  1. Changing Seasons, Changing Diesel Fuel Blends

    Leave a Comment
    From: Schroeder Industries’ Fuel Filtration Center of Excellence

    For those of us in the Northern hemisphere, Fall has arrived!

    For our friends in the Southern hemisphere, October brings the welcoming warmth of Spring and return of the rainy season.

    As we transition through the change of seasons, the diesel fuel blends in many regions will soon change as well to accommodate the lower or higher temperatures.

    This is a great time to do preventative maintenance, clean, polish, and upgrade fuel systems where needed.

    Additionally, many of our customers are reviewing their year-end budgets and may find that they have funds remaining that could be allocated to make those system upgrades and improvements.

    With that in mind, it’s critical that fuel-coalescing and particulate removing solutions be integrated into ALL fuel polishing, transfer and clean-out systems.

    The GHCF, GHPF, BDS particulate and coalescing filtration, along with the bag filters we offer utilize the same replacement elements across the Fuel Filtration Product Lines. This makes reordering filter elements simpler while providing  better and higher performing systems than our competitors do.

    Filter Cart Systems / Mobile Filtration Units

    The BDFC Bulk Diesel Filtration Cart provides exceptional single pass or kidney loop filtration with both high efficiency particulate and coalescing filtration integrated into one compact filter cart.

    BDFC Gen 3.

    The BDFC is ideal for fuel maintenance operations.

    It is portable and very easy to use and operate.

    Offers flow rate options of  14 gpm (53 l/min) or 25 gpm (95 l/min).

    The BDC Bulk Diesel Cart offers higher flow rate options with considerably more dirt holding capacity and throughput for larger operational needs for fuel polishing.

    BDC Bulk Diesel Cart

    These systems are available in standard flow rated options of 25 gpm (95 l/min) or up to 70 gpm (265 l/min)

    The BDC incorporates the BDS particulate and coalescing solution along with a bag pre-filter.

    These systems are ideal for environments experiencing microbial growth or blooms or for higher capacity systems where larger throughput and capacity is required.  The three integrated filters combine the economy of a bag element with Schroeder’s high performance synthetic media and our patented water removal technology.

    It’s important to note that these systems are all designed to operate on North American electrical standards.

    We understand these are not the same globally; therefore, we have designed these systems with slotted mounting holes designed to accommodate NEMA-style motors, which allow for easy adaption of these systems in other parts of the world.

    They can be shipped with or without pump and motor groups to enable local sourcing and installation to match regional electrical requirements. We also have the ability to ship these units complete with your local requirements, but this would require a minimum purchase of 10 pcs to accommodate that request.

    For more information about diesel fuel cleanliness specs as well as past successes we have had with applications utilizing these products, please contact us.

  2. #MFGDay 2020

    MFGDay 2020

    Manufacturing Day is not unlike any other Friday for Schroeder Industries…

    The fresh steel rods arrive at our dock, the machine shop hustles to innovate new and familiar parts, and the filtration products you’ve come to love are being built and shipped right out of Pittsburgh, PA.

    What is different is the year 2020…

    It’s been a year with challenges.

    One with alternating schedules and one with furloughs and lay-offs.

    The manufacturing world has not been immune to these trying times.

    But we have made the best of them.

    We are grateful to say that the manufacturing industry has been recognized as “essential”.

    This ordinance enabled us to continue manufacturing many of the critical products necessary for industry.

    It has also helped us keep the team we’ve built and are so proud of together and ready to provide these products, as well as support to one another, as quickly as possible – especially in emergencies.

    We are essential in keeping the world moving.

    Faces of Hydraulic Filtration

    In 2019, Schroeder Industries represented the
    “Face of Hydraulic Filtration” in the Fluid Power Journal Publication.

    October 2, 2020 marks the 8th consecutive month of working without incidents.

    This means that, in addition to following strict CDC guidelines, we continue to adhere to the stringent OSHA guidelines like we always have.

    We are incredibly proud of our staff for taking the extra precautions and truly keeping our operation and each other safe and thriving.

    “This could only have been achieved with a TEAM that cares about each other, a TEAM that cares about providing for their families and a TEAM that does what it takes to get the job done!  Sacrifice and Commitment from every employee at Schroeder Industries.  I am Proud of everyone here.  The past few months have been trying but we are weathering the storm and coming out stronger than before!” – John Ciora Jr., Plant Manager, Pittsburgh, PA.

    Our plan is to continue these safety measures well into the next year.

    We hope to carry these safety practices until Manufacturing Day 2021 – and on.

    So today, please show appreciation to the products that make your job easier and remember that somewhere, someone just like you is building these products to shape the future.

    Plug-and-Play IoT Solutions – Local Fluid Conditioning

    For the first time, fluid conditioning experts release the easiest way to automate fluid condition monitoring and sampling.

    Leetsdale, PA. (September 30, 2020) – Schroeder Industries, a recognized leader in fluid engineering and condition monitoring introduces the all-new plug-and-play Condition Monitoring Starter Kits for real-time fluid condition.

    Condition Monitoring Starter Kits

    In a perfect world, end-users would experience zero (0) hydraulic component failure and run their multi-million-dollar operations seamlessly. We all know that’s rarely ever the case, especially with contaminated fluid.

    Contaminated hydraulic fluid is the leading cause for system downtime.

    Fortunately, Schroeder Industries offers a full-line of top-tier sensors to catch less-than-ideal hydraulic fluid before it enters the system. Schroeder also understands that fluid sensors are a relatively new technology to some and anything IoT-related can be overwhelming. It’s because of this that Schroeder has developed the plug-and-play Condition Monitoring Starter Kits (#1-4).

    What's Included

    With the Condition Monitoring Starter Kits (#1-4), Schroeder now passes their 74+ years of condition monitoring expertise for a truly seamless integration experience. These plug-and-play packages provide the technology, necessary cables, hoses, and wires all in a single purchase order. Everything operations managers need to start monitoring (and saving) their hydraulic equipment like a pro. The Condition Monitoring Starter Kits come in four (4) unique sets: Local Data Display (#1), IoT (#2), HY-TRAX® IoT (#3), and CSM-Economy (#4). All four (4) kits are now available on the Schroeder website.

  4. September Health and Wellness – World Suicide Day

    Leave a Comment

    World Suicide Prevention Day –
    September 10, 2020

    World Suicide Prevention Day is observed on September 10th each year. Every 40 seconds, someone takes their own life which is equivalent to about 800,000 worldwide every year. Suicide is the leading cause of death for people ages 15 to 29 and for every suicide that results in death, there are as many as 40 attempted suicides.

    One of the main goals of World Suicide Prevention Day is to increase awareness about suicidal behaviors and how to effectively prevent them. It is a reminder that society needs consistent and increasing advocacy for mental health resources so that people struggling with mental health disorders can find the help they need.

    By starting conversation and directing help to those who need it, we can help prevent suicides and save lives. Providing support services, talking about suicide, reducing means of self-harm, and following up with loved ones are just some of the actions we can take to help others.
