USA: Page Macrae Engineering Selects Eaton Components for Its Cargo Handling Equipment

Page Macrae Engineering of Mount Maunganui, New Zealand, Australasia’s leading manufacturer of ship cargo handling equipment, has selected Eaton components to help improve reliability, as well operation and safety, of the grab-control system of its Diesel Hydraulic Series grabs.

Operated via remote control by a ship’s crane operator, the grabs discharge bulk material from a ship’s hold with the aid of an Eaton F(x)™ electrohydraulic system featuring a mobile control valve, piston pump, controller, screw-in cartridge valves, hose and fittings, and filtration products.

Eaton’s total system package and seamless component supply were instrumental in the business win, along with the capability of the Eaton integrated control/hydraulic system package to facilitate a two-stage, bucket-opening process that reduces losses in windy conditions and enables the engine to slide out quickly for maintenance and repairs.

Eaton is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and marketing of a comprehensive line of reliable, high-efficiency hydraulic systems and components for use in mobile and stationary applications. Mobile and stationary markets include agriculture, alternative energy, construction, forestry, manufacturing, material handling, mining, oil and gas, processing, transportation and utility equipment. Eaton’s Hydraulics Group provides customer-driven solutions under product names such as Aeroquip®, Boston®, Char-Lynn®, Eaton®, Hydrokraft®, Hydrowa®, Hydro-Line®, Integrated Hydraulics®, Synflex®, Vickers®, Walterscheid™, and Weatherhead®.
