To avoid replacement of contaminated oil that can still be used, it can, and should be be filtered and restored. Obviously, the objective is to minimize costs while maximizing the result.
For this purpose, GlobeCore offers on site filtration solutions. The filtration fineness of our UVR plant is 3 microns.
To evaluate just how efficient the 3 micron standard is, let’s take a look at proportional hydraulic systems. The maximum allowable particle size is 5 microns. If you were to measure the purity of new replacement oil for this equipment, you will see particles as high as 20 microns in the fluid. Purification therefore, is not an option, it is mandatory before putting new oil into proportional hydraulic machine systems.
The precise price of oil purification through filtration may be determined directly on site. The process will be influenced by many factors and the most important ones are (1) the volume or amount of processed oil, and (2) the degree of fluid contamination.
Each equipment manufacturer produces operator’s manuals for hydraulic fluid replacement, but that doesn’t mean that such manuals are always read and followed. The main principles of a fluid replacement operation are as follows:
Oil should have been be stored in sealed vessels. Before placing the oil into the hydraulic system, the hydraulic tank should be cleaned and should be absolutely free from all dirt and contamination accumulated during previous operations.
Oil must be filled only from clean canisters by special pumps. These pumps prevent contaminants from entering the hydraulic system from the surface of the container. At no time should new fluid be exposed to outside air and poured into the fluid tank. The new fluid should be pumped though hoses from the top of the container into the fluid tank. This will prevent any moisture found at the bottom of the container from being placed into the fluid tank.
If the fluid does have contact with air, its maximum storage life is approximately two years. If a malfunction of the system requires that the fluid be drained, it’s properties should be examined before being returned to the hydraulic equipment fluid reservoir.
This is a relatively inexpensive process, especially in the case of heavy machinery with large volumes of the fluid.
Industry statistics reveal that as much as 70% of all hydraulic failures are caused by contamination of the system’s fluids. Every professional mechanic learns a a very simple rule: “The purity of hydraulic oil is the basic foundation of reliable operation and long service life of hydraulic systems.” It is however, not the only factor. Additionally, the careful selection of hydraulic fluid and use of the correct replacement procedures are just as important.
If you wish to protect your hydraulic equipment and extend the service life of the fluid in your circulating hydraulic systems, GlobeCore has your answer. GlobeCore offers the best and most cost effective alternative to solving your preventive maintenance problems. GlobeCore is the industry leader and provides you with all the best possible solutions to hydraulic fluid purification.
GlobeCore has several various models designed for purification and regeneration of turbine oil, industrial oil, and transformer oil. The GlobeCore product and equipment range can tackle any purification problem in the industry today including Offshore and Marine applications.
Oil suppliers rarely provide oil of the purity required for modern hydraulic and lubrication systems. Hence the need for the consumers to take matters in their own hands and bring supplied oils up to spec. GlobeCore will do this for you because you have enough to worry about.
It’s time to get with the Process, The GlobeCore Process!
