Sawmill Distributor Testimonial:  "Since the completion date (of Hy-Pro total system cleanliness upgrade) they have had zero pump or servo valve failures.  This has related to huge savings on the cost of repairs of servos and pumps and also the loss production caused by the unscheduled downtime due to these failures.  He said the best part was when the pump repair vendor stopped in to see him and asked if he had done something wrong as to have had them take their rebuild business to another vendor.  Dave told him they had not changed, just were not having anymore failures, which they now realize is because of the work we have done getting them to clean oil." 

In-Plant Sawmill, Wood Yard & Logging Equipment Hydraulic System Filter Element Upgrades.  Upgrade hydraulic control filter elements on HPU pump discharge, return, re-circulation and pilot servo valves to Hy-Pro DFE rated elements to improve reliability, lower ISO codes and reduce hydraulic component repair & replacement.

Lube & Hydraulic Reservoir Water Removal and Conditioning. Hydraulic and lube reservoirs frequently have problems with water in lube oil.  Hy-Pro Vac-U-Dry vacuum dehydration systems rapidly remove free and dissolved water to control lube oil water levels to < 30ppm.  On-board over-sized particulate filtration allows the application of high efficiency filter elements down to 1 micron absolute to lower overall lube oil reservoir ISO codes and take pressure off of the main bearing lube duplex filters.  Large Vac-U-Dry systems are available to condition large lube or bulk oil reservoirs and the V1 mini Vac-U-Dry is ideal for smaller hydraulic reservoirs in-plant or on mobile equipment.

 Gearbox Filtration.  High viscosity industrial gearbox lubricants are typically treated with coarse on-board strainers or not filtration at all since the oil is commonly changed on a drain & refill routine.  Hy-Pro's innovative FSL off-line systems with generously sized filter elements are ideal for conditioning high viscosity lube oil with high efficiency glass media down to 1 micron absolute and also with water removal medias.  Save big money by avoiding premature gearbox fluid replacement and rebuilds.

Bulk Fluid Handling. Dedicated filtration and breathers on bulk storage tanks for lube and hydraulic oils and stand-by diesel fuels is the first line of defense in preventing one of the worst sources of particulate and water contamination, new fluids. Bulk storage tanks collect contaminants from delivery vehicles and through ineffective breather arrangements. Eliminate this dangerous source of contamination and before transferring new fluids into critical power plant operating systems. Filter carts are also a valuable tool for keeping fluids clean when transferred from storage to critical live systems.

Compressors. Large compressors typically utilize the same turbine oils used in the turbine lube reservoirs and are susceptible to many forms of contamination including varnish, particulate contamination and water contamination. Hy-Pro has a suite of solutions available to improve compressor reliability including DFE rated element upgrades, water removal elements, varnish mitigation and acid removal.

Thermal Oil Heating & Drying Systems. Thermal oil heating and kiln drying systems operate at high temperatures (~500F) and utilize very expensive specialty fluids.  Keeping these fluids clean can double their useful life creating a huge cost avoidance savings.  Contact Hy-Pro about specialty thermal oil filtration systems that can condition thermal oils while still hot and in use.
