Clean Oil is the Key to Productivity

Is your hydraulic equipment experiencing more downtime than usual? Are you noticing that your equipment is operating less efficiently?

If your operation is paying a price for the inconsistent performance of your vital equipment, high contamination is most likely to blame.

Hydraulic fluid contamination from a variety of sources is by far the most common cause of system inefficiency and failures. In fact, approximately 80% of all hydraulic equipment failures can be directly attributed to the effects of fluid contamination!

Consistently clean hydraulic oil is vital to every operation that relies on hydraulic equipment. Additionally, systems that rely on process water or run on diesel fuel are also vulnerable to the effects of contamination. Proactive measures to analyze fluid and prevent contamination provide significant benefits to cost and productivity:

  • Prevent costly equipment failures and downtime before they happen by detecting and treating contaminated fluid.
  • Save money on repairs by protecting system components from contamination and extending their lifespan.
  • Get the most out of your hydraulic oil by detecting and treating contamination before the oil’s life is exhausted. As oil prices continue to rise and hydraulic oil supply lines remain unstable, it’s important to conserve the oil you have!
  • Increase fuel efficiency not just by filtering your fuel source, but by improving overall system efficiency when you reduce contamination-related wear. Clean fuel and efficient operation reduces fuel consumption, cuts carbon emissions, and saves your operation money.

Struggling with Fluid Contamination? Fluid and Oil Analysis Services by Schroeder Industries Can Help!

Backed by over 75 years of innovation, Schroeder Industries is a leader in developing filtration products and technology that detect, analyze and remediate contamination to protect hydraulic systems and other vital equipment.

When contamination is attacking your equipment, the first step towards an effective filtration plan is a thorough analysis of the affected fluid, be it oil, fuel, or water.

Our fluid health experts will test your samples and create a detailed report, identifying the type and potential sources of contamination in your system and giving recommendations on how to best protect your equipment.

Schroeder offers a variety of premium testing kits, including:

Offering a comprehensive look at your hydraulic fluid or water glycol condition, our bottle sampling Bottled Fluid Analysis Test Kits provide vital insights into your fluid health.

Use Filter Debris Analysis (FDA) Test Kits alongside traditional oil analysis methods to analyze wear particles and discover the root cause of premature equipment wear & failures.

Diesel analysis can identify potential causes for fuel filter plugging, smoking, loss of power, poor injector performance, malfunctioning throttle position sensors and sticking valves. Testing also confirms a diesel fuel’s sulfur content, biodiesel content and compliance with manufacturer specifications and standards for cleanliness that could affect equipment warranty requirements.

The WaterTest Kit (WTK) is used for quantitative analysis of the absolute water content in mineral-oil-based lubricating and hydraulic fluids. Use to perform quick, on-site analysis of water contamination and supplement on-site laboratories.

Monitor Contamination with Schroeder’s State-of-the-Art Fluid Care Portal

Regular testing is vital for monitoring trends in your fluid health and preventing problems before they arise. However, tracking results over time for many pieces of equipment takes time and hassle.

As part of our testing and analysis services, Schroeder Industries is now offering a smart digital solution for detecting trends in the quality of your hydraulic oil, diesel fuel, process water, and more.

The Fluid Care Portal is a new, powerful digital tool for easily tracking the health of your equipment’s fluid as you test over time:

  • All your data is in one place, versus scattered over spreadsheets or various paper reports.
  • Easily monitor trends in fluid testing data over time, allowing you to detect and resolve contamination issues before they begin impacting your bottom line.
  • Monitor as many equipment assets as you need. Whatever the size of your operation, the Fluid Care Portal allows you to individually monitor the testing results for each piece of equipment.
  • Receive alerts when ISO Code, Water Content, or other parameters are exceeded. In the Fluid Care Portal, users can set target limit profiles for various parameters, creating customized criteria for your most critical components
