Continental Hydraulics Introduces Hydraulic Double Redundant Dual Monitoring and Lock-Out Valves
Savage, MN - Continental Hydraulics has introduced a new line of Double Redundant Dual Monitoring valve packages help to ensure better operating and safer hydraulic systems.
Continental Hydraulics offer both Double Redundant Dual Monitoring valve packages and Lock-Out valves to help hydraulic system users achieve monitoring goals. These new products offer clean compact solutions either connected directly to the main power source or as part of a branch circuit feeding one of many work cells.
The Double redundant Dual Monitoring valve package is built with two valves. Both must be activated to allow fluid and pressure to continue to the circuit. If either valve is deactivated, the outlet port is directed back to tank. The valves incorporate spool position monitoring switches and two pressure tap ports. This allows users to monitor the spool position and monitor whether pressure is rising or falling. This information can be used by system monitor controllers to alert of system failure or shut the machine off.
The Continental Hydraulics Lock-Out valve is designed to assist in meeting lock-out / tag-out requirements to protect technicians performing maintenance, repairs or set-up operations where a central hydraulic system is providing power to multiple work cells.
Safety and monitoring products have quick payback through reduced: machine down time, employee accidents, time and money lost by investigating accidents and possible lower insurance rates.
