FluidSafe fluorescent additive saves money by detecting hydraulic fluid leaks early

06 March, 2015

FluidSafe fluorescent additive from Alerton International quickly detects hydraulic leaks in fluid power system hoses, fittings, seals and other components. This saves money by reducing operating costs. Undetected hydraulic fluid leaks cost the mining industry untold amounts of money. This includes the costs of fluid replacement, problematic system operation, equipment breakdown, fines for environmental contamination, and the possibility of fluid injection injuries to personnel. It has been estimated that in North America alone, over 100 million gallons (380 million litres) of hydraulic fluid could be saved every year if leakage was eliminated. FluidSafe is ideal for preventive maintenance. When used in combination with a SafetyBlu blue light inspection kit or blue lens filter specially designed to fit over a variety of mining lamps, it can easily detect fluid leaks that are usually very hard to find. The exact source of even extremely small leaks is pinpointed by its bright green fluorescent glow. Users have reported a 5% to 7% savings in hydraulic fluid consumption. At $5 per gallon ($1.30 per litre) for hydraulic fluid, these savings are equivalent to $0.25 to $0.35 per gallon (3.8 L) ─ vastly surpassing the cost of FluidSafe. FluidSafe is available in two specially formulated blends to work with both oil-based hydraulic fluids and oil-in-water emulsion hydraulic fluids. www.alertoninternational.com.

Subsea high pressure hoses for enhanced safety and increased uptime

24 February, 2015
Power management company Eaton has launched the Synflex 3395-32 and 3394-32 Thermoplastic Hoses, designed specifically to help increase uptime, safety and reliability for subsea oil and gas applications. The new high pressure hoses are a market exclusive for 2-inch hoses reinforced with Kevlar to withstand the demanding oil and gas industry in a lightweight package. “Uptime is crucial to the success of operations within the critical environments faced by the oil and gas industry each day,” said Ulrich Ammer, product marketing manager at Eaton. “Eaton’s Synflex offering helps keep projects up and running with light weight, durable, Kevlar-reinforced hoses that are safer and easier to handle in even the most challenging environmental conditions.” Light, flexible and buoyant By reinforcing each hose with Kevlar instead of steel wire, this latest Synflex product development is claimed to be considerably lighter, more flexible and more buoyant than competitive steel wire reinforced hoses. At less than 1.4 pounds per foot (lbs/ft.) in air, the 3395-32 weighs in 3 lbs/ft. lighter than steel wire hoses, considerable weight savings when factoring in the thousands of feet required for subsea applications. The weight reduction removes the need for specialty equipment to deploy down and reel up the hose, while making it easier and safer for workers to move or carry. Both the 3395-32 and 3394-32 hoses are built with P40 TL grade nylon core tubes, with two braids of Kevlar aramid fiber reinforcement and jacketed with black polyurethane, which is pin-pricked in accordance with API 17E. The Guardian abrasion protection and patent-pending detection overlay is separated from the base hose by a Mylar film with a linear monofilament to permit gas flow between the hose and the overlay. The 3395-32 hose is rated for 5,000 pounds per square inch (psi) working pressure and a 3-to-1 burst to WP ratio, while the 3394-32 hose is rated for 3750 psi working pressuring with a full API 17E rating and 4-to-1 burst to WP ratio. Both products exceed 200,000 impulse test cycles and can withstand operating temperatures ranging from -40 to 72 degrees Celsius. The hoses are currently available in continuous lengths up to 2500 feet. www.eaton.com/hydraulics
