The short answer is the Deschner Kinechek Speed Regulator.
The American company, Deschner Corporation, revolutionized the industry in 1960 when Mr. Richard E. Deschner invented the Kinechek hydraulic speed regulator. The name Kinechek was derived from the word “kinetic”, meaning motion or movement, and “check”, meaning to slow down or stop. Before the Kinechek, hydraulic speed regulators were bulky one-size-fits-all monstrosities that leaked and required constant refilling. Well, Mr. Deschner changed all that.
It does not rely on sliding seals. The Kinechek is a compact unit with a hermetically sealed environment for the fluid; so there is no leakage and no need for refilling. It uses super-clean FDA approved silicone fluid that gets filtered on every stroke. No dirt, dust or lint can contaminate the fluid so the internal flow aperture never silts to cause variation in the plunger speed. They are ideal to control the feed rate of pneumatic drills, lathes, mill tables, part feeders, or any equipment that requires a controlled rate of movement. And since it is leak-proof, it is also well suited for the food industry
The Kinechek really is a marvelous piece of engineering! So much so that others have been trying to copy it for 50 years. But none have been able to duplicate the durability or performance of the Kinechek. Comparison endurance testing shows that the Kinechek continues to work up to five times (5x) longer than any other brand on the market, including the “Hydro” speed regulator, which is just an attempted knock-off of the Kinechek by a large drill manufacturer. These other brands might be less expensive, but they lack the smooth, durable, leak-proof performance of the Kinechek. In fact, there are still Kinechek units being used today after decades of service. In the long run, these other brands will end up costing more in production downtime. The Kinechek is built to last.
All around the world, the Deschner name has become synonymous with “high quality”. In the Asian markets, Deschner is well known for being the best and commonly referred to simply as the “white horse“. No doubt, because of the distinctive Deschner company logo.
