Conditioning New Oil

By Jim Harlan on Fri, Feb. 19, 2016

Subpar fluid handling practices and inadequate filtration are the leading cause of system reliability issues today. Contaminated hydraulic fluids foul valves and other components causing them to eventually fail and bring your production process to a screeching halt.

This also happens when contamination within lube oils damages the system components the fluid is meant to protect. Your hydraulic fluids and lube oils are the lifeblood of your systems, and on a larger scale your entire operation, so they should be cared for as a precious resource from reception to disposal. One of the best ways to reduce contamination in your system is to prevent it from ever entering it in the first place so let’s discuss the best practices for receiving and storing new fluids.

Is Choosing a Sample Port Location Driving You Mad?

By Jim Harlan on Mon, Jul. 07, 2014

The ideal sample port location depends on the purpose for drawing the sample. There are several reasons to draw samples from your hydraulic or lube systems. The main reason is to ensure that the fluid traveling through your system is not loaded with contamination that will damage your pumps, valves and other components.

Secondary reasons include identifying components that are beginning to wear before they fail (this allows you to be proactive about the component replacement or repair) and verifying filter element performance. Continue reading to learn where to take a sample from for each of these reasons. We’ve also included some general fluid sampling tips at the end of this blog.

Diesel Fuel Filtration 101

By Jim Harlan on Wed, Apr. 02, 2014

Diesel engines are widely used today. You can find them inside buses and tractor trailers traveling our roads, humming along in construction equipment and drill rigs, submerged in marine environments and helping save lives in hospital generators, amongst many other applications. Diesel engines are popular for good reason. Not only do they have cleaner exhaust emissions, they are also known for more reliable starts in extreme temperatures.
