Preventing contaminants (dirt) from entering your hydraulic system reduces potential system failure by 75%

Dirt plays a large role in system inefficiency. In reality, dirt is a minute abrasive “gravel” which travels through a system and internally deteriorates and destroys sensitive hydraulic components, causing reduced efficiency and, eventually, system failure. If not properly prevented the presence of dirt can initiate one or more of the following undesirable conditions:

  • Internal Leakage - or slippage, lowering the efficiency of pumps, motors, and cylinders, wasting power and increasing heat. Additionally, valves will not be able to control flow and pressure accurately.
  • Corrosion - damage to delicate component parts from fluid degradation.
  • Sticking Parts - causing erratic or intermittent component operation.
