Using fluid power components and assemblies in your product range?  Have no internal fluid power product or system design skills? Working in partnership with your design and procurement teams Yarl Hydracentre can fill that skills gap.

Yarl Hydracentre, backed by major fluid power component suppliers, are able to provide support to your new and current product development.

Our experienced procurement and engineering team can interpret your product needs, understand product differentiators, cost constraints and critical operating environments. We work with your team to optimise the fluid power component selection and system design.

ManifoldTypical benefits we can offer include the simplification of circuit design and sub assemblies eliminating reliability risks imposed by connectors, fittings and joints. Manifold mounted components simplify production, reduce cost and improve reliability. Yarl Hydracentre can assist in the provision of these solutions and deliver fully tested sub assemblies to your production line.


 Supply of component sub assemblies or kits can significantly reduce the number of components you manage, therefore reduce the number of suppliers, assembly and inspection / fault finding activities allowing you to focus on your core products and processes.  Kits can be delivered to suit your production volumes, inspected, bagged and labelled with your part numbers.

Competitive advantage is often difficult to achieve if you operate in a market where everyone uses the same standard components. Yarl Hydracentre can assist you in achieving that advantage by providing you with a differentiator whether it is cost, compact solution, technical performance or all three. We work closely with fluid power component manufacturers taking their standard components and with their assistance provide you with a unique component with at its core is their reliable proven technology. 



This valve was developed for operating train doors. Using Univer's patented 'mixed spool' technology to ensure long life and eliminate the possibility of sticking.


CylinderUniver's 'direct acting' solenoid valves and quick exhaust valves have been built into the body of this cylinder developed to change gears for formula 3000 racing cars.



Whether providing simple sub assembly kits consisting of multiple small components or providing product and system design Yarl Hydracentre can offer you services providing your products and production lines with a competitive advantage. For further information on these services please call....

Fluid Power Diagnostics Made Simple

PDF Print E-mail

Manual_OverideRexroth offer a very useful accessory designed to assist with hydraulic system fault finding and system commissioning. The manual override switch provides a means of actuating CETOP 3 solenoid valves without the need for tools required to operate the standard solenoid actuator. In addition the manual override, which can be fitted to the current range of Rexroth solenoid valves, provides a visual indication of the solenoid state. The manual override can be fitted to both single and double solenoid valves.


Supported by Bosch Rexroth and its extensive range of fluid power, mechanical and electronic components Yarl Hydracentre are able to maintain and develop your fluid power systems providing extensive diagnostic services, maintenance programmes, spare part provision and system design.

TurbineYarl Hydracentre's skilled team of fluid power technicians and engineers supported with a broad range of diagnostic tools are able to provide system analysis, provide cost effective and reliable solutions to support and develop your fluid power and related production processes.




DataloggerGraphDiagnostic tools can be applied to your systems capable of measuring and logging real time pressure, flow and temperature data identifying data spikes occurring in a fraction of a second. System faults not normally identified with conventional diagnostic tool can be isolated and eliminated.



      ICMICM_DataFurther diagnostic tools are available to measure fluid cleanliness, element composition and water content. This data interpreted by our skilled engineering teams can find the root cause of intermittent or repetitive system faults evading diagnosis from conventional tools and processes.   




Backed up by the Bosch Rexroth Bradford based repair, test and training facilities we are able to provide component repair and rebuild services at fixed costs and lead times. For those emergency breakdowns these services can provide short lead time component exchange recovering your production cost effectively.

New Gas Management Plant for BAe Systems Submarines

PDF Print E-mail


BAE Systems Submarine Solutions Dockside Test Organisation, based at Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria identified the requirement for a C02 Vaporiser Gas management system for use during the commissioning phase of the build for Astute Class Submarines.

The critical requirement of the process was to ensure only CO2 vapour is delivered to the submarine at temperature and pressure parameters which are very close to the state in which CO2 can exist in both the liquid and gas state.

Yarl Hydracentre engineers used their knowledge of fluid mechanics to clearly define these parameters for the range of test conditions expected to be experienced during the commissioning phase of the submarines. Having established the project scope, the fluid and gas circuits could be designed and the control logic and parameters defined.

The design employed a number of pressure and temperature sensors to provide inputs to the control plc and, in conjunction with a gas vaporiser, output signals sent to control valves ensuring only CO2 gas is output from the plant.

Complete_Assembly_2The plant included a scavenge pump designed to extract gas from the liquid CO2 bottles when the internal pressure dropped below the required output pressure. The pump automatically maintains the required gas output pressure using proportional valve technology in conjunction with the system plc. The Co2 bottle pressures are monitored and, when empty, the system automatically changes the supply to a second bottle providing BAe Systems with the 4 hour continuous delivery of gas they required.

The complete system was assembled in a compact cabinet at Yarl Hydracentre's Barrow facility. Following Yarl Hydracentre's own commissioning and test programme BAe Systems Dockside Test Facility engineers witnessed a comprehensive test programme at the Barrow facility which concluded with a full simulation of BAe's gas generation process, proving the full functionality of the plant.

Yarl Hydracentre is pleased to support this summer's headline exhibition, 'BBC Walking with Dinosaurs' at the Beacon, Whitehaven.

The BBC Walking with Dinosaurs Exhibition, based on the award-winning BBC TV series, looks at the science behind the series and tells you more about Dinosaurs and how they lived.

This blockbuster exhibition will include original scale models used to produce the digital animations, full sized Dinosaur replicas including the skull of Tyrannosaurus and Triceratops, as well as large format graphics from BBC originals and computer interactive games.

In conjunction with Sealey compressors Yarl Hydracentre are providing the compressed air systems used to power an animated exhibit allowing visitors to bring a dinosaur to 'life'.

The exhibition runs from the 11th June to the 4th September 2011.

For further information on compressed air systems from Yarl Hydracentre contact:
