Clean, DRY Oil for Lubrication and Hydraulic Systems Now a Reality

Clean, DRY Oil for Lubrication and Hydraulic Systems Now a Reality

While it has largely been understood that clean, dry oil is desirable for lubrication and hydraulic fluids, attaining it has not been practical or cost effective for most users. The high cost of conventional oil purifiers usually mandates that they are dedicated only to fairly large and/or expensive systems, or that they be used periodically among several applications. However, periodic conditioning does not ensure continuous water removal for each system. These challenges have prevented most lubrication and hydraulic systems from being able to benefit from the use of advanced water removal technology.

UltiDrii changes that. The patented UltiDri oil dehydrator was designed to offer Porous Mediaas advanced water removal technology in a cost effective, compact size and format which can be used as a permanent installation on individual reservoirs or systems. UltiDri removes all free, emulsified and dissolved water down to 25 ppm or lower.

UltiDri dehydrators have been designed with ease-of-use in mind. Operation is simple, requiring no routine operator intervention. There are no valves or controls to adjust. No liquid level gauges to monitor. No drains to deal with. Simply turn on the switch and the UltiDri does the rest. Continuously. Reliably.

Part of the reason for this is that, with the exception of an oil pump, there are no moving parts. As oil flows through the UltiDri, it passes through an internal membrane which distributes the oil into a relatively thin film over a large contactor area. The system's integral air dryer provides the extremely dry air used to create a driving force for mass transfer of the water from the oil. The removed moisture is exhausted to atmosphere in the form of harmless water vapor. This internal advanced separation system prevents oil and oil vapor from being expelled into the surrounding environment.

All UltiDri dehydrators come with Porous Mediaas high-performance GENESISS coreless filters. The GENESIS technology ensures high fluid quality while simultaneously lowering overall operating costs and reducing waste.

There is an UltiDri for virtually any application, available in flow rates from less than 1 gpm to 32 gpm or larger. Systems are optimized based on a multitude of factors (oil type, oil viscosity, reservoir size, typical water content, etc.), and may be customized for OEMMs and packagers.

UltiDri dehydrators significantly reduce the cost of oil dehydration, by 50 - 75% as compared with conventional oil purifiers! This finally makes the concept of dryy in Clean, Dry Oil a reality for virtually any application or reservoir size on a continuous basis.

New Sauer-Danfoss H1 bent axis motors

New Sauer-Danfoss H1 bent axis motors join the successful H1 family, providing further improvements in efficiency, reliability, and flexibility.

NEUMMNSTER, GERMANY SAUER-DANFOSS INC. (NYSE:SHS) Sauer-Danfoss has released its new H1 80cm3 and 110cm3 bent axis motors, the first sizes in a new series of motors designed to complement the growing family of H1 axial piston pumps. With the introduction of the H1 bent axis motors, Sauer-Danfoss is now able to provide a complete H1 transmission system, optimized around electrical control. The H1 motors not only provide OEMs with improvements in reliability and flexibility, but also provide higher overall efficiency, resulting in lower fuel consumption and reduced life cycle costs.

The new H1 bent axis variable displacement motors have been designed to ensure outstanding reliability and high quality. Optimized for electrical control, they are fully PLUS+1TM Compliant, enabling seamless integration with Sauer-Danfosss electronic machine control architecture - Plug and Performm. And with an IP 69 rating, the electrical controls are able to withstand the harshest working environments.

We are pleased to introduce the H1 bent axis motors, which perfectly complement the successful H1 pump familyy says Hans-Peter Nissen, Product Portfolio Manager, With proven 32 degree bent axis technology, zero degree capability and higher overall efficiency, our new motors offer OEMs a number of significant advantages. The H1 propel system provides improved horsepower management, and enables advanced anti-slip or wheel-assist control functions..

High Efficiency
An extensive simulation and testing program for the H1 bent axis motors has resulted in significant improvements in overall efficiency and an extremely low pressure drop in the galleries. This helps improve fuel economy and frees power for other vehicle functions, enhancing operating performance and increasing productivity. Tier 4 and Euro IIIb emission standards will require intelligent utilization of engine power,, says Nissen, and this will be strongly supported by our new H1 family of products..

