HydrauLogic has developed products that are in use in the following areas:Much has been done in difficult applications where safety is of paramount importance. Hazardous and harsh environments e.g. coalmines, off-shore gas and defence, in many cases require certification and special materials.
Except for these areas HydrauLogic provide WANDFLUH products to a wide range of applications throughout Australia and to some extent to Asia and the Pacific region.
HydrauLogic has delivered valve packages and individual valves to the mining industry during several years. HydrauLogic solutions for roof bolters are in use on many units with several different customers.
Continuous mining - Valve packages for the roof bolters
Long wall mining - Stainless steel valve package for the roof bolter
The introduction of electric control in mining requires explosion proof components. HydrauLogic has obtained Australian certification for Ex d I/IIC solenoid valves suitable for use in Australian coal mines. These include proportional reliefs and reducers, DCV's, spool and poppet valves.
Individual valves and also complete hydraulic solutions of various kinds are delivered to many Australian companies.
Underwater service work using remotely operated underwater vehicles (ROV's) is becoming more common not only for oil rigs but also for the research for minerals below the deep sea floor. The use of hydraulics under water is therefore increasing. The underwater conditions require special consideration for the hydraulics. Except for material considerations, pressure compensating the actuators could be necessary.

Special cranes requiring special valve packages.
Ocean drill rig
Zinc plated valves are used by a customer on ocean drill rig cranes. These valves are located 30m above the hydraulic reservoir requiring special circuitry to avoid cavitation.
Stainless steel valves are used in use for cargo control on one FPSO vessel stationed in the Timor Sea.
HydrauLogic has delivered hydraulic equipment to defence contractors. Although the operation in a real situation is expected to be short, frequent training demands sturdy and safe operation of the equipment.
