Your experienced partner for components and systems of the pulp and paper industry

Paper manufacture

High-quality paper manufacture calls for maximum machine availability. We achieve this with efficient fluid filtration and cooling in our hydraulic, lubrication and water systems – while saving you maintenance and operating costs. At the same time, we use our expertise to advance your company with regard to the conservation of resources, sustainability and process reliability with innovative HYDAC solutions.

Pulp manufacture

Pulp, as the main component of paper manufacture, is itself obtained using a complex procedure – any malfunction in the production steps can bring the entire process to a standstill. HYDAC supplies a wide range of hydraulic and lubricating systems, components for water treatment, measuring sensors and oil service – to increase and maintain your system availability.

Sustainability & conservation of resources

Manufacturing 1 kg of paper from wood still requires roughly 500 L water. Sustainable approaches to production that conserve resources are topics that are crucial for the paper industry’s future. HYDAC supplies intelligent technologies in components that you can use to reliably save fresh water and close water cycles effectively.

Sustainability in pulp and paper production: our product solutions

HYDAC filter technology Air-X

HYDAC innovation for the filtration of hydraulic and lubrication oils in paper machines: with the Air-X filter, tank volumes can be reduced by up to 40%. In addition to saving space, you can also efficiently save CO2.


HYDAC back-flushing filter AutoFilt® RF3

The self-cleaning automatic filter AutoFilt® RF3 with conical filter elements ensures maximum efficiency during filtration and the highest possible effectiveness in back-flushing. Benefit from the many advantages of our sustainable filter technology.


HYDAC AutoFilt® TwistFlow Strainer

Efficient and service-friendly – our TwistFlow Strainer is suitable for severe fluctuations in the quality of your untreated water. The constant filtrate quality ensures continuous filtration operation. Find out about our sustainable solutions.


HYDAC tank solution OXiStop

The HYDAC OXiStop tank solution typically results in oil volumes that are one tenth the size and reduces dirt ingress and the gas content inside the tank. Increase your oil service lives over the long term with our innovative technology.


HYDAC clogging indicator VFL

To ensure that an element’s service life is utilised to the full, our Virtual Fluid Lab visualises the remaining service life for your filter elements. Our decades of experience in filtration make it possible. Lower your life cycle cost in the long term thanks to our intelligent algorithm.
