Selecting and Applying Hydraulic Filters for a More Reliable System
Presenter: Leonard Bensch, Consultant, Pall Corporation
Historically, particulate contamination in the fluid in a hydraulic system has been the major cause of component and system failure. Today, contamination control is much more a science than in the past. With the technology available today, there is no reason to continue to allow dirt to be the major machine life limiter.
Filters are installed on nearly every system with the intent to control the contamination. ISO standards exist for evaluating most performance characteristics of a filter, and a new ISO document, ISO/TR 15640, covers the general principles and guidelines for selecting and applying hydraulic filters. This webinar presents a synopsis of the new ISO document, including discussions of contamination and the damage it causes; methods of contaminant measurement and reporting; and methods for determining and setting the required cleanliness level to protect a system. Finally, guidelines are given for filter selection and application.
The webinars are free to employees of NFPA members. For those from companies that are not members of NFPA, there is a $50 charge per webinar.
