Parker’s new portable purification systems are designed to automatically remove water and particulate contamination from hydraulic oils, improving the performance of industrial machinery.

Developed for use in paper and steel mills, power-generation plants and other industrial and aerospace applications, the filter trolleys allow maintenance to be reduced considerably, while eliminating downtime costs.

These latest fuel filtration trolley units are ideal for use as part of regular maintenance schedules, removing 100 per cent of free water and between 80 and 90 per cent of dissolved water from fluid systems through heating and distilling contaminated oil.

This eliminates the problems associated with water contamination, including corrosion, reduction of lubrication properties and reduced dielectric strength of transformer fluid.

Filtration is carried out by the integrated Parker Racor FBO filters, through which oil is automatically circulated to remove moisture and particles effectively, even under high pressure.

The filter trolleys have been designed for automatic operation, increasing running time and cutting labour costs, with a built-in programmable thermostat to maintain a constant oil temperature for optimum purification.

Additionally, a high-temperature safety circuit shuts down the heater if the primary contactors fail, meaning that oil can never exceed 121C, to prevent system damage and ensure worker safety.

The self-contained units are just 1m high and weigh around 30kg, with caster wheels, forklift guides and lifting eyes, making them easy to move and transport.

They have been designed specifically to withstand operation within a demanding industrial environment and feature a robust stainless steel construction.

Furthermore, the compact dimensions of the units enables them to be moved quickly and simply to wherever they are needed on the factory floor.

There is an additional option for the filter trolleys to incorporate Parker’s IcountPD laser particle detector to provide early warning of low, medium and high contamination levels cutting the cost of maintenance, repair and overhaul still further.
