Brick Manufacturer

Customer - Well-known brick manufacturer depends on the reliable operation of their "Setting Machine" equipment running twenty four hours per day 365 days per year. Unexpected repairs are expensive and result in lost production. Equipment is hydraulic and has high particle counts.

Requirements - Expect reliable operation of hydraulic-powered equipment twenty four hours per day seven days per week. Expect minimization of unexpected down time due to component failures. Reduction of operational cost while extending the useful life of hydraulic oils.

Solution - Installed technologically-advanced hydraulic-fluid filtration and housings to reduce particle contamination to recommended ISO levels. An on-going oil sampling schedule, to monitor system generation of particles, was established. Added check valve to the system to safeguard against unexpected pressure spikes.
