A combined motor/pump unit draws the oil through the filter and pumps clean oil back into the system. The filters remove particles as small as 0.5 &micro;m, reducing repairs and downtime. The units can work even when the main system is not in use. The filters are available with one, two, or four filter housings and in two lengths.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-filters/offline-filters" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-filters/offline-filters#comments Hydraulic Filters Mon, 07 Apr 2014 18:58:00 +0000 26161 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Got varnish?

But keeping contaminants out of the hydraulic system helps the filters do a better job and last longer. The net result: lower operating costs. </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p> Maintaining clean fluid in any hydraulic system requires capturing and removing contaminants, this is typically done by filtering the fluid. But to be done successfully, filtration must not disrupt fluid flow or substantially increase the pressure drop within the system.

Eventually, though, any filter will become clogged, so specifying any of several indicators will let operators know when the filter has reached its capacity. </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p> Clogging indicators are warning devices that signal visually or electrically that a filter element is filled with contaminants and should be changed or cleaned. These indicators activate when the flow of fluid causes a pressure drop (∆P) across the filter element that exceeds a predetermined setpoint. In filters that incorporate bypass valves, contaminated fluid will flow past the element if the operator does not respond to the indicator&rsquo;s signal within a reasonable time.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-filters/condition-monitoring-made-easy" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/hydraulic-filters/condition-monitoring-made-easy#comments Hydraulic Filters Tue, 21 May 2013 19:16:00 +0000 20911 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Cleaner Air, Cleaner Fluid http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/blog/cleaner-air-cleaner-fluid <div class="node-body blog-body"><p> As I&#39;ve been browsing through old issues to resurrect sage words from The Old Timer of royal Oak, I come across other gems that I think are worthy of sharing, and of course, still useful today.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/hitch-post">The Hitch Post</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/blog/cleaner-air-cleaner-fluid" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/blog/cleaner-air-cleaner-fluid#comments Hydraulic Filters Reservoirs & Accessories The Hitch Post Mon, 08 Apr 2013 12:51:00 +0000 20321 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Oil filter elements http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/products/oil-filter-elements <div class="node-body article-body">Oil filter elements remove solid particles, water, sludge, varnish and oxidation residues.
