THE ADVANTAGES OF RMF SYSTEMS
The tolerances between moving parts in servo valves and proportional valves are constantly reducing. The result is that even the smallest amounts of silt can cause damage to the system. RMF filters remove this silt.
PROTECTION OF EXPENSIVE MAIN STREAM FILTERS
RMF Systems filters are applied in By-pass or Off-line configurations and constantly clean the oil from the reservoir. The oil which reaches the main stream filter is therefore cleaner and allows longer usage life of this expensive filter. The main stream filter then acts primarily as an emergency filter.
LESS FREQUENT OIL CHANGES
Increasingly strict environmental laws in the area of oil changes, oil storage and the disposal of used oil lead to corresponding cost increases. RMF filters mean less oil changes, and therefore less costs.
EXTENDED USABLE LIFE OF THE OIL
Frequent oil changes are generally the result of chemical deterioration of the oil caused by the oil oxidation process. This process is brought into action by the presence of silt. If water is also present, this acts as a catalyst and the oxidation process is accelerated. RMF filters remove silt AND water from the oil.
