Hydraulic Systems operate under some of the toughest operating conditions. These tough conditions accelerate sludge formation, increase system wear rates, damages hydraulic pumps, and will result in premature failures. Organic Filtration can greatly improve the operation of hydraulic systems by;
* removing sludge as it forms
*removing free water
*removing fine wear particles
*removing organic acids
Many hydraulic systems have small capacity reservoirs that do not allow air and heat to escape from the hydraulic oil and do not allow free water to separate from the oil. All of these factors increase the rate of oxidation of the hydraulic oils, consume the oil’s additives faster, and reduce the oil drain intervals.
The bottom line are increased maintenance costs, shorter maintenance intervals, and reduced overall profitability.
