Eaton Launches Vickers NZ NFPA High Pressure
Hydraulic Cylinder Line; Features Solid Base Design
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. … Diversified industrial manufacturer Eaton Corporation has announced the release of its new line of robust NFPA small and medium bore tie rod hydraulic cylinders designed for a broad range of industrial applications
The new Vickers® NZ cylinder demonstrates Eaton’s focus on continually enhancing and broadening its industrial cylinder product offering. A key benefit of the Vickers NZ line is that it is a solid base design featuring the Sure Seal™ sealing system, special rod and piston wear band, optional captured cushion, and an easy-to-service unitized rod cartridge. This new high-performance cylinder line also features hardened piston rods, high yield strength tubes and pistons, and steel heads/caps. The resulting benefit is long life for machine tool, plastics and rubber, wind turbine, primary metals, testing and simulation, and marine equipment.
The NZ cylinder has a comprehensive range of standard options for ultimate customizability; with standard bore sizes from 1.5 to 8 inches, and virtually unlimited stroke lengths. In addition to the broad standard offering, Eaton’s design team also offers custom NZ cylinders with specifications that far exceed the standard catalog offering for almost any heavy-duty industrial application.
