5 Errors Maintenance Of Heavy Equipment Hydraulic Systems That Could Be Fatal

DUNIAPEMBANGKITLISTRIK.COM - The majority of heavy equipment currently uses a hydraulic system because it has various advantages over other systems. The hydraulic system is capable of producing more power with minimum components, easier control of direction and movement of tools, minimum vibration of movement, high precision of movement, flexibility, and longevity.

5 Errors Maintenance Of Heavy Equipment Hydraulic Systems That Could Be Fatal

As with other heavy equipment components, poor or negligent maintenance can cause the hydraulic system to not operate properly and cause leakage and even damage to the machine as a whole (downtime). Sometimes, problems with a hydraulic system are caused by small mistakes that aren't even noticed.

Therefore, Amtiss has summarized the 5 hydraulic system maintenance errors that you might have made without conscious but fatal consequences, accompanied by the solution:

1. Hydraulic Pressure Regulation

The knobs on the pump and hydraulic valve are checked and reset when the engine has a problem. Usually, the pressure is set to the highest level with the assumption that it can speed up the engine's operation. This assumption is clearly WRONG!

Improper pressure settings can cause shock and even damage to the hydraulic system. This happens because the pressure is too high will push many internal components of the pump, exacerbating and accelerating wear on the components. Therefore, obey the recommended hydraulic system pressure level.

2. Hydraulic Pressure Gauge System

Pressure gauge or pressure gauge is often placed next to the pump of the check valve (check valve), not near the accumulator. When the pump is stopped, the pressure gauge will show the number 0 along with the flow of oil to the tank through an internal hydraulic pump.

This causes the operator / mechanic to think that the pressure is at 0, even though the pressurized liquid in the accumulator is being released. Therefore, a pressure gauge should be installed next to the accumulator.

3. Hydraulic Schemes for Troubleshoot Machines

Troubleshoot (troubleshooting) on ​​the machine can be done more quickly and easily if you master the scheme (chart) hydraulic system. But in some cases, not all mechanics / operators and even supervisors master hydraulic schemes well. This scheme is actually listed in the manual of the machine manufacturer, but it will be very time consuming to look for the manual and find an explanation page about this scheme. Even though the longer the engine downtime, the greater the company's operational losses.

Currently, hydraulic schemes and various guides from heavy equipment manuals can be accessed using mobile devices, such as Android-based smartphones and tablets. amtiss mobile app, a mobile application with various features that support the efficiency and optimal maintenance and asset management activities in the form of heavy equipment. In addition to allowing mechanics / operators / SPV to access various guides about heavy equipment, the Amtiss mobile app also supports planning, execution, and reporting of heavy equipment maintenance activities.

Take advantage of the Amtiss mobile app and provide enough training for mechanics / operators / SPV about the hydraulic system on the machine to shorten the duration of the machine troubleshoot.

4. Reservoir and Suction Strainer

Reservoirs are usually at a number of concerns compared to the filter system. In fact, the reservoir must be cleaned regularly at least once a year to prevent the formation of thick dirt deposits at the bottom of the oil tank. A dirty reservoir will change its function as an oil heat remover into a heat incubator.

The suction strainer found in most reservoirs must also be cleaned with the air blowing technique from the inside out. At least, clean it 1x a year so that the strainer is not clogged and causes pump cavitation.

5. Replacement Components

Replacing components has become a regular thing to do regularly or when a machine has a problem. It should be noted that similar components or spare parts are not necessarily the same. Always pay attention to the code of each component because it might look similar. but does not work on certain heavy equipment hydraulic systems.

To check component availability, you can use the Amtiss mobile app that is connected to the system between the operational field, headquarters, workshops and warehouses. You can also directly make spare part requests practically through a mobile device, without the need to go through a complicated and time-consuming paper document process.
