In a critical application, Tri-Sen Systems was unable to find a coated cartridge that could stand up to normal hydraulic fluids with contaminates. After 36 months, longer life was expected out of the components.
Elwood was able to provide a stainless steel cartridge that was placed in the same system which showed little-to-no wear over time. The technology Elwood has installed on the existing system was able to provide a peace-of-mind to the user that the safety critical operation would work if ever needed to be put into use.
The customer states "when the Elwood components were removed for evaluation, they looked the same as they did the first day they were installed."
