1. GENERAL INFORMATION

 

The 90 GPM Filter Skid is designed to filter a wide variety of hydraulic and lubrication oils to meet or exceed new oil cleanliness specifications. The system is designed to remove particulate and/or water contamination. For particulate removal, the system is typically equipped with a high efficiency filter element made from micro-glass media and rated Beta(c) > 1000 per ISO 16889, meaning that 99.9% of all particles of a given micron size are removed in a multi-pass system. For water removal, the system can be equipped with a water removal filter element capable of removing up to 1 gallons of free water per filter.

 

The fluid is drawn from an existing reservoir to the filtration system by means of a self-priming positive displacement gear pump. The oil passes through the filter element before being discharged to the outlet, at which point it is pumped back to the existing reservoir. The system has a differential pressure gauge to show when the elements need to be changed (40 PSID). Heavy-duty petroleum transfer hoses are used at both the inlet and outlet.

6. SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS

 

This system has been examined and tested for safety. If there is any possibility that the oil being purified is contaminated with a solvent or materials which could be considered hazardous, either with toxicant or flammable explosives, the purifier should not be used unless precautions are taken to vent the vapors in a safe manner according to local, state, and federal codes and the flash point is above 200F (93C). This caution is necessary to prevent the possibility of fire, explosion, or toxic injury to persons and property.

 

NOTE: Normal safety practices and common sense should always be exercised when operating this unit.

This unit was manufactured to use 480VAC/3PH/60Hz input electrical power. The main power disconnect on the electrical panel door must be in the OFF position to gain access to the electrical panel. Supply power to the unit should be disconnected before the electrical panel door is opened. Only authorized and trained personnel should open the electrical cabinet to attempt service.

 

7. FLUID COMPABILITY

 

Depending on the model number the following seals apply:

 

The process fluid must be compatible with Viton seal material. Viton is good in the temperature range of -15 F to +400F. It is generally recommended for lubricating, fuel and hydraulic oils. The unit may be ordered with other seals to provide compatibility with specialty fluids.

 

The process fluid must be compatible with Buna seal material. Buna N is generally recommended for petroleum, water, diester and water glycol. This unit may be ordered with other seals to provide compatibility with specialty fluids. Buna N is good in the temperature range of -65°F to +250°F.

 

8. INSTALLATION AND START UP PROCEDURES

 

Unpacking

 

This system is delivered with maximum protection during transportation and handling.

 

NOTE: All damage attributed to the handling and delivery of the unit must be recorded and brought to the attention of the shipper immediately.

 

This unit has been thoroughly tested for a minimum of two (2) hours run time. Fluid used to test the unit is matched as closely as possible to that listed on the application sheet completed by the customer and supplied with the order. The unit has been thoroughly inspected for defects prior to the delivery. All connections, however, should be checked prior to operating this unit, vibration and/or rough handling during delivery could adversely affect component alignment and/or connection tightness.

 

Mechanical Installation

 

With the system in place, connect the inlet and outlet hoses from the reservoir to the system. The inlet port has been sized to provide enough flow to operate the unit in the automatic mode using oil with a maximum viscosity of 1500 SSU (323 cSt). A hose diameter equal to inlet/outlet port size (see specification sheet) is required to provide adequate oil supply to this unit.

 

NOTE: Use of a smaller diameter line will restrict the flow and will adversely effect the automatic operation of the unit.

 

The inlet/outlet connections have been sized for maximum hose lengths of 20 feet. Use of longer hose lengths must be approved prior to installation. Use of a “quick disconnect” on the inlet line is not recommended. This can restrict flow to the unit in specific applications. Oil is drawn into the unit by vacuum created by the system and is capable of pulling oil with up to 8-ft. (2.4 m) of negative head. For applications that exceed this, please consult the factory.

 

Operating Instructions

 

Connect the inlet and outlet hoses to the oil supply reservoir and system.

 

Connect the power supply cord to the power source.

 

CAUTION: Power Supply Disconnect should be located within a line of sight to the power supply source.

 

Open the inlet and outlet valves on the system and the oil supply reservoir.

 

Turn the Main Power Disconnect to the On position. Check the rotation of the motor.

 

Turn the system on by pushing the Start button.

 

Once the system is up and running, slowly open the filter housing air vent valves and bleed off the air in the system. Be sure that a container is placed under the air vent valve while bleeding the air, as oil will come out after the air is purged. Once fluid starts to flow without sputters close the air purge valve.

 

The Inlet Gauge on the system should indicate between 0 and -10” Hg, depending on the fluid viscosity and the inlet condition. If it reads below -10”Hg, then there is a restriction on the inlet and the Inlet Strainer may need to be cleaned.

 

The System Pressure Gauge should read between 0 and 80 PSI, depending on the fluid viscosity, flow rate, and the amount of restriction on the outlet.

 

Allow system to operate until the fluid is clean.

 

The Differential Pressure Gauge indicates the filter life. The filter should be changed when the gauge reads 40 PSID.

 

To stop the system, simply push the Off button and close the Inlet and Outlet ball valves. Then turn the Main Power Disconnect to the Off position.

 

Filter Replacement Procedures

 

Before replacing the filter elements, first drain the housing by opening the drain (with a container below) and then open the vent valve. This will allow the atmospheric pressure to push down on the fluid inside the vessel. After draining the housing, loosen lid bolts in a counter-clockwise direction.

 

For micro-glass filter elements:

 

Loosen t-nuts to remove the used filter elements.

Install new filters so that they seat properly at the bottom of the housing.

Tighten the t-nut to secure the new filter.

Make sure o-ring gasket is seated properly on the lid.

Seal the filter housing by tightening all the bolts for a proper seal.
