Hydraulic fluid contamination is a constant danger for hydraulic systems, and contamination frequently occurs during the reservoir sampling and filling processes.
The Schroeder Reservoir Filtration System Adapter (RFSA) is a solution for continuous protection of fluid during sampling and filling processes.
To minimize airborne contamination, the RFSA provides an air tight seal when extracting fluids through the breather space on a tank or direct from a filter system. It also consistently upholds filter medium and breather protection, which are important steps to keeping solid particles out of fluid.
Protection During Offline Filtration
The RFSA is engineered for compatibility with a wide range of Schroeder Filter Systems products, enabling a secure connection during offline filtration processes. Suitable companion filter systems include: KLS/KLD/MFS/MFD, HFS-BC, MFD-BC, MFD-MV, MFS/MFD-HV, TDS-A, AMFS, FS, MTS
The RFSA* is made with an aluminum body and gives a kidney loop filter direct access to a reservoir through a breather port.
*See also Schroeder’s Reservoir Breather Fluid Sampling Adapter (RBSA).
Both adapters allow the tank to remain sealed during kidney loop filtration and fluid sampling to reduce contaminate ingression.
Markets and Opportunities
Any market that has a need for fluid to pass through the filter is a perfect environment for the Schroeder RFSA. Heavy equipment operating in dirty or dusty environments pose the increasingly big challenge of keeping contaminants out of tanks. These are the folks that can largely benefit from an RFSA. Markets including:
- Paper Mills
- Steel Mills
