Elesa filler breathers and level indicators have been an important part of specialist hydraulic hand pumps, pressure testing units and dispensing equipment from Sarum Hydraulics for 30 years. This is a long term relationship based on quality components, leading design style and reliability of supply, which has enabled Sarum Hydraulics to produce equipment for a wide range of applications requiring very reliable high performance actuation, pressure testing and system charging pumps such as their Micropac hand pump series.
These are pumps which are likely to find themselves as operationally critical in especially arduous conditions such as: marine on-board, from yachts to lifeboats, ferries, oil rigs and gas platforms, as well as process plants, pumping sites and food processing, medical lifting equipment and for use on construction sites. Aerospace/Defence – helicopter and aircraft service and maintenance are also important environments.
At a time when most manufacturers were still using plated carbon steel components, Sarum Hydraulics saw the chance to use the Elesa innovative moulded polymer filler breather caps across their range of high grade stainless steel hydraulic pumping products.
Explained Sarum Hydraulics Managing Director John Foster “Elesa has proven a great supplier partnership. Within the filler breather range, we needed a high quality low corrosion polymer breather cap that offers easy dipstick operation, non-splash fill and a pressurised option. Caps and level indicators from Elesa look the part and can be tailored to our exact needs. We can forget onerous and costly swapping between port sizes on fabricated reservoirs. For us, the Elesa range has proven to be seamless.”
Sarum Hydraulics has standardised on the safe-fill SFP filler breather allowing easy addition of the FRF basket, dipsticks and the SFW pressurised cap. This combination prevents backsplash and ingress of foreign material. For level indication, the HCX INOX liquid level sight gauge with transparent sight tube and stainless steel fittings at 127mm or 254mm centres are a robust choice.
