Partnered with CC Jensen, Patriot Fluid Power provides filtration systems to keep your fluids clean and dry. With over 60 years of experience in oil maintenance the CJC oil filtration systems offer solutions for removal of particles, water, acidity and oil degradation products (varnish) from hydraulic oils, lube oils, gear oils, diesel fuels etc.
Maintenance is the largest single controllable expense in a manufacturing plant. With as many as 80% of all machine failures related to contamination in the oil, pro-active methods are saving industries considerable costs every year.
Below are some true benefits of Oil Maintenance:
- Up to 70% less machine stoppages and 60% savings in maintenance costs
- Increases machine availability = higher productivity
- Setup costs are quickly re coupled (short ROI)
- Increases lifetime of the hydraulic components
- Continuous maintenance of the tank (no cleaning necessary)
- Lower pressure loss and longer lifetime of in-line pressure filters
- Reduces malfunction and rejects due to higher control accuracy (no varnish layer)
- Increased lifetime of hydraulic oil
- Minimizes oil purchase and used oil disposal costs
Contamination can take the form of insoluble materials such as metals, dust particles, sand and rubber. The smallest particles are often responsible for defects, those below 2 µm, and better known as silt, resin or oxidation deposits.
Dirt holding capacity is the quantity of contamination retained by the filter insert when the saturation pressure is reached. This is measured in weight or volume. How much oil contamination a filter insert is capable of retaining is of highest importance for the cost of operating over a period of time. While most conventional pleated pressure filter inserts can retain less than hundred grams of dirt (<0.2 lbs), they may be fairly inexpensive to replace. However, if the cost of removing 1 kg or pound of oil contamination is calculated, these conventional pressure filter inserts will suddenly appear quite expensive. A good quality cellulose based offline filter insert can
retain up to several kg/lbs of dirt, so even though the purchase price is higher, the calculated cost for removing one kg or pound of contamination will be considerable lower than that of a pleated pressure filter insert, giving lower lifetime costs.
We are so confident in this system we offer a 90-day trial period for you to test the filtration system at your location and see the results for yourself! (cost of consumables do apply). Call today to set up an appointment to test your current fluid contamination and we can provide analysis of your starting point and show you results.
