Hydraulic Power Unit

A hydraulic power unit (HPU) is a self-contained system that generates hydraulic power to drive various hydraulic machinery and components. It typically consists of a pump, an electric motor or an engine, a reservoir for hydraulic fluid, and necessary control and safety components.

Hydraulic Power Unit


Electric Motor or Engine:Provides the primary power source to drive the hydraulic pump. It can be an electric motor for stationary applications or an engine for mobile equipment. Hydraulic Pump:Converts mechanical power from the motor or engine into hydraulic power by pressurizing hydraulic fluid (commonly oil). Reservoir:Stores hydraulic fluid, ensuring a continuous and reliable supply for the hydraulic system. It also aids in cooling and filtering the hydraulic fluid. Control Valves:Regulate the flow and direction of hydraulic fluid, allowing for precise control of hydraulic machinery. Accumulator:Stores hydraulic energy, providing additional power during peak demands and serving as a backup power source. Filtration System:Removes contaminants from the hydraulic fluid, maintaining the cleanliness of the system and preventing damage to components. Cooling System:Dissipates heat generated during hydraulic system operation, ensuring optimal temperature conditions for the components. Safety Components:Pressure relief valves, check valves, and other safety devices are often integrated to protect the system from overpressure and ensure safe operation.


Versatility: Can be customized for various industrial applications, providing power to different hydraulic components. Compact Design: Designed to be compact and self-contained, facilitating easy installation and mobility. Modularity: Components are often modular, allowing for easier maintenance and upgrades. Efficiency: Engineered for efficient energy conversion and precise control of hydraulic power.


Manufacturing Machinery: Powering hydraulic systems in presses, injection molding machines, and other manufacturing equipment. Construction Equipment: Driving hydraulic systems in excavators, bulldozers, and other heavy machinery. Material Handling: Providing power to hydraulic lifts, conveyors, and forklifts. Marine and Offshore: Used in various hydraulic applications on ships and offshore platforms. Aerospace: Powering hydraulic systems in aircraft, including landing gear and control surfaces.


Centralized Power Source: Serves as a centralized power source for multiple hydraulic components. Efficient Energy Conversion: Converts electrical or mechanical power into hydraulic power with high efficiency. Reduced Installation Time: Plug-and-play design allows for quicker installation compared to custom-built hydraulic systems.


Maintenance: Regular maintenance is crucial to ensure the longevity and reliability of the hydraulic power unit. Fluid Contamination: Proper filtration is essential to prevent contaminants from affecting the hydraulic system's performance.
