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.

Hydraulic Filtration Systems and accessories.

Donaldson develops, manufactures and markets a full line of hydraulic filters for the protection of machinery and components in hundreds of applications on heavy duty mobile equipment. When you need high, medium or low pressure filters, filter housings, filter heads, replacement cartridges, spin-ons or hydraulic accessories, turn to Sterling Filtration, authorised distributors of Donaldson filters. We also offer a broad line of replacement filter elements.

Donaldson heavy duty high pressure filters sit behind pumps and other prime movers to protect critical hydraulic components such as cylinders, motors and valves. All contain our Synteq ® synthetic filter media, specially developed by Donaldson for high efficiency liquid filtration. Working pressures range from 140 to 420 bar and static pressures from 310 to 830 bar.

Donaldson Duramax ®, well known as the highest rated medium pressure filters available, are most often used in return line positions. As spin-ons, they are particularly well-suited for the duplex circuits. Donaldson Synteq ® and cellulose media are available. 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.

Donaldson is proud to offer a broad selection of hydraulic replacement cartridges and spin-ons to the aftermarket via its distributors. Choose from our many different filter media to find exactly the right filter to help you meet the cleanliness requirements for your hydraulic system.

Duralite Air Cleaners

The Filter Guys

ECB, ECC Duralite Air Cleaners. 

The Duralite Air Cleaners are disposable, one-stage, dry air cleaners. They are used on light-duty applications like air compressors, pumps, material handling equipment, propulsion units, breathers, welders, generator sets, lawn vehicles, recreation vehicles and many more. Ideal for high pulsating small engines. They are tough, non-metallic, lightweight, self supporting and completely disposable. They are easy to install, durable, and reliable. They are designed to function well under high and severe pulsation conditions found in many applications, especially two and three cylinder engines. Vibration-resistant media is potted into molded housings of rugged ABS plastic so they don’t fall apart as other designs might.

Filtration for Rail Applications.

The Filter Guys

Sterling Filtration is original equipment makers for the rail industry. We have supplied various types of metal air filter elements for passenger trains used through out the UK. We manufacture and supply various metal panels that filter the air that’s used to cool the transformer radiators via the vehicles bypass shutters. These metal panel filters have other applications too. They can be used on the power pack air intakes collecting dirt and grease and in the ceiling intakes which are used to control the intake of larger debris such as snow and leaves.

The panel filters reduce impressively the amount of maintenance down time, keeping the inside of the train carriage much cleaner reducing scheduled cleaning times.

If you have any rail filter requirements please give us a call on 01902 491118 today.
