Stauff demonstrates innovations in hydraulic components and accessories at Fluid Power & Systems 2018

Hydraulic components and accessories manufacturer Stauff enjoyed a highly successful Fluid Power & Systems exhibition, co-located with Drives & Controls. Stauff displayed a host of innovative products and providing a number of interactive demonstrations, with the tube manipulation work in particular drawing quite a crowd.

Recently introduced products on display included the Anti Corrosion Technology (ACT) Clamp – an innovative solution for the installation of pipework where anti-corrosion properties are paramount. The design, based on the tried and tested Stauff clamp according to DIN 3015, offers installation time reduction and long term cost savings due to extended service intervals.

Available in standard sizes from 6mm to 25.4mm, the ACT Clamp is made out of flame-retardant plastic, with material and construction in compliance with NORSOK Z-CR-010. The geometrically designed rubber strips form a direct contact with the pipe to eliminate the possibility of corrosion under the clamp body. Further drainage channels formed into the ACT Clamp aid dispersal of sea water when the clamp is applied.

Stauff also highlighted its new flexible hose technology, the S Flex-Ultra. This range of high pressure spiral hoses has been designed to offer greater flexibility than standard hoses. The design features an oil-resistant synthetic rubber inner tube, reinforced with steel spirals, and covered in a black synthetic rubber that is resistant to oil and harsh weather conditions. Initially available in 4000, 5000 and 6000PSI variants, these new isobaric spiral hoses improve ease of routing for installation and service work.

Along with a full range of hydraulic components and accessories, Stauff also highlighted its tube manipulation capabilities, demonstrating machinery and processes that enable the manufacture of manipulated rigid pipes to the most demanding requirements. Demonstrations included tube cutting, bending, end forming, cleaning and pressure testing.

On the final day of the show, Stauff welcomed BFPA chief executive Chris Buxton to the stand, who was particularly impressed with the tube manipulation demonstrations. He said: “Besides all the other fantastic products available from Stauff, this tube manipulation is fantastic.”

Commenting on the Stauff equipment supplied to the BFPA training centre, he added: “The pump room development work is a work of art.”
