Diesel Fuel Purification Applications The risk of contamination plagues diesel fuel from the refinery to the point of use. Proper filtration and purification of bulk diesel fuel must encompass both solid contaminants and water removal. Kaydon Filtration’s diesel fuel purification solutions are designed to provide the needed level of fuel cleanliness for today’s high-performance diesel […]View More
The components in an Electro-hydraulic control (EHC) system are very sensitive to particulate contamination due to very tight tolerances in these components. One of the most critical safeguards for protecting an EHC system is the use of specialized synthetic hydraulic fluids. These fluids are made to withstand higher operating temperatures and are also more resistant […]View More
Hydraulic Oil Filtration Hydraulic oil is not just a lubricant, it’s also the critical means for delivering power as it is transferred through the hydraulic system. It must exhibit all of the traits of a lubricant as well as possess characteristics that allow for the proper transfer of power. Hydraulic fluids have to work harder […]View More
Lubrication Oil Filtration Lubricant oils are used for protecting gears, bearings and other moving components in power generation turbines and other elements of industrial equipment. The oil reduces friction, which helps to control heat that can originate with friction between moving parts. Reducing friction and minimizing associated heat contributes to longer life for moving components. Oil […]View More
Turbine Oil Conditioning Applications The goal of any plant engineer responsible for the operation of a turbine is to maintain peak operational efficiency. The condition of the turbine oil should meet the equipment manufacturer’s recommendations at a minimum. However, exceeding these recommendations is the best practice. Damage to the overall system due to particulate or […]View More
Oils have the potential to create varnish – an insoluble film that forms inside the lubrication and hydraulic systems. If left unchecked, varnish contamination leads to valve sticking and the formation of deposits on metal surfaces throughout these systems. If these deposits occur on heat exchangers or reservoir walls, the varnish reduces the equipment’s ability […]View More
