Schroeder Industries introduces the Schroeder Varnish Elimination Unit (VEU).
With the scheduled (and often times unscheduled) dollar value of replacement hydraulic parts and the pressure to maintain a 100% planned up-time schedule, most operators are shocked to learn that the level of operational quality lies solely in the cleanliness of their operational fluid. Pristine fluid attributes to fewer oil change intervals, extended hydraulic component life, and many other money and time-saving solutions. This is especially critical in machines that cost millions of dollars to operate each and every day and where equipment downtime can quickly out cost a return on investment from fluid conditioning, which in many facilities, is often less than 6 months.
The service-friendly Varnish Elimination Unit (VEU) is used to prepare mineral oils and is particularly effective at removing oil-insoluble aging products (varnish) from said oils. Varnish deposits like to settle in hydraulic reservoirs, valves, or in the bearings of turbine lubrication systems, plastic injection molding machines, industrial forges and presses, and many other critical components, effecting the operating reliability and damaging critical hydraulic components on these multi-million-dollar systems.
If you are noticing filterable gels or solid paint-type deposits in your reservoir, valves, or bearings, chances are you have varnish. The Varnish Elimination Unit (VEU) is now available with a water-cooled heat exchanger option for higher fluid temperature applications.
