Particle counting properly done is a tool for managing maintenance costs and ensuring reliable operation of machinery that uses hydraulics. Particle counting done incorrectly can lead to unnecessary service or impending failure that is not detected in time. This webinar will focus on ISO 11500, Hydraulic fluid power – Determination of particulate contamination level of […]
Bosch Rexroth has published a new booklet to help technicians determine sources of problems with hydraulic systems and understand the basics of contamination control and recognize the importance of good filtration practices. As the central component of any hydraulic system, oil contamination is often a major reason for system failure. More than 75 percent of […]
Although hydraulic fluids are produced under clean conditions, by the time they have been stored, transported and transferred into a customer’s system they are nearly always contaminated with metal and rubber particles.
The Driflex Oil Conditioning System for complete removal of free, emulsified and dissolved water from a wide variety of industrial and mobile lubrication and hydraulic systems. On average, oil contamination from dirt and water causes 70-80% of lubricated equipment wear and failures.
It’s easy. All you have to do is start with clean fluid and keep it that way. Dirty fluid really causes 80% of hydraulic system failures. But there is a big difference between knowing the cause of a problem and eliminating it.
