In the world of filtration, we differentiate filters and measure their performance using various testing methods, otherwise known as multi-pass testing. In order to understand the testing process, we've created two videos that cover how filters are tested. In the first video below, we'll go over the terms and definitions you need to know to understand how multi-pass testing works and what's measured by it.
Watch this 5-minute video to learn about Demulsibility and how essential its characteristics are to turbine oil.
At Hy-Pro, our mission is to make our customers as efficient as possible, and we achieve that with the highest quality filtration products and plans. Our Total System Cleanliness strategies maximize uptime, productivity and prevent costly fluid contamination-related failures. We often achieve that by simply upgrading our customers to Hy-Pro DFE rated filters and Hy-Dry Breathers. But, oftentimes, too many systems have insufficient filtration, or worse off, no filtration at all; this creates the need for a whole range of offline particulate filtration solutions.

It’s time for the 2018 Reliable Plant Conference & Exhibition and this year it’s being held in our favorite city -- Indianapolis! We know this city pretty well, so we wanted to offer you some recommendations for restaurants and places to visit in our fair city. Keep reading to learn about our favorite spots in Indy.
Maintenance professionals who have implemented Oil Analysis Programs (OAP) into their Preventative Maintenance Program understand, at some point, it's going to happen, we don't know when, or where, but one day our new oil is going to start to turn...dark.
Controlling the contaminant flow of your hydraulic, lubricant or fuel reservoirs is one of the simplest goals in achieving Total Systems Cleanliness.
In the fascinating and fundamental field that is industrial fluid filtration, there exist many types of filter elements and many different types of media. In this article, we will briefly cover filter elements and the most common types of media they're made up of. The medias featured below include: cellulose, glass, wire mesh and water removal, coalesce and resin.
The Problem: Oil with MPC Values of 250
A coal-fired power plant in the Philippines has a scheduled shutdown. Upon shutdown, it is revealed that the turbine lube oil, Shell Turbo 32, in the system has suddenly darkened. After conducting MPC and ISO code testing, it is determined that the oil’s current state is unusable with MPC values as high as 250 and ISO codes at 20/17/10.
Accessing a System that is Currently in Place
Preventative maintenance is a program put in place in most manufacturing or production industries to ensure quality scheduled maintenance is provided. Maintenance professionals implement these routine inspections before, during and after the operation of machinery. Parts of this routine can include areas that can only be inspected by touch, not sight, to determine what is happening under the surface.
Oil analysis can be added to this routine maintenance to give a fuller picture of whats happening inside machinery and equipment. By including oil analysis in a preventative maintenance program, maintenance professionals are provided with detailed inside information that could prevent issues in the future, like unexpected downtime.
