9 WorldWide Drilling Resource ® NOVEMBER 2020 New Technology for PTO-Driven Air Compressor & Hydraulic Systems Canadian manufacturer VMAC has released state-of-the-art PTO-driven technology that will set a new standard for air compressor and hydraulic multipower systems. The next generation of its Direct-Transmission™ Mounted Multi-Power System, the DTM70-H, was designed as a configurable, all-in-one solution for service trucks fitted with hydraulic cranes or other hydraulic components, while also providing powerful air-on-demand capability with its priority valve and intelligent throttle control system. “Cranes require steady hydraulic flow, while air systems can benefit from adaptive air-on-demand control, providing maximum air flow only when it is needed. Combining both these functions into one sophisticated system gives operators the best of both worlds,” said Chris Moyse, engineering lead for the DTM70-H. The DTM70-H also allows operators to switch between fixed and variable operating modes. Fixed mode maintains a preset low engine speed for running hydraulic equipment and providing a steady rate of compressed air. Variable mode enables engine speeds to increase and decrease automatically based on air demand, while still maintaining steady hydraulic flow. Both modes enable hydraulic equipment to operate at their required speeds. Innovating existing successful products reflects the heart of VMAC’s lean manufacturing culture, which challenges coworkers to continually seek improvements in all facets of business.
