MTS Announces Its Most Efficient Hydraulic Power Unit Ever Produced

EDEN PRAIRIE, MN -- MTS Systems Corporation announces release of the SilentFlo 515 Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU). This new model builds upon a long history of industry-leading HPU technology, and offers even greater energy efficiency and reduced total cost of ownership.

Originally released in 1998, the MTS SilentFlo line features some of the quietest HPUs available on the market today, and this new pump is even quieter than the previous model. In addition, the new SilentFlo 515 model is up to 8% more energy efficient than its predecessors, while maintaining a compact footprint and easy access for operation and maintenance.

"MTS has led the market in hydraulic knowledge and expertise," states Dr. Bill Bachrach, Senior Vice President and General Manager, MTS Test. "The development and release of this product demonstrates continued innovation and leadership in hydromechanical technologies."

The new power unit offers smart monitoring capabilities, as well as new power modules, manifolds, and cooling options.
