Hydraulic System Inspection
Atlantic States has performed extensive hydraulic system inspections for customers looking to reduce costs within their operations. At an agreed upon interval, we inspect each hydraulic system for leakage, hose condition, fill screen integrity, oil level, filter condition ,and oil reservoir temperature. If the temperature is too high, we will check the efficiency of the heat exchanger by measuring the temperature of the water and oil, into and out of it.
At the time of inspection, an oil sample will be drawn from each reservoir. The samples will be sent to a special laboratory where they will be tested for viscosity and water contamination. Each sample will then be pushed through an 8-micron filter disc to filter out contamination that was present in the oil. These discs will be presented to you for inspection, along with recommendations for any corrective action that may be required.
Providing the proper lubricant in the right place at right time interval is critical to controlling costs. We inspect every piece of equipment within your facility and prepare a set of lubrication instructions. These instructions will include equipment name, the component lubricated, the proper lubricants, the method of application, and the services frequency. Special care will be taken to recommend as few different products as possible while still adhering to good lubrication fundamentals. We can also supply metallic stickers that can be affixed to the lubrication points of each machine indicating the proper lubricant to be used for that application.
We conduct on-site training clinics to increase the efficiency of maintenance personnel. The training will be presented by our in-house lubrication specialists who have over 60 years experience in the industry.
Failed Parts Analysis
It is impractical to replace a component without determining the reason for the failure. The replacement will fail for the same reason as the original part. We will inspect failed parts and use the available resources to determine the reason for failure.
