Periodic filter element replacement is vital to maintaining filter performance. Traditionally, filter element replacement has been driven by differential pressure drop gauges showing excessive air pressure drop, however, this has several drawbacks not least of which is access and visibility.
Parker wanted to ensure optimum filtration performance at all times, which is what matters most to customers and is the reason they installed filters in the first place. Periodic filter element replacement is the simplest and most effective way to ensure this optimum filtration.
To help its customers run an effective maintenance program, Parker developed a simple but highly affective service reminder system using a 12 month Timestrip® indicator, housed in a protective key-fob, which can either be attached to the product casing or logged to a product and kept in a secure office cabinet to provide a simple visual indicator of when to change elements and do annual service work.
