The Hytec Group was recently appointed as a distributor of the Dabeb-Elram range of electro-hydraulic actuators. Effective December 2016, the agreement enables the Group to take Dabeb-Elram’s DEA range of electro-hydraulic actuators to the doorstep of sub-Saharan Africa’s major operations through its distribution network. Established over 48 years ago in Daleside, Johannesburg, Dabeb-Elram specialises in the manufacture of electro-hydraulic actuators that can be found in the majority of South Africa’s power stations and refineries, as well as in major mining operations around the world.
With the DEA range, all actuator components, including the cylinder, motor, pump, pipework and valves, are enclosed in a self-contained steel casing. “This creates many benefits for our clients,” says Nathan Pearce, Executive Director, Dabeb-Engineering. “As it is a sealed unit, it is protected from external contaminants and tampering, while its robust steel casing makes it ideal for the harshest operating environments.”
This ‘plug-and-play’ functionality also effectively reduces the requirement for client commissioning time and, in addition, its compact design enables a closer-mounting solution to almost any linear application. The DEA range also features a pressure relief and flow control valve that enables versatile and flexible performance in terms of speed and force.
All Dabeb-Elram electro-hydraulic actuators are manufactured at the company’s 1 500 m2 facility on a case-by-case basis, according to clients’ unique specifications. Dabeb-Elram also offers full repair and refurbishment of its electro-hydraulic actuators, no matter its age or condition
“As Dabeb-Elram is one of the country’s leading suppliers of electro-hydraulic actuators, whose sole focus is on the development, manufacture and supply of this particular product range, our clients benefit from the highest quality product that is backed by nearly 50 years of in-field application knowledge and experience,” comments Freddie Kühn, Regional Manager, Hytec. “And as a true testament to the longevity of both its brand and product, Dabeb-Elram has relied on the product endorsing itself for the past 48 years.
Speaking on the decision to partner with the Hytec Group, Pearce comments: “Not only is the Hytec Group Africa’s largest hydraulics company that is well-positioned to grow our product in sub-Saharan Africa, but our companies are also aligned in our commitment to the highest-quality product and to finding a solution to any application.
The Dabeb-Elram range of DEA electro-hydraulic actuators is available with a one-year warranty, and is now available through the Hytec Group’s network of 35 branches throughout sub-Saharan Africa.
