Industrial Maintenance is essential to ensure the proper functioning of the several equipments used in a company. As we explained in an article published on our blog, this practice extends the use of machines and, at the same time, reduces the expenses with malfunctions.

One technique widely used in Industrial Preventive Maintenance is Flushing. It is an innovative procedure that consists of the internal cleaning of the several pipes of the machines and industrial systems. It is performed through the use of many filters – which retain impurities – during a fluid recirculation process. This is done at high speed and with high turbulence.

What makes up a Flushing unit is the combination of several factors, such as speed, pressure, turbulence, oil heating and particle counter. This is the only way to remove all the contaminants that affect the performance of industrial equipments.



Flushing as an Industrial Maintenance process


Daily use causes the hydraulic systems and circuits of industrial equipment contamination by debris that lodges in the walls of the pipes. This is, in fact, one of the major causes of breakdowns.

To avoid damage and ensure that the quality of production is not compromised, frequent maintenance is essential. This is where Flushing comes in.

This is an important procedure because, by promoting the internal cleaning of the appliances, it preserves the respective components. Simultaneously, it maintains the productive quality and the good performance of the equipment, avoiding damages.
