Hytec Fluid Technology reopens oil analysis laboratory

Second Quarter 2024 News & events

Due to the increase in demand, Hytec Fluid Technology (HFT) has reopened its oil analysis laboratory in Kempton Park, with a bolstered service offering. The state-of-the-art laboratory caters to a range of industries where the reliability and performance of hydraulic fluids, glycols and related substances are crucial for manufacturing and industrial facilities, power generation plants and chemical processing plants.

To further enhance the laboratory’s service offerings, it now features new technologies. These technologies include the CIX system, which assesses particle level contamination in hydraulic fluids, assisting clients in achieving industry-required ISO 4406 levels of cleanliness in their oil. Another new technology includes the X-ray fluorescence (XRF) machine, which identifies various elements and provides detailed chemical breakdowns of materials.

“The reopening of the laboratory marks an impressive milestone for HFT and Bosch Rexroth Africa. It is equipped to assist clients in achieving optimal performance through advanced analysis techniques. The reopening reflects a continued commitment to resuming full-scale operations and contributes to meeting the industry’s demands for analysis of hydraulic fluids,” said laboratory analyst, Abigal Nel.

A sample bottle with a minimum volume of 100 ml is required for accurate analysis, testing and reporting. This ensures that crucial information is relayed to the client to protect their equipment, boosting production and profitability. HFT provides total fluid management solutions to the industrial and mobile equipment markets, helping companies extend service intervals, maximise uptime, and reduce the total cost of ownership of their hydraulic machinery.
