Frequently asked questions about the use of OMFB hydraulic components

OMFB is an Italian company founded in 1951 by three Bianchi brothers: Nicolo, Umberto and Alessandro, the OMFB brand is an abbreviation of the impoverishing name of the Bianchi brothers.

OMFB manufactures and exports hydraulic components for mobile applications, OMFB has gone from a small garage to a modern 30,000 m 2 plant   with the latest equipment and advanced technology.

Italian hydraulics are deservedly considered the best in the world and there are many reasons for this. One of the most important reasons is the human factor. OMFB is a family business, and the professionals who work at OMFB have been honing their skills for decades and carefully passing on their knowledge to their receivers, often through labor dynasties. The company’s management attaches great importance to the quality of products, which is confirmed by ISO 9001 certificates. Since 1968, OMFB has participated in the largest European exhibitions and specialized events and regularly confirms the quality of its products.

In the world, OMFB’s interests are represented by a network of authorized dealers whose specialists are trained and have access to the technical information required for the professional selection of hydraulic components. In Ukraine, the interests of OMFB are represented by HYDROTRANS LLC, the company’s office and warehouses are located in Boryspil near Boryspil International Airport.

WHAT IS NECESSARY FOR SELECTION OF A HYDRAULIC PUMP?

In order to choose the right hydraulic pump, the following initial data is required:

– Connecting standard UNI or ISO (number of connecting holes and number of sending shaft);

– Productivity l / min;

– Working pressure;

– Direction of rotation of the shaft (counterclockwise or clockwise);

– Type of pump (gear or axial-piston);

– Applicability (dump truck, crane manipulator), it affects the choice of pump type

WHAT IS NECESSARY FOR SELECTION OF POWER SELECTION BOX (POWER)?

– Signboard (plate) with checkpoint;

– Information that the COM actuates: Pump (required information on the ISO or UNI connection standard) or cardan flange;

– Information on the ISO and UNI connection standard (number of connection holes and number of shafts);

HOW MUCH WILL THE READY HYDRAULIC KIT FOR HYDROFICATION OF THE TRACTOR IN THE DUMP COST?

There is no concept of “ready dump truck”, each kit is selected individually from the following data:

– purpose (dump truck, manipulator, garbage truck, grain truck, etc.);

– Checkpoint model, indicating its gear ratio (photo sign)

– Pressure in the system;

– Productivity l / min;

– Tank volume in liters;

– tank material (steel, aluminum, stainless steel);

– Location of the tank (side or behind the cabin);

IS IT POSSIBLE TO INSTALL THE HYDRAULIC COMPONENT ”  OMFB  ” ON A CAR MANUFACTURED BY CIS COUNTRIES?

The development of technology in the USSR followed a path of development that differed significantly from abroad, which led to the creation of its own norms and standards, which are not compatible with Western models. OMFB is focused on the CIS market, thanks to which hydraulic components designed specifically for cars of the CIS countries have been developed, which has allowed to supply OMFB products to the conveyors of MAZ and KAMAZ car plants. Currently, the specialists of Hydrotrans LLC can select the required hydraulic component (power take-offs, hydraulic pumps: gears, axial-piston, etc.) for any model of a truck made in the CIS.

Regarding the comparative cost of Italian hydraulics and hydraulics produced in the CIS countries. It can be said that OMFB hydraulics will be more expensive than hydraulic components manufactured in the CIS countries, China and Turkey, but this comparison is initially incorrect. Take, for example, the OMFB hydraulic pump, with a cast iron housing and self-compensation system that ensures stable operation throughout its service life and a budget option that begins to lose catastrophically in intensive use, which in turn leads to downtime and repairs.

Knowing the cost of 1 hour of operation (for example, renting commercial equipment), 1 hour of repair and 1 hour of downtime, as well as the total period of practical operation by simple calculations will be clear advantage (including financial) of branded Italian hydraulics “OMFB”.

IS IT POSSIBLE TO USE OMFB HYDRAULIC COMPONENTS TOGETHER WITH COMPONENTS FROM OTHER MANUFACTURERS, FOR  EXAMPLE  CIS?

So it is possible, for similar purposes OMFB engineers have developed adapters-adapters which allow to use OMFB components with components of production of the CIS. For example, hydraulic pump NSH and power take-off “OMFB” and vice versa. This is especially important for companies that have their own fleet, such as utilities, which can carry out the gradual modernization of cars.

ON THE CAR (Garbage truck) THERE WAS A BREAKDOWN OF THE POWER SELECTION BOX, THE DRIVER WENT WITH THE COMA ON, HOW CAN WE AVOID THIS?

For this purpose in the range of OMFB products there are joysticks, COM buttons with the indicator of inclusion of disconnection of COM which allow to avoid similar breakdowns.

            HOW TO ENSURE THE SIMULTANEOUS WORK OF TWO CONSUMER HYDRAULICS (PRESSING SHOVEL AND LIFTING TANK MECHANISM) ON THE GARBAGE TRUCK?

                TANDEM hydraulic gears and OMFB axial piston TWIN FLOW pumps are used for these purposes. gear pumps “OMFB” and axial-piston pumps OMFB, with the help of these pumps 2 separate streams of hydraulic liquids are created.

DO I NEED TO LIFT THE BODY ON A LOW-LOAD LOADER, BUT THERE IS NO POSSIBILITY TO CONNECT THE POWER SELECTION BOX AT THE CHECK?

                Currently, the conversion of GAZelle and GAZelle NEXT into a dump truck is very important, which is due to the increase in gasoline prices and the growing demand for light transportation (construction materials, coal, firewood, etc.). At the same time on GAZelle cars there is no possibility of selection of power from the check point, in this case oil power plants 12/24 which allow to provide rise of a body of the car without use of a box of selection of power are applied. In this case, OMFB hydraulic components will be useful to GAZelle car owners who need a GAZelle dump truck. Also OMFB hydraulic components are necessary for HUNDRED which are engaged in repair of GAZelle cars, OMFB experts will help to carry out individual selection of the dumping set for GAZelles, under the client’s task.
