In today’s modern world of small tolerances in the manufacture of hydraulic components, filtration is critical.

It is important to select and install the correct filtration package on any hydraulic system.
  • Pressure filters
  • Return line filters
  • Breathers
  • Suction strainers
Manufacturers supply and recommend cleanliness classifications for their hydraulic components.

ISO and NAS is the known standard, FluidTech use an on line particle counter to help customers determine the condition of their oil.

It is generally accepted that at least 80% to 90% of failures in a hydraulic system can be attributed to contamination. Filtration is an important protection method for hydraulics and to maintain the optimum performance and reliability of any machine or power unit.

The two main contaminants are:
  • Solid particles
  • Water
By reducing the contamination and keeping cleanliness classifications as per manufacturers specifications, the benefits include:
  • Extended component life
  • Enhanced system reliability
  • Reduced downtime
  • Reduced service costs
  • Safety of operation
  • Extended fluid life
At FluidTech we have helped and improved many hydraulic systems in regards to contamination control and the installation of filtration.
