Seven steps to hydraulic cleanliness

01 December, 2015

Clean, contaminant-free oil within hydraulic systems is well known to be vital in prolonging the service life of components. However, what is less commonly understood are the factors which determine the appropriate level of cleanliness for a given system. Terry Davis, national technical manager at Brammer, introduces ISO 4406:99 and the seven steps that help establish targets and in turn optimise the longevity of hydraulic systems.

Eaton unveils Synflex 33CH-08 thermoplastic hose

30 October, 2015

Designed for subsea oil and gas applications, Eaton has introduced the Synflex 33CH-08 high collapse resistant thermoplastic hose. The new hose features a liner tube made of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), which helps handle fluids with higher concentrations of acid and lowers permeability with methanol and other similar fluids. Typical applications for the 33CH-08 include for instance hydraulic flying leads, Installation/Intervention Work Over Control (IWOC) umbilical hoses, high flow rate applications and methanol injection.


Connection is key to fluid power system efficiency

30 October, 2015

As equipment and technology advances, it has never been more important that modern fluid power systems perform safely and precisely. However, partnering one manufacturers hose with another’s coupler can seriously jeopardise this. Andrew Dawes, hydraulics product manager at Eriks, explains how to avoid the common pitfalls of specification and why solid connections hold the key to true system efficiency.

Phoenix PG-Therm successfully seals industrial turbocharger

25 September, 2015

Traditionally, high temperature sealing applications (>500degC) have proved difficult for gasket materials. Many standard gasket materials suffer rapid thermal degradation at temperatures, leading to a loss in sealing performance and eventual failure. Flexible graphite, which is known as a high-temperature material, will suffer oxidation at these temperatures resulting in weight loss and an inability of the gasket or seal to support the compression load. Invariably this will result in seal failure and leakage.
