Replacing its range of CT valves, Edbro has introduced the UT valve. Completely interchangeable with the older part, it ensures that vehicle operators can continue to maintain their existing hydraulic kits without any issue.
Like its predecessor, the UT valve increases safety during lowering and offers lightweight performance.
The UT range introduces an optimised internal oil flow which reduces flow restrictions. As a result, the maximum lowering speed of the valve has been increased, reducing the time taken per tipping cycle. While this will be appreciated by all users, it will be particularly useful in quarrying and other operations where multiple tippings are made each day – the time savings on each cycle adding up so that the trucks can complete more runs per shift.
Danny Broomfield, sales director for UK & Ireland, commented: “The Edbro slogan is Lighter, Faster, Stronger. We achieve these goals by maximising the performance capabilities of every components found in our systems. The introduction of the UT valve will play its part in making sure our customers have the fastest and safest tippers on the market.”
