Types of Media Used with Hydraulic Filter Elements

Posted by Filter Element Store on

We offer thousands of different hydraulic filter elements for hundreds of different filter manufacturers. Our filter replacements utilize a wide range of top quality filtering media such as:

MicroGlass

A synthetic material made from inorganic glass fiber providing extremely consistent and defined performance for critical applications.

Referred to as "Absolute", with verifiable efficiency ratings up to a Beta 200 (99.5%) and Beta 1,000 (99.9%). Excellent removal and high dirt-holding capacity gives MicroGlass an outstanding price/performance ratio.

Polyester

A blend of organic and inorganic fiber providing lower flow resistance, greater dirt holding, and a broader fluid compatibility than Cellulose media.

Referred to as "Nominal", with stated removal ratings commonly in the Beta 25 (96%) to Beta 50 (98%) range.

Cellulose (Paper)

Made from processed wood fibres combined with chemicals and resins providing good flow rates and dirt-holding capacity.

Referred to as "Nominal", with stated removal ratings commonly in the Beta 2 (50%) range. Not suitable for water-based fluids.

Wire Mesh

Most commonly made from Stainless Steel, Galvanised Steel, and Brass in varying structures including Woven, Dutch, Twilled, and Silk.

Available in micron sizes from 10 to 1,000, with varying Beta ratings depending on the chosen structure. The open pore, single layer construction, offers low flow resistance and limited cleaning ability. Extremely durable, with excellent chemical and thermal resistance, but at an increased price.

Metal Fiber

Metal fibers sintered to provide a depth loading structure.

Referred to as "Absolute", with verifiable efficiency ratings up to a Beta 200 (99.5%).Low flow resistance and high dirt-loading capacity, with excellent chemical and thermal resistance, limited cleaning ability but comparatively high priced.

Water Removal

Can be used with Cellulose, MicroGlass, and Polyester to remove water from oils.
