Spin-on Filters
Different types of low pressure filters

What is a Spin-on Filter and Why do you Need it?

A spin-on filter is a low pressure hydraulic filter that is used as suction filter or to filter the return-line of the hydraulic circuit. Spin-on filters are easy to service due to the disposable filter cans which can be replaced by a replacement element completely.

Spin-on filters with disposable filter cans are not the most environmental friendly solution though. Every year over 500 million spin-on cans are disposed of in North American landfills only. This implies a waste of over 30 million gallons of residual oil and over 250 tons of scrap metal.
