Performance improvement has been achieved through re-design and re-engineering of the complete hydraulic system, down to the component and sub-assembly level, together with improvements to installation and service procedures.
"The ALPHA Series will extend and consolidate Hyva's record of innovation and leadership in front end hydraulic cylinders. This is the fifth generation of front end tipping solutions which Hyva has brought to market," explained Jacob Biemond, R&D Director. "We are proud that we are maintaining our position of offering the lightest, fastest, most efficient and safest tipping solutions to our customers."
Transport Efficiency, Safety, and Reliability
In this new tipping solution, hydraulic cylinders are smaller, lighter, stronger, and operate at higher pressure and consume less oil. Brackets are stronger, lighter and can be maintenances free. Wet kits have improved knock-off and control options, cylinder mounted tipping valves, new tank and filter options, and pumps operating at higher pressure.
These improvements deliver faster tipping, shorter cycle times and reduced system size and weight which can translate into more efficient working routines, increased payloads and reduced operating costs. Smaller space installations, quick connections of valves, cylinders and hoses, maintenance-free seals and longer service intervals, all this contribute to lower levels of downtime.
Safety is enhanced through re-designed cylinder overlaps and guide systems and new cylinder mounted HT tipping valves with new pressure relief safety. These features reduce the risks of vehicle turnovers and hose bursts. The operator has complete control over the tipping system.
Reliability has been improved through a programme of review of every single component. Wherever necessary, components have been re-designed and then tested to satisfy the required lifetime of that component.
Environmental performance too is improved through lower fuel and oil consumption. Extensive field testing in India and China of a variant of the ALPHA Series has validated the benefits of the new solution and attracted praise from customers.
Maximum benefits in terms of efficiency and reduced operating costs will be achieved with installation of the complete hydraulic system.
