Hybrid Actutation Systems Reduce Energy
Consumption and Maintenance Costs

Sorensen Systems has built a reputation as a integrator and rehabilitator of hydro, water and wasterwater installations. We are pleased to now offer Hybrid Actuator Systems (HAS), a newly launched product from Parker's cylinder division. As a high force self-contained linear actuation system, it brings electrification to where the work occurs. By localizing the power source, Hybrid Actuator Systems (HAS) eliminates the centralized power unit along with its electric motor, pump reservoir, and related valving, but also all the hoses and tubes connecting them to the actuator — dramatically reducing system complexity and simplifying troubleshooting. Instead, it consolidates the entire hydraulic system into a single component integral to the actuator that hooks up to a local control point.

Parker Hybrid Acutation System

Delivers 3x the power density of a traditional hydraulic system

Hybrid actuation systems have one-third the footprint of a equivalent hydraulic power unit. Compared to a 10 HP hydraulic power unit, which typically occupies 6.6 cubic feet, the HAS 500 occupies just 1.9 cubic feet. The HAS 500 has a 2-1/2" bore, 1-3/8" rod, 24" stroke 4 GPM operating at 3000 PSI.

Saves energy by deploying incrementally as needed

The horespower losses that occur in valve-operated hydraulic systems are significantly reduced in hybrid actuation systems (HAS). In HAS, 72% of input power is available for work, compared to just 47% availability in a traditional hydraulic systems.

For this reason, energy consumption per cycle is significantly lower in hybrid actuation systems.

Features benefit customer's application

Designers and integrators who employ hybrid actuation systems help their customers reduce energy costs associated with operating their hydraulic systems. Additionally, maintenance costs and hours are reduced for the customer since the components absent in HAS (electric motor, pump reservoir, hydraulic lines, fittings) no longer require attention. Parker's HAS units can be operated maintenance free for at least 8,000 hours.
