Engineering solutions provider BMG’s Fluid Technology division’s filtration solutions comprise a range of fluid power components and systems.

These solutions are supported by the team’s broad technical capabilities.

“Proficient filtration disciplines in all industries – especially chemicals and corrosive environments and arduous mining conditions – are critical for dependable performance, high efficiency and extended service life of machinery, equipment and vehicles,” says BMG low pressure fluid technology business unit manager Willie Lamprecht


He warns that without a structured control and contamination prevention programme, premature equipment failure is likely to occur, leading to unnecessary downtime and costly replacement of parts.

“Optimum filtration performance, in conjunction with a lower differential pressure of the system, significantly reduces energy consumption, which is critical to maximising production efficiencies in all sectors.”

The company’s fluid technology services include solutions for fuel and industrial filtration systems, hydraulics and pneumatics, lubrication, hydraulic hose and fittings, as well as instrumentation, pumps and industrial valves, says Lamprecht.

“The BMG team is committed to improving operational efficiencies for customers in all industries, by providing essential filtration, separation and purification technologies.”

Additionally, included in the filtration range are OMTEC ECO Blue Filters, Titan power breathers and FG desiccant breathers.

OMTEC ECO spin-on elements have been designed for quick, effortless and efficient servicing of the fuel filtration system, without the need for specialised tooling, lifting equipment or elevated work platforms.

With this system, filter media have greater protection from environmental contamination during installation and maintenance, than conventional cartridge style elements.

He explains that BMG’s ECO spin-on elements, which consist of three spin-on cartridges and water-repellent cartridges, offer three to six Micron ratings and a working pressure of 24 bar.

This range is suitable for efficient filtration and water absorption in all diesel fuels and is used largely by transport companies and in mobile equipment, in mining machines and any machine burning diesel for energy.

Further, Lamprecht explains that the Titan Power breathers comprise various options, including standard check-valve technology, a no check-valve design for extreme flow applications and SmartFlow adapter models.

These breathers are suitable for large gearboxes, storage tanks, wind turbines and in remote applications, like tank farms.

“Standard Titan check-valve breathers offer protection from ambient humidity in intermittent operations. Notable features of this model include dual zone microglass filtration media that deliver enhanced filtration efficiency, high dirt holding capacity and low pressure drop.”

Inflow/outflow check valves protect the Power gel media from humid ambient conditions, significantly extending service life of the breather, notes Lamprecht.
