Case Study: Mag-Shields Improve Excavator Availability
Challenge A fleet of Hitachi EX5600 excavators operated at a Queensland coal mine were suffering lost time due to high rates of Contamination Sensor Alarms.  These alarms necessitated stopping the machine while maintenance checked and cleaned the sensors before the machine could start again. 
Further, the elevated levels of iron in the machine's hydraulic system were causing reduced component life.  Solution After hearing of success with similar Hitachi machines...
