Daman Standard and Custom Products

There are many factors that contribute to determining the correct material for your specific manifold application. The environment in which it will operate, application, working pressure, weight, and other variables all influence which material choice is the correct one. Daman offers most of their Standard Product Line in both 6061-T6 aluminum and Dura-Bar 65-45-12 continuous-cast ductile iron.  Great Lakes Hydraulics Ltd. has a vast inventory of Daman products in both Aluminum and Ductile Iron.  In addition to these materials, Daman has experience manufacturing Custom Products using 2024 aluminum, 7075 Aluminum, CR36 brass and various grades of carbon and stainless steel.

65-45-12 Ductile Iron
Improved machinability and longer tool life have led to reduced cost. Consistent grain structure and the absence of voids and inclusions have improved quality. Better surface finishes, increased vibration-dampening characteristics, reduction of burrs, increased strength and lighter weight have all resulted in improved product performance.

Mechanical Properties:

Tensile strength: 65,000 psi (min)
Yield strength: 45,000 psi (min)
Daman pressure rating: 5,000 psi (max)

Products Available in Ductile Iron
Manifolds, Cover Plates, Valve Adapters, Subplates, Tapping Plates, DIN Cartridge Valve Bodies, Header Blocks, Junction Blocks, Custom Products

6061-T6 Aluminum
Aluminum hydraulic components have been the mainstay of the Daman product line since 1976. Aluminum 6061-T6 provides you with consistent grain structure, reduced weight and excellent strength at an economical price.

Mechanical Properties:

Ultimate strength: 45,000 psi
Yield strength: 40,000 psi
Daman pressure rating: 3,000 psi (max)

Products Available in Aluminum (6061-T6)
Manifolds, Cover Plates, Valve Adapters, Subplates, Tapping Plates, DIN Cartridge Valve Bodies, Header Blocks, Junction Blocks, Custom Products

Clamping Systems

hydro-craft The WALKER-STRUT Clamp

Walker-Strut Clamping System
The WALKER-STRUT® CLAMPING SYSTEM is ideal for line runs through 6" where space is at a premium, or where severe shock and vibration is not present. Used now for several years in the fluid power industry, it has been proven time and again as the most sensible, most economical, most trouble-free rail-mounted clamp available. The Walker-Strut is also widely used in the refrigeration and mobile industries.

The WALKER-STRUT Clamp

Clamps are available in plated steel and stainless steel. The Bushing Manufactured from a thermoplastic elastomer, it's built tough to withstand the effects of most oils, chemicals and industrial cleaning compounds, in temperatures from – 20oF to 275oF.

Installation
One man, one tool time savings. Retrofits can be added without disassembling your present system. Despite its exclusive benefits, the Walker-Strut System from Hydro-Craft is priced competitively. Installation is a snap: simply mount the base channel, position the clamp, and tighten! WALKER-STRUT assemblies are available 5 sets per bag. Larger quantities can be shipped in bulk.

The Multi-Clamp System
The MULTI-CLAMP SYSTEM enables you to route single line runs, multiple runs of the same line diameters, or multiple runs of various diameters. Multiple line runs can be stacked to conserve space and make installations more rigid.

The MULTI-CLAMP SYSTEM provides definite reference for measuring . . . so important in laying out line runs. Quite an advantage over clamping devices that change center distance both vertically and horizontally with each change in line diameter. This advantage can be fully realized when stacking line runs, because with MULTI-CLAMP, both vertical and horizontal center line distances remain specifically designed to give you exact spacing and ease of installation.

Tank Breather Adapter

Tank Breather Adapter
Using these simple adapters, you can turn our spin-on filter elements into great big tank breathers. This provides you with better filtration of air entering your larger hydraulic tanks, plus much longer filter life. These adapters have straight-threads on one end to attach to the filter element, and NPT threads on the other end to go into a half-coupling welded to the tank top.
   
Des-Case Breathers Des-Case Breathers
The Des-Case Breather is a unique, patented air filter and water vapor removal system. These hydroscopic breathers prevent water and contaminants from entering fluid reservoirs as differential pressures occur through thermal expansion and contraction of the fluid.
