Hydraulic Reservoir, Filter And Cooling System
By Mike Osenga07 November 2019
APSCO, a manufacturer of pneumatic and hydraulic valves and controls for the mobile equipment & transportation industry has introduced a new 60 gpm hydraulic reservoir, filter and cooling system – the ARC-60.
Manufactured in Tulsa, Okla., the ARC‐60 is the second addition to APSCO’s ARC family of products that are designed to cool and condition hydraulic oil on mobile equipment and transportation applications with hydraulic drives.
“In developing the ARC‐60 we incorporated the popular features of our ARC-30 to ensure that our design and our features were market driven,” said Chris Wunsch, vice president of sales & marketing for APSCO.
A frame mount design, measuring less than 13 in. wide and rejecting 28 hp of heat at 60 gpm and 80° ETD (entering temperature differential), the ARC‐60 is designed to provide greater operating efficiency and longevity to the equipment’s hydraulic drive, while having the ability to be installed in tight spaces on either side of the vehicle.
The ARC‐60 is constructed from stainless steel and aluminum components, resulting in a corrosive resistant and what APSCO said is a visually attractive unit, suitable for the harshest of environments. Designed to be easy to service, all the components can be accessed and serviced by removing one panel.
As with its ARC-30, the design includes an integrated manifold system that reduces the ARC‐60’s tube and hose components to just one low pressure hose. This provides the operator greater durability, lower maintenance and easier serviceability, said APSCO CEO Vince Williams.
