New Solar Battery Storage System installed at CC Hydraulics

Continuing with our environmental commitments we have now installed a 50KW battery storage system that allows the company to collect and store the solar energy that’s being generated over the weekends and days that we are not at work. This means we can be off grid for longer periods so both reducing our costs and our carbon footprint still further.

Environmental Commitment

 Resource Efficient Business (REBiz)At C&C Hydraulics we believe in playing our part in protecting our environment and reducing emissions.

As part of this principle we have enacted various upgrades to the way we operate our company.

All lighting inside the factory and offices is LED and we now use infrared heaters instead of gas, our new forklift and hydraulic lifters are all electric instead of gas and to complete the project we have just installed a 53KW solar system which will reduce the companies carbon output by an estimated 9 tons per year.

  • 12vDC power pack pre wired 2 button control & plastic cover for the electric motor
  • Pre assembled RH & LH cast steel rear hinge assemblies
  • Lower mounting bracket
  • Upper mounting bracket

Hydraulic Hinge Systems – Hydra Hinge

C&C Hydraulics have developed 2 hydraulically driven hinge systems these can be used to open and close roofs and doors on mobile or static applications.

The first and simplest system is the Hydra Hinge which uses a heavy duty hydraulic motor with an integral disk brake and dual counter balance valve, this drives the hinge system directly via a drive flange, the advantage of this system is it's low cost and it's simplicity and time taken to install. The system can be powered by an existing hydraulic supply from either a tractor or PTO pump or we can supply a dedicated power pack with a blue tooth remote control system which has been preconfigured and comes prewired with a potted junction box.

The second system is the Hydra Hinge 2 this uses a powerful thru rod cylinders and duplex chain to drive the hinge system, this is an offset drive with the cylinders being mounted inboard, see attached layout drawings. Again dual counterbalance valves are used to provide geometric control and lock down and the system can be driven by an existing hydraulic supply or by a our dedicated power pack and blue tooth control.

Complete hydraulic beaver tail ramp system

C&C Hydraulics can now offer complete hydraulic beavertail systems for plant carrying trailers and commercial vehicles.
The hydraulic cylinder rods are produced from 431 stainless steel to prevent corrosion whilst travelling extended, the system can be operated by manual lever control valves or by blue tooth remote control.
There are 2 main systems available, the first is the traditional vertical beavertail system where the ramps rotate from a 90 degree position down to ground level, the second is the cheese wedge style beavertail where the ramps fold down level to the body of the vehicle so reducing drag on the vehicle while driving and also creating a larger platform area to load.
