Hydraulic Oil Centrifuge

Actuator seals and cylinder wear particles contaminate hydraulic oil. An industrial oil centrifuge separates all free water and particulate down to 0.5µ from hydraulic oil. Clean hydraulic oil ensures the durable operation of extrusion presses and other hydraulic machinery.

As long as the hydraulic oil remains clean, the operation can run according to the plan. Yet, when particles and water contaminate the hydraulic fluid, its properties deteriorate fast. This contamination causes costly production downtime due to the failure of pumps and other equipment. Modern hydraulic systems require the use of high grade, clean hydraulic oil to maximize equipment utilization. This level of cleanliness is assured by a disc-stack centrifuge with 8,000 g-forces.

The image above shows small hydraulic oil centrifuge systems with a built on pre-heaters. This system is ideal for servicing individual hydraulic fluid sumps in the aluminum extrusion or steel scrapping industry.
