Operating countrywide, Hydrasales has a head office in Johannesburg and branches in Durban and Cape Town. It has been associated with MP Filtri since its inception.

Contamination monitoring workshops

Hydrasales recently held a series of highly informative workshops on contamination monitoring. Presented by Geoff Grant, global development manager for contamination monitoring products at MP Filtri (UK), they gave delegates an insight into how contamination can impact on quality, performance and profitability.

Contamination Control

Most hydraulic systems are contaminated with solid, liquid and gaseous particles, either generated externally or internally through fluids, component wear and tear, or just bad housekeeping. These contaminates can cause system inefficiencies or system failures.

Damage due to Neglect of Contamination Control

Hydraulic systems engineers are under tremendous pressure to extend system maintenance cycles in the current economic crunch. Ignoring either the cleanliness of hydraulic fluid or neglecting to monitor the efficiency of the system under strenuous operating conditions can lead to an excessive build up of contaminants within any hydraulic system.

Hydrasales celebrates with holiday giveaway

Let A Flow Meter Monitor Pump Efficiency

Many hydraulic systems use fixed displacement pumps as the primary source of flow. Engineers find that the actual flow the system attains is the specified pump displacement reduced by the pump’s inefficiency. This inefficiency results in lost flow which returns to the tank through an external case drain line.
