Hydraulic Filtration
Different types of hydraulic filtration

What is Hydraulic Filtration and Why do you Need it?

Hydraulic filters protect your hydraulic system components from damage due to contamination of oils or other hydraulic fluid in use caused by particles. Every minute, approximately one million particles larger than 1 micron (0.001 mm or 1 μm) enter a hydraulic system. These particles can cause damage to hydraulic system components because hydraulic oil is easily contaminated. Thus maintaining a good hydraulic filtration system will increase hydraulic component lifetime.

Every minute one million particles that are larger than 1 micron (0.001 mm) can enter a hydraulic system.

The wear of hydraulic system components is dependent on this contamination, and the existence of metal parts in hydraulic system oil (iron and copper are particularly powerful catalysts) accelerates its degradation. A hydraulic filter helps to remove these particles and clean the oil on a continuous basis. The performance for every hydraulic filter is measured by its contamination removal efficiency, i.e. high dirt-holding capacities.

A hydraulic filter helps to remove these particles and clean the oil on a continuous basis. The performance for every hydraulic filter is measured by its contamination removal efficiency, i.e. high dirt-holding capacities. Almost every hydraulic system contains more than one hydraulic filter. The hydraulic filters between pump and actuators are referred to as pressure filters and the hydraulic filters between the actuators and tanks are low pressure or return line filters.


Low Pressure Filters

Low pressure filters operate at pressures of 10 bar or less. Suction filters are used for coarse filtration and return line filters or bypass filtration for fine filtration.

Type of low pressure filters

Heavy Duty Filtration

Heavy duty filtration for demanding hydraulic applications under tough conditions in continuous operation. It's flow rate is high at low to medium hydraulic system pressure.

Type of heavy duty filtration

Standard Pressure Filters

Pressure line or standard hydraulic pressure filters are commonly used in a hydraulic system. It protects your hydraulic components against wear and tear.

Contamination Control

Contamination control is a very important element of a hydraulic filtration system. Changing filter elements on a regular basis prevents clogging and improves oil quality.
