The Problem: Contaminated Fluid Means Downtime
Sawmills operate using multiple pieces of large equipment and heavy machinery with hydraulic systems. Unfortunately, when this equipment becomes degraded with contaminated fluid, it means unplanned downtime for the sawmill and lost profits and decreased production levels. The financial burdens due to contaminated oil can feel enormous when the resulting costs are added up.
The Costs and Opportunity
When all factors are considered, like hours for maintenance personnel, replacement parts, fluid consumption and the decrease in profitability because of these things, it is easy to understand the substantial cost impact that occurs due to
The Solution: Total Systems Cleanliness Approach
At Hy-Pro, we recommend implementing the Total Systems Cleanliness Approach, which we've found helps maximize uptime, extend component life, extend fluid life, reduce maintenance resource demands and reduce fluid disposal costs. Upgrading to DFE rated G8 Dualglass filter elements with absolute efficiency, installing Hy-Dry Desiccant Breathers and installing additional off-line filtration where necessary can be very effective.
