Assembly and commissioning

Assembly and commissioning

1. Remove the protective plug on the bottom of the adsorber.

2. Screw the adsorber onto the system.

Maintenance

Adsorbers of the VG-D series are not serviced, but completely replaced.

Assembly and commissioning

0% -> 100%

If the colour of the indicator bottom has changed completely, the adsorber must be replaced.

    1. Unscrew the adsorber from the system and dispose of it.

    2. Screw on a new adsorber.

 


Spare parts and storage

If the disposable adsorber is completely saturated, it must be replaced by a new adsorber.

- Activated carbon

Pre-assembled in the housing and packed airtight.

 

Order of spare parts

For a constant operational readiness of the adsorber and thus of the plant, make sure that a replacement adsorber is always in stock.
The time until the activated carbon is fully loaded and the colour change from colourless to brown and thus the service life of the adsorber depends on various factors:

  • Number and duration of flow and loading intervals.
  • Quantity of oil particles and mists emitted.

 

Storage of adsorbers

All articles filled with activated carbon are packed airtight. To avoid damage to the activated carbon, it must be stored in dark and dry rooms at -10°C to +30°C.

 


Disposal

At the end of its useful life, the device must be disposed of in accordance with the relevant legal regulations.
The loaded activated carbon must be disposed of according to the absorbed substance (e.g. hydraulic or gear oil).
Activated carbon and silica gel are not classified as hazardous substances under European Union legislation (Regulation EC No 1272/2008). It is not subject to compulsory labelling according to EC Directive (67/548/EEC or 1999/45/EC). Activated carbon and silica gel are not classified as substances hazardous to health or the environment.

 


Risk and hazard analysis

1. Oil flows out of the plant
Porous seals
Air containing oil can flow from the adsorber into the environment at the porous points. This means that no protection against oil mist in the air is possible.

Saturated activated carbon
When the activated carbon is saturated, it can no longer absorb oil. As a result, oil particles from the system are released into the air.

Air flow rate too high

2. Positive or negative pressure builds up in the system
Air flow rate too high
Too high an air flow rate can cause over- or underpressure in the system.

Contaminated filter element
The filter unit can be clogged by dirt particles and can therefore build up pressure in the system.

Activated carbon saturated
Once the activated carbon is completely saturated, oil can deposit and clog the adsorber.

3. Adsorber is damaged
Material resistance
When selecting the adsorber, the ambient and operating conditions should be considered. An aggressive environment or liquid in the container can damage the adsorber.

Temperature range
The ambient and operating temperatures should not exceed or fall below the specified range, otherwise the adsorber may be damaged.

Improper handling
Incorrect or improper handling can damage the adsorber. The recommended installation must be observed.

Strong vibrations
Strong vibrations of the plant can damage the adsorber.

Pressure range of the system
The adsorber should not be exposed to a positive or negative pressure above 0.5 bar, otherwise the housing may be damaged.

Cleaning of the adsorber
For external cleaning of the adsorber, the use of a mild soap in combination with water is recommended. The use of brake cleaner will damage the adsorber and is no reason for complaint.

 


Maintenance plan

1. Check seals for wear

Check    The O-ring installed on the adsorber must be checked for perfect condition. For this purpose, the seal at the connection should be checked for brittleness.
Cycle    Half-yearly
Measures    In case of existing damage, a new O-ring or a new adsorber should be used.

2. Visual inspection of the activated carbon

Check    The loading condition of the activated carbon must be determined by visual inspection of the adsorber. The colour white indicates that the activated carbon can still adsorb oil and that air is cleaned. If the activated carbon is completely saturated, the colour changes from white to brown.
Cycle    Half-yearly
Measures    With loaded activated carbon, a new adsorber with fresh activated carbon should be used.

3. Visual inspection of the adsorber

Check    The adsorber, including the connection, must be visually checked for damage. Damage can occur due to various environmental or operating conditions.
Cycle    Yearly
Measures    If the adsorber is damaged, it must be replaced completely to ensure full functionality.
