Industrial Market: Our services are widely used in Manufacturing Facilities, Quarry and Milling Operations, Recycling Plants, Incinerators, Marine Terminals, and other land based facilities that use hydraulic systems in their operations.
Marine Market: Most operations on a ship are being performed by a hydraulic system. Deck Machinery, Hatch Covers, Cranes, Steering and Ballast systems are only a few examples.
Government: BHI is currently being utilized by a wide range of Local, State and Federal Agencies. Our expertise has made us a trusted source for service to Dams, Locks, Target Systems, Test Chambers, Pumping Stations, and Sea Going Vessels.
Commercial / Retail: Originally focused on Bailers & Compactors, we soon expanded to Sign, Roofing, and Building Supply companies as well as personnel Lifts, Railroad Equipment & Utility Maintenance vehicles.
Construction: You can’t build anything without the use of hydraulics. Moving dirt, lifting material, shoring trenches, boring tunnels, drilling wells, mixing and pumping concrete are just a few examples.
“Performance Under Pressure”
Because we are a Service Company, we are very familiar with the pressures that come with unexpected breakdowns or outages. When “Murphy” strikes, our customers count on our expertise and experience to get them running again. We’ve been providing these services and solutions for over 55 years and although we haven’t seen it all, we’ve seen enough to know what works and what doesn’t. It’s this experience that allows us to solve your problems quickly and efficiently.
Something YOU can do:
Keep it Clean. Cleanliness is truly next to Godliness when it comes to hydraulics. Up to 90% of all hydraulic system failures can be attributed to contaminated oil. Even before breakdown, contaminants in fluid can reduce system efficiency.
– Filter Newly Added Fluid – New oil is typically contaminated beyond what most equipment manufacturers recommend. Use a filtered transfer pump.
– Filter Changes – Establish and follow a program for cleaning of Reservoir Breathers & Suction Strainers, as well as the replacement of filter elements.
– Repair Leaks Immediately – If fluid can leak out, contaminates can find their way in. Take care when opening any part of the system to atmosphere.
– Keep the Equipment Clean – Keep the exterior of the equipment clean from dust, dirt, and debris. Buildup will trap heat & ultimately find a way in.
Some things WE can do:
Preventive Maintenance: Baltimore Hydraulics will conduct Preventive Maintenance visits to your equipment on a schedule that meets your needs. Trained Technicians will assess the condition of your system checking pressures, flows, and for signs of possible problems. A report of our findings and recommendations is provided, allowing for repairs or maintenance to be scheduled at your convenience. A fluid contamination “Particle Count” test is also conducted as part of this service.
System Upgrades: Hydraulic systems can last so long that new technology has made older systems obsolete. We’re not saying old is bad, but some innovations can improve the performance and dependability of older units.
Emergency Service: Ultimately things are going to fail, and probably at the worst time. That’s why we are available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.
