3520 Series Hydraulic Power Unit Features And Benefits
- Low Noise Levels: Acoustic attenuation system providing noise levels of 58 - 63 dB (A)*.
- Low Environmental Impact: With increasing demands for reduced environmental impact, Instron® has incorporated a number of innovative low environmental impact features.
- Low Operating and Power Costs: The pressure-compensated variable flow pump configuration ensures operating costs are maintained with test flow demand. Combined with high-efficiency Class 1 motors, power costs are kept to an absolute minimum.
*dB (A) is a measurement of the sound pressure level (units Decibel, dB), weighted to suit the normal frequency response of the human ear. It is expressed in free field (open) conditions, and therefore readings may vary within the installed environment.
FeaturesInstron 3520 Series Hydraulic Power Units (HPUs) contain a combination of standard features that are not available on other commercial units. Each Hydraulic Power Unit can be factory-fitted with a number of options to meet specific site conditions.
The Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), fitted to every model, provides optimum system control and Hydraulic Power Unit status feedback, as well as a broad range of system interlocks (including oil level, oil temperature, filter condition, and motor temperature).
The 3520 Series Hydraulic Power Units are designed to operate at levels 10% above nominal full pressure to compensate for pressure losses in long pipe work runs between the HPU and test station(s).
With oil cleanliness vital to performance and longevity of servo-controlled hydraulic systems, Instron provides 2-micron pressure line filtration on every HPU as standard - a feature omitted by other manufacturers.
Wide ranges of flow rates are available to suit every single and multi-station test configuration.
High oil tank volume to flow rate ratios, resulting in longer oil change intervals and reduced system downtime.
3-year parts warranty (in addition to Instron’s standard product warranty)
