Flushing of Hydraulic Systems Found in Industrial Equipment and Mobile Machinery
In accordance with widely accepted industrial standards, preventive maintenance processes that remove contaminates from hydraulic systems can produce the following benefits and results:
- The effective Service Life of hydraulic motors, pumps, valves and distribution devices can be doubled.
- Hydraulic system warranties can be extended by as much as two years due to the reduction in the risk of hydraulic system component failure during the warranty period. Fluid purity however, must still be monitored and controlled and the hydraulic system must be cleaned annually.
- Equipment downtime is reduced.
- The cost of transportation of equipment to repair facilities is reduced or eliminated.
Even if oil and hydraulic filters are changed completely, it still does not guarantee that the hydraulic system will be completely free of contaminants. Solid particulate matter, can and will, remain in valves, pumps, motors and on the internal surfaces of high pressure hoses. By introducing certain changes that greatly improve filtration system efficiency, equipment downtime can be significantly reduced because the fluid is purified and contaminates can be removed much more effectively than by a simple oil and filter change.
