Helgesen: Maintaining the Cleanliness of Hydraulic Oil Systems

Headquartered in Hartford, Wisconsin, Helgesen is a leading designer and manufacturer of custom hydraulic reservoir tanks catering to the agriculture, construction, firefighting, forestry, material handling, mining, and railway markets. Founded in 1977, Helgesen produces hydraulic reservoirs ranging from those with a 5-gallon capacity to those able to house well over 730-gallons to meet a wide range of customers’ volume requirements.

Helgesen does not view its products as merely hydraulic tanks but rather as advanced fluid conditioning devices. Helgesen tanks improve hydraulic circuit performance, and increase hydraulic system reliability—all in a cost-efficient system. The company’s European operations are based in Bydgoszcz, Poland, its Asian facilities are in Tianjin, China, and its South American offices are located in Boituva, Brazil. Helgesen utilizes a proprietary production system to optimize the manufacturing of each reservoir tank it produces. The system dubbed the Helgesen R4 Production System consistently ensures products are formed to an application’s specified needs. Because fluid aeration causes a multitude of problems in a hydraulic or lubrication oil system, Helgesen strives to make its production environment as controlled as possible.

Aeration in a system occurs when air taints the hydraulic fluid. Evidence of the contamination includes unpredictable actuator movements, foaming of the hydraulic fluid, and a present banging noise when the actuator compresses and decompresses. Helgesen’s R4 Production System produces products de-aerate fluid mechanically, decrease size, reduce fluid temperature, increase fluid dwell time, and improve suction pot pressure.
