Hydraulic Pressure Reservoir, Disposing

  Note

  • The installed hydraulic pressure reservoir is around a closed hollow body; that is impinged on by the prefilled working gas (nitrogen) with an inner pressure
  • Because it is prohibited to scrap a closed hollow body, the hydraulic pressure reservoir must be drained before disposal.

- Remove the hydraulic pressure reservoir. Refer to → Chapter "Transmission, Disassembling and Assembling".

  WARNING

The system is under pressure.

  • Wear protective eyewear and hearing protection when engaging the pressure reservoir.
  • When the drill bit passes through in the gas space due to the internal pressure the shavings can be flung around.

- Tension the hydraulic pressure reservoir in the vise.

- Completely drill out approximately 25 mm -dimension x- from the square deck area with a 3 mm drill bit.

- The pressureless hydraulic pressure reservoir can then be scrapped.
