Oil flushing for - hydraulic oil, motor oil and gear oil. The systems are also suitable for flushing complex pipework and new engines.
As the cost of sophisticated, high pressure systems continues to rise, proactive maintenance is imperative to maximise the system service life and minimise operating costs.
The single most important preventive maintenance procedure is regular oil sampling and analysis. Over 96% of all hydraulic failures can be traced directly to oil that has been improperly cared for.
As long as the oil has not lost viscosity and has not been damaged by overheating, it can normally be reused by flushing the system.
When the oil is just drained from the reservoir and the system replenished, several gallons of old oil and residues are left in the lines and components.
As new clean oil is introduced, it mixes with the old oil, absorbing the contaminants, circulating them through the system again to cause further damage.
Flushing the system is the only way to remove these potentially damaging residues as part of the maintenance regime.
At Rolls-Royce, we recommend the following process to reduce expensive downtime:
All flushing system units are based on ISO containers and are designed to operate virtually anywhere.
