HYDAC Vacuum Dehydrators

HYDAC FAM 10 Oil Purifier

The HYDAC FAM 10 Oil Purifier / FluidAqua Mobil FAM 10 series operates on the principle of vacuum dewatering to eliminate free and dissolved water as well as free and dissolved gases from hydraulic and lubrication fluids. Since it uses HYDAC offline filter element technology with its high contamination retention capacity and filtration efficiency, the unit is extremely economical.

All units have an AquaSensor AS1000 for continuous monitoring of the water content and for controlling the unit. A particle sensor CS1000 can also be supplied as an option for simultaneous monitoring of solid particle contamination. To increase the dewatering capacity, for high viscosity fluids or for low fluid temperatures, an integrated heater is provided. The Siemens S7 series of programmable logic control (PLC) in combination with a Siemens control panel guarantees simple and reliable operation in many languages.

Benefits of the FluidAqua Mobil FAM 10 Oil Purifier
Extremely low residual water levels, gas levels and particle contamination in the operating fluids make for:

  • Longer oil change intervals
  • Improved component service life
  • Greater machine availability
  • Reduction in the LifeCycle Cost (LCC)
