of any size take-up unit. A power pack’s primary function is to provide the necessary hydraulic/oil flow in gallons per minute to properly power a take-up. The power pack serves as a reservoir to store oil for the pump. The flow of oil in the power pack determines how fast the carriage travels to the take-up unit. The pressure created by the power pack is the determining factor in the strength of pull the take-up achieves. Take-up units, as discussed here, must have a power pack in order to function properly.
West River Conveyors carries a variety of hydraulic power packs for use with our take-up units. We stock power packs for a number of different size take-up units with standard t-frame motors — including 5, 7.5 and 20HP. We also build power packs to suit your specific needs. Our engineers have successfully manufactured custom hydraulic power packs for many different take-up styles and sizes.
Shaft alignment takes on critical importance when you’re dealing with high horsepower motors. The least amount of angular misalignment or lateral displacement will lead to vibration, accelerated wear, and possibly read more »
