Edbro is introducing a new hydraulic valve for tipping trucks, which will allow faster lowering than was previously possible. This will lead to a quicker turnaround time of tipping operations and therefore increased productivity.

Edbro, a member of the JOST World since 2012, is a highly regarded leader in the manufacture of on-vehicle hydraulics systems. It maintains its position at the forefront of the tipping market by always working to increase payloads, reduce tipping times and provide “fit and forget” solutions that require little or no servicing over their entire working life.

Replacing the incumbent CT range of valves, the UT valve is completely interchangeable with the older part. This 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, comments: “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.”
