H2O e H2O Plus: absorption water filter technology
Failures and unplanned downtime in a hydraulic system are often imputed to excessive levels of solid contamination but also water can be a serious contaminant as it can cause breakdowns but also affects the performance of the fluid.
The presence of water damages the components of the system increases service costs and, in the oil, induces oxidation and rust formation. It decreases the quality of lubrication, additives action and viscosity.
ABSOLUTE BETA | H2O water removal filter elements are specifically designed for the absorption of water from hydraulic fluids.
This water absorption technology configuration is an efficient method to remove water contamination. The water absorbing filter media, embedded in the filter material, removes water by a physical-chemical reaction. When absorbed, the water particles are locked physically by the gel formed and are not able to return to the fluid. This reaction is not reversible also with increased pressure.
However hydraulic oil passes through this media without interference. When the gel formation is complete, the media stops the water removal reaction. Water removal solutions can extend oil life, decrease system downtime, and increase the life of the equipment.
A wide range of FILTREC filter elements can be manufactured with water removal filters ABSOLUTE BETA | H2O, in addition, ABSOLUTE BETA | H2O PLUS can be an effective water absorption technology for separating water from hydraulic fluids and, at the same time, an optimal filtration of solid particles.
