The Hallmark of Pro Oil SA Hydraulic Oils
When it comes to hydraulic oils, cleanliness plays a pivotal role, alongside quality base oils and additives. There are many variances of hydraulic oils that we blend, namely:
1. Hydraulic oil: This is the most commonly used product in a wide range of day-to-day equipment and applications.
2. HVI hydraulic oils: High Viscosity Index (HVI) hydraulic oils find applications in various sectors, including mining, marine, agricultural, and industrial sectors, where temperature variations are significant factors.
3. Zinc-Free hydraulic fluids (also known as ashless hydraulic oils): These fluids are employed in situations where certain components are made of silver or have silver-plated parts. Conventional zinc-based oils can react with silver, leading to foaming and subsequent pitting, causing rust.
4. Bio-Degradable hydraulic oils: These oils are formulated using naturally biodegradable ester-based oil. They are commonly used in specific marine applications, agricultural sectors, and certain mining operations.
5. Fire-resistant hydraulic oils: These oils consist of an aqueous solution containing glycols, with a water content of less than 35%. They are utilized in environments with a high risk of fire, such as steel industry forging, heat treatment, and casting shops, especially in die casting areas and underground hard coal mines.
Keeping hydraulic oils clean is like the secret sauce for a well-oiled machine - pun intended. It's the unsung hero working behind the scenes, ensuring that every cog and gear in the hydraulic system moves with finesse. Let's take a closer look at why the cleanliness of your hydraulic oils should be right at the top of your maintenance checklist. Here are eight simple explanations that break it down for you:
1. Say No to Premature Aging: Imagine you're cruising down the highway, but your engine's running on dirty fuel. It's not going to perform at its best and the same goes for hydraulic systems. Contaminants like dirt, metal particles, and water in hydraulic oil will lead to wear and tear. This isn't just about wear; it's about components giving up before their time, leading to costly replacements.
2. Dirty Fluid, Reduced Efficiency: You know how a clogged drain can mess up your shower? Contaminants in hydraulic oil mess up the flow in the system. This causes friction and heats things up unnecessarily, making the system less efficient. Energy that should be powering your machine ends up wasted on overcoming these tiny obstacles.
3. Not So Smooth Moves: Hydraulic systems are all about smooth movements, but contaminants gum up the works. They mess with the oil's ability to lubricate, making parts grind against each other more than they should, which causes wear. Think of it like dancing in tight shoes – not smooth, not graceful, and not good for the long run.
4. Filters Aren't Fans of Contaminants: Filters are like the bouncers at a club; they keep out the riff-raff, but contaminants are persistent party crashers. They clog filters, blocking the flow of fluid. This slows things down and can lead to parts not getting the fluid they need. It's like your machine getting dehydrated, which causes increased heat – not a good scene.
5. Sneaky Seal Sabotage: Seals are also heroes of the hydraulic world. They keep the fluids in check, but contaminants can be troublemakers; they sneak in and damage these seals. The result? Leaks. That's not just a messy situation; it's a gateway for more contaminants to enter the system.
6. Oil's Identity Crisis: Contaminants can mess with the oil's mojo. Water, for instance, can cause the oil to break down, losing its ability to do its job. It's like oil having an identity crisis – it forgets it's supposed to lubricate and protect, not just look busy.
7. Oh, Sensors, Really? Sensors are like the eyes and ears of the hydraulic system. But guess what? Contaminants can mess up their readings. Think of it like wearing foggy glasses – you're not going to get an accurate picture of what's going on. In the hydraulic world, inaccurate readings lead to inaccurate actions.
8. The Cost Factor: Let's talk money. A dirty hydraulic system is like a demanding pet. It needs more attention, more frequent oil changes, and more filter replacements. And all that equals more money spent, plus let's not forget the downtime for maintenance. It's like a double whammy for your wallet.
