Oil Filtration

When oils are contaminated during use with ball mills, crushers, pulverizers, and hydraulic equipment, the contamination in the oil can damage the rotating components of the equipment and create unnecessary equipment downtime.

Kaydon Filtration VKS oil filtration vessels are ASME Code built for heavy duty oil filtration applications in a mining environment.  An alternate to the VKS vessels are the Model 111 and 112 oil filtration vessels which are manufactured in aluminum, making their lightweight design easy to install in tight locations.  In addition to the VKS and 111/112 stand-alone filtration vessels, the KP portable oil filtration carts can be used for filtration of oils used in lube and hydraulic oil reservoirs, handling oils up to ISO 460 viscosity at 100F.  

Fuel Purification

Contaminated diesel fuel is a major contributor to haul truck and mobile equipment down time.  Diesel engines used in mining operations need diesel fuel purity levels increased to maintain up time.

Installing in-line fuel purification skid assemblies at each diesel fuel transfer location, including diesel fuel dispensing points, provide these benefits:

1.  Eliminates power loss caused by fuel contamination

2.  Extends injector service life on engines

3.  Minimizes costs associated with fuel system component failure

4.  Eliminates need for auditing fuel cleanliness in fuel transportation process

5.  Increases equipment availability by reducing fuel injection component problems

6.  Increases on-engine filter service life

The Kaydon Filtration product line of FCS2 bulk diesel fuel purification skid assemblies meet the demand for increased reliability and availability of mining haul trucks and mobile equipment by delivering clean and dry fuel during diesel fuel transfer.

Kaydon Filtration offers a complete selection of products tailored directly to the demands of mining applications. To find out more about Kaydon Filtration product solutions, click on the links below:

 

The FCS2 bulk diesel fuel purification skid assemblies are designed for diesel fuel transfer flow rates from 50 gpm to 300 dpm. 
        
These diesel fuel/water separator vessels are designed and constructed in accordance with ASME Code construction.  They are designed for water removal from diesel fuel in diesel fuel transfer operations.
 
Our VKS series are carbon steel ASME constructed vessels designed for in-line oil or fuel particulate filtration applications requiring rugged construction and long term durability.
        
111/112 Oil or Fuel Filtration Vessels
These aluminum filtration vessels provide particulate filtration for oil or fuel in a lightweight and easy-to-install configuration.  Works well as an over-sized hydraulic oil return line filter.

 

        
The KP portable oil filtration carts can be used with a variety of oils.  The KP systems are great for use with hydraulic oil power unit reservoirs and lube oil reservoirs.
