Why Did You Pay so Much for that Pump Repair?
Many of today's sophisticated construction and oilfield hydraulic systems utilize servo controlled Piston style hydraulic pumps.  These servo's are mounted on the pump and use an electric signal to port servo or pilot pressure to stroke the pump to a desired position in order to obtain optimum flow and pressure.  These valves are extremely dirt sensitive and when contaminated will cause a perfectly normal pump to perform as if it is no longer capable of producing optimum flow or pressure.  As the problem may appear to be a general pump failure and not a specific servo problem the complete pump will often be sent in for repair. When the repair facility evaluates the pump they are bound to rebuild it to function at factory new specs up to their stated warranty period which may be 12 months depending on the shop. Therefore the repair shop will replace or rebuild any components which may possibly fail during the warranty period; not just the offending servo. So a pump which failed due to a contaminated servo valve which may cost between $500.00 and $1,200.00 to replace new could cost upwards of $5,000.00 to rebuild. Obviously this is just the tip of the iceberg as downtime can be a much greater expense than the repair. Rubber and metal particles from a seemingly innocuous "NEW" hose assembly can foul a servo immediately and put a piece of equipment on the maintenance board for a week to 10 days unnecessarily.  New hose assemblies are contaminated and must be cleaned properly in order to protect expensive downstream components. ~Contributed by Mark Raumaker, Outside Sales Manager (South-Central USA), Ultra Clean Technologies Corp.     [caption id="attachment_235" align="alignleft" width="150"] Photo Credit: apexhydraulics.com.uk[/caption]

Why You Should Clean “New” Hydraulic Hoses
A Common Kitchen Tip Applies to Hydraulics When I was still very young my mother used to take me shopping with her. Whenever she bought dishes, she would bring them home and wash them before putting them away. That seemed kind of silly to me at the time because, after all, they were brand new! But when I asked her why she did that she said, “You never know where those dishes have been!” As usual, she was right. From manufacturing to shipping to display on the store shelves, those dishes had plenty of opportunities to collect dust and germs. The same principle, funnily enough, applies to the Fluid Power Industry. Read More
Not Getting the Clean Results You Want?
“How hose manufacturers could be thwarting your efforts” A few months ago we received a complaint from a customer that the ¾” & 1” suction/return lines that they were assembling were not getting as clean as their other hoses. “We have been using your product and it usually works great!” they told us, “But these are the only sizes that don’t pass our gravimetric cleanliness tests.” After trouble shooting a little bit over the phone we then asked him if he knew where the hoses were manufactured. He named the site and we instantly realized what the issue was. Read More
