We recently received a request from a Belgian precast concrete company to help them with remotely actuating their hydraulic cylinders to open and close the moulds of their concrete pipes. This would save them time in the production process. This was our cup of tea from the start. Our engineers modified a portable cordless ENERPAC hydraulic pump and installed a  EATON VICKERS directional valve and a ICARUS RX MINI receiver on it. Want to see the result of this creation, check out the video !


If you got a (hydraulic) problem, give us call and we’re on it !

REM-B HYDRAULICS has been awarded with being the best ENERPAC distributor BENELUX for the financial year 2018. We would like to thank the whole team for their efforts and performance.

REM-B HYDRAULICS from Beerse has joined forces with the American company ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY SERVICES (ETS) to accelerate growth in the European and global market

ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY SERVICES (Memphis, USA), a company specialized in repairing and distributing hydraulic components and also the largest brand-independent distributor of original components and spare parts of A-brands (BOSCH REXROTH, PARKER, EATON…) from the United States recently entered into into a partnership and will coöperate more closely.


This joining of forces gives the group a unique opportunity to grow further and to offer a counterweight to counteract the incoming wave of copy parts that flood the European market,  mainly from the East. Both REM-B’ s and ETS’ customers will benefit from this collaboration. Clients will be able to find an even wider range of high-quality parts (of A-brands) even faster and this at a very competitive price.

REM-B and ETS have direct access to each other’s stock and can enjoy each other’s know-how and years of experience. Together they can rely on the expertise of 90 driven employees and more than 50 years of experience in the hydraulic service market.

This recent collaboration fits in with the strategy of becoming one of the largest distributors of original hydraulic components and spare parts on the world market.

Currently the Belgian company still owns the majority of the shares. From 2020 the American partner will further increase its participation.

For more information regarding the American partner:

REM.B & ETS entered into a partnership in 2019 with the aim of becoming the largest global supplier of original spare parts and components in the hydraulic service market.

REM-B HYDRAULICS has recently delivered 2 hydraulic groups that will be used to drive valve weirs in the controlled overflow area Alken-Wellen. A valve weir is intended to influence the water level, whereby the adjustable valve ensures that a different level can be set in different periods.

The project was commissioned by a well-known contractor with a very good reputation in public works and industrial projects.

In close cooperation with the customer, REM-B (from engineering up to and including delivery) has taken care of both the hydraulic groups, the cylinders and the piping. Both hydraulic groups were also equipped with emergency controls (batteries + hand pump), so that the valve weir can still be operated in the event of a power failure.

Hydraulic components were used for the respective groups. Bosch Rexroth & Eaton Vickers, for which REM-B’s extensive stock was available.

REM-B has more than 30 years of experience in selling and repairing hydraulic components as well as in the development and realization of projects. Through a perfect synergy with the customer, we are able to realize a wide range of projects. More information about REM-B can be found at

Eaton LifeSense® condition monitoring system for hydraulic hoses

The LifeSense® hydraulic hose condition monitoring system is a revolutionary monitoring system that detects impending hydraulic hose failure and alerts operators and maintenance crews so they can schedule maintenance and plan downtime. Instead of waiting for a hose to fail or replacing it long before the end of its useful life – both of which are costly – the LifeSense system continuously monitors hose condition via electrical signals and generates an alert when the hose starts to experience internal fatigue. So you can get maximum performance while proactively protecting workers, equipment and the environment.


What is condition based monitoring?

Condition based monitoring utilizes technology to monitor the health of a component in real time. It differs from predictive maintenance solutions since it is diagnostic rather than prognostic.

Other manufacturers use equations and historical data to predict service life, but every application is different and used differently throughout its life exposing their users to more risk.


Benefits of a LifeSense System:

  • Realize up to 50 percent more hydraulic hose life
  • Diminish wasteful preventive maintenance practices by replacing hoses only when necessary
  • Protect the environment by minimizing damage caused by hydraulics leaks and spills
  • Optimize equipment uptime by detecting and warning of impending hose failure in time to take action
  • Improve maintenance efficiency by automating inspections with on-going, real-time monitoring
  • Increased safety for workers, equipment, and the environment
