Micron Hydraulics was established in 1984 and is now a market leader in the repair and refurbishment of hydraulic components. Specialising in piston pump and hydraulic motor repairs for over 28 years, Micron Hydraulics Ltd is now a respected stamp of quality assurance within the industry. Micron has invested heavily in related areas so that they can offer comprehensive hydraulic overhauls for complete machines, vane pump repairs, cylinder and valve refurbishment, fully supported by their team of multi-skilled hydraulic service engineers. Micron also invests heavily in a continuous in-house training programme and seeks out new areas of investment to stay at the forefront of the market so that customers have the best possible chance of keeping downtime "down"!
Tested to extreme standards
Micron prides theirselves on delivering unrivalled quality hydraulic pump repairs tested to extreme standards, on time and in budget. Micron has one of the most powerful and comprehensive hydraulic pump and motor test facilities currently available. The facility is fully computerised using the latest data analysis equipment. The available power of the test stand exceeds that required to test the largest hydraulic pumps currently manufactured to OEM specifications. All procedures carried out are done so via the most stringent quality procedures with state-of-the-art, geographical test reports showing overall performances and efficiency.
You name it, we can do it
In our strip and build workshop we receive units in various conditions and from various customers. The units go through a process of being stripped, cleaned, inspected, re- cleaned and reassembled. Our custom built 450 horsepower test facility is capable of varying test speeds up to 1,800 RPM, along with analysing multiple ports simultaneously, at loads up to 6,000 PSI. Whether for Agricultural, Civil Engineering, Industrial, Marine, Mining, Mobile, Quarrying, Rail or Recycling - you name it, we can do it. Whether it's an open or closed loop pump, motor, or valve, our state of the art test facilities certify that all hydraulic components which leave Micron are set to original manufacturers' published specifications, and in a simulated working condition for the setting of automotive, constant horsepower, and electro-hydraulic control systems; assuring the customer that their unit, when installed, will perform the way it is supposed to.
Close relationships with KTR
Micron has established close relationships with the leading hydraulic suppliers in the world such as KTR. Units and parts are sourced direct, reducing costs and delivery dates. KTR products, such as coolers, bell housing and ROTEX®, are applied daily in our services because Micron relies on genuine and high quality products to integrate perfectly with all other components and requirements. And also, KTR is a lot like Micron, constantly in motion and headed forward. KTR know that the challenges their clients are facing are there to be solved. High-performance coolers with special dipping paint KTR's cooling systems were developed for stationary hydraulics and mobile machines. The application range of high-performance coolers is mainly cooling of hydraulic oil, but also cooling of water, charge air or fuel. The cooling systems are individually designed, each depending on the application and taking into account the cooling power required, and adapted to the mounting space, if necessary. Bell housings optimise motor and pump shaft alignment One of the nice things is the ease with which accurate selections can be made using KTR's Hydraulic Selection Tools - choosing the right components to connect motor and pump is a very simply process. Depending on the individual application additional components such as damping elements and foot flanges can also be added. Equipped with temperature resistant T-PUR® spiders ROTEX® couplings are characterized by small dimensions, low weight and low mass moments of inertia yet transmit high torques. Running quality and service life of the coupling are improved by accurate all-over machining. Their application is ideal for transmitting torque while damping torsional vibrations and absorbing shocks produced by the uneven operation of certain prime movers.
