CLEAN, WATER FREE HYDRAULIC OIL AND PREVENTS DAMAGE AND FAULTS
Maintenance of hydraulic oil is often neglected. Regular maintenance of oil is a crucial factor for faultless operation. The components in a modern hydraulic unit glide on an oil film of less than 10 μm. This fine oil film guarantees the smooth operation of the system, however it requires clean oil.
In practice, fluids in hydraulic systems are often highly contaminated. This is not always apparent as the visibility threshold for the human eye is approximately 40 μm. The micfil ultrafine filter in the bypass flow has a filter performance of 0.5 μm and provides a continuous cleaning process of hydraulic oils and absorption of water. The filter reduces wear on valves, cylinders and pistons and minimizes the risk of breakdowns.
A particle count oil analysis shows the high filter performance of the micfil ultrafine filters:
|Number of particles per 100 ml
