IMPROVE FUEL QUALITY

IMPROVE FUEL QUALITY “CLEAN, PROTECT & POLISH” Get it clean. Keep it clean. Deliver it clean. • Prevent problems before they occur • Protect your infrastructure investment Diesel is an organic substance that weakens over time due to a build-up of bacteria and algae incompatible with today’s high specification diesel engines. These impurities, together with water and rust particles caused by corrosion, often block filters and fuel pumps and damage fuel injectors. The inevitable result being downtime or engine failure. High quality filtration is no longer an option but a prerequisite for the efficient operation of today’s sophisticated engines. While most of the damage caused to engines by scum and other dirt has not changed much over the years, the diesel engine design has changed significantly. Not only has the power density of engines and resultant injection pressures of fuel systems evolved, so have the diesel property and global emissions standards. Donaldson’s Clean Fuel & Lubricant Solutions assists in reducing costly component replacement, preventing unplanned downtime as well as improving fuel efficiency by reducing injector wear. These advanced filtration technologies developed by Donaldson, ensure that stringent ISO Cleanliness levels in terms of ISO 4406 or “Cleaner Fuels” are achieved through single or multi-pass filtration, due to the high performing Beta 2000 (99.99% efficient) filter media within each product. 6 Donaldson Electrostatic Reduction Technology (DERT) prevents filter media damage from electrostatic discharge. Epoxy is used in filter construction for increased fluid compatibility. E-coating provides maximum corrosion resistance and epoxy adhesion. Viton® O-rings provide reliable sealing and maximum fluid compatibility. Fuels and Lubricant based products often become contaminated within bulk storage facilities or during transportation of product. Reliable fuel filtration technology is essential to ensure fuel cleanliness throughout the distribution process and on-vehicle. “Clean, Protect & Polish “is the foundation or design concept for our Donaldson Filtration Solutions in achieving Cleaner Fuels, says Philip Craig, Sales Manager at Donaldson Head Office Longmeadow, JHB CLEAN at the Inlet - “Most EFFECTIVE place to filter “ A good single pass filtration system on the inlet of the bulk storage tank reduces the risk of introducing contamination into your fuel storage infrastructure and helps maintain desired cleanliness levels. The diesel in your tank represents a significant investment. Why risk contaminating it by receiving a load of fuel with excessive levels of dirt, water, soft solids or bugs? Stop contamination before it stops you. PROTECT in Tank - “Keep water and dirt out of the tank during storage “ Protect your tanks, your fuel, and your equipment by refusing entry to harmful contaminants. Donaldson bulk filtration systems can be sized for any application. Small systems can be just as efficient as large, more complex systems, if designed correctly. Work sites tend to be dusty places, and fuel continues to be contaminated each time it is transferred or stored. The task at hand is to prevent additional dirt from getting into the diesel after it is in your bulk tank. This is something every fuel user can and should take steps to control. Dirt can get into your bulk or onboard fuel tank upon delivery, from the air, from the tank, or from direct contact. This can be prevented or minimized by good handling practices. Protect your diesel investment while it is in your bulk storage tank. Install T.R.A.P. breathers with integrated high efficiency air filtration. These breather filters reduce the risk of moisture and contaminants entering the bulk storage tank from the vent so that fluids are kept clean and dry. The T.R.A.P. Breather combines a high efficient 3-micron media pack together with a deliquescent membrane, that regenerates itself when air is expelled from the storage tank, suitable for ALL fuels and Lubricant storage. POLISH at Outlet - “Most CRITICAL place to filter – keep contaminant out of your equipment “ Clean your fuel one last time just before it enters the equipment. Point of use filters polish or remove any contaminants that may have been picked up in storage or during final transfer. This is the most critical place to filter, as it is the last safeguard before the fuel passes into your equipment For further information contact: Philip Craig, Sales Manager Tel: (011) 997 6090 Email: philip.craig@donaldson.com Web: www.donaldson.co.za Please visit www.mycleandiesel.com for more insight and technical assistance for Cleaner Fuels!

BMG’S HALLITE SEALING PRODUCTS FOR GENERAL INDUSTRY 2018 HYDRAULICS AND PNEUMATICS BMG – the only official distributor for Hallite Seals International Ltd in Central and Southern Africa - supplies an extensive range of hydraulic and pneumatic seals and sealing solutions for demanding environments. “Hallite sealing systems are manufactured from robust materials which include nitrile rubbers, rubber and fabric compounds and thermoplastic elastomers – all proven to keep a system free from external contamination,” says Marc Gravett, business unit manager of BMG’s Seals and Gaskets division. “Hallite’s design engineers and material technologists give careful attention to seal profile design and material selection and product properties are methodically studied to ensure the finished component has the required qualities to cope efficiently in harsh operating conditions. “Seals are subjected to extensive testing that reproduces continuous operating conditions where leakage, dynamic and breakout friction are recorded and performance factors like pressure, speed and temperature are carefully monitored.” Included in this range of hydraulic and pneumatic seals are rod and gland seals, piston and static seals, as well as support and bearing components, which are constantly upgraded to keep abreast with changing market demand. Hallite type 780 double acting piston seals with a robust assembly for efficient operation, offer reduced wear resistance and extended service life on any hydraulic cylinder application. Although these piston seals have been designed especially for one piece pistons, they are also suitable for two piece pistons. The type 780 is similar to the popular DAS seal. These double acting seals consist of a nitrile rubber sealing element, two split support rings and two split L-shaped bearings – one of each is located on either side of the seal. The sealing element is designed with multi- lips for efficient dynamic sealing with minimal low pressure friction. When pressurised, the lips of the support ring are extended to protect the system from extrusion damage. The support rings - which are manufactured from a tough, flexible polymer - and the L-shaped bearings are grooved to ensure that the fluid pressure properly energises the sealing element and also prevents pressure trapping within the seal assembly. These double acting piston seals are able to withstand operating conditions at a maximum speed of 0,5 m/sec, a temperature range of between - 30°C and +100°C and at a maximum pressure of 400 bar. Hallite type 506 self lubricating bearing strips, which are designed for high load capability, low friction and minimal swell, are manufactured to tight tolerances, providing bearing solutions for reciprocating, oscillating and slow rotary movement applications. These easy to use bearing strips are available as cut rings which are cut to size and customer specifications, ready for installation. They are also supplied as spiral lengths in various pre-formed diameters to suit a range of inside and outside diameters. These bearing strips are also available in a flat coil form in 10 m lengths suitable for a wide range of diameters. Flat coils are packed in a dispenser for easy handling and storage. Hallite type 506 bearing strips are used extensively on hydraulic cylinder rod and piston applications and can withstand extreme side loads, preventing metal to metal contact. The material’s design incorporates micro indentations on the bearing strip’s surface to trap fluid and provide built in lubrication to the bearing. The bearing strip is manufactured using a woven fabric reinforced polyester resin material that is compatible with different fluids, including mineral oils, water based fluids and phosphate esters. BMG’s extensive range of quality branded sealing products - which includes rotary shaft, torric, hydraulic and pneumatic seals, as well as allied products like O rings, waved washers, circlips, mechanical seals, gland packing and adhesives - complies with stringent international and local quality specifications. The company’s commitment to providing high quality seals is evident in the extreme care taken in brand selection, in terms of standardisation, reliability, flexibility and consistent quality controls. These sealing products meet the demands of the OEM and end user for efficient performance from equipment that needs to work harder and for longer periods, as productivity levels increase. BMG, which has been exclusive distributors in Southern Africa for Hallite Seals for over 35 years, provides a technical advisory and support service in all sectors.
