Dynamic Filter Efficiency

Dynamic Filter Efficiency

 

What is Dynamic Filter Efficiency?

Dynamic Filter Efficiency matches filter testing with real-life conditions. 

All hydraulic and lube systems have a critical contamination tolerance level that is often defined by, but not limited to, the most sensitive system component such as servo valves or high speed journal bearings. Defining the ISO fluid cleanliness code upper limit is a function of component sensitivity, safety, system criticality and ultimately getting the most our of hydraulic and lube assets.

Fluid Life Extension

By Brad Bainbridge on Thu, Mar. 11, 2021

Extending Fluid Life Saves Money and Helps the Environment

Our mission is to make our customers as efficient as possible, and we achieve that with the highest quality filtration products and total system cleanliness strategies to maximize uptime, productivity and prevent costly fluid contamination related failures. Been there. Done that. Going to do it again tomorrow. But that's not the only way we make our customers efficient. Extending the useful life of in-service fluids pays big dividends in reliability, saves money on premature fluid replacement costs, and reduces the environmental impact of industry by reducing the amount of fluids used and discarded. Enhancing reliability, saving money, and protecting the environment are not only good business, they're our responsibility. To help reduce oil usage, let's first understand why fluids are condemned and prematurely replaced.

Bearing and Component Life Extension

By Brad Bainbridge on Thu, Mar. 04, 2021

Extending Bearing and Component Life and Saving Money 

Improving fluid cleanliness means reduced downtime, more reliable equipment, longer fluid life, and fewer maintenance hours. In addition, it also means reduced component replacement and repair expenses.

Understanding ISO Codes

By Brad Bainbridge on Thu, Feb. 25, 2021

ISO Cleanliness Codes Explained

The ISO Cleanliness Code (per ISO4406-1999) is used to quantify particulate contamination levels per milliliter of fluid at 3 sizes - 4µ, 6µ, and 14µ. It is expressed in 3 numbers (example 19/17/14) where each number represents a contaminant level code for the correlating particle size. The code includes all particles of the specified size and larger.Screen Shot 2021-02-23 at 2.50.37 PMIt is important to note that each time a code increases, the quantity range of particles is doubling. Inversely, as a code decreases by one the contaminant level is cut in half.
