Oil contamination is one of the major risk of failure of expensive component of the hydraulic system, generate frequent downtimes.
In order to reduce the risk of contamination of new oil during the filling process, Sandvik has developed the Electric Filling Pump for hydraulic tank(s).
This on-board oil pump enables hydraulic oil to be filled, from ground level, straight from barrels, without having to use any other container that could be dirty and bring contamination in the oil. The oil is pumped through a filter ensuring the oil is clean and reduces possibility of contamination of oil during filling.
On units equipped with two separate hydraulic tanks, there is a selector.
