HOLLAND, Mich.--Evoqua Water Technologies’ Separation Technologies business is launching a new, innovative hydraulics system called the J-Power™ Mark V hydraulics system.
This new hydraulics design is the result of a year-long design iteration process. The J-Power Mark V will now be the standard hydraulic system on all small to-medium sized JWI™ brand J-Press® filter presses sized from 630 - 1200 mm.
This is the fifth generation of hydraulic design improvements over the 40-year history of the J-Press filter press. Specifically this new design allows for compressed air to be released immediately when closing the press, and includes a more efficient flow of oil saving wear on the hydraulic pump. These efficiencies increase the lifetime of the pump and related components, and add reliability to the operation of the equipment.
Not only do these improvements create operating efficiencies, they also create a better user experience for the filter press operator. Closing the press now results in an immediate follower plate stop as a result of the improvements in compressed air release. This improved usability increases the safety of the operator and improves the time it takes to discharge the filter cake.
Redesigning the J-Press filter press hydraulic system is part of Evoqua's ongoing customer-focused effort to engineer the best equipment and create a lower cost of ownership.
