Equipment manufacturers

Using hydraulic manifolds in the production of equipment brings many benefits in addition to being custom-built to the manufacturer’s specific requirements:

  • Simplification of the entire hydraulic system
  • Reduction of components
  • Reduction of hoses and hydraulic connections
  • Drastic reduction of assembly time and labour
  • Reduction of potential hydraulic fluid leaks
  • Reduced bulk and weight
  • Reduction of spare parts
  • Ease of maintenance
  • Superior aesthetic design
  • Exclusivity of the manifold = market protection

Engineering consulting firms

GenHydrau’s engineering department is readily available for all complex outsourcing quotations or projects that require direct discussions from engineer to engineer, such as:

  • Standards and specifications
  • Procedures, implementation and project follow-up
  • Evaluation and quotations
  • Approval of schematics
  • Production of technical documentation
  • Design, production, assembly and tests
  • Delivery, installation and start-up

Mobile machinery

Manifolds are very often installed on mobile machinery to integrate many large and heavy components into a single compact unit that simplifies the entire system.

  • Mechanical street sweepers
  • Trucks with spray arms
  • Garbage trucks
  • Agricultural machinery
  • Forestry machinery
  • Drills
  • Loaders and forklifts
  • Etc.

Industrial machinery

Similarly to mobile machinery, manifolds can be installed on industrial machinery in order to integrate and simplify hydraulic system by minimizing the bulk and weight, as well as the number of hoses and connections that have a potential risk of leakage.

  • Plastic injection machines
  • Blow moulding machines
  • Presses
  • Machine tools
  • Dam valves
  • Lift tables
  • Waste compactors
  • Various production machines
  • Etc.


All ships are equipped with hydraulic systems and can benefit from hydraulic manifolds. They can be manufactured to resist saltwater and prolong their useful life.

  • Cranes
  • Winches and hoists
  • Conveyors
  • Hydraulic cylinders
  • Etc.
