Lifting platform, hydraulic lifting platform, hydraulic lift hydraulic system maintenance
Lifting platform, hydraulic lifting platform, hydraulic lift has been popularized to all corners of social life, the use of more and more extensive, whether it is construction, civil engineering, and people’s daily life are inseparable from the lifting machinery. Hydraulic system is an important part of the lift machinery, maintain the hydraulic system helps the safe use of lift machinery, extend the life of the lift, so we need to master the correct maintenance method.
Hydraulic system maintenance three major points.
When the oil enters the hydraulic system operation, cleanliness is the primary issue. Dirt and other impurities should be prevented from entering the system. As you already know, tiny particles can bruise valves, jam pumps and block orifices, resulting in costly repairs.
How do you keep your hydraulic system clean? There are three main points.
1) Keep hydraulic oil clean
Store the oil in a clean location and be careful when changing or refueling the oil. Only use a clean funnel equipped with a fine-grid strainer to pour oil from the container into the tank. Of course, the oil you use must should be of the type recommended by the equipment manufacturer.
2) Keep the system clean
Change the oil and filter regularly. A good hydraulic oil contains a variety of additives that prevent the oil from deteriorating or clogging system parts. However, these additives can lose their effectiveness after a period of time. Therefore the oil should be changed regularly to ensure that the additives are working. Filters can only absorb a limited amount of dirt particles and other contaminants from the oil. Change the filter at the recommended intervals to keep the system clean.
Draining and Refueling
Regularly draining the oil tank of water and sediment is important to remove contaminants from the oil, but it is also important to regularly drain the entire hydraulic system. This is the only reliable way to completely remove system contaminants, oxidized hydraulic fluid and other harmful substances. Then, the recommended clean hydraulic oil should be reintroduced into the system.
If the oil has been completely contaminated, especially when the pump is damaged, the oil in the tank must be cleaned. Make the oil flow through the oil cleaning device until the oil contamination indicator shows that the oil is in a satisfactory condition.
3)Keep the working area clean
A) When filling or re-filling the oil tank, ensure that the area around the filter tank cover is clean. Use only clean oil and funnels or containers. Do not bring dirt into the system-clean oil only.
B) When maintaining the hydraulic system, use only clean plastic bungs for sealing the ends of the lines.
C) The workbench must be absolutely clean when servicing hydraulic components. Check the condition of the tools used. They should also be cleaned frequently.
