Challenges

Asset protection is front of mind when you’re running pressurised fluid systems, be it in mining, manufacturing, oil & gas or the construction industry. From running stationary machining tools like CNC lathes to entire fleets of mobile mining equipment, these fluid systems can be highly precise – and expensive to repair and replace if things go wrong. Prevention and proactive protection is key.

Reducing hydraulic & fluid system contamination

MagShield®’s high-efficiency magnetic filtration helps to protect your assets and lower operating costs by capturing all ferrous particles from the fluid system. These innovative solutions are designed to work with standard OEM filtration systems to improve the longevity and performance of the fluid system. The result: fewer failures, lower operating costs and a clear path to productivity.

Solution

Ferrous contamination is estimated to represent
between 35% and 40% of the
contamination typically filtered using traditional
media filtration under normal operation, and up to 90% upon a component failure.

Ferrous contamination is problematic for hydraulics and pressurised fluid systems even at the minute level. Heavy-duty equipment tends to be more exposed to these hard particles due to high pressures and low operating tolerances. Ferrous material can accelerate wear in components including transmissions, valves and final drives, and send OEM filters into bypass. Ultimately, this contamination can lead to catastrophic failures if it remains in the system.

MagShield® magnetic filtration has already saved many businesses from the costs of:

  • Premature component replacement
  • Downtime as equipment failures are resolved
  • Secondary hydraulic failure as a result of uncontained primary failure
  • Projects falling behind schedule
  • Further contamination during repairs or maintenance
  • Follow-on impacts on steering or braking components, and
  • Potential damage to business reputation

Filtering out the various types of hydraulic contamination helps to guarantee smooth, reliable operation and optimises the life cycle of system components. Proactive asset protection pays off – in fact, many clients have seen a return on investment within just one year.
