The effects of water are insidious. Failure due to water contamination may be catastrophic. This white paper presents a patented and proven process that cleans and dries oil and hydraulic fluids extending the drainage periods and dramatically increasing the life of the fluids and the equipment. The units are scalable and adaptable to a wide variety of applications, including gasoline and diesel engines, turbines, transformers, generators and all hydraulic systems.
There are several different types of contamination in hydraulic and lubrication oils which cause problems for reliable operations in industrial plants around the world, including particulate, entrained gases, acids, and varnish. One of the biggest problems is water contamination. Plant maintenance and reliability personnel should pull regular oil samples and have them analyzed for overall water content (as well as other key contamination measurements).
In the world of marksmanship, there is a popular phrase – “aim small, miss small.” This means that if you just aim at a target, you may miss the target entirely, but if you focus and aim at the bullseye, you may miss it, but still hit the target. We can “aim small, miss small” in the world of oil filtration as well. By filtering out the most dangerous particulates - those less than 5 microns in size. This allows you to efficiently and effectively hit your oil cleanliness targets. We will discuss, in depth recent advances in filter media technology and techniques so that even if you miss your target, you will still exceed your clean oil goals. The end result will be cleaner oil and lower particle counts resulting in longer oil life, fewer breakdowns and repairs, reduced chances of costly downtime, and extended equipment life.
Keeping a handle on lubrication is easy, right? All one needs to do is make sure the right lubricant is used in the right amount and at the right time. Not so fast; if only it were that simple. Most bearing failures are lubrication-related.
How do we get the point across to management that Lubrication Excellence equals good business? Isn’t this the big question? Among the more frequently asked questions in lubrication training courses is “how do I make management understand the importance of this stuff?” The question is usually followed by the statement that “we need it, but I can’t seem to get the message across to them.” There are lots of reasons why you can’t get management onboard, but they can generally be reduced to two broad categories: the lack of access and inability to speak the same language.
