Five Must-Knows for Successful Hydraulic Filter Sizing

Every industry, machine, and component within a hydraulic system brings its own set of requirements, each affecting the other to eventually influence selection of a seemingly simple filter element. Before setting yourself up for unintentionally higher operating costs, you should not only select a filter based on pressure, flow, and cleanliness level required, but have a good feel for the big picture. Described here are five crucial pieces of information to know before sizing and selecting a filter.

1.Know the Application
Let’s start broad. First and foremost, understand the performance requirements of the filter. When it comes to accurately sizing a filter, performance requirements are often expressed in terms of Beta ratio, which is simply the ratio of particles entering the filter versus those exiting. Beta ratios can also be expressed as an efficiency percentage.

Today’s hydraulic filters are designed with media to trap and hold more contamination particles than ever for long life and low pressure drop.

For example, an application requiring a high-performance element will often have a Beta ratio exceeding 1,000, where 1,000 particles enter the filter but only one particle makes it out. Element performance in this scenario would be expressed in terms of a 99.9% efficiency. A reputable filter manufacturer will have documentation defining their element performance by the element’s pore-size rating. But having a strong understanding of the application’s performance requirements empowers you to enter the filter sizing and search stage equipped for success.

2. Know the Hydraulics
Once you’ve established the performance requirement of the application, it’s time to evaluate the hydraulic system. The hydraulic components installed in the circuit directly affect the type of hydraulic filter needed to function according to industry standards. This criterion drives an ISO-cleanliness code requirement that helps dictate the proper filter element type. As an example, a proportional valve in the circuit might require a 20/18/15 ISO-cleanliness code. To meet the standard set by the ISO code, this circuit requires a filter with either 3 or 6 µm absolute filtration.

Lifter Uses Hydraulic Rotary Actuator for High Maneuverability and Flexibility

A Midwest-based original equipment manufacturer (OEM) designs and builds waste-receptacle dumpers that attach to garbage trucks, recycling vehicles, and other waste-handling equipment. The lifter is attaches to the front or side of a vehicle or onto the dumpster of a front-load refuse truck. After an operator positions a receptacle cart onto the dumper, the latter then lifts and tilts the cart, spilling its contents into the vehicle. When the dumping cycle is complete, the lifter returns to a stowed position.

Advantages of using carts and cart lifters include reduced worker compensation claims, faster route times, and larger routes, since workers don’t tire as quickly. The carts also improve street sanitation, reducing health risks by helping prevent animals from disturbing waste left outside overnight.

The helical rotary actuator (painted black) provides 220 deg. of rotation, completely emptying carts.

The heart of the lifter mechanism is a helical hydraulic rotary actuator—a TorqBear Series Model T20-14E, manufactured by Parker Helac, Enumclaw, Wash. The 220 deg. of rotation produces a sharp and aggressive dumping angle that completely empties the contents of the cart. The actuator’s mounting feet with through drilled holes facilitate attachment to the lifter mounting plate: The feet are not flush with the actuator housing but, instead, are situated on the sides of the housing. This contributes to the compact nature of the mechanism by enabling the actuator to be positioned partially below the surface of the mounting plate. The through-shaft has extensions at both ends with straight spines that facilitate the easy attachment of the lifting arms—adapters with matching splines to which the arms are welded.

The Smarter Excavator: Burst of tech brings intelligent control to new mid-size models

Case D Series excavators feature the company’s Intelligent Hydraulic System with four integrated control systems working together to optimize performance. Andrew Dargatz, brand marketing manager, provides this overview of the feature: “The system actively manages and controls hydraulic power throughout the production cycle to maximize speed and efficiency while reducing fuel consumption by minimizing unnecessary hydraulic flow.” Playing supporting roles to the Intelligent Hydraulic System are a new electronically controlled pump, larger control valve and new sensors. Hardware improvements include a more robust boom and track and undercarriage design.

Four systems are involved in Intelligent Hydraulic Control. Boom Economy Control drops engine speed and uses gravity during boom down and swing. Auto Economy Control lowers engine rpm after controls are in a neutral state for 10 seconds and will do an auto shutdown, when enabled, after a preset idle period. Swing Relief Control regulates pump flow at the onset of the swing cycle. Spool Stroke Control monitors operator inputs and adjusts flow during dig cycles to optimize machine performance.

The sum of the parts is shorter cycle times, less rework, fewer overcorrections, greater precision for lift and placement, higher breakout forces and improvements in fuel economy of up to 14 percent.

Caterpillar has been getting a lot of attention for their new excavators, and rightfully so. When they introduced the 320 GC, 320 and 323 models last year, it had been 25 years since the last major redesign of the product – that would be 1992 – and they pulled out all the stops this time. Specifically, these three Next Generation models were built for digital connectivity, ease of use and semi-automated functionality.

Don’t Let the Wrong Hydraulic Fluid Slow You Down 

he efficiency of hydraulic power transmission is affected by flow and pressure losses within a machine. Flow losses, due to internal leakage through gaps in pumps, valves, and motors reduce the volume of fluid available to create machine motion. Pressure losses, due to mechanical and fluid friction, reduce the linear and rotary force available to lift or move the payload. The net effect is that volumetric losses decrease system efficiency while pressure losses increase energy consumption.

Putting Fluid Efficiency to the Test

Petro-Canada Lubricants teamed up with the Fluid Power Institute at Milwaukee School of Engineering to investigate how hydraulic fluids affect machine productivity and energy consumption. Milwaukee School of Engineering is a private university and home of the Fluid Power Institute, one of the leading academic fluid power research centers in North America.

In this study, a hydraulic dynamometer—consisting of a Danfoss Series 45 variable-displacement, axial-piston pump, and a Danfoss Series 90 fixed-displacement hydraulic motor—was used to evaluate fluid efficiency. This pump and motor combination is similar to a hydraulic system that might be found on the swing drive of an excavator, the propulsion system of a skid-steer loader, or the winch on a hydraulic crane.

Growth Prospects of Global Aircraft Hydraulic System Market During 2017 – 2025

Global Aircraft Hydraulic System Market: Introduction

Factors such as rise in global air travel and surge in new aircraft deliveries in countries such as China, Mexico, Brazil and India are estimated to be the key growth drivers in the global aircraft hydraulic system market.

Hydraulic systems have experienced a major transformation in terms of weight (they have become lighter over the years), simplification of inspection, ease of installation and maintenance requirements (latest hydraulic systems demand minimum maintenance). Hydraulic systems are not new to the aircraft market. In the past, aircrafts have used hydraulic brake systems. As the aircraft industry is evolving, manufacturers are coming up with newer systems. Hydraulic power systems were developed to meet the requirements of the modern-day aircraft industry.

Aircraft hydraulic systems enhance the efficiency of an aircraft’s components. Aircraft hydraulic systems facilitate easy operation of flaps, landing gear, brakes and flight control surfaces in aircrafts. The complexity of aircraft hydraulic systems depends on the size of the aircraft. For instance, smaller size aircrafts need hydraulic fluid only for wheel brakes. Larger size commercial aircrafts, on the other hand, require hydraulic systems that are complex and large in size. To achieve the essential consistency, an aircraft hydraulic system may consist of several subsystems. Each subsystem include actuators & filters, reservoir, pump, vane & spur gear, hydraulic fluid, pressure regulator, accumulator, valves and others (connectors).
