Fluid condition monitoring: a must for your fluid management HYDAC has the key to preventive system maintenance
Clean fluids are fundamental to reliable system operation. Many companies know this and place value on fluid conditioning, fluid analysis and filling with clean oil. But when is a fluid really “clean”? What cleanliness requirements are there? Condition-based maintenance and system components that work flawlessly and are the cornerstones for high productivity. With fluid monitoring, you can detect damage early on and avoid system downtime. Find out more now!
Reliable, efficient, digital: smart condition monitoring with HYDAC
Contaminated fluids, expensive consequencesWhy contamination shouldn’t be ignored
It puts your hydraulic system and lubrication system at risk! Contamination in your fluids leads to devastating component damage and unscheduled system downtime. Inadequate lubrication increases wear in your system's parts and results in high costs.
But be careful: there are two types of contamination that you need to keep an eye on. In the case of particulate contamination, particles in the fluid cause component damage and clog filter elements. When water collects in oil, this is referred to as aqueous contamination. It leads to increased oxidation, causing pumps, valves and drives to rust. But don’t worry: we have the solution for you.
The solution: fluid condition monitoring with HYDACClean fluids protect your machine from failure
Contamination is a normal occurrence that cannot be prevented entirely. What matters is how quickly it is discovered so that you can take the action required early on to prevent further damage. The solution is obvious: continuous condition monitoring can help with this – mostly in the form of smart sensors. But system solutions, such as those for mobile use, are also part of the HYDAC range. Would you like to combine monitoring and cleaning in one system? No problem – we have all-inclusive solutions for bypass flow.
With these intelligent solutions, contamination is detected straight away. This allows you to take steps to tackle the problem – with predictive maintenance and service work planning. Discover our product range for fluids that achieve the highest cleanliness classes.
HYDAC sensors for fluid condition monitoring
