- Excess wear and tear on equipment
- Leaking seals
- Sticking valves
- Blocked orifices and ports
- Tramp oil
- “New” water glycol hydraulic oil contamination
What Happens During The Water Glycol Hydraulic Oil Process?
Water Glycol Hydraulic Oil has many critical functions. The fluid is used to transmit power, lubricate, seal and transfer heat. As it is used and reused it begins to absorb contaminants such as chips, fines, tramp oil and bacteria. As these contaminants build up and pass through the hydraulic system, problems will start to occur. Valves will start to leak, orifices and ports will get blocked, seals with start to leak and components will fail. All of this will result in costly downtime and productivity loss.
Solution: COMO Filtration Systems
Particles and tramp oil contamination does not mean that the water glycol must be disposed of and replaced. Through multi-pass filtration, the particulate and tramp oil can be removed from the water glycol and thus the life of the oil can be increased. Using a COMO portable filtration system to go from reservoir to reservoir or a stationary system to sit at each reservoir can accomplish this.
