Enhance Vehicle Functionality with Our Hydraulic Wet Kits - Optimized Power for Every Task

A hydraulic wet kit is a comprehensive hydraulic system installed on a vehicle, commonly a truck or a trailer, to provide the necessary hydraulic power for various auxiliary equipment or systems. The term "wet kit" signifies that it includes a hydraulic fluid reservoir, distinguishing it from a "dry kit" that lacks this component.

Here are the key components of a hydraulic wet kit:

  1. Hydraulic Pump: The pump is a critical component that converts mechanical power from the vehicle's engine into hydraulic power. It creates the necessary pressure to drive the hydraulic system.
  2. Hydraulic Reservoir: This reservoir serves as a storage tank for hydraulic fluid. It ensures a consistent and adequate supply of fluid for the hydraulic system and helps dissipate heat generated during operation.
  3. Control Valves: These valves control the flow and direction of hydraulic fluid. They are crucial for regulating the operation of hydraulic cylinders, motors, or other hydraulic-driven equipment.
  4. Hydraulic Hoses and Fittings: These components form the hydraulic lines that connect the pump, reservoir, control valves, and the equipment being powered. They transport the hydraulic fluid between different parts of the system.
  5. Power Take-Off (PTO): The PTO is a mechanical device that connects directly to the vehicle's engine. It allows the engine to transfer power to the hydraulic pump, enabling the hydraulic system to operate independently of the vehicle's movement.
  6. Filters and Cooling Systems: Hydraulic wet kits often include filters to keep the hydraulic fluid clean and cooling systems to prevent overheating. This helps maintain the efficiency and longevity of the hydraulic components.

Applications of hydraulic wet kits include:

  • Dump Trucks and Trailers: For raising and lowering the dump body.
  • Vacuum Trucks: For powering vacuum pumps and other hydraulic-driven components.
  • Tow Trucks: For operating winches and booms.
  • Cranes: For controlling the various hydraulic functions of truck-mounted cranes.
  • Car Carriers: For tilting or sliding deck movements.
  • Concrete Mixers: For controlling the rotation of the mixing drum.

Hydraulic wet kits provide flexibility and versatility, allowing vehicles to perform a wide range of tasks by powering auxiliary equipment with hydraulic capabilities. They are crucial in industries where hydraulic power is required for specific functions beyond the primary propulsion of the vehicle.
