Roquet Making Moves


New solutions for an evolving market


The main research challenges facing the hydraulics industry today (as defined by the NFPA Technology Roadmap)  are: Increase energy efficiency, improve reliability, reduce size, build "smart" components and systems, reduce environmental impact and improve energy storage capabilities.

R&D at Roquet


Current research at Roquet is focused on "smart" components/systems and increased energy efficiency.


In recent years Roquet has completed the following research projects:

  • 4-year design-for-life research project which led to substantial reduction in raw material (cylinders)
  • 3-year research project to increase energy efficiency and reduce environmental impact (castings for pumps and control valves)
  •  3-year research project to improve reliability and increase energy efficiency of gear pumps & motors
