Following the introduction of the Lukas streamline coupling, Vetter have announced the new S.Tec (streamline technology) range of high pressure lifting airbags. The new S.Tec bags, available from PT Hydraulics Australia , achieve a 25% increase in performance by innovative technology and an operating pressure of 10 bar/145psi as opposed to the 8 bar mini lifting bags.
In addition to the 25% increase in lifting power, these new bags have a modern and well thought-out design, offering a number of new features. The new interlocking surface structure simultaneously improves holding features on various groundings while avoiding slippage between the bag and the load.
In order to avoid dirt penetrating the bag at the air connection, S.Tec Bags are fitted with a new valve protection cap, which also includes an additional holder, ensuring the cap is not lost.
The new label design assures quick and accurate reading of the safety instructions by using easy to understand diagrams. The serial number printed on the plate determines the age of the bag, while an inspection label shows when the S.Tec Bag should be retested.
Product Highlights of the new Vetter S.Tec Airbag range:
- Operating pressure of 10 bar, giving a 25% power enhancement
- Maximum insertion height of 2.5cm

- Rounded side profile facilitates insertions
