Fluid Services – Fluid Handling, Management & More
The essential elements of fluid service can be products and systems, service or individual projects and services which are assigned to us by our customers.
The whole spectrum of fluid engineering is provided either by HYDAC Sales directly or by our certified Service Partners at home and abroad.
We also aim to train customers' specialist personnel through our HYDAC School. Indeed, the extensive range of further training courses and internal and external seminars and workshops on offer is focused exclusively on the needs of our customers. It is also constantly being updated in line with the latest technology and international legal requirements.
Discover the Fluid Service difference
Fluid Service is a total concept of technical services for our end users which aims to increase machine availability and optimise hydraulic equipment and systems. It should also help to reduce customers' operational costs.
HYDAC Fluid Service covers the whole spectrum of fluid technology, such as:
- Hydraulic oils
- Lubrication oils
- Cooling/cutting fluids
- Finally, cleaning and testing fluids
From fluid management to oil flushing services and fluid flow analysis, we do all we can to ensure your hydraulic equipment continues to work at its optimum with our fluid services.
From components, through sub-systems to systems
HYDAC boasts an experienced team of engineering managers, electronic engineers, electrical engineers, hydraulic engineers, mechanics and welders, ready for deployment anywhere around the world. They're available for everything from sighting, installation and connection right up to oil flushing services, pressure testing and actual commissioning.
What’s more, we have the right equipment and the right team for the commissioning of all kinds of systems, including:
We can also connect new componentry or combine subsystems, such as adding an offline filter system into an existing system.
In very urgent cases, we carry out emergency or express repairs. In such cases, you will get the repaired part back within a few hours, or we will fit it straight back into the system for you.
On-Site at your premises
Moreover, we undertake repairs for the whole range of HYDAC fluid management products as well as other makes of equipment. Depending on your requirements, we distinguish between repairs relating to individual orders with prior consideration of the cost, and a package using replacement and spare parts.
In addition, in very urgent cases, we carry out emergency or express repairs of fluid handling equipment. In such cases, you will get the repaired part back within a few hours, or we will fit it straight back into the system for you.
HYDAC provides technical services with regard to specifications, spare parts, repair, maintenance and optimisation of oils (including oil flushing services), water, lubrication, cooling lubricants and air. Indeed, we analyse your production and servicing workflow from the technical and commercial point of view of fluid power technology, and make a critical analysis of existing concepts and cost accounting. In this way, we move from the individual examination of the medium or component to a holistic approach.
CM-EXPERT: Collection of data, analysis, monitoring, control and archiving - with one single system!
CM-Expert is a powerful monitoring / archiving and control system. Its installation can be on any commercially available PC. Plus, its decentralised configuration makes the system extremely reliable, fail-safe and flexible for use in production systems. As regards to connecting sensors, operating and signal components, control tasks and data exchange with other systems, by using the data acquisition unit (MDE), the system has, therefore, no limits. Indeed, the MDE can record all common physical parameters. Therefore, the CM-Expert can process temperature, pressure, differential pressure, viscosity, water content, particles, flow rate, etc.
Areas of application:
- Steel works
- Wind turbines
- Plastics machines
- Paper machines
- Machine tools
- Molding presses
- Test facilities
- And also all other production processes requiring monitoring
Online Monitoring of production systems
Directly on-site or via remote enquiry! Our ‘remote' version of CM-Expert is perfectly applicable to the Wind Energy, Off Shore applications and mobile hydraulics. It informs the operator in real-time about the condition of a system and initiates service exactly when it is necessary. Pre-scheduled (thus expensive) maintenance has now become obsolete!
- Continuous monitoring and logging of critical system parameters
- Automated message generation where defined service-limits are reached (e.g. filter change)
- Plastics machines
- An immediate warning when it exceeds the defined limits
- It avoids unnecessary maintenance on systems where access is difficult
- The prevention of major breakdowns by means of early detection
- An optimisation of the maintenance intervals
- The reduction of maintenance and repair costs
- Also, the prevention of downtimes
- Finally, the prevention of consequential damage
HYDAC can assist with a wide range of fluid services, from fluid handling and microscopic analysis of different materials through to oil flushing services, fluid flow analysis and more. Contact us today to learn more.
- What is hydraulic systems?
Hydraulic system is an energy transmission system. In a hydraulic system, mechanical energy is transformed into hydraulic energy.
The hydraulic energy is used for energy transport, for energy control or regulation and is then converted back into mechanical energy again. The conversion from mechanical into hydraulic energy takes place using a hydraulic pump; the conversion from hydraulic into mechanical energy takes place through hydraulic cylinders motors.What is hydraulic filtration?
Hydraulic filtration is a mechanical separation procedure with the aim of separating a suspension into the components "solid matter" (contamination) and "fluids".What is hydraulic filter?
Hydraulic filter is a product designed to reduce the solid and aqueous contamination in the fluid and contribute towards ensuring that systems can be operated both reliably and economically, with long availability and low maintenance costs.What is hydraulic filter element?
Hydraulic filter element is a product buit into its respective housing in order to lower the contamination in the fluid to the desired value, and then to maintain and stabilize this level during the entire system operating time.What is hydraulic filter housing?
Hydraulic filter housing is a container which holds the filter elements.
In order to enhance the reliability of the whole hydraulic and lubrication system, filter housings are designed to have high fatigue strength.
The hydraulic filter housings are flow-optimized to be able to achieve a low pressure drop and a compact, space saving design. They therefore make a significant contribution to the economy of the whole system.What is hydraulic filter clogging indicator?
Hydraulic filter clogging indicator is a warning product designed to indicate visually and/or electrically when cleaning or changing the filter elements is necessary.
The operational safety of a system and efficient utilisation of a filter element can only be guaranteed if clogging indicators are used.
The filter clogging indicator will be different depending on the type of filter, vacuum, return line, or differential pressure clogging indicators.
