HYDAC filtration, fluid conditioning and fluid monitoring

Perfect component protection thanks to extensive application experience

Our filters and filter systems support oil and fluid conditioning, which helps to make your system run safely and efficiently.

When it comes to filtration technology, HYDAC is a market pioneer. For decades, our product range has included efficient and safe filtration solutions for hydraulic and lubrication oil, water, fuel, coolants and other processing fluids. From powerful hydraulic and lubrication oil filters to fuel filters and process filters, the extensive product portfolio includes efficient fluid conditioning systems and smart solutions for fluid conditioning monitoring that analyse fluids and also define measures for increasing the productivity of machinery and reducing fluid consumption. The high-quality filtration products are always developed with the customer in mind and enable efficient and reliable system operation.

An overview of HYDAC filtration technology – the right filtration concept for any application

HYDAC supplies laboratory-based technologies and innovations that have been put to the test in practice within a broad filter range for liquid and gaseous media. All filtration products are made to very high quality and reliably increase the service life of components, systems and machinery. They are the reason why HYDAC’s high-quality filtration technology has been able to establish itself in a wide range of industries and applications over the last decades. In the HYDAC FluidCareCenter®, the research and development centre for filtration, HYDAC focuses on specific market trends and customer requirements. As a result, innovative products are constantly being created, such as HYDAC Stat-X® filter elements that prevent electrostatic charging in the system or even entire filter-tank systems with elevated degassing power (Tank optimisation).

The product range of HYDAC hydraulic and lubrication filters covers a broad array of filter variants. HYDAC supplies numerous filters as inline filters, tank-mounted filters or flange-mounted filters. From high-, medium- and low-pressure filters and return and suction line filters to return line suction filters as a combined filter design, a broad range of operating pressures is covered. Depending on the application and the specific requirements, the filters are equipped with various filter media and clogging indicators to ensure maximum system safety. HYDAC is thus able to serve a great variety of applications and industries and equip entire hydraulic and lubrication systems with filters. Finally, even complete filter and plastic tank systems are included in our comprehensive product portfolio.

For HYDAC, the topic of fluid conditioning covers the varied range of fluid service products and services as well as the closely related fields of fluid monitoring and technical cleanliness. This portfolio is able to serve an extensive range of industries, helping them to increase oil quality, extend service intervals and save costs. The enormous product portfolio includes a large number of measurement and analysis systems like laboratory equipment and component analysis devices and various fluid conditioning systems such as mobile and stationary filter systems. For the many filters in the product range, there are different types of filter element for removing particles, fluids as well as oil ageing products (varnish), depending on the particular field of application.

For process filtration, HYDAC supplies filters and filter elements for low- to high-viscosity process media, such as water, ballast and scrubber water, gas, coolants and cleaning fluids, heavy oil and polymer melt. The product range includes automatic filters (AutoFilt®), inline and screen basket filters, gas filters as particle or coalescence filters and Betterfit filter elements. On top of this, our product range also includes complete skid and system solutions, for example those for high-pressure coolant supply or for dealing with high flow rates. Both reusable and thus low-waste filter materials and robust disposable materials with high-quality filter layer structures are used here.

Because of the large number of applications for HYDAC filters, different powerful filter elements configured for the particular application are constantly being created, with optimum contamination retention capacity and long service lives. This makes it possible for HYDAC to supply technically and economically optimised and sustainable filter elements for hydraulic and lubrication filters, diesel fuel filters and process filters, for any application and any industry. In the HYDAC FluidCareCenter®, the innovative filter elements are regularly tested and validated to HYDAC quality standards.

Because of the very strict requirements that apply, diesel fuel must be prepared reliably at all times and at every station in the supply chain – from the production in the refinery all the way to the consumer. To adhere to the high requirements of quality, and thus prevent premature wear and loss of efficiency, especially in common rail injection systems, monitoring and separation of particle contamination and water is indispensable. The HYDAC product range therefore includes corresponding filters, fuel polishing units and sensors. For each step from the refinery to the filling station / in the engine directly, HYDAC supplies specific products for reliably safe fluid monitoring and conditioning. The on-board products like diesel pre-filters and diesel main filters, including those with automatic dewatering, are complemented by products for high flow rates for transport between different handling and storage facilities, filling stations and vehicles.
