New pressure intensifier for wind power applications

Scanwill Fluid Power has launched a new series of MP-2000 XP pressure solutions that are designed with an additional side outlet port, so that the oil from the high-pressure side is returned directly to tank. This ensures the intensifier and the cylinder are always supplied with cool and filtrated oil. The MP-2000 XP series is

Trends in filters and lubricants

By one estimate, 80% of all breakdowns in lubricated machines are related to pollutants in the oil. Even in small amounts, contaminants can increase operating costs associated with maintenance, downtime, or equipment replacements. Enough particles measuring only 1-μm in size (invisible to the human eye) can knock out a 20-ton gearbox. The solution: rigorous particle

Industry and academia invited to submit presentations for FPIRC 2015

STAUFF LPM II particle monitor offers increased precision and resolution

The LPM II Particle Monitor from STAUFF uses newly developed high-performance LEDs, which provide a precise image of the degree of contamination in the hydraulic system. Thanks to its eight measuring channels, it is possible to distinguish particle sizes of between 4 μm and 70 μm. This lets users assess the contamination even at higher
