Filtration & Monitoring Solutions for hydraulic oil and lubricants

Maxi Water Vac

The RMF vacuum dehydration units are designated oil purification units which can be applied directly to various types of machine reservoirs. The units dehydrate and clean most types of oil such as lubricating, hydraulic, transformer and switch oils by removing particles, gasses, and water. The purified oil satisfies the most stringent quality requirements, such as stated in the ISO 4406.

The Vacuum Dehydration Units neither remove nor alter oil additives. The water removal process is based on pure vacuum evaporation inside a vacuum chamber at a maximum temperature of 60 °C. Solid particle removal is achieved through a well proven RMF Systems micro filter. The dehydration units do not require continuous attention whilst operating. Once the dehydraction units are connected properly and commissioned, oil purification is a semi-automatic process.

The desired oil temperature can be selected on a thermostat which is included in the integrated heater element of the dehydration units. Oil supply and removal from the vacuum chamber is a full automatic process which is controlled by a PLC.

Overflow of the waste container or tank is protected through a float switch which will shut down the dehydration unit once the maximum level is reached. The only manual action is the emptying of the waste water container.

The MXWV unit comes with:

  • Controlbox with a PLC unit for an easy to use plug-and-play system.
  • Choice of 1 or 3 µ glassfiber elements.
  • 5 meter cable, 16 amp, 5 pole plug.
  • No Hoses

MXWV benefits:

  • Efficient water, gas and particulate removal.
  • Extension of fluid service life.
  • Reduces fluid disposal.
  • Minimizes corrosion in systems
  • Reduces fluid conductivity.
  • Reduces operating cost.
