Oil filtration helps the running a hydraulic system with clean oil thus reducing the downtime , hydraulic component , like cylinders , valves , pumps failure is lowered which is globally accepted. But over the years expensive ineffective filtration systems have resulted in a frequent oil change culture.
Hydraulic systems and components have changed recently with emphasis on efficiency and control. Modern control interfaces require clean oil or their running costs can soon outweigh their benefits.
At LHS we understand that any oil filtration process to be cost effective and easy to manage and it has to pay the benefits with its own way
Consultation – Assess and identify the right system for you
Water Filtration – Remove 100% water contamination. Water contamination can reduce the life of machinery by more than 50%
Particle Filtration – Remove contamination down to 1 micron (3 absolute)
Oil Analysis Reports – Enable us to assess the effectiveness of your filtration, cooling systems and. Along with filtration , Analysis and report - Identify failing components like leakages in cylinders , leaking metal pipline joints /hose internal of power pack and external upto cylinders ; valves cleaning , cleaning or replacement of filters if required
Improvement Plan – Practical suggestions to help you reduce contamination before it happens.
Typically hydraulic oil will be changed when it is contaminated with particles and water in a system with insufficient filters or when it has been run at high temperatures for long periods.
Guidelines on how often you should change your hydraulic oil are often stipulated by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). The OEM has usually designed their machinery with insufficient filtration and therefore recommends regular oil changes. In reality every user and user environment are different therefore the systems oil will become contaminated at different rates. So the OEM’s must accommodate the worst environments and practices.
Yes massively! At LHS we believe hydraulic oil is not a consumable item and if correctly maintained it will outlast most other components of a hydraulic system.
Replacing contaminated oil will never be detrimental to the system but to think it’s a cure to the problem is wrong. Even with flushing an oil change will be inferior to correct oil maintenance because barrel oil is not supplied clean (Many valve manufacturers stipulate using cleaner oil than can be bought off-the-shelf), the original contamination cause is still present and the new oil can be re-contaminated within a matter of days.

A good oil maintenance system won’t cost anything. It will pay for itself on the saving of oil replacement not to mention prolonging pump, cylinder and valve life. It will even save you on replacing your systems current OEM fitted filters elements, which are usually far more expensive than what we provide at LHS.
