NTF Bypass filtration on Road Sweepers to prevent valve malfunctions
There are many problems with the hydraulic pumps and valves in road sweepers sticking or blocking completely due to the smaller contamination in the oil. A standard filter package usually filters down to 10-25 microns because large amounts of oil must be able to flow through it. However, critical components such as electronically operated valves, pumps, cylinders, etc. have tolerances of 1-5 microns These disturbances arise because the standard filter does not filter out the 4µ and 6µ particles. As a result, unnecessary warranty claims and end users experience problems and downtime of their machines and sometimes dangerous situations can arise because the machines do not respond in time. Research and practical experience with sweepers and other industrial machines shows that these problems are solved by installing an NTF micro bypass filter.
