The baler chamber would start off with little cardboard in it, then the large baler cylinder would extend until cardboard was compressed enough to cause hydraulic pressure to reach 4,500 psi. The piston rod would then retract based on pressure, not stroke position, for the next cycle.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/troubleshooting-challenge-compactor-return-line-filter-problem" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/troubleshooting-challenge-compactor-return-line-filter-problem#comments Air Filters and FRLs Thu, 16 Jul 2015 15:27:00 +0000 33321 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Air Dryers Incorporate Filtration http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/air-dryers-incorporate-filtration <div class="node-body article-body"><p>The Hydra-D series of dryers effectively removes dirt, micro-organisms, and water vapor from compressed air, eliminating condensation and contamination in pneumatic applications</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/air-dryers-incorporate-filtration" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/air-dryers-incorporate-filtration#comments Products Air Filters and FRLs Tue, 17 Feb 2015 16:56:00 +0000 31001 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com In-line air preparation units http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/line-air-preparation-units <div class="node-body article-body">MS Series product line for modern compressed air preparation includes pressure regulators, on/off and soft-start valves with safety functions, fillers, pressure and flow rate sensors and lubricators. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/line-air-preparation-units" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/line-air-preparation-units#comments Air Filters and FRLs Fri, 10 Oct 2014 20:54:00 +0000 29281 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Minimal Lubrication, Maximum Life http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/minimal-lubrication-maximum-life <div class="field-byline"> Dave Hone, Master Pneumatic, Sterling Heights, Mich. </div> <div class="field-deck"> The proper use of air-line lubricators helps ensure better overall performance and longer equipment life. </div> <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Despite all of today&rsquo;s hype about &ldquo;oilless&rdquo; pneumatics, the fact remains that many pneumatic systems and almost all pneumatic tools perform better when lubricated with oil. Using air-line lubricators to introduce oil into the airstream can continuously lubricate valves, cylinders, and air motors. Benefits include lower friction; cooler, smoother, and quieter operation; better control of speed and torque; lower maintenance and replacement costs; and longer service life.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/minimal-lubrication-maximum-life" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/minimal-lubrication-maximum-life#comments Air Filters and FRLs Thu, 05 Jun 2014 18:46:00 +0000 27181 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com ORAs Improve Filter Breathers http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/oras-improve-filter-breathers <div class="field-byline"> Alan Hitchcox, Editor </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Gangnon’s Oilmiser Reservoir Aspirator (ORA) is installed between a standard reservoir and filter breather.

Removing water, contaminants, and oil vapor from the air improves the performance, reduces the need for maintenance, and extends the life of cylinders and valves. And it ensures high product quality and eliminates defects when air is used as part of a manufacturing or packaging process. However, traditional desiccant and refrigeration air dryers can be bulky, costly, and maintenance intensive.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/compact-dryer-handles-wide-ranging-applications" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/compact-dryer-handles-wide-ranging-applications#comments Air Filters and FRLs Tue, 09 Jul 2013 19:50:00 +0000 22271 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Compressed air filtration http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/air-filters-and-frls/compressed-air-filtration <div class="node-body article-body"><p> Series of Extractor/Dryers is designed to be used as point-of-use filters that efficiently remove moisture and contaminants to improve and extend the life of pneumatic components.
