Power, Pumps, and Motors – Filter Cart & Panel Unit
Selecting a pump/motor combination should be based on fluid viscosity, power source, and reservoir size. Due to the damage caused by cross contamination we recommend that you use a different system for each type of oil. Using one filtration unit for similar oils (hydraulic, gear, etc.) is second best and should include a filter change-out for each oil type used.
If electric power is readily available the following should be considered:
Our standard motors are 115/230 VAC, single phase, 60 Hz. Please see the section “Electric Motors” below for specifics and other options.
Air motors were selected to allow end-users who have easy access to clean, compressed air, but not electric power, the option of using a filter cart or panel unit. Please see the section “Air Motors” below for specifics. Air motors also are ideal for environments needing intrinsically safe systems.
The amount of time it takes to filter or transfer an oil should be considered when selecting a pump. When filtering the fluid inside a reservoir allow enough time for the fluid to circulate seven times.
Example 1: A 100 GAL reservoir will take 140 minutes to adequately filter at 5 GPM (100 GAL X 7, divided by 5 GPM).
