still have enough force to do the work.

The circuit uses several accumulators to supplement pump flow because the dwell time is 45 sec. out of the 57.5-sec. cycle. Its 22-gpm fixed-volume pump operates on pressure during most of the cycle to fill the cylinder and accumulators. Without the accumulators, this circuit would require a 100-gpm pump driven by a 125-hp motor. Although the initial cost for a smaller pump and motor plus the accumulators may be close to that of the larger pump and motor, energy savings over the machine’s life makes this accumulator circuit more economical.

Hydraulic Fittings and Flanges

If the components within hydraulic systems never had to be removed, connections could be brazed or welded to maximize reliability. However, it is inevitable that connections must be broken to allow servicing or replacing components, so removable fittings are a necessity for all but the most specialized hydraulic systems. To this end, fitting designs have advanced considerably over the years to improve performance and installation convenience, but the overall function of these components remains relatively unchanged.

Fittings seal fluid within the hydraulic system by one of two techniques: all-metal fittings rely on metal-to-metal contact, while O-ring type fittings contain pressurized fluid by compressing an elastomeric seal. In either case, tightening threads between mating halves of the fitting (or fitting and component port) forces two mating surfaces together to form a high-pressure seal.

All-Metal Fittings
Threads on pipe fittings are tapered and rely on the stress generated by forcing the tapered threads of the male half of the fitting into the female half or component port (Fig. 1). Pipe threads are prone to leakage because they are torque-sensitive—over-tightening distorts the threads too much and creates a path for leakage around the threads. Moreover, pipe threads are prone to loosening when exposed to vibration and wide temperature variations—certainly no strangers to hydraulic systems.

Seepage around threads should be expected when pipe fittings are used in high-pressure hydraulic systems. Because pipe threads are tapered, repeated assembly and disassembly only aggravates the leakage problem by distorting threads, especially if a forged fitting is used in a cast-iron port. Thread sealant compound, a potential contaminant, is recommended for pipe fittings, which is still another reason why most designers consider them to be obsolete for use in hydraulic systems.

Flare-type fittings (Fig. 2) were developed as an improvement over pipe fittings many years ago and probably remain the design used most often in hydraulic systems. Tightening the assembly’s nut draws the fitting into the flared end of the tubing, resulting in a positive seal between the flared tube face and the fitting body. The 37-deg. flare fittings are designed for use with thin-wall to medium-thickness tubing in systems with operating pressures to 3,000 psi. Because thick-wall tubing is difficult to form to produce the flare, it is not recommended for use with flare fittings. The 37-deg. flare fitting is suitable for hydraulic systems operating at temperatures from −65° to 400° F. It is more compact than most other fittings and can easily be adapted to metric tubing. It is readily available and one of the most economical.

Mobile Hydraulics: Challenges and Opportunities

Electric vehicles are quickly becoming essential elements in personal and mass transportation sectors. In mobile machine segments, major suppliers in areas such as construction, warehousing, and off-highway are launching full electric and electric hybrid equipment in response to industry demands to lower carbon footprints and comply with stricter emissions regulations.

These trends are leading to technology innovations in a broad range of construction, agricultural, and other off-highway working vehicles. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), drivetrain providers, and other technology suppliers are designing and prototyping ways to use battery-powered electric drives and hybrid electric/diesel drives to move off-highway machines and power their implements.

The push for electrification does not mean the eventual replacement of hydraulics with electric motors will occur; instead, the industry will work toward ways to integrate electrics into off-highway platforms in the most effective ways possible, and to make maximum use of the power density and efficiency provided by hydraulics technology.

Rapidly Evolving Market for Electric-Driven Machines
In the lower-power segment with mobile machines, such as aerial work platforms, forklifts, and commercial lawnmowing systems, battery-electric drives are rapidly replacing combustion engines and even hybrid diesel-electric drivetrains. In most cases, the duty cycle and loads for this equipment allow the battery to be recharged overnight to support a full work shift the next day; this is due in part to improvements in both battery technology and electric motor power and efficiency.

The next round of electrification challenges lies within the larger machines, such as the heavy-duty construction, agricultural, and working machines that typically use diesel engines for their drivetrains and hydraulics to power their implements. This class of equipment is often referred to as the 700-Volt (V) machine class. Industry drivers that are leading to new investments in “electrifying” these kinds of machines include:

With growing opportunities to grab major construction projects around the world, fluid-power customers are relying on equipment manufacturers to build machines that perform reliably in any environment without needing for frequent maintenance. Meeting these expectations can be challenging and requires components that can handle extreme temperatures, wet and dry conditions, and constant heavy-duty operations, and that includes seals and gaskets.

To design and manufacture the durable and gaskets that keep hydraulic cylinders, pumps, motors and valves operating smoothly, suppliers must stay ahead of their customers’ requirements. One method of doing this involves analyzing industry trends and their role in developing new fluid-power materials, designs and products. Here are six industry trends that will influence the research and development activities pursued by fluid-power suppliers.

Customization Within Standardization

Standardization is a universal industrial trend that has driven realignment in many industries. The automotive industry, for example, successfully established a standard platform vehicle strategy several decades ago. Mirroring a similar mindset, many of today’s fluid-power cylinder manufacturers no longer offer different cylinders for different applications. Instead, they provide standard cylinders with broader performance capabilities. The benefits of this approach include lower development and SCM costs and faster responses to the market.

New Holland releases a new large baler

NEW Holland released a new BigBaler 1290 High Density large square baler at its national dealer conference in New South Wales recently.

The company claims the new model provides up to 22 per cent higher density than conventional large square balers and increased productivity and comfort with a unique SmartShift gearbox.

It also incorporates a 29 knife CropCutter system and a LoopMaster knotting technology that eliminates twine offcuts and increases tensile strength.

According to New Holland brand president Carlo Lambro, the new model also has an industry-first hydraulic axle concept with large tandem wheels.

“This latest model, built at our Centre of Harvesting Excellence in Zedelgem, Belgium, is the culmination of more than 30 years of baling excellence,” Mr Lambro said.

According to WA New Holland dealer Barry Coote, Brookton, the 1290 is equipped with several new features that the hay market will demand in the future.

“I think this baler will dominate the high density baler market because it has been extensively tested in Australian conditions,” Mr Coote said.

A new MaxiSweep pick-up helps to feed crops at higher rates, resulting in increased capacity and performance.

The company said the new gearbox delivered a soft start-up, resulting in greater comfort for the operator and overload protection for the tractor’s driveline.

The driveline concept, a silver medal winner at last year’s Agritechnica Show in Germany, features a two-speed powershift start-up technology that delivers a smooth baler engagement with a 79pc increase in torque.

The operator engages the baler at a tractor PTO speed of 850 rpm, the SmartShift gearbox automatically shifts from first to second gear, accelerating to a maximum flywheel speed of 1440 rpm at full tractor PTO speed – one of the highest flywheel speeds in the segment.

This smooth start-up process protects the tractor and baler drivelines.

The flywheel is significantly heavier than on BigBaler Plus models and is 16pc bigger in diameter, coming in at 1080 millimetres.
