Europafilter enhanced the operating conditions of one of Talisman Energy’s hydraulic lift cranes by installing their Kidneyloop oil filtration systems in its engine room. These are available exclusively from Basil V R Greatrex .
Previously, the hydraulic lift crane experienced problems with operational reliability and valve function, and a risk of hydraulic breakdown was imminent. The company soon found that these operational issues were caused by the hydraulic oil in the cranes.
Talisman Energy originally sought out another supplier, and after they failed to drastically improve the cleanliness of the hydraulic oil, the company chose Europafilter.
Europafilter installed their Kidneyloop oil filtration systems in an offline circuit, which ensures the hyradulic oil is continuously treated while the cranes are in operation.
During the installation process, Europafilter chose to disconnect the 2 micron filter that was already in place from its pump, and connected a Europafilter 0.1 micron filter.
Talisman Energy has been so pleased with the oil filtration systems from Europafilter they plan to eventually purchase for their other crane.
