HYDAC Air-X technology enables significant tank reduction
To reduce the tank size, the system needs perfect air separation. This can only be achieved by combining the tank with an optimized filtration strategy. Our innovative Air-X technology offers a range of features that ensure maximum air separation in the system:
- Low discharge velocities
- Reducing oil turbulence in the tank
- Uniform mixture of oil in the tank
- For flow entry from below, an outlet above oil level is possible
- Coalescence of the air bubbles at integrated degassing windows and thus faster separation
Only using Air-X technology makes it possible to construct the tank with more compact dimensions—combined with improved air separation—as the follow video demonstrates:
The advantages of using Air-X technology:
HYDAC offers a wide range of services and customer service In addition to the innovative Air-X technology, we offer extensive consultation and services:
We provide various simulations for computer-aided optimization of systems. This includes simulations of:
Lab and field tests
We also perform experimental testing of tank systems in the laboratory or directly at the machine in the field. We have a unique specially developed air-content sensor that we can use for this purpose.
In our development center, the HYDAC FluidCareCenter®, we pool our filter expertise and application knowledge with our extensive experience in the topic of “air in oil.” We will gladly provide you with expert individual consultation regarding tank optimization.
