Airline carries a wide range of hydraulic products and systems along with controls and electrical components
used in power generation systems, such as hydroelectric, gas and steam turbines. Major companies in the power
generation industry rely on us for our systems expertise. We are a supplier to large OEM machinery builders
and have the knowledge to upgrade systems, repair hydraulic components, and maintain and service power plant
We also have a wide variety of products used in alternative energy production such as solar, wind turbines
and ocean power. We supply automation components, electrical controls and systems used in the production of
solar panels. We supply filtration, gear box cooling systems and lubrication systems used in wind turbines.
And we supply hydraulic components and engineered systems used in floating buoy units which harness the
power of ocean waves.
The global leader in the design and manufacture of hydraulic control valves, Rexroth offers a full line of directional (spool and poppet), proportional, pressure, flow, check, logic cartridges, "sandwich" (modular), and cartridge type valves. No other single-source hydraulics supplier offers a breadth of products like Rexroth. For demanding hydraulics systems applications - requiring for example, standard pressure capability to 4500 psi and higher, coupled with flow limitations measured to the 1000s of gallons per minute - the right choice for advanced hydraulics control valves is Bosch Rexroth.
HYDAC OKC Series Coolers use a combination of high-performance cooling elements and high-capacity, compact AC electric-powered fans to give trouble-free operation in hydraulic applications. The compact design allows the coolers to fit most equipment and provide the highest cooling performance in heat dissipation while minimizing space required.
HYDAC is pleased to introduce the STAT-Free filter element, the only electrostatic discharge element on the market to offer system protection. In contrast to other static discharge elements that focus only on the filter, the STAT-Free's patent-pending design dissipates the electrostatic charge within the filter and the fluid, eliminating the destructive arcing forces that cause extensive costly system component damage.
Eaton's motor control centers offer the best method for grouping motor control, associated control, distribution equipment and industrial communications. They are specially designed to operate machinery, industrial processes, and commercial building systems.
When it comes to high-current electrical equipment, safety and machine up time are two of the most important considerations on the production floor. To lessen concern of these critical factors on engineers and service personnel, Rittal has developed a technology that minimizes the risk of arc flash explosions in a smart, highly-engineered way. Rittal�s Power Isolation Enclosure solutions provide the capability to isolate high- and low-voltage equipment within the confines of their respective enclosure, assisting with compliance of NFPA 70E work place safety standards.
Eaton's low voltage switchgear provides centralized control and protection of low voltage power equipment and circuits in industrial, commercial, and utility installations involving generators, motors, feeder circuits, and transmission and distribution lines.
HYDAC Dehydrator Solves Water Problem in Hydroelectric Plant
Airline's Service Department used a HYDAC FAM VAC dehydrator to remove large amounts of water in the hydraulic
system of a hydroelectric plant, located along a river in New England, where falling water is converted into
energy. The water falls into a turbine making it spin, turning it and its shaft at a high rate of speed. The
shaft goes through a series of large magnets, creating electricity which is sold throughout the area. There
are two actuators that are closed-loop controlled that allow a certain amount of water through to the turbine,
depending if the river water is high or low. There is a large bearing that supports the shaft of the turbine
that requires lubrication from the hydraulic system. On one side of the bearing there is water which is only
prevented from coming into the system by a large seal. On the other side is the bearing and hydraulic oil. In
this case, the seal had failed and could not keep the water out, so the customer had water in his oil. They
had changed this seal many, times and nothing seemed to work. Airline proposed that the customer use our
HYDAC FAM VAC dehydrator to remove the water, but first the hydraulic system and manifold had to be cleaned
so that new oil could be used before putting the HYDAC unit on line. Airline service personnel worked in
harsh conditions to remove the contaminated oil and cleaned the system and manifold thoroughly. Then the
HYDAC unit was put online and the hydraulic system was started with absolutely no problems. The customer
was very pleased with the outcome.
