Transit Mixers

Transit Mixers

A reputation for highly reliable products has enabled Eaton to gain the lead position in providing hydraulic components for transit mixers—vehicles on which downtime can mean disaster. A unique electronic control option enables truck drums to rotate independent of the engine. Whether the truck is traveling down a highway or idling at a traffic light, the drum maintains a consistent rotation speed that is preset.

Also onboard transit mixers are Aeroquip®, Eaton®, and Weatherhead® fluid conveyance products; Eaton heavy-duty closed-circuit piston pumps and motors; Vickers® screw-in cartridge valves, industrial valves, and filtration products; and electrohydraulic valve system technology.

Eaton offers the industry’s broadest options for the demanding auxiliary hydraulics applications on transit mixers. Our Aeroquip Triple Crown and Weatherhead Diamond Advantage hose products offer 24% higher pressure ratings than most competitors’ hose and higher temperature ratings that result in increased reliability and more uptime.

Eaton’s new LifeSense™ hydraulic hose technology is the first and only true, condition-based, hydraulic hose monitoring system. It detects events occurring within the hose that lead to failure and signals when the hose needs to be replaced. Eaton LifeSense hose saves time and money by helping to prevent downtime, environmental cleanups, equipment/collateral damage, and injury. The hose improves reliability and productivity of hydraulic systems by utilizing virtually the full service life of each monitored hose.
