Hydraulic tanks for machinery, equipment and automotive engineering
Hydraulic tanks are integrated into the hydraulic system in machinery, equipment and in a wide range of vehicles, such as cars, trucks or agricultural machinery. Hydraulic systems are used to transmit power, energy and signals. The system works with a fluid, which is usually hydraulic oil. The hydraulic tank itself is a closed container. It is connected to the surrounding air via bleed valves. This connection is necessary because it allows pressure equalization at all times. Without this connection, the returning oil would create an overpressure, and leaking oil would create a negative pressure. The hydraulic reservoir is filled with the appropriate hydraulic oil via closable openings. In the process, the oil first flows through a shut-off valve and then through a check valve. After these two stations, the hydraulic oil is pressurized to the required operating pressure. This allows the hydraulic oil to flow effortlessly through a closed system. Depending on the size of the hydraulic system, coolers, sight glasses or electronic level sensors, safety valves, filters or sensors for quality monitoring are used.
In addition to legal guidelines, fluid tanks must meet a wide range of requirements. In daily use, hydraulic tanks are constantly exposed to mechanical loads, vibrations and temperature fluctuations. The strength requirements are also further increased by complex geometries for maximum filling volume. In addition, NovaNox® hydraulic tanks offer protection against corrosion problems, optional integrated baffles and labyrinths, and the prevention of fatigue at the welds.
We only produce individual solutions for orders of at least 50 pieces
Customized hydraulic tanks
With our many years of experience as a Tier 1 supplier in tank technology, we develop and produce individual fluid tanks for manufacturers of machines, systems and vehicle technology. From simple to complex geometries, we realize hydraulic tanks for every installation situation with our modern manufacturing capabilities. NovaNox® hydraulic tanks are made of steel, stainless steel or aluminum.
NovaNox® hydraulic oil tanks are manufactured in the following variants: Steel hydraulic tanks, stainless steel hydraulic tanks or aluminum hydraulic tanks. These are thus always individually matched to the installation options. In this way, even particularly tight installation spaces are used effectively. At the same time, the filling volume of the hydraulic tank is utilized to the maximum. Possible filling volumes of the fluid tanks are, for example, 5 liters, 8 liters, 10 liters, 30 liters or even 60 liters. However, smaller or larger tanks can also be manufactured without any problems.
Cleaning and surface treatment of hydraulic tanks
Ensuring the cleanliness of your individual NovaNox® hydraulic reservoir is our top priority. The reservoirs are cleaned mechanically and with special adhesive cloths. After the leak test, the reservoir is vacuumed, shaken and tapped again. Finally, it can be rinsed out according to the customer's wishes, but this is not recommended, as particles can be pressed into crevices during rinsing.
Furthermore, NovaNox® can perform the following surface treatments:
+ Powder coating
+ Pickling and passivation
+ Salt spray test
+ Other surface treatment after customer consultation
Steel hydraulic tanks
The NovaNox® steel hydraulic reservoirs are installed in the hydraulic system of machines, equipment or vehicles, such as in trucks or tractors. The hydraulic systems handle the power, energy and signal transmissions. In most cases, hydraulics are operated with a fluid, hydraulic oil. Accordingly, NovaNox® hydraulic tanks store the required hydraulic oil. As they are exposed to mechanical stresses, vibrations and the fluctuating temperatures on a daily basis, they have to meet a variety of requirements.
Through our years of tank expertise, we have developed modern manufacturing capabilities that make it possible to adapt NovaNox® steel hydraulic tanks to any installation situation. This also includes making effective use of particularly tight installation spaces and ensuring that the tank's maximum filling volume is utilized. As a system supplier, we provide you with ready-to-install system solutions. This also includes the respective components, such as tank caps, gauges, sensors or fuel filters. As part of this component procurement, we take care of deadline monitoring, quality control and final assembly, so that the accuracy of fit is increased to a maximum.
Stainless steel hydraulic tanks
Stainless steel hydraulic oil reservoirs from NovaNox® are part of the hydraulic system of machines, equipment and vehicles. Hydraulic systems are responsible for the transmission of energy, power and signals. Since hydraulic systems are normally operated with hydraulic oil, the tanks are an elementary component. They store the hydraulic oil and dispense it when required. In daily use, NovaNox® stainless steel hydraulic tanks are exposed to mechanical stresses, vibrations and temperature differences and must therefore meet a wide range of requirements.
In the past, thanks to our tank expertise, we have developed modern manufacturing capabilities that allow stainless steel hydraulic tanks to be adapted to any installation situation. It does not matter whether simple or complex designs are required. These manufacturing possibilities enable us to effectively utilize even particularly narrow installation spaces and additionally to increase the volume of the tanks to a maximum. Components are also part of our ready-to-install system solutions. Tank caps, gauges, sensors as well as fuel filters are part of our product range and can be installed directly. To make the procurement process as convenient as possible, we take care of deadline monitoring, quality control and final assembly. By taking over these processes, we can also increase the accuracy of fit to a maximum and minimize the final assembly time.
Aluminum hydraulic tanks
NovaNox® aluminum hydraulic tanks are an elementary component in the hydraulic systems of machines, plants and vehicles. The hydraulic systems namely take over the power, energy and signal transmissions and are mostly operated with hydraulic oil. In these systems, the aluminum fluid tanks act as a bearing and extraction point. Due to the mechanical stresses, vibrations and fluctuating temperatures that tanks must withstand on a daily basis, they must meet a variety of requirements.
Through our expertise in tanks & accessories, we have developed modern manufacturing capabilities that allow us to easily respond to any installation situation. It does not matter whether a simple or more complex variant is required. Our goal is always to make effective use of even complex installation spaces and to exploit the maximum filling volume of our tanks. As a system supplier, we cover all tier levels, so that we can also supply the components for the tank technology, if required. You receive your ready-to-install system solution with tank cap, gauges, sensors or fuel filters. Within the scope of this component procurement, we take over the deadline monitoring, quality control and final assembly in order to increase the fitting accuracy to a maximum. At the same time, the assembly time of the final assembly is reduced to a minimum.
In addition to the standard variants of hydraulic tanks, we have specialized in special lightweight tanks. Here, the tank is provided with a high-quality and very thin layer of sheet steel or aluminum. This allows the weight to be significantly reduced, which is particularly important for automotive and aerospace applications. These high weight savings in fact reduce fuel consumption, which at the same time ensures savings in operating costs.
Despite this special lightweight construction, the NovaNox® hydraulic oil tanks do not lose stability. Our own welding process planning is responsible for this.
