A smarter way to carry out on-site main­te­nance

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - HYDRAULICS -

On­site main­te­nance can be a very time con­sum­ing process, par­tic­u­larly if you are called on-site to fault find or ar­rive on­site to find there are no test points in­stalled. PT Hy­draulics now of­fers serv-Clip, a prod­uct that en­ables on-site ser­vic­ing to be car­ried out much faster and with con­sid­er­able cost sav­ings. Serv-Clip of­fer a range of pipe mea­sur­ing points and sen­sors suit­able for tubes op­er­at­ing at pres­sures up to 630Bar (9100 PSI). Fit­ted to pres­surised or non-pres­surised sys­tems in ap­prox­i­mately three min­utes, serv-Clip can be used on 10-65mm tube or 3/8” - 2” tube in work­ing tem­per­a­tures from -40 to +120 de­grees Cel­sius.

Serv-Clip re­quires no LOTO (Lock Out Tag Out) and no cut­ting of tub­ing; they are sim­ply in­stalled by screw­ing the clip onto a cleaned pipe/tube sur­face. Once se­curely at­tached to the tube, a spe­cially shaped steel nee­dle is in­serted through the wall of the tube above the screw head. The screw head is then screwed back slightly to re­veal a small con­tained hole al­low­ing the pres­sure to be an­a­lysed im­me­di­ately with­out in­ter­rupt­ing the hy­draulic sys­tem op­er­a­tion.

The sys­tem is com­pletely leak proof and the pos­si­ble con­tam­i­na­tion of hy­draulic fluid by in­sert­ing new pipe into the sys­tem is elim­i­nated. Once the serv-Clip is in­stalled, it can be left in place for fu­ture main­te­nance with­out com­pro­mis­ing the op­er­a­tional safety or in­tegrity of the hy­draulic sys­tem.
