Hydraulic training program includes hands-on work in the lab

Wainbee Learning Centres present a range of courses for practical, hands- on training. The Industrial Hydraulic Technology course is an integrated 32-hour (4-1/2-day) program that focuses on generic hydraulic components and circuits. Included in the course is a practical study of pumps, flow valves, pressure valves, directional valves, hydraulic motors, filters, cylinders and accumulators. Participants spend about 25% of their time in the lab designing, building and troubleshooting hydraulic circuits on system simulators.

Off-line filter helps prevent wear on injection moulding machines

ServTek’s compact off-line filter system cleans highly contaminated hydraulic oil used by injection moulding machines, machine tools and gearboxes, extending oil life and decreasing hydraulic system component wear. These self-contained units come as single, easy-to-install assemblies complete with filter, motor and pump. The dedicated pump pulls dirty oil from the machine’s hydraulic system reservoir, through the off-line filter, and then returns the filtered oil back to the reservoir. Each filter can capture 200 g of contaminants down to 2 microns in size, and provides single-pass separation efficiency of over 99.9%. Systems are available in 1.5 gpm and 4.5 gpm versions that are designed for tank capacities of up to 200 gal. and 525 gal., respectively.

Additives improve performance of hydraulic fluids

Lubrizol additives, engineered chemical components that are found in lubricants and fuels used in industry, can be applied to improve filterability in hydraulic systems in manufacturing, mining, materials handling, construction, paper making and steel mill equipment. A premium hydraulic fluid, formulated with Lubrizol 5703, passes the AFNOR filterability test 10 out of 10 times. The additives provide superior product performance, minimize filter blockage, improve water/fluid separation and help prolong equipment life.

Hydraulic oil cleaning system keeps machines running

Kleentek electrostatic oil cleaning systems remove insoluble contaminants, including tars and varnishes, from hydraulic oil systems in metal-producing facilities. Oxidation causes sticky tar, varnish or sludge to form, which adheres to component surfaces and causes loss of control stability, constant valve adjustment, increased downtime and reduced machine performance. The oil cleaning system eliminates maintenance problems by using electrostatic principles to draw contaminants out of the oil, trapping them on the surface of the collector. Collectors can hold up to 10 lb before they need changing. Each unit has a modular, compact design that allows it to be easily field-mounted as a dedicated unit.
