Why do i need a flushing rig ?
It is widely known that contamination is the largest cause of hydraulic system failure so flushing pipework is important prior to operation. We work with customers to understand their needs in terms of flow so that turbulence is achieved, which in trun leads to efficient cleaning. We look to achieve a Reynolds Number of around 4,000 which is a compromise between flow, and oil viscosity for a particular pipe size.
- machine tools
- new plant installations prior to commissioning
- any system following a major overhaul
- systems with performance problems, wear, sticking valves etc.
If you need assistance with your flushing we can provide onsite help, including the supply of a flushing rig and a particle counter.
