Can you afford not to monitor your hydraulic fluid?
Posted On: 21 October 2020
More than 70% of hydraulic breakdowns can be attributed to particulate contamination in the hydraulic fluid. A new hydraulic system runs at full pressure, load and speed, but over time contamination can cause wear and cracks at critical component surfaces and the system’s efficiency deteriorates long before any failures occur. With typical component clearances down to 0,5 microns it does not take much to block an orifice or to reduce, constrict or stop the flow of media, thereby preventing the proper operation of a hydraulic application.
Flo-tech is a leading brand of portable testers and turbines for hydraulic fluids. Flo-tech began in 1961 with the introduction of its first generation PFM portable tester. Over the years, the Flo-tech tester line has undergone a progression of design changes that have enhanced its operational features while maintaining the rugged dependability of that first tester. Flo-tech products are manufactured by Badger Meters, an innovator in flow measurement and control products that serve water utilities, municipalities and commercial and industrial customers worldwide.
EZ-View variable area flowmeters from Hedland are rugged, low-cost direct reading meters for flow measurement of oil, water and other fluids. They can be installed easily in any orientation without sacrificing measurement performance.
Constructed of high impact PPSU, the range offers excellent structural integrity and chemical compatibility with a wide range of industrial chemicals and allows instant, direct flow rate measurement of liquids in closed piping systems.
The EZ-View® variable area flow meters are rugged, low-cost direct reading meters for flow measurement of oil, water and other fluids.They are very simple to install – in any orientation from vertical to horizontal, upside down, etc. without sacrificing measurement performance.
Constructed of high impact PPSU, the EZ-View® product line offers excellent structural integrity and chemical compatibility with a wide range of industrial chemicals.
PVVM couplings have been designed by Faster in order to be used at high pressure ensuring, in the same time, a very high safety level to the user.
They are very consolidated products and have been created many years ago for heavy duty service when it is necessary to withstand very high static pressure on hydraulic jacks, rams, clamping devices hand tools and cylinders.
For building and construction applications, it has become necessary to develop innovative technological solutions for several problems in a variety of situations.
As a consequence, the technical solutions adopted for developing and manufacturing the new FHV series quick release coupling must represent excellence because quick release couplings represent are interface between the machine (power source) and the hydraulic attachment.
The test confirms the best performance of FHV screw-on couplers:
