The benefits of hydraulic drive in Kersten machines
Ease and accuracy of control
By the use of simple levers, rotary controls and push buttons, the operator of a hydraulic system can easily start, stop, speed up and slow down
Multiplication of force
A fluid power system (without using cumbersome gears, pulleys and levers) can multiply forces simply and efficiently from a fraction of a kilogram to several tonnes of output
Constant force and torque
Only fluid power systems are capable of providing a constant torque or force regardless of speed changes
Simple, safe and economical
In general, hydraulic systems use fewer moving parts in comparison with mechanical and electrical systems. Thus they become simpler and easier to maintain
In house valve design and manufacture
Kersten design their own hydraulic systems to carry out intended tasks precisely. They then manufacture the valves to operate accordingly and fit in to the space available. It is not necessary to design the machine around industry standard parts.
Integrate electronic controls with hydraulics
Hydraulics may be fingertip controlled directly or remotely using electronic integration.
