Equipment manufacturer Parker Hannifin released a new portable purification system with applications in the hydroelectric power sector at the recent POWER-GEN International conference and exhibition in Orlando.
Called the “Sentinel”, the unit is the only purifier on the market with an automatic monitoring system, according to the company.
The Sentinel is Parker Hannifin‘s smallest purifier, and is designed for oil and hydraulic fluid reservoir systems of up to 1,000 gallons. The unit serves three main functions — removing water, degassing and removing solid particles — while functioning in any of three operating modes.
“Power generators are our largest market for Sentinel, as it is one of the only industries that never change their oil unless absolutely necessary — typically adding new oil only as their reservoirs become low,” said Garry Moore, Product Manager of Parker’s Hydraulic Fuel Systems Division. “This means they depend on their filtration and purifier systems to keep their oil clean, in order to optimize operating conditions for their transformers, EHC drives and turbines, and reduce their high operating costs and profit losses with reduced downtime.”
HydroWorld.com reported that Parker Hannifin announced a new cylinder monitoring system called “Intellinder” this past July.
