Rexroth's SILENCE PLUS external gear pump has been named the overall winner at the Huber Publishing House Industry Prize after impressing judges with its innovative noise-reducing performance.
The Rexroth SILENCE PLUS won over judges with its new generation technology which reduces noise levels by an average of 15dB (A) in comparison to conventional gear pumps. It is also characterised by a much deeper sound which is more comfortable for the machine operator. This provides cost savings through the elimination of secondary noise reduction measures.
Roger Benton, Marketing Manager for Bosch Rexroth, said: "Taking the top title at the Industry Prize is testament to the strength of this product. By using the SILENCE PLUS our customers can meet legally prescribed noise limits, whilst the Rexroth name ensures high efficiency and a long service life."
The SILENCE PLUS is ideal for use in applications with electric motor drives such as fork lifts, lift platforms or industrial power units. The SILENCE PLUS is compatible with all other Rexroth external gear pumps for ease of retrofit.
