Custom manifold blocks
24 April 2008
A new series of compact custom manifold blocks (CMB) from Sterling Hydraulics have been designed so that hydraulic services and electro-proportional control of clutches in transmission systems can be centralized. Claimed by the manufacturer to be easier to install and more compact than conventional piped hydraulic assemblies, the units can be fitted with accumulators, gauges and filters to eliminate separate mounting and piping. The CMBs are machined from a single block of aluminium alloy, steel or cast iron and are rated for a minimum of one million cycles at full working pressure. They are supplied fully assembled and tested.
