Hydraulic Systems

The breadth of HYDAC's product range together with many years of experience in hydraulic system design equips us to offer tailor-made solutions for almost all sectors.

We design and supply turnkey hydraulic control and drive systems, including electronic controls for mobile and stationary machines and systems.

All our hydraulic system components are German made, while the systems themselves are designed and built right here in Melbourne.

The complete package

When you order a fully operational hydraulic system from HYDAC, you'll receive the complete package from a single source:

  • Hydraulic power pack
  • Hydraulic actuators
  • Hydraulic tools
  • Lubrication systems
  • Filtration and cooling systems
  • Accumulator stations
  • Nitrogen high-pressure systems
  • Patented electro-hydraulic safety controls in compliance with IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 – SIL 3.
  • Complete analysis programs for electro-hydraulic controls
  • Also, hydraulic controls in modular design
  • Finally, installation, pipe installation and commissioning on both hydraulic/electrical sides.

As one of Australia's leading fluid power engineering companies, HYDAC understands the importance of hydraulic system design and is committed to delivering solutions of the highest quality.

Customised turnkey hydraulics

A dedicated team of local engineers with expertise in turnkey hydraulics can design for you a customised hydraulic system. Indeed, committed to making your project succeed, no project is too big or too small for HYDAC.

  • What is hydraulic systems?

    Hydraulic system is an energy transmission system. In a hydraulic system, mechanical energy is transformed into hydraulic energy.

    The hydraulic energy is used for energy transport, for energy control or regulation and is then converted back into mechanical energy again. The conversion from mechanical into hydraulic energy takes place using a hydraulic pump; the conversion from hydraulic into mechanical energy takes place through hydraulic cylinders motors.
