Aluminium extrusion presses are very large hydraulic presses, with large volumes of hydraulic oil. They are highly complex production machines, and reliable equipment is the key to maintaining a high output of finished goods. A wide range of hydraulic components, such as pumps and proportional valves are used to make the aluminium press perform to its optimum. The small tolerances in the components in the hydraulic system make it critical to maintain the oil clean and dry, and free from oxidation residues.
Relying solely on in-line filters in aluminium hydraulic presses is a high risk strategy. In doing so, the aluminium press risks being subjected to many particles in varying size that can lead to expensive down time, loss of efficiency in production output and lower quality products. If the oil in the hydraulic system is not clean, then you will experience wear on the hydraulic components and unplanned standstills in production. If you do not keep the oil free from oxidation residues, then you risk much shorter lifetime of the oil and sticking valves during start-up. All lead to increased downtime and higher cost of operation.
Benefits, installing CJC® Oil Filters
- Keeps your hydraulic aluminium press fit for operation
- Maintain high process stability and efficiency
- Reduce risk of unplanned breakdowns and maintenance
- Ensures long lifetime of expensive hydraulic system components
- Extend hydraulic oil lifetime with a factor 3-4
When you install a CJC® Oil Filter solution on your aluminium press, you get a very effective oil filter with the highest dirt capacity suitable for system with high levels of particles or oxidation residues. This way you do not need to stop production untimely to service the filter. Technically, CJC® Oil Filter is known for keeping oil clean, dry and without oxidation residues, which is documented over many years and in numerous hydraulic press installations. When you choose CJC® Oil Filter, you ensure a long lifetime of the hydraulic components, reduce maintenance costs and avoid unplanned breakdowns. Hydraulic oil lifetime can be extended with a factor 3-4, and you can even monitor from the central monitoring location the condition of your system using the Oil Contamination Monitor (OCM).
Many sizes of CJC® Oil Filters are used for the aluminium presses industry:
- Fine Filters from size HDU 15/25 up to large multi-stay HDU 27/108
- Filter Separators from size PTU2 27/27 up to PTU3 27/108
- Oil Contamination Monitor, OCM15
The CJC® System Solutions fit all hydraulic aluminium presses, and we can deliver globally where required. In close co-operation with technical organizations, we help select the best solution depending on system type and conditions in the environment.
