Hose and system flushing service from Pirtek Birmingham

15 February, 2017

Pirtek Birmingham's portable flushing rig is combined with a filtration unit and laser particle counter to achieve and measure cleanliness levels. Operated by fully trained hydraulic engineers, the rig is used to clean hydraulic hoses prior to installation to prevent contaminants from entering the ring main and also to clean complete systems where contamination is present.

The flushing service – available on-site or at Pirtek’s Birmingham depot – is also suitable for: any hydraulic system not running correctly due to contamination; mobile plant or machines; new plant installations prior to commissioning; and any hydraulic system following a major overhaul. Hoses and systems are cleaned to NAS 1638 and ISO 4406 standards.

Hydraulic engineering service

Pirtek Birmingham explains that its engineers can also design, create and install any hydraulic system to meet specific customer requirements.

Supplied with a full installation warranty, these systems can also be covered by Pirtek's Total Hose Management Programme, which can minimise downtime throughout the lifetime of the plant.

Counting the cost

Andy Connell, managing director at Pirtek Birmingham and Redditch, said: “We provide a gold-standard flushing and cleaning service from conception to installation. We consider this type of service to be critical because approximately 75% of hydraulic system failures occur as a direct result of contamination. The cost of this contamination can be astronomical.

“All companies using hydraulic equipment should seriously consider flushing the hoses they add to their hydraulic system as part of their preventative maintenance plan. This is where our equipment and specially trained hydraulic engineers can help.”

Pirtek Birmingham's services are aimed at supporting a range of industrial sectors and disciplines; including aerospace, manufacturing and testing. Pirtek Birmingham can be contacted on: 0121 327 8678, or at: andy.connell@pirtekbirmingham.co.uk
