KNOWLEDGE BASE spindle for each oil sample was reciprocally dipped into the oil for 3 s and brought out of the oil for 57 s. This procedure was carried out for 48 h. The spindles were left to dry and the spindle mass after the test was measured to determine the mass of sludge and varnish. [6] Tests performed by the Milwaukee School of Engineering Fluid Power Institute run at 2200 rpm with aeration using viscosity grade 46 fluids. Productivity relates to the volumetric efficiency of a formulation of Shell Tellus S4 VE when compared with a conventional, mineral oil fluid in standard hydraulic application under controlled conditions. The claim is based on test results in accordance with applicable industry standards and Shell protocols and methodology. Results may vary based on operating conditions and equipment. 24 HYDRAULICS & PNEUMATICS July/August 2020 www.hpmag.co.uk Discover the program of spirals made of PVC nylon www.hosestech.it • UL 94 V0 fire resistance • Halogen free • Temperature - 30 + 110 • Meets the norm EN UNI 45542-2: 2015 • Degree of risk HL1 - HL2 - HL3 Requirements set R22 - R23 FLEXSPIRAL/FR-EXTRA new protection spiral for railways Condition monitoring specialist Sensonics has recently achieved ISO 45001 certification and now has a fully integrated management system that also encompasses ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
