We have to get our test leg running within the next couple of months, this means we will need a hydraulic power pack. The pack will need to run one leg, which should require up to 160bar at 25lpm. We have made some enquiries to hire a power pack, which would cost about £100 per month for the size of unit we need. We will need the pack for at least 4 weeks, probably more like 8, so I have been looking in to the cost of buying a pack. To my surprise we can purchase a 7.5Kw power pack with 27 lpm @ 150 bar for about £800.
Purchasing a pack will mean we can use it whenever we need it and for as long as we need, and no doubt it will be a great asset to have n the company.
