6. Working with the parts catalogue and the categories

We know how important it is to find the right part in nearly no time! That’s why we created various paths to find the spare part you’ve been searching for.

We divided the online assortment into main parts categories. If you are not looking for anything in particular, just browse through our Parts catalogue, where you can find main categories such as: dredge equipment, electricals or communication equipment - to find out about our wide and yet tailored range of products. Once hovering your mouse over the main categories, a new list of sub-categories will reveal itself. When clicking on the sub-category, you will be able to see important information about your item: price, actual warehouse status, photo as well as a short description. If this is the item you’ve been looking for, simply add it to your shopping basket and your item will be lifted onto a Virtual Forklift virtual forklift on the top right-hand side of the page. Click on the button instructing you to view your cart and follow the instructions for a successful checkout!

Not ready to check out yet? No problem. Continue browsing the catalogue and add additional products to the Virtual Forklift virtual forklift. It is super powerful and can carry lots and lots of heavy parts.

Hydac Bladder accumulators are hydro pneumatic accumulators with a flexible bladder as a separation element between compressible gas cushion and operating fluid. HYDAC bladder accumulators consist of a welded or forged pressure vessel, the accumulator bladder and the fittings for the gas- and medium-side connection. In addition to the standard design, special designs for particular applications are possible, for example for very high discharge speeds and high pressures.
Essential specifications are:
  • Nominal volume: up to 3,300 l,
  • Permitted operating pressure: up to 1,000 bar,
  • Piston speed: depends on the sealing system, normally up to 5 m/s; higher speeds possible,
  • Accumulator shell materials: carbon steel, rustproof materials, lightweight materials.
HYDAC piston accumulators have the following advantages:
  • Minimal pressure difference between fluid side and gas side,
  • Large usable volume,
  • Variable installation position,
  • Piston position can be monitored by various systems,
  • Particularly suitable for back-up configurations,
  • Extreme flow rates,
  • No sudden discharge of gas when seals are worn.
We offer these products in our webshop. See an overview via this link

14. What are Hydac piston accumulators?

Hydac Piston accumulators are hydro pneumatic accumulators with a free-moving piston as a separation element between a compressible gas cushion and the operating fluid. HYDAC piston accumulators are comprised of a cylinder with a finely processed interior, with screwed-in cover on the gas and fluid side as a rule and a piston with special sealing systems. Piston accumulators can be adjusted very flexibly to customer requirements (e.g. series SK280 with patented design). Selection of the volume is practically stepless. The piston position can be made visible and also be used for switching functions in the hydraulic system. Essential specifications are:
  • Nominal volume: up to 3,300 l,
  • Permitted operating pressure: up to 1,000 bar,
  • Piston speed: depends on the sealing system, normally up to 5 m/s; higher speeds possible,
  • Accumulator shell materials: carbon steel, rustproof materials, lightweight materials.
HYDAC piston accumulators have the following advantages:

16. What are Hydac metal bellows accumulators?

Metal bellows accumulators are hydro pneumatic accumulators with metal bellows as a separation element between the compressible gas cushion and the operating fluid. The separation element is designed as either corrugated bellows or diaphragm bellows. HYDAC metal bellows accumulators are versatile in their application. For example, they are used for pulsation damping on heavy diesel engines or in the chemical industry. In the aero plane industry, this type of accumulator design is usually used as energy accumulators or for volumetric compensation, respectively. HYDAC metal bellows accumulators have the following advantages, which allows them to extend the overall application field of HYDAC Accumulator Technology:
  • Gas-tight,
  • Low-maintenance,
  • Media-resistant in broad temperature ranges (e.g. in aviation applications up to 160 °C).

17. What are Hydac hydraulic dampers?

Hydraulic dampers is the collective term for pulsation dampers, suction flow stabilizers, shock absorbers and silencers (fluid silencers or noise dampers). Pulsation dampers are comprised in general of bladder, piston and diaphragm accumulators, either with or without blocks guiding the fluid current in and out. Suction flow stabilizers and silencers are based on different construction principles. Volume and/or pressure fluctuations occurring in fluid technology systems have a negative effect on the function and service life of the individual components in the system. The use of hydro pneumatic dampers, following a precise analysis of the system and subsequent dimensional determination of the damper, can reduce these pulsations. This means that the utilization of HYDAC hydraulic dampers brings economic advantages and process reliability. These advantages include:
  • Reduction of pressure pulsations,
  • Improved output behavior of displacement pumps,
  • Prevention of breakage to lines and valves,
  • Protection of the measurement devices and their functions in a system,
  • Reduction of the noise exposure in hydraulic systems,
  • Lowering of servicing and maintenance costs and
  • Extended service life of the system.

21. Can I buy Hydac flow rate sensors? What are the Hydac flow rate sensors?

The flow rate measuring transducer of the EVS 3000 series works in accordance with the turbine principle (recording the rpm of an impeller wheel rotating in the media flow). Depending on the version, additional connection openings for pressure and/or temperature transmitters are available. The flow monitors of the HFS 2000 series are based on the buoyancy transmitter measurement principle. Under these circumstances, the measurement medium deflects a spring-charged buoyancy transmitter in the flow direction, depending on the flow rate. A reed contact is fitted outside of the device. This will switch when the magnet integrated in the buoyancy transmitter reaches the preset position. Electronic flow rate measuring transducers for general applications:
  • EVS 3100 (for oils / viscous media)
  • EVS 3110 (for water-based media)
Electromechanical flow monitors for general applications:
  • HFS 2100 (for oils / viscous media)
  • HFS 2500 (for water-based media)
You can buy the Hydac flow rate sensors on ShipSupport.com.

38. What are Trafag temperature switches (thermostats)?

For more than 70 years, Trafag thermostats have proven their reliability in the most difficult conditions. A thermostat maintains a certain temperature in a system by turning on or off at a set temperature. The core of a mechanical thermostat with bellows system consists of a special oil in a sensor causing a microblock to be activated. A bimetal thermostat consists of two connected metal strips with different expansion coefficients. Due to the difference in expansion, the whole bends with a temperature change, so that a contact is activated at a certain temperature. Applicable to air conditioning, heating systems, engine building, shipping, offshore oil and gas production. We offer these products in our webshop. Just type the product you need into the find box on the top of this page and the webshop will show you the available ship parts you can purchase.
