Global Shield is the Greener Path to Corrosion Protection

Across the nation, municipalities are exploring options to reduce the emissions of their sanitation fleets. Some communities make a big dent in reducing emissions with the employ of heavy duty natural gas trucks. Others focus more on the upgrade of existing fleet vehicle componentry and equipment to cut emissions where they can. There are many areas, in the refuse industry particularly, with vehicles that can be explored to reduce the carbon footprint of each vehicle. 

 

A cylinder that lasts longer and creates less emissions is one area. In general, hydraulic cylinders have be robust to withstand the service life of a refuse vehicle because the environment is so corrosive. Parker’s NG High-performance cylinders with Global Shield Coating Technology are field proven to reduce CO2 emissions by up to a ton for each cylinder used in a fleet. The reduction is achieved through the elimination of chromium and related fumes and the overall reduction of energy used to conserve natural resources and reduce the carbon footprint.

The cylinders that are used to lift, compact and convey trash are repeatedly subject to impact, moisture and corrosive surroundings that make increasing vehicle uptime a constant test. The Global Shield technology has been proven to eliminate EPA concerns regarding environmentally hazardous Hexavalent Chrome and Nitride coatings.

The installation of Parker cylinders with Global Shield coating on new vehicles and the replacement  of worn out OEM original installs can contribute significantly to a community’s goals for reducing emissions.To learn more about Global Shield technology, download the product brochure.
