Parker oil mon­i­tor­ing and clean­ing equip­ment saves time, money and costly down­time

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - HYDRAULICS & PNEUMATICS -

The Parker range of online and off line fil­tra­tion and con­tam­i­na­tion mon­i­tor­ing prod­ucts are ex­ten­sively used by EHL Group to min­imise the run­ning costs of all its cus­tomers.

Oil is the lifeblood of any hy­draulic sys­tem and reg­u­lar checks on the clean­li­ness is es­sen­tial in the day to day run­ning of any piece of hy­draulic equip­ment. Con­tam­i­nates are the main cause of sys­tem fail­ures and mon­i­tor­ing the oil can not only show if your sys­tems fil­tra­tion is suf­fi­cient and work­ing cor­rectly, but can also show trends for po­ten­tial com­po­nent fail­ures.

All hy­draulic com­po­nent man­u­fac­tur­ers give a min­i­mum rec­om­mended ISO or NAS clean­li­ness level for their prod­ucts. This is a min­i­mum level and there are mul­ti­ple rea­sons why the sys­tem should be main­tained at a higher level of clean­li­ness. EHL use the No­ria/Parker Tar­get Clean­li­ness Grid which takes into con­sid­er­a­tion over ten risk fac­tors re­lat­ing to the spe­cific sys­tem to come up with the best clean­li­ness level for the sys­tem, not just a generic num­ber.

EHL rec­om­mends Park­ers online LCM20 laser par­ti­cle counter as an ex­cel­lent tool to check the re­quired clean­li­ness level while the equip­ment is run­ning. Off line fil­tra­tion and mon­i­tor­ing with the Parker 10MF fil­ter cart with iCount par­ti­cle de­tec­tor can not only con­di­tion the f luid but also give a real-time vis­ual ISO or NAS fig­ure. If your sys­tem is de­signed to achieve the re­quired clean­li­ness level and is main­tained and mon­i­tored, it will pro­long the life of the sys­tem and pre­vent ex­pen­sive down time sav­ing you, the client money.
