Hydraulic unit in a wheel rolling mill
Objectives: Prevention of condensation and permanently good oil quality
Water and dirt particles are 80% the cause of damages in hydraulic systems, gears and bearings. In many industrial companies extremely environments are everyday followers and sources of high costs.
In July 2013, a GIEBEL Adsorber® was mounted on a hydraulic unit in a German wheel rolling mill, together with a 600l fresh oil filling.
During a 4-month observation period, the oil was checked monthly for contamination and, in particular water content in a laboratory. During this time the hydraulic unit was used unchanged and operated continuously. It was exposed to the usual influence conditions in a rolling mill without restrictions.
The result speaks for itself: No water in the oil! The amount of water absorbed was unchanged over the entire period and the oil quality was on fresh oil level! However, the previous year's figures, without GIEBEL Adsorber®, point out a significant difference.
