Hydra Fluid System
Base Unit: Low pressure pump in Base Unit, maintains a constant 2.5 bar pressure in the fluid pipe supplying the heads, independent of the number of heads turned on. Maximum head fluid consumption 120mL/minute. The system is factory calibrated for 2 fluid types selected from base unit (plus cleaning fluid). New mode for cleaning fluid can be used. Automatic leak detection will be implemented.
Heads: Standard pump (EP5), increases the 2.5 bar inlet pressure to 16 bar. Solenoid valve ensures no fluid EURoepuffsEUR out after firing, and avoids fluid running backwards, causing delays when firing next time. Maximum installed height above base unit is 20m for a maximum fluid pipe run of 60m from the base unit (assumes 10mm o/d tube). Longer runs are possible if the height is reduced, up to a maximum of 120m. With a central base unit, heads can be 240m apart at most (for 0m height above base unit).
