HIGHLY EFFICIENT OIL PURIFIER
FOR MINERAL, SYNTHETIC
AND BIODEGRADABLE OILS
Keep the hydraulic system running
In hydraulic systems, more than 80 % of unplanned down time and failures are a direct result of contamination. Production loss caused by unplanned down time can be costly and time consuming.
PREDICTIVE HYDRAULIC FLUID MANAGEMENT PREVENTS UNPLANNED DOWNTIME
By our proven and patented technology, we remove 100 % of free water and entrained gases and more than 90 % of dissolved water and gases. The HydrovacTM Oil Purifier uses two technologies to remove water from oil; vacuum and air stripping.
By minimizing water and gas contamination, a series of problems in hydraulic systems can be reduced or completely eliminated;
- Fluid oxidation
- Bacterial growth
- Maintaining lubricity properties
- Forming ice crystals if system below 0°C (32°F)
- Uneven motion of actuator/pistons or other components
These are all known problems where the origin can be traced back to water and gas in the hydraulic system.
HYDROVACTM OIL PURIFIER, PATENTED PRODUCT COMBINING AIR STRIPPING AND VACUUM TECHNOLOGY
Contaminated oil is drawn into the purifier by the use of vacuum. Before entering the reactor chamber the oil will be heated up to approximately 50°C (122°F). Extensive testing has shown this to be an ideal temperature for most hydraulic fluids, and allows maximum water extraction without destroying the physical properties of the fluid.
The temperature is adjustable both higher and lower to accommodate a wide variety of fluid properties. In addition, air is mixed into the hot oil, attracting the moisture entrapped in the oil when entering the reactor chamber.
By exposing the water-contaminated oil to vacuum, the water and gas converts into saturated vapor, leaving the reactor column in the top area. The purified oil is then collected in the bottom and pumped back to the reservoir.
