Thanks to its innovative ideas, Dynaset has become the world leader in the power use of hydraulics over the past quarter century. Its compact hydraulic equipment offers an unbeatable power-to-size ratio and saves users time, effort, and money.

The key idea behind Dynaset’s products is to draw power from the hydraulic system of machines such as excavators, tractors, fire engines, harvesters, and trucks and transform it very efficiently into electricity, high-pressure water, compressed air, magnetic force, and vibration. This enables two jobs to be done using one machine, resulting in greater productivity and efficiency without extra machines or additional emissions.

Unbeatable power-to-size ratio

Dynaset’s units are up to four times smaller than alternative similarly rated products. Its HWG200 hydraulic welding generator, for example, is the world’s smallest and lightest unit of its type, yet still capable of providing plenty of welding power and high-quality auxiliary electricity. While the tiny HPW200 power washer, the size of a standard brick, can generate up to 200 bars of pressure and spray 30 litres of water a minute, which is phenomenal for a unit of its size.

Dynaset’s hydraulic generators can be connected to any type of hydraulic system easily and reliably and operate simultaneously with other hydraulic equipment. As a result, they can provide on-site electricity for power tools and appliances, work lights, pumps, and air-conditioning units. They guarantee stable voltage and frequency, regardless of whether a truck or boat engine is idling or running at full speed, and are ideal as compact power supplies for things such as temperature-controlled containers and on-board electricity. Other solutions are available for hydraulic magnet generators and welding generators.

Compact and lightweight

The innovative construction of Dynaset’s high-pressure hydraulic pumps results in excellent durability and guarantees a steady flow of liquid at high pressure for use in multiple applications, such as street washing, pipe cleaning, dust suppression, hydroscaling, fire fighting, and flushing drilling fluids.

Thanks to their compact and lightweight design, Dynaset’s hydraulic piston and rotary vane compressors are also perfect for replacing old-fashioned towed compressor units and providing trouble-free compressed air for pneumatic tools, air flushing, filling tyres, and similar needs.

Dynaset’s advanced know-how in using hydraulics as a power source enables it to offer multiple additional solutions, such as hydraulic grinders, winches, power packs, and installation valves.

Dynaset equipment offers high performance and flexibility across a wide range of applications.

An international success story

The high quality and innovative nature of Dynaset’s products have won the company numerous customers in more than 40 countries, and the company has had its own sales office in China since 2006. Around 90% of output is exported: 70% directly and 20% through other manufacturers’ products featuring Dynaset equipment.

India is among the markets into which Dynaset has expanded recently. The added value, productivity, and versatility of its equipment have proved well-suited to a developing economy such as India’s.
