Farewell to water, gas and solids in hydraulic systems

Farewell to water, gas and solids in hydraulic systems

(Werdohl, March 2011)

Reasonably priced alternative to evaporators
“Cleaning help” with real inner worth

130 kilos, 1.2 metres high, 0.74 metres wide and 0.45 metres deep: these vital statistics have nothing to do with a model for a casting show - they refer to a “cleaning help” with real inner worth. We are talking about the Stauff Mini Water Vac (SMWV) which removes water and solid dirt particles from hydraulic oils in a self-regulating process by means of vacuum and superfine filtering (one micrometre).

Sales Manager Martin Hansmann: “Once the moisture content exceeds one per cent, the oil has to be changed to prevent damage to hydraulic aggregates.” Having to change the oil because of water in the system is no longer needed with the SMWV in stationary use; it cleans up to 90 litres of hydraulic oil per hour in the bypass. It is designed for a tank volume of up to 10,000 litres. “In contrast with the customary expensive evaporators with complex PLC, our much more cost-effective system achieves a comparable cleaning performance – and at the same time filters out even the tiniest dirt particles,” explains Hansmann. “The SMWV is equipped with only a simple ON/OFF switch. This means that it does not call for a maintenance expert to operate it; an unskilled employee can do the job.”
The water separator does not have to be controlled when in operation as it switches off automatically once the maximum filling level has been reached. Reason enough for Stauff to present their “cleaning help” – one that users can buy, rent or lease – at the coming Hanover Industrial Fair (Hall 21, Stand D21).
