What we need to spec up your hydraulic filter requirements.

The Filter Guys

What we need to spec up your hydraulic filter requirements.

When looking to identify a filter housing for your specific problem we need to know a little bit about what you are trying to achieve and where in your hydraulic circuit you need to fit it. To do this we require a few key pieces of information to ensure correct fit and operation for you. That being:

Port Sizes. What size pipe-work are you fitting the housing into? In many cases this is a BSP measurement.

Operating Pressure. Is the filter operating as a return line, tank top return, pressure or suction filter, or is it simply an in-tank suction strainer?

Flow rate. What is the flow of the hydraulic oil in litres per minute?

Micron. It is important to get the micron rating correct to ensure that you are protecting delicate parts of your hydraulic system further along the flow route from damaging wear particles.

With this information we can then source and supply the correct filter unit. Contact us on 01902 491118 with your hydraulic filter enquiries or contact us via our website Online Enquiry Form.

We can also offer a range of replacement filter elements and housing indicators to help keep you informed when your filters require changing.

Donaldson Duramax ®, well known as the highest rated medium pressure filters available, are most often used in return line positions.

Duramax working pressures range from 25 to 70 bar and static pressures from 55 to 140 bar.

Low pressure filters are the most commonly used type of filters in hydraulic circuits, used most often as return line filters in applications with working pressures up to 10 bar and static pressure up to 20 bar.

An expanded line of accessories for hydraulic lines and reservoirs is also available. Finish off your hydraulic circuit with filter service indicators, pressure gauges, test point assemblies, valves, flanges, reservoir level gauges, sight glasses, a variety of tank and filter breathers, caps vents, plugs, strainers, diffusers, magnets and more.

Filter elements for compressors.

The Filter Guys

Filter elements for compressors.

Pneumatic tools are ineffective if not maintained correctly. Dirt and liquid particles in your compressors air line can cause lengthy and expensive breakdowns or completely destroy your equipment. Regular maintenance is essential to avoid this happening especially at this time of year when cold temperatures can cause freezing of water droplets that may collect in your air lines.

Sterling Filtration Ltd can offer a wide range of filter elements to service your compressor machine needs. We have a wide range of parts available through our extensive supply chain to service machines including, but not limited to, Ingersoll Rand, Zander, Bauer, Hydrovane, Kaeser, Husky and Compair compressors.

We supply 1, 0.1 and 0.01 micron filter elements for inline compressed air use as well as being able to offer the complete assemblies too. We also stock air, oil and fuel filters for large compressor engines as well as air/oil separators for many applications.

Remember it is cost effective to regularly service your filter elements than not service your equipment. A strict maintenance procedure can stop a problem before it starts.

Worried About Water in Your Air Intake System?

The Filter Guys

Worried About Water in Your Air Intake System?

Sometimes you can’t help operating equipment in extreme moisture environments especially during the spring when the weather is unpredictable, but it’s good to be mindful of a few things to help keep your air intake system running at top efficiency.

Typical Symptoms of Water Ingestion:

  • High Restriction indications.
  • Mud caked in the VacValve
  • Wet, wavy air filter media
  • System rust, corrosion and/or water damage
  • Moisture-related environmental problems such as icing

Simple Tips to Keep Water Out of Your System:

  • Check and clear the VacValve daily
  • Make sure the air cleaner cover and filter are installed properly
  • Inspect air intake system for any leaks

Remember, a water-soaked air filter will occasionally lock-up a restriction indicator. Wet filters should always be replaced as they are prone to tear at weak, wet spots on the media. This would then allow the air flow to bypass the filter allowing dirt and debris into your air intake.

A restriction indicators ‘lock-up” restriction level is generally marked on the indicator itself. To check an indicator, remove it, wipe the base clean, then apply a small amount of vacuum. If the indicator locks up, it should still be okay to reuse this way. If not be sure to replace the indicator.

Donaldson Air cleaner assemblies and accessories are available to buy from Sterling Filtration Ltd.
