In addition to an in-line hydraulic filtration strategy, an offline filter system can greatly enhance the cleanliness of hydraulic fluid. A Filter Cart System is a stand-alone unit that operates independent of the main hydraulic system, allowing it to function even when the machine is turned off.

Often referred to as an offline filtration or kidney loop systems, Filter Cart Systems have many application points within a plant or factory:

  • Filtering incoming hydraulic fluids prior to adding to bulk storage
  • Filtering new fluid before it is put into service
  • Fluid transfer and filtering before adding to a hydraulic reservoir
  • Supplementing current hydraulic filtration already in the system
  • Roll-off cleanliness – cleaning a reservoir on a piece of equipment prior to shipment to ensure peak fluid condition
  • Cleaning up a hydraulic system following component replacement

Whether your machine is new or many years old, the cleaner the hydraulic fluid, the better the operating condition. In hydraulic systems, 70 to 90% of wear and failure is contamination related. Issues such as defects, misuse or age can be traced to only 10 to 30% percent of failures.

While clean fluid is critical to proper system operation, unfortunately, contamination cannot be stopped. However, with Schroeder Industries technology, it can be managed!

Schroeder Industries Filter Cart Systems

Schroeder Industries offers up to 10 different types of Filter Cart Systems. All of these carts offer the convenience of mobile use. The mobility allows for easy portability and requires less storage space.

Our filter carts are equipped with high efficiency filter elements to remove solid particulates and/or free water quickly and efficiently. The onboard filtration systems are available in either single (one filter) or staged filtration (two filter) configurations.

Our systems range from simple filtration carts (hose to reservoir, powered on, processed through a filter) to our SMART® carts (diagnostic and SMART® controlled components in addition to the standard filter cart process mentioned above). These include contamination monitoring units such as our CS1220, AS1008 and sensor interfaces for data logging and data transfer.

Various flow rates are available depending on model code selected. Kidney loop systems can also be designed for a particular application.

Problem: Refuse company faced with short oil life and dirty hydraulic fluid in their trucks.

Solution: Through filter and monitoring 3500 gallons (13,250 L) of hydraulic oil at $6.19 per gallon ($1.64 per Liter), refuse company was able to save $21,665 in 6 months (through extending fluid life). The decision to implement the AMFS filter system company-wide was made.

Problem: Customer needed a way to ensure roll-off cleanliness specifications were met after factory assembly and test run of lawn tractors.

Solution: MFD Filter Cart cleans the oil used in the lawn tractors in a roll-off cleanliness program. At the factory, the customer is using the filter cart to clean the fluid prior to shipping the unit. The dual filtration design allows staged filtration and/or water removal if required.

Problem: Customer was seeking a solution to quicken the traditional bottle sampling procedures for oil warranty claims. They requested an on-site particle counter to confirm the required ISO code was met before sending the oil for the warranty to be honored.

Solution: The customer ordered a HY-TRAX Retrofit option to easily add contamination monitoring to their existing MFD filtration cart. As a result, the customer could measure and record their fluid cleanliness level. They could confidently send their oil sample, knowing their corporation would honor the warranty based on the approved bottle sample. HY-TRAX Communication Module is available on the MFS/MFD and KLS/KLD for oils up to 2500 SUS using the G2185 option.