Zero Degree Capability
A key feature of the new H1 motors is their zero degree capability. The ability to seamlessly reduce the angle to zero degrees means there is no torque interruption, or sudden change in speed when switching from, for example, work range to travel range. This enhanced control is not only more precise, but also improves the feel of the system during operation. Zero degree capability enables OEMs to provide additional features,, says Nissen, including accurate anti-slip and torque control functions, which increase vehicle productivity and optimize power utilizationn The zero degree capability also enables a wheel assist solution without the need for additional technology. Even true two-speed applications, for example a crop sprayer, can be supported by this great feature,, states Nissen.

Optimized for Electrical Control
Electronic engine management and electrical vehicle control is the future of mobile machinery. As such, H1 motors have been designed around advanced electrical controls, which allow a range of vehicle control concepts to be produced using the same motor hardware. By adjusting the software parameter settings, the system can be optimized to match the requirements of specific vehicle functions.

Designed for Quality and Reliability
H1 motors have been developed around a common design concept, in order to ensure outstanding motor performance. This design commonality provides improvements in quality and reliability at the factory level and leads to benefits of uniformity and familiarity at the OEM level, supporting standardized machine design.

The H1 motors have the shortest length of any motor available on the market today, and at least one clean sidee, increasing vehicle design flexibility and facilitating installation. The higher speed capability of the motors also results in a high corner power and power density. This provides more power without increasing the size of the motors, which not only saves additional space, but also enables OEMs to design more compact system solutions.

Sauer-Danfoss Inc. is a worldwide leader in the design, manufacture and sale of engineered hydraulic, electric and electronic systems and components, for use primarily in applications of mobile equipment. Sauer-Danfoss, with 9,800 employees worldwide and revenue of approximately $2.0 billion, has sales, manufacturing and engineering capabilities in Europe, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific region.

Hydraulic brake control increases service life, saves space and weight

HAWE Hydraulics, a leading supplier of sophisticated controls to the mobile and industrial markets, announces the type KA power unit, the latest model in the HAWE Hydraulics product line. The compact power unit type KA increases the service life of costly components such as gearboxes, rotor blades, tower and foundations by hydraulically controlling yaw and rotor blades, thus reducing wear and tear on the braking function. These compact power units mount next to an actuator making them an excellent fit for localized installations.

The hydraulic power unit consists of a tank with an integrated submerged motor, a radial piston or gear pump that is directly attached to the motor shaft (without a coupling) and a connection block. The modules are mounted directly onto the connection block. In the event of a disruption to the braking module that may cause interference, the disruption can be identified and the module easily exchanged with no need to remove any hoses connected to the consumers.

All components are made of steel and therefore, capable of withstanding extremely high pressure. The radial piston pumps can supply pressurized oil up to 10,000 psi, while the valves are designed for pressures in excess of 5,800 psi. The pressure level of wind power plants is below 3,600 psi, so the extremely durable pumps and valves are ideal for use in these installations. Because of their compact build, they can be transported without a crane.

For safety reasons, the brakes of a wind power plant must be reliable at all times therefore; HAWE Hydraulics uses leak-free directional seated valves. These valves have a considerably higher switching reliability than the directional spool valves, as dirt particles are flushed out when the valve is open. This type of design prevents silting that can occur and cause spool valves to stick.

The type KA compact power unit has been designed for maximum efficiency with minimal weight and space requirements and can be used either vertically or horizontally. Three tank extensions allow for differing oil volume requirements. Depending on the tank extension the usage volume can be increased from a minimum of two liters to a maximum of ten liters. The power unit can be operated with all voltages, including 690V and is also available in a Cold Climatee version.

HAWE offers active and passive brake control, with or without a flushing function for the brakes and brake lines. Additional modules are available for adjusting the pitch, roof openers for the turbine pod, rotor lock, and control of on-board handling cranes.
