Our range of bottle jacks provide several benefits:
Sometimes called a high lift jack, this range provides all capabilities of conventional bottle jacks but with a super-long stroke, eliminating the need to lift, crib and lift. In most applications, the lift can be completed after a single jack placement.
Specifically designed for lower clearance jobs, this bottle jack incorporates all features and lifting capacities of standard jacks, but in short form.
Designed for both lifting and pushing applications in the industrial sector and includes screw extensions for use in vertical, angled or horizontal positions. The range includes a 20 ton bottle jack.
Retracted height of just 63,5 mm for the smallest jack and 130,2 mm for the 20 ton version.
In addition to Hytec’s range of Power Team bottle jacks, the range includes toe jacks; and other jacks and jack maintenance solutions.
The range allows users access under equipment with 27 mm ground clearance only. It includes toe jacks and economy toe jacks, both at economical pricing. There are 2 variations in this niche range.
Smooth lowering and reduced bounce from Hytec’s portable high tonnage jacks, inflatable jacks using water or non-explosive gas, single and double acting post-tension and stressing jacks, sidewinder mini jacks and maintenance sets make up this range.
Customers outside of South Africa, but residing within the sub-continent southern Africa, also have access to the Group’s world-leading hydraulic, pneumatic and automation product ranges. These are available via the Group’s Operations and Distribution Centres located throughout Africa. All 24 brands offered by the Group, as well as every solution-based service that the Bosch Rexroth South Africa Group of Companies provides, are distributed continent-wide.
Hydraulic jacks have 6 primary components – reservoir, pump, check valve, main cylinder, piston, and release valve.
The release valve opens for the piston to return to the start position, releasing the pressure, and fluid returns to the reservoir
Hydraulic jacks operate on a two-cylinder system, so their workings are based on the Pascal Principle. This principle states that pressure in a closed container will be the same at all points.
By connecting 2 cylinders and applying force to the smaller of the 2 cylinders using liquid to push against the piston, the larger cylinder will receive the same amount of pressure as that of the smaller cylinder.
However, as an increase in area means an increase in force, so the force in the larger cylinder will be much more than that in the smaller cylinder.
Our hydraulic jacks are manufactured exclusively by Power Team, a worldwide supplier of hydraulic and mechanical tools, and fully supported across sub-Saharan Africa by Hytec. A range of jack designs are available, which provide reliable and robust solutions for lifting, pushing and spreading applications in Africa’s mining, construction and industrial sectors.
