The TMR™ N2 nitrogen blanketing system provides unlimited capacity to remove water and eliminate atmospheric water ingression.
TMR N2 manages factors that accelerate oxidation lowering the rate of lubricant breakdown, reducing maintenance requirements and extending fluid life.
Water is the most common and damaging contaminant found in hydraulic and lubricating systems. Water can exist in 3 forms: free, dissolved and emulsified. The TMR z – Total Moisture Removal Nitrogen system cost effectively removes all 3 forms of water from lubricants and hydraulic fluids through mass transfer which is a highly effective, nonmechanical process. Most water removal systems use heat, vacuum and pumps, which are all expensive to operate and maintain, to force the separation of water from the lubricant.
The TMR N2 system exploits the principle of chemical equilibrium to remove all types of water in a much more gentle, and energy efficient methodology.
In many applications, the primary mode of water ingression is atmosphere, which provides an unlimited source of water whenever the moisture content in the atmosphere is higher than in the lubricant. Atmospheric water ingression rates are typically low and constant, which lends itself perfectly to the TMR N2
system. Using mechanical separation systems in this scenario would simply dehydrate the lubricant to an unsaturated state so that it can absorb more water from atmosphere. This creates an energy intensive cycle that fails to address the primary cause of water ingression.
