BMG filtration mahle high performance filters

BMG’s fluid technology filtration solutions focus on the prevention and control of contamination of water and particulate to ensure optimum performance, improved reliability and extended service life of machinery, equipment and vehicles.

“The company’s extensive range of quality branded filtration systems, is supported by engineering solutions and technical services, to ensure fluids – including oil, fuel and lubricant oil – are within the required cleanliness standards,” says Steven Louw, BMG. “BMG recognises the importance of following international filtration trends, including compliance with ISO4406 cleanliness specifications for fuels and oils.

“Optimum filtration performance, combined with lower differential pressure of the system, significantly reduces energy consumption, which is critical to maximising production efficiencies.

“In the industrial sector, fuel maintenance is frequently neglected and the costs of using contaminated fuel, which results in equipment failure and downtime, are often under-estimated.

“Properly maintained hydraulic systems demand routine servicing of filter elements and this maintenance normally requires the shut down of the system, resulting in loss of production.

“What’s also notable about BMG’s Mahle Duplex pressure filters, is they allow continuous operation during element change-out. These modular filters are equipped with two filter elements and a selector valve to divert the oil flow to the clean element, while changing the contaminated element. There is no interruption to production during maintenance procedures.”

Mahle industrial filtration products – available in Southern Africa exclusively from BMG – are designed especially for machine manufacturers and operators of mobile and stationary hydraulic equipment.

This range includes Mahle Duplex filters, with a patented single-hand operation design and leakage-free switching of media flow.

The multilayered design of these filter elements offer high differential stability and a large dirt-holding capacity to provide constant filtration performance and maximum protection in diverse applications, even under pulsating loads.

Duplex filters are designed for hydraulic and lubrication systems for a low pressure range 32 (63) bar, medium pressure ranges to 210 bar and high pressure ranges to 360 bar.

These modular systems, which can be used as in-line filters and tank-fitted return filters, have an optimal flow design for improved pressure differential stability. Maintenance work, including the replacement of elements, can be carried out without suspending production.

Duplex filters comprise two filter housings which can be switched on and off interactively during operation via a change-over unit in the filter head, with no disruption to filtration.

An ergonomically designed switch-over lever enables three functions to be performed with one hand. When the lever is activated, a pressure equalisation valve opens, ensuring an equal pressure level in both filter chambers. The filter can be switched from one filter chamber to the other, without having to shut down the system. A safety lock secures the lever and prevents inadvertent switching.

These compact filters are fitted with highly efficient glass PS (Premium Select) filter elements, with a fineness up to 3 µm. These filter elements have a higher dirt absorption capability and pressure difference stability compared to standard filter elements.

Visual electrical and electronic maintenance indicators ensure optimum utilisation of the dirt-holding capacity of filter elements and also clearly indicate features like clogging, to simplify maintenance procedures.

These pressure-resistant filter elements are specifically matched to the required cleanliness class, pressure ratio and medium properties to ensure failure-free, economical operation.

Mahle has further improved its range of Premium Select elements – now known as Premium Select Plus. Features of this new generation include an increased dirt-holding capacity and an element design that is resistant to pressure impulses.

Mahle has made a strategic decision to focus on the automotive sector and has recently sold its industrial filtration division to the Filtration Group. BMG remains exclusive distributors of this range in Southern Africa and the local market will benefit from the Filtration Group’s plans to further expand the product portfolio, offering filter solutions to diverse sectors, including health, process technologies and for liquid and ambient air applications.

BMG’s strategy to enhance its fluid technology’s filtration services to meet growing market demand, encompasses the introduction of new products, with the latest developments in design technologies, materials and coatings.
