High-pressure hydraulics specialist, Enerpac has launched a new range of high-tonnage cylinders (HTC), called Summit, aimed at heavier lifts in harsher environments.

Enerpac says its new Summit Edition HTC models – in standard capacities from 50-1,000 tons – “offer outstanding durability, longer service life, and greater side-load resistance for increased heavy lift capability in demanding industries requiring maximum durability, uptime, cost-efficiency and safety.”

Summit cylinders are applicable to demanding applications in bulk handling and mining.

The new HTC engineering incorporated into the cylinders includes advanced bearing and sealing technology to extend the boundaries for eccentric loads, while reducing cylinder maintenance intervals, says Enerpac national sales manager, Darryl Lange.

“The effects of corrosion and scoring are no longer a concern with the Summit ranges because of the cylinders’ black nitrocarburization surface treatment for improved load and wear resistance, plus corrosion protection,” he said.
