Servo Valve Failure: A Video Case Study

Posted by Dustin Flynn on Wed, Jul. 10, 2019

Servo valves are a tiny but essential component of manufacturing processes. However, as you will see in the video case study below, servo valves can fall victim to failure due to excessive fluid contamination. Watch the video below to see how a tire plant in the south diagnosed and dealt with a servo valve problem that would have resulted in thousands of dollars of damage.

Getting to Know Multi-Pass Testing: Comparing Tests

Posted by Dustin Flynn on Wed, Apr. 24, 2019

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 video below, we'll cover four different methods of testing: ISO 16889, which is the industry standard test; ISO/CD 23369 Cyclic Flow Test, which is proposed to replace the current industry standard test; The Cyclic Stabilization Test; and Hy-Pro’s Dynamic Filter Efficiency Test.

The Benefits of Offline Filtration

Posted by Dustin Flynn on Wed, Apr. 25, 2018

 

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.

Dirty Oil Leads to Downtime at Coal-Fired Power Plant [Infographic]

Posted by Dustin Flynn on Wed, Jan. 24, 2018

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.
