CHARLOTTE, N.C., May 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- SPX FLOW, Inc., a leading provider of process solutions for the Industrial, and Nutrition & Health markets, has expanded its portfolio of construction cylinders to include a series of locking collar cylinders. The new RGL Series is engineered for applications requiring mechanical cribbing or supporting loads for extended periods and is ideal for construction, mining and heavy equipment maintenance.

With enhanced safety and durability, the RGL series offers customers looking for mechanical lifting equipment along with the trust and reliability of the SPX FLOW Power Team brand.

"We pride ourselves on being a global leader in hydraulic pumps and tools and this new cylinder platform is designed to offer a safe, reliable and efficient lifting solution," said Derek Dreier, the global product manager of SPX FLOW's Hydraulic Technologies.
