    As you may know, over 85% of all hydraulic system failures are caused by contaminants in the fluid, either by the direct mechanical action between the contaminants and the system components, or by the contamination acting as a catalyst to accelerate oxidation of the fluid, prompting chemical breakdown.

    Even if no failure occurs, operating efficiency can be markedly reduced and the size of the contamination can vary from the size of a human hair, down to those undetectable by the human eye.

  • Injection Moulding & Filtration

    Blog tags:


    Injection moulding is the process of injecting molten plastic at high pressure into a mould to form a given shape. Hydraulic pressure is at the heart of most injection moulding machines, regardless of the make. The hydraulic system provides the force behind pushing the product into the mould and then splitting the mould open again.
