Hydraulic Oil Filtration and Maintenance

Oil filtration is nothing new and the benefits of running a hydraulic system with clean oil are universally accepted. But over the years expensive ineffective filtration systems have resulted in a frequent oil change culture.

Hydraulic systems and components have changed recently with emphasis on efficiency and control. Modern control interfaces require clean oil or their running costs can soon outweigh their benefits.

At Apex we understand that any oil maintenance programme must be cost effective and easy to manage or any benefits will be quickly overshadowed by real life manufacturing issues.

What is Apex’s oil maintenance programme?

Consultation – Assess and identify the right system for you
Water Filtration – Remove 100% water contamination. Water contamination can reduce the life of machinery by more than 50%
Particle Filtration – Remove contamination down to 1 micron (3 absolute)
Oil Analysis Reports – Enable us to assess the effectiveness of your filtration, cooling systems and identify failing components.
Improvement Plan – Practical suggestions to help you reduce contamination before it happens.

Why do I need to change my hydraulic oil?

Typically hydraulic oil will be changed when it is contaminated with particles and water in a system with insufficient filters or when it has been run at high temperatures for long periods.

How often should I change my hydraulic oil?

Guidelines on how often you should change your hydraulic oil are often stipulated by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). The OEM has usually designed their machinery with insufficient filtration and therefore recommends regular oil changes. In reality every user and user environment are different therefore the systems oil will become contaminated at different rates. So the OEM’s must accommodate the worst environments and practices.

Can I extend the life of my hydraulic oil?

Yes massively! At Apex we believe hydraulic oil is not a consumable item and if correctly maintained it will outlast most other components of a hydraulic system.

If I change my hydraulic oil regularly will I be trouble free?

Replacing contaminated oil will never be detrimental to the system but to think it’s a cure to the problem is wrong. Even with flushing an oil change will be inferior to correct oil maintenance because barrel oil is not supplied clean (Many valve manufacturers stipulate using cleaner oil than can be bought off-the-shelf), the original contamination cause is still present and the new oil can be recontaminated within a matter of days.

Is an oil maintenance system expensive?

A good oil maintenance system won’t cost anything. It will pay for itself on the saving of oil replacement not to mention prolonging pump, cylinder and valve life. It will even save you on replacing your systems current OEM fitted filters elements, which are usually far more expensive than the Apex system.

Is it another hassle for me to manage?

No we do everything for you. We’ll agree a programme and monitor its success for you. Usually early on in the programme we are able to recommend less frequent reporting and element changes. We’ll even carry out the element changes for you.
