Pneumatics

Protect instrumentation such as valves, bearings, pneumatic motors, and air breathers. Solid particles contaminate air systems through ambient air intake, corrosion, and carbon build-up.

Finishing Line Pneumatic Control Valve Protection

The challenge was to reduce downtime due to pneumatic control valves failing every four to six weeks. This is a common occurrence in pneumatic systems due to pressurized air producing wear contamination under 10 microns. Rust and slag are also produced in pressurized air environments which results in the plugging off of seals and pneumatic system components.

Ingressol High-Pressure Air Compressor

Moisture in the air system was causing corrosion of the carbon-steel piping was producing high levels of contamination in the system. The contamination was prematurely damaging the solenoid valve rubber seals. The damage forced the valves to remain open resulting in the need to replace them monthly. The valve failures were inhibiting production. In an effort to reduce unscheduled downtime and the monthly expense of replacing the valves, the maintenance team removed them all together.
