Air, the little leaks that keep men poor

/ On : 06.00/ Thank you for visiting my small blog here. If you wanted to discuss or have the question around this article, please contact me e-mail at mozabani@yahoo.com
Hello Air,

It never ceases to AMAZE me how much dinero
some hydraulic equipment users leave on the table.

Here's a few examples:

1. A maintenance manager at an open-cut mine,
complaining about how much his mine was spending on
hydraulic filters for their fleet of 600-ton shovels.

Each shovel has six return filter elements
costing 2,500 buxs each and they're changed every 2,000 hours.
Because these machines work at least 6,000 hours per year
his mine was spending over a quarter of a million
annually - just on return filters.

In an effort to reduce this cost
he was trying to source "a cheaper filter".

When I asked him why he was changing the filters
every 2,000 hours, he said: "Because that's what
the equipment manufacturer recommends."

Well, he now changes these filters 'on condition'
NOT on hours in service.

And the resultant saving? Five figures per year.

2. The maintenance supervisor for a packaging manufacturer
grudgingly tolerating recurring failure of a high-priced
radial piston pump.

After asking him a few questions, I was able to uncover
a major flaw in the way the pump had been configured.

The resultant saving? Four figures per year.

3. A mobile plant manger with hydraulic machines suffering
chronic overheating problems - hose and seal failures,
oil degradation and lubrication issues.

Turns out the cause of the overheating (and its fix)
is not what you'd first think.

The resultant saving? Six figures per year.

In case you're interested - and if you've read this far
you should be - the solutions to these and many
similar hydraulic maintenance issues will be revealed
during the Advanced Hydraulic Maintenance Workshop
I'm teaching in Las Vegas, USA on March 26:


Attendance is a no-brainer for the right candidate.

BUT don't think you have to be an equipment OWNER
to benefit from this knowledge.

The last time I presented this Workshop in Cleveland, Ohio,
one student walked up to me and announced he was going to
use what he'd learnt to get a raise.

When I asked him how he planned to go about this,
he replied:

"Simple really. I'm going to:
* apply your techniques,
* track the results,
* show my boss how much money I've saved him
* AND THEN ask for MY RAISE."

This made perfect sense to me.
Because its the SAME system I use
to make a six-figure consulting income,
working from home only one day a week.

And I'm teaching it in Vegas for what will
likely be the LAST time.

So if you want in on this, be quick:


Yours for better hydraulics knowledge,

Brendan Casey
