Cleaning Your Heavy Equipment Air Filters Is The Right Thing To Do

To ensure your machinery is operating at optimal performance you need to ensure that all fluid systems are clean and unworn. With several fluid systems contributing to the operation of machinery, you need to minimise foreign bodies and the effects they can have on your engine. Foreign bodies such as dust or grit can adhere to surfaces, where it can 

-block tubes restricting fluid flow

-cover surfaces reducing thermal conductivity for cooling

-embed between moving surfaces causing abrasion in the engine

Cleaning your DPF

Why you should clean your Diesel Particulate Filter

Keeping your diesel particulate filter (DPF) clean will save you thousands in the long run. Did you know just under 1kg of unburnt ash can be stuck inside a dirty DPF? When your filter is full, it can cause a series of major problems for your vehicles, including: increased downtime for regeneration (the burning of ash in your DPF), reduced fuel economy, loss of horsepower, serious damage to your DPF and eventually damage to your engine.

The ‘Green Machine’ could dust hundreds of thousands off mining maintenance bills

As powerful as the moving parts of mining machinery are, a small amount of dust can damage them, yet the movement of ore creates a huge amount of dust. Therefore, air filters are used within this equipment to filter out the dust and pollutants to avoid impeding their performance. Air filters are used in crushing and grinding machinery, loaders and trucks to name a few. Considering the amount of dust that these filters see, they need replacing pretty regularly. The replacement has to be incorporated into maintenance schedules, which is costly. Installing new filters is expensive and timely, not to mention the strain that they put on the environment when going into landfill.
