All full-size Heil Environmental refuse collection and recycling vehicles now are equipped with an updated in-tank hydraulic oil filter. Heil says the 3-micron filter is more efficient and captures up to 85 percent more 4-micron contaminants and 50 percent more 6-micron contaminants than its previous filter.
According to the company, the hydraulic oil passing through the filter becomes much cleaner than even new oil, helping to extend the life of the vehicle’s hydraulic pump, valves and cylinders. The new filters have the same dimensions as the company’s previous 5-micron filters, making it easy for customers to upgrade existing vehicles; older vehicles that use 6-micron or 10-micron filters can be retrofitted with simple conversion kits.
The filters and conversion kits are available through Parts Central, a Heil company. For more information, visit www.heil.com.
