PT SERIES ALUMINUM HYDRAULIC UPRIGHT TANKS (RESERVOIR):
Aluminum hydraulic tanks for trucks and reservoirs are offered in different volumes and installation settings. Side mount, saddle type or upright and behind the cab make all configurations covered. Sight glass, magnetic drain plugs and extra air breathers come as standard.
HYDRAULIC TANK APPLICATIONS:
Combined with any of our wide range of PE series eaton fuller PTO, PIM series Volvo I-Shift/Mack mDrive PTO, PA series hot shift PTO for AISIN and ALLISON automatic transmissions, hydraulic pumps, dump pumps, gear pumps or bent axis piston pumps, it can power your hydraulic wet line or equipment on dump trucks, dump trailer, end dumps, live bottoms, shuttle floor, float, walking floors and combo systems.

Standard model numbers: PTR2435, PTR2440, PTR2450, PTR2475, PTU2575
The hydraulic fluid reservoir holds excess hydraulic fluid so to accommodate volume changes from cylinder extension, contraction, temperature driven expansion, contraction and leaks. The reservoir is also designed to aid in separation of air from the fluid and also work as a heat accumulator to cover losses in the system when peak power is used. Design engineers are always pressured to reduce the size of hydraulic reservoirs however equipment operators always appreciate larger reservoirs. In addition Reservoirs can also help separate dirt and other particulate from the oil because the particulate will generally settle to the bottom of the tank. Moreover some designs include dynamic flow channels on the fluid’s return path so that to allow for a smaller reservoir.
