For example, hydraulic units are used as oil circulation lubrication systems. These systems cool and lubricate bearings and gearboxes. Particularly in the case of large or high-speed transmissions in which a high temperature load is present due to the rotational speed or ambient temperature, oil circulation lubrication offers advantages. The oil is removed from the hydraulic tank in the circuit and returned again. The operation of the oil is very warm and additionally quickly returned to the hydraulic tank so that it swirls in the tank and is present as an aerosol in the air. Small to very small oil aerosols are forced through the ventilation filter into the environment. The oil particles are inhaled and settle on all components.
The fine aerosols can cause serious health damage to the affected employees. In addition, the affected equipment and rooms must be cleaned consuming, which causes high costs. Not to be neglected is also that the precious resource oil must be refilled regularly. In order to protect the environment from oil particles, oil mist separators from GIEBEL are a very effective solution. Through the use of these adsorbers, the large oil aerosols are returned by condensation in the tank and bound the small oil particles in the adsorber. An outflow of oil mist is thus completely prevented and the function of the hydraulic system is permanently ensured.
Especially test rigs place high demands on components and have to work permanently and reliably. With the use of GIEBEL Adsorber, the protection of the environment from contamination with oil mist should be ensured. The very small particles of oil are bound by attractive forces of the activated carbon and remain in the adsorber.
