The growing world population and urbanization creates an ongoing demand for more infrastructure and mined resources. Danfoss offers a large range of solutions for mining equipment, even in some of the most challenging production environments. With the addition of the D1 pump to our Open Circuit portfolio, we are able to provide more options for the toughest mining applications. The D1 pump can be paired with the PVG valves, along with other Danfoss products to meet the needs of your machine.
Work functions - drilling, positioning, slewing: Use D1 pumps paired with PVG valves to provide flow to the different work functions of the machine such as drilling, drill positioning, and slewing. Limit pump torque consumption by using mechanical torque control in the D1 pump or maximize engine and pump capacity using the new electric displacement control, which allows you to control the displacement of the pump with electric current.
Propel: Use D1 pumps paired with PVG valves and H1 bent axis motors for the propel function. Drilling and propel functions are not actuated concurrently, eliminating the need for a dedicated propel pump in the circuit. The higher flow ratings of the D1 pump allows you to use a single pump for your whole system.
Electronic solutions: Easy operator interface can be achieved with the Danfoss range of PLUS+1® controls, including modular joysticks from the JS-1 family, rugged DP700 displays, PLUS+1® Connect to send data back to headquarters, and our PLUS+1® SC dual-processor microcontrollers with piggy-back processor for redundant control in a total electric control system package. All of Danfoss’ products are PLUS+1® Compliant. Danfoss’ PLUS+1® Platform provides preprogrammed and tested blocks, which allows all products in your hydraulic system to work more effectively together and reduce programming time while increasing system flexibility.
