A brief history of Brand Hydraulics Corporation
Brand Hydraulics was founded in 1956 by Glen Brand and his wife Mary Lou. Having won the 1948 Olympic Gold Medal in London, England in free-style wrestling, Glen studied engineering at Iowa State. Since Glen’s passing in 2008 the company has been run by their son, Greg Brand.
In 1997, Brand began to design and incorporate electronic controllers and custom wiring harnesses into their product line. Brand is committed to the future of hydraulics and electro-hydraulic components and continues to develop hydraulic valves, electronic controllers and products which incorporate both (electro-hydraulics).
In 2015 a range of wireless radio remote controls were added to the range, the V & RP Series can be viewed here.
Brand Hydraulics specialise in Flow Control Valves, the Brand full range pressure compensating variable flow control is designed so that the orifice area varies as the lever is rotated. Fluid travels past the variable orifice, through the compensator spool and then out the controlled flow port. Therefore the flow out of the CF port is proportional to the orifice area, which can vary from closed to open.
The manual FC51 / FC55 flow control valve. One of the first products developed by Brand.
Parkers stock the Brand Flow Control Valves in both manual and electrical control options in the UK and have access to the full range of products.
Parker Hydraulics and Pneumatics was formed in 1975 selling bulk hydraulic hose, couplings and hose assemblies for the OEM and replacement market. Today we supply specialist hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical control equipment and services.
