Eaton launches Hydre-MAC motor

Hydre-MAC piston motor.

The Hydre-MAC motor, created using a MacTaggart Scott heavy-duty motor design, combines MacTaggart Scott’s motor expertise with Eaton’s extensive industry knowledge, particularly in oil and gas, mining and manufacturing applications.

“The Hydre-MAC motor provides efficient, reliable and serviceable power at a low cost of ownership,” said Andreas Kling, product marketing manager, Eaton. “Additionally, Eaton’s global network of distributors with product and technology expertise and system design capability have the resources to quickly meet market demand to ensure critical operations are running optimally at all times.”

The motor increases component life with two inlet and outlet ports reducing pressure drops at high power; by generating less heat overall; and through a symmetrical 18 piston/roller assembly design, which eliminates piston side-loading and reduces wear and tear.

To help customers maximize uptime—a crucial element to successful operations, the Hydre-MAC motor is a direct drop-in replacement for the industry’s most installed motor, reducing switching costs by eliminating the need to replace the machine shaft and torque arm.
