AC Fluid Technology
AC Fluid Technology specialises in hydraulic system controls. Offshore applications includes the control and monitoring of hydraulic, lubricant and coolant fluids – including ATEX, DNV and GL certified controls. Klotz particle counting systems to ISO4406 and NAS standards for the monitoring of drilling fluids and water systems for ships and rigs. High quality, robust Schneider servo-valves have proved themselves in the extreme wind, rain, heat or sub-zero conditions encountered in shipping and offshore applications.
ATEX/GL/DNV certified products
LIQUID LEVEL AND TEMPERATURE CONTROLS, COOLERS AND CIRCULATION PUMPS
Our comprehensive selection of level and temperature controls, coolers and circulation pumps – with a well-established Offshore user base – offer combined solutions for the control of liquid level and temperature, with switched or continuous analogue output.
Ruggedly designed – including an ATEX, DNV and GL certified range – and having precise control and reliability, their many applications include hydraulic drive systems, hydraulic motor, power unit and control systems, variable speed power transmissions and variable speed drives.
PARTICLE COUNTING, MEASURING and MONITORING SYSTEMS
Klotz laser particle measuring systems to ISO4406 and NAS standards are for measuring particulate contamination in fluids. A number of established Offshore users test in such diverse applications as synthetic-based and water-based deepwater well drilling fluids and the commissioning of water systems in ships and rigs.
Examples of the diversity of other applications include:
• Testing hydraulic, lubrication and coolant fluids.
• Contamination testing of power generating and transformer lubricating fluids.
• Contamination testing of diesel and kerosene.
• Testing drinking water and the purity of solutions in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries.
• Determination of residual contamination in flushing and cleaning machinery during the machining of components.
The logging of contamination may be determined continuously online or in the lab.
SERVO VALVE TECHNOLOGY
The servo valve is the heart of every electro hydraulic control system. Conformance to static and dynamic parameters requires equipment of the highest quality.
The Schneider product range is widely used throughout the offshore oil and gas industry, and has proven themselves in extreme conditions – whether in wind, rain, heat or sub-zero temperatures Schneider’s robust systems work steadily and reliably. Schneider piston slide valves in single and multi-stage versions are subjected to stringent quality control.
The Schneider HVM servo valve range embraces single, two and three-stage valves having a flow rate ranging from 0.4l/min to 1,000l/min with pressures up to 420bar. Besides the standard range, application-related special valve designs are available, for example low-leakage pistons, two return flanges, and highly dynamic valves.
