After a lengthy investigation, the maintenance department decided to use a FRIESS-EFC Electrostatic Oil Cleaning System Model D16 to reduce the particle contamination in the hydraulic oil and to remove oxidation products and varnish in the oil.
Since the previous monitoring of oil purity and oil quality involved a great deal of work, such as the taking and shipping of the oil sample, the oil cleaning system was equipped with the new fully automatic particle monitor from FRIESS. The particle monitor monitors the purity of the hydraulic oil used automatically during operation of the electrostatic oil cleaning system. The determined contamination values are shown on the display of the electrostatic oil cleaning system model D16.
To ensure that the desired results were achieved, the equipment was initially rented. During the operation of the oil cleaner, oil samples were repeatedly taken and the oil was carefully analyzed. The results of the analyses indicated a clear reduction of the particle contamination in the oil. At the same time, oxidation products and varnish in the oil were removed. Concurrent to the improved results of the oil analysis, it was found that malfunctions in the hydraulic system of the press were significantly reduced. Machine precision had also improved, so that rejects were also minimized.
Due to this significant improvement in process reliability, the team decided to purchase the electrostatic oil cleaning system.
