All hydraulic ratings and pressures are at the machine and do not take into account the pressure drops of individual hydraulic systems. These pressure drops need to be taken into account and added to the rating of the hydraulic pump and components. Vanair highly recommends consulting a hydraulic supply expert for specifying the correct hydraulic pump size and type, oil reservoir size, hydraulic cooler, hydraulic pressure relief, and other hydraulic supply components for your application. Please take into consideration the following: The hydraulic flow and pressure requirements of the air compressor, the continuous hydraulic load when the compressor is running, the duty cycle and ambient operating temperatures, and any other hydraulic equipment that may share the same hydraulic supply system (Vanair recommends a dedicated pump and hydraulic circuit).
