The improved, fully automated, mobile purifier removes damaging foreign substances – water, particulate contamination and dissolved gasses – from hydraulic and lubrication systems to increase capacity and enhance efficiency in demanding applications.
As a result, fluid life is extended, cutting operating costs and improving safety and performance.
“Continuous improvement is core to our business – and our customers’ business as well,” said Mary Jo Surges, vice president and general manager of Eaton’s Filtration Division.
“The enhancements will help our customers meet increasingly challenging needs in ever-changing conditions more safely, efficiently and with better return on investment. Ultimately it creates a mutually beneficial situation for everyone.”
Features of the IFPM 72 include a new user-friendly touch display, automatic shutdown and continuous measurement of fluid temperature, water saturation and filter flow-through rates.
The operating principle is based on vacuum evaporation, drawing contaminated fluid in and heating it to increase filtration speed. The cleaned fluid is then drawn out, passed through a highly efficient particulate removal filter and sent back to the system, where a water sensor allows for permanent control of the fluid saturation. Applications include hydraulic and lubrication oils and biodegradable fluids.
