The power of hydraulics when there is no power

Load shedding is a reality that South Africans are forced to live with daily. Between whether trying to keep up with the different stages and planning when to cook, do the washing and send out important emails, living our lives according to the load shedding schedule can be exhausting.
The same applies to industries who need power to complete their work. Whether it is running computers or certain machinery, when there is no power there is no production and therefore no money. When industries make use of hydraulic equipment, when it comes to load shedding there are many benefits:

Emergency power: hydraulic systems can be powered by an independent hydraulic power unit, which can operate even if the main power source is unavailable. This allows hydraulic equipment to continue functioning during power outages, ensuring that critical processes can continue without interruption.

Energy efficiency: hydraulic systems are generally more energy-efficient than other types of mechanical systems, such as electric motors. This means that hydraulic systems require less power to perform the same amount of work, making them ideal for use during power outages or load shedding situations.

Durability: hydraulic systems are designed to withstand heavy loads and operate in harsh environments, making them well-suited for use in industrial applications where power outages can be frequent. Additionally, hydraulic systems have fewer moving parts than other types of mechanical systems, reducing the risk of mechanical failure.

Versatility: hydraulic systems can be used in a wide range of applications, from powering heavy machinery to controlling the movement of industrial equipment. This versatility makes hydraulic systems a valuable asses during power outages as they can be used to power wide range of equipment and processes.

Overall the use of hydraulic systems during load shedding or power outages can help to ensure that critical processes can continue without interruption, minimizing the impact of power disruptions on industrial operations.
