At the Adi Prima Suraprinta newsprint mill in Indonesia, high production downtime due to bearing and seal failure was a problem. The bearing and seal failures were attributed to contaminated hydraulic fluid.

A local equipment distributor recommended installing a magnetic filter rod (OEI’s 3RNC5812) into an oil reservoir. After four days of operation, the magnetic filter was removed and inspected. High concentrations of ferrous metal, down to submicron size, were captured by the magnetic filter.

Since the installation of the OEI magnetic filter the fluid cleanliness has improved tremendously, reducing component wear and increasing uptime.

The OEI magnetic filter is easily cleaned and the trapped contamination can be analyzed for component wear identification allowing predictive maintenance planning. One Eye Industries 403-242-4221,
