Two DAHL 300 units mounted on a convenient dolly. The units are connected in a series flow arrangement. The hydraulic oil flows through the first unit where Baldwin's special water absorbing element (301-CS) absorbs the emulsified water. The hydraulic oil next flows to a second DAHL unit where the 301-MPG synthetic media element filters contaminants out of the oil. This unit is furnished with a 5 GPM pump. Two vacuum gauges monitor the pressure drop across both filters. An automatic vacuum switch shuts the pump off at a predetermined vacuum setting. Element water capacity is about 1 1/2 quarts.
Please note, these units only ship direct from Baldwin via UPS Ground.
The DAHL Hydraulic Recyclers are specifically designed to remove emulsified water from hydraulic oils. Since water emulsified in hydraulic oil is not removed by the normal DAHL coalescing action, Baldwin has designed a special filter element that absorbs water that has been emulsified in oil. The water remains in the filter element until the element is disposed. As the element absorbs water, the filtering media expands, increasing the restriction in the filter. By monitoring the pressure differential of the element, it is possible to determine when the element is saturated.
Two unique DAHL elements have been developed in conjunction with the hydraulic units. The first element is the 301-CS. The 301-CS contains a special polymer enhanced media that absorbs water regardless of emulsification. The element has the capacity to absorb over 1 1/2 quarts of water. (This is dependent upon oil viscosity, temperature and other factors.) When the element becomes saturated, the water is disposed along with the element.
The second element is the 301-MPG. This has a synthetic grade media that is designed as a fine clean-up element. It has a Beta ratio of 2 at 3 micron and 100 at 12 micron, making this element an excellent choice for most hydraulic clean-up applications.
Baldwin has designed two portable clean-up carts based on these hydraulic elements. The 300-DHRAP5 is designed for applications requiring larger quantities of water removal with less concern about contaminant removal. The 300-DHRAS5 is a two stage unit with one absorbing element and one clean-up element. To allow effective removal of emulsified water, these units are best used in multiple-pass applications.
