New High Viscosity Fluid Sampling System from HYDAC

HYDAC just released the newest addition to the Hy-Trax Series, a High Viscosity Fluid Sampling System. The Fluid Sampling System provides local visibility to the fluid condition of critical systems. It is ideal for applications including industrial gearboxes, wind turbine gearboxes, bulk fluid storage vessels and industrial hydraulics in cooler climates.

HyTrax High Viscosity Fluid Sampling System

Features and Benefits

  • Integrated micro variable speed driven pump-motor provides optimal flow for accurate sensor readings in variable conditions
  • The HY-TRAX High Viscosity Fluid Sampling System allows a user to monitor fluid condition from a reservoir tank or low-pressure sampling point
  • Compact design allows for installations with tight space constraints
  • The potentiometer-based pump controller is housed in a compact IP40 enclosure
  • Optional AC adapter available for converting 115V AC/60 Hz to 24V DC
  • Fluorocarbon elastomer (FKM) seals
  • Fluid viscosities up to 3,250 SUS (700 cSt)
  • Adjustable flow control valve providing optimal pressure for accurate sensor readings

What’s Included

  • HY-TRAX High Viscosity Fluid Sampling System according to model code
  • Sensor cables for integration with control module according to mode code (pass-through communication cables ordered separately)
  • Operation and maintenance manual
