AC-LN Low Noise Oil/Air Coolers

January 2014

The air flow of the cooler has been optimized by the use of a more efficient axial fan and a variety of housing modifications. As a result, the AC-LN series 8-14 is especially efficient and quiet.
The cooler can also be used in the bypass flow by attaching a boost pump. An additional filter enables continuous filtration of the medium; the cooler can then be connected as required.

Hazardous Area Filter Trolley

August 2013

The HAFT (Hazardous Area Filter Trolley) is an offline filtration system for cleaning hydraulic fluid in ATEX & IECEX rated zones. Filtration of hydraulic fluid is vitally important for reduced downtime and to prolong component lifetime and system performance.

The trolley utilises the efficiency of Hydac Stat-free® filter elements to ensure any contamination in a system is removed while preventing static build-up on the element.

Forthcoming Events

Hannover Messe 2013

Between the 8th and 12th of April this year Hydac will be attending the world’s most important technology show of the year.

Hannover Messe is one of the most significant events of the technological industry worldwide and is a powerful driver of investment in new technology and automation. The industry deals especially with global trends such as sustainability, mobility, urbanisation and the lack of resources.

Hannover Messe 2013 will place a strong emphasis on industrial automation and IT, energy and environmental technologies, power transmission and control, industrial subcontracting, manufacturing technologies, services and R&D.

You can visit Hydac in hall 22 stand B12 where we will be showcasing our products and services. For more details on Hannover Messe 2013 please visit www.hannovermesse.de/home

Elimination of Static Electricity in Hydraulic and Lubricating Systems

June 2012

Stat-Free® elements are designed to prevent the generation of static electricity by selecting filter media which does not generate significant electric charge when used with low conductive oil.

The introduction of new hydraulic and lubricant oils which conform to the latest ash-free standards through the elimination of traditional anti-wear additives, mainly zinc, has meant that these oils have been rendered non-conductive. Non-conductive fluids passing through high performance filters with a modest hydraulic load will produce a static charge which will be carried in the fluid around the system.

Problems occur in the following areas:

  1. Static discharge through the filter element burns holes in the filter media rendering the filter useless.
  2. Static discharge in the oil will burn it and cause it to age prematurely.
  3. Static discharge can create explosive hazards, e.g. in systems and hazardous zones.
  4. Static discharge could affect electronic equipment and either damage or cause inconsistent malfunction from electromagnetic waves.

The solution is to fit a HYDAC Stat-Free® filter for new build systems or a Stat-Free® element for existing systems.

Hydac have a comprehensive range of elements which can be retrofitted for most makes of filter and offer an extremely cost-effective solution to this potential problem.

Types of systems likely to be affected:

  • Mobile hydraulic systems employing high performance filters with a modest hydraulic load.
  • Industrial high flow hydraulic systems using mineral or synthetic fluids employing filters with a modest hydraulic load.
  • Lubrication systems of medium to high flow with high performance filters.

For advice on your particular application please contact the Fluid Care department on 01993 866366.

If you have a significant plant and require a health check, we would be happy to investigate and give recommendations.

The New ASPlight as a web application

ASPlight is a new, simplified software from HYDAC Accumulator Technology which enables you to calculate all the necessary parameters such as pressure, volume and temperature for the isothermal or adiabatic charging and discharging processes of an accumulator.
It is operated via a single window and is language neutral. The design is comparable to a pocket calculator. Simulation curves are not shown.

ASPlight is aimed at the user who is tasked with determining the essential accumulator parameters within a short time. The software will be a particularly useful tool in your role as sales consultant in the field, by providing quick, straightforward calculations for hydraulic accumulators.

The ASPlight software can be run as a web application (without installation) or downloaded to your PC or laptop.

Plastic Tank Systems from One Source

Plastic tanks are mainly used where a strongly limited assembly space is given, which means that in many cases complex designs are necessary, like in mobile hydraulics. Special advantage: the customer achieves a customer-related complete system, tailored to his demands including hydraulic filter, air breather, level indicator, and screw connection – everything from one source. Plastic tank systems actively contribute to the optimisation of manufacturing costs of mobile working machinery and to the reduction of logistic and transportation costs.

Return Line Filter RFM Black

The new RFM Black filters have been developed to fulfil customers demands on a cost-efficient, but nevertheless, high-quality return line filter standard version. Since the filters are highly reduced in weight and since the number of clogging indicator connections is reduced to the most important ones, these filters can be offered with a considerably lower price. Until now, two sizes were provided (RFM 165 and 180) – others on enquiry.
