Flushing of accumulators is carried out at QHP using dedicated flushing rigs. Using dedicated flushing equipment eliminates cross contamination from differing fluid types such as water/ethylene glycols, mineral based fluids and synthetic fluids.
Particle counting is carried out using a laser based fluid analyser. The system analyses bottle samples taken from accumulators during flushing to verify that the fluid conforms to customer requirements or a specific specification. Fluid cleanliness can be verified to NAS 1638 or AS SAE 4059.
QHP have several flushing rigs, as standard we can flush with the following fluids:
- Castrol Transaqua HT
- Castrol Transaqua HT2
- Mineral Oil
- Castrol Brayco Micronic SV/3
- Macdermid Oceanic HW443
We also have a dedicated rig for small accumulators and diaphragm accumulators.
Other fluids are available on request, please contact QHP for more details.
