HIT® - Hybrid Integrated Tank!

The “Wellness Center“ for every hydraulic and lubricating fluid - ready to install compact module

Function Integration: 1. Filter housing is integrated in the tank, 2. Ventilating filter, 3. Filling filter, 4. Integrated oil level indicator, 5. Quick-Connect fittings (see figure below), 6. Suction strainer, 7. Baffle wall (in the shape of a channel), 8. Internal suction or return pipes, 9. Sensor connections can be integrated , 10. Oil drain plug

“Quick-Connect“ system technology

The “hybrid tank“ intelligently combines the two manufacturing technologies rotational molding and injection molding. The unique combination of innovative production processes with a modular kit makes the “hybrid tank“ economically interesting even for small quantities.

Function
The hybrid tank is a ready-to-install complete module. All required tank functions are already integrated. Since the filter housing is part of the tank, there are no sealing points and therefore no risk of leakage. The tank geometry can be adapted as required to the installation situation. Numerous components such as filter cover, “Quick-Connect fittings“, etc. come from an existing modular system and do not cause any tool costs to the customer. 100% replacement filter element business is ensured by a special copy protection. The high thermal strength of the Polyamide material used allows the tank to be used even at higher operating temperatures. Quick-Connect fittings allow fault-free and tool-free hose mounting on the tank and can also be dismantled at any time.
