Schroeder Industries, a recognized leader in filtration and fluid conditioning products, introduces the Ion Exchange Unit (IXU) for the conditioning of flame resistant, phosphate-ester-based (HFD-R) hydraulic and lubrication fluids. The easy-to-service Ion Exchange elements of the IXU series effectively remove acidic products of decomposition caused by the hydrolysis and/or oxidation of the fluids. The units are applied to hydraulic and lubrication oil tanks of up to 5,000 gallons (20,000 liters) with volumetric flow of up to approximately 2.4 gallons per minute (9 liters per minute) in the bypass flow. Mobile or stationary versions of the IXU are available.
The IXU features real time monitoring of ISO cleanliness classes, longer oil change intervals, and increases in the lifetime of operating fluids and components. The components on these easy to serve units can be replaced without tools and the filter elements can be removed with the cover pointing “upward”. The IXU is ideal to combine with Schroeder’s SVD dewatering unit. The IXU is also available as a complete unit, a modular system for retrofitting existing bypass circuits, or for OEM applications.
