Mag-Shield®X Magnetic Filtration
Why add Mag-Shield®X ?
Mag-Shield®X is the ideal inline magnetic filtration solution for hydraulic and fluid systems. These high-capacity canister-style filters easily complement your existing filtration and protect your system by removing over 98% of ferrous particles on each circulation, without flow restriction or cavitation. There is no other inline filter available with the same magnetic surface and effectiveness to improve reliability and lower operating costs.
Mag-Shield®X helps you:
- Minimise failure of components like pumps and transmissions
- Protect the system instantly during failures and repairs
- Get greater longevity & performance from OEM filters
- Improve your machine availability
- Lower your maintenance costs
How Mag-Shield®X works
Mag-Shield®X is contained within a traditional filter housing for easy installation and maintenance – simply install alongside your existing filtration system. Rare earth magnets in the multi-rod design work to collect ferrous contamination that the standard OEM media style filters cannot. This product continually protects your recirculating fluid system from normal wear contaminants as well as debris from failing components and repair.
The unique design of Mag-Shield®X allows you to collect the wear material for analysis as part of your condition monitoring program. It’s ideal for heavy machinery, mobile mining equipment, stationary systems and other applications.
THE BENEFITS OF MAG-SHIELD®X INLINE PREFILTRATION
Mag-Shield®X gives you cost-effective protection for both normal operation and in the case of component failures.
EXTEND COMPONENT LIFE
As these filters capture ferrous particles that are too small for standard OEM filters to catch, they can significantly improve component life. One client has documented an 18% improvement in their component longevity.
PREVENT LARGER PROBLEMS
Mag-Shield®X could mean the difference between a component failure and a catastrophic system failure. This makes magnetic inline filtration a low-cost investment for peace of mind.
GET BACK TO WORK FASTER
The use of the Mag-Shield®X helps reduce system clean-up time after a failure and allows your machine to get back into service sooner, with instant ferrous filtering.
MINIMISE FOLLOW-ON FAILURES
By capturing iron contamination when a failure occurs and by filtering 100% of the fluid when a machine is restarted following repairs, Mag-Shield®X dramatically reduces secondary hydraulic failures.
REDUCE YOUR REPAIR BILL
Not all failures are preventable. Mag-Shield®X reduces the costly impact of failures by capturing a significantly higher quantity of ferrous contamination than OEM filters alone.
EASY ACCESS AND SERVICE
Mag-Shield®X is contained within a traditional filter housing to allow for easy maintenance and simple installation. It’s also simple to assess collected material.
Case Studies in contamination control
Mag-Shield®X can save your business from the damage and high costs that contamination can otherwise cause. They can also bring ease of mind and support increased growth and revenue. Little wonder that many clients have extended the use of Mag-Shield® over their entire heavy machinery fleets.
Client:Mining company in Australia
A CAT 797F off-road truck experienced a brake failure. From past experience the operator knew follow-on failure was a risk, due to the difficulty in completely removing all contamination from the system during repairs.
After the installation of a Mag-Shield® filter, oil samples showed an immediate and significant drop in iron particulates and PQ levels. The secondary pump failure was avoided entirely, preventing expensive repair costs
Client:North American Construction Group
This business was experiencing secondary failures in excavators following cylinder failures and repairs. Uncontained contamination would pass into pumps, causing pump cavitation, pump damage and costly downtime.
This client saw a ROI in just one year and large savings by installing Mag-Shield®. Over five years of having these filters installed, hydraulic failure rate fell 45%, repair costs fell 52% and downtime per event fell 48%
