The 85CE-PDP can be operated in a temperature range from +10°C to +35°C. With an oil volume of 2.5 l, the unit has a weight of 9 kg, meaning it can be carried easily with the integrated shoulder strap. Thomas Troeller, Product Manager Fittings, Parker Polymer Hose Division Europe, said: “With our enhanced portfolio of crimper power units, Parker Polymer Hose Division Europe can service all kinds of crimping demands. Together with the Karrykrimp 1 and 2, our offer includes tools to maximise productivity and flexibly crimp hose wherever needed.” The crimper power unit fits perfectly with the 700 bar hose assembly size -4 inclusive male coupler and handholds produced by Parker. For maximum portability and flexibility, Parker offers the two hand pumps, Karrykrimp 1 and 2, while the new 85CE-PDP pump operated by a cordless screwdriver will increase productivity and versatility for smaller hose assembly needs. Other versions available include an electric pump, electric power unit and air/hydraulic pump. Expanded PVG portfolio with new PVG 48 proportional valve Danfoss Power Solutions has extended its PVG valve portfolio with the addition of PVG 48, a pre-compensated proportional control valve for mobile machinery. Designed for applications requiring flow rates of up to 180 liters per minute (47.6 gallons per minute), PVG 48 provides customers with a right-sized option between the existing PVG 32 and PVG 128 valves. It greatly expands the range of medium-flow capabilities for original equipment manufacturers and distributors globally. The PVG 48 valve is designed to easily integrate with the existing line of Danfoss Power Solutions’ high-performance proportional valves, including PVG 256, PVG 128, PVG 32, and PVG 16. The modularity of the PVG portfolio enables five valve sizes to be stacked together. This allows hydraulic flow from high to low within the same valve stack, enabling precise and repeatable control and optimizing productivity for customers. PVG 48 maximises the power density of the PVG 32 interface. Its compact design also saves space and reduces weight while maximising performance. The new PVG 48 modules also offer a range of inlets, including PVPM 48 midinlet and PVSI 48 with P&T end plates, which can accommodate for the higher
