Schroeder Industries introduces its new HY-TRAX Fluid Sampling System. Schroeder’s new HY-TRAX System is a compact fluid sampling system that includes a VSD pump and TestMate Particle Counter (TCM) mounted on a small manifold block. The HY-TRAX Sampling Systems eliminate the task of locating a sampling port with adequate pressure and flow. Pump speed is adjustable and the systems are designed to operate on mineral based hydraulic fluids up to 350 cSt. The HY-TRAX system displays the ISO contamination codes and optional saturation levels.
Schroeder offers the system in two versions, a Manual Control version or a Remote Communications version. The Manual Control version allows the user to manually adjust pump speed to compensate for varying fluid viscosities. The HY-TRAX Sampling Systems are designed to retrieve ISO cleanliness levels from a reservoir tank or a low pressure line (<50 psi). The compact design is ideal for installations on today’s systems with tight space constraints. The unit can be powered with either 24 Volts DC or 120 Volts AC.
The Remote Communication version adds greater flexibility to the end user. The same VSD pump is automatically adjusted by the communication module to provide optimal flow to the TCM Particle Counter. Thecollects data and the communications module transmits this data via GSM cellular communications, at two minute intervals. All data is transmitted through a secure VPN connection and is archived on a secure third level party server. The HY-TRAX data is displayed on a custom dashboard with user selectable parameters. HY-TRAX will even send alert emails when programmed thresholds are reached. This will provide maintenance mangers with the visibility and information to pro-actively schedule preventative maintenance on local and remote equipment.
