Forestry equipment can be complex, with a single machine chopping, cutting, and carrying timber. Multiple hydraulic systems control the different functions and sealing within them must allow smooth operation, often 24-7 at key harvesting times. Wood debris must be excluded as well as media from forestry terrains, while lubricants must be kept in to protect the environment.
The power train or drive system in forestry vehicles consists of an engine and a network of components that deliver power to the tracks or wheels. Engines and drive components can have a variety of configurations and sealing solutions, which are designed to meet the unique requirements of each application and equipment. Seals prevent contamination, protect components and keep lubricants inside the system.
Cylinders & Actuators
Cylinders and actuators play crucial roles in forestry equipment operation. They allow equipment to lift and move heavy loads and seals enable maximum performance and smooth operation.
Valves & Pumps
Pumps and valves are a vital components in hydraulic systems and they come in a range of different sizes, depending on the demands of the equipment. Pumps generate flow of hydraulic fluids, while pumps direct and control the flow. Seals prevent leakage of fluids under harsh conditions and high pressures.
Central Tire Inflation System
Central Tire Inflation Systems (CTIS) are integrated pressure control systems that allow operators to easily inflate or deflate tire pressures from inside the vehicle. The right pressure boosts performance and enhances productivity during daily operation.
Implements & Attachments
Implements and attachments on forestry equipment enable them to perform a wide range of functions. Seals play a vital role in keeping contamination out of the system, while preventing leakage of fluids into the environment.
Tracks and tires keep forestry vehicles moving around to get the equipment where it needs to be.
