Filtration of hydraulic fluids, lubricants, industrial liquids and gases.


Special star pleated media filter, mounted on a perforated support tube. It is glued with a 2-component adhesive in a longitudinal direction and with metal end-caps.
Sealed with O-ring or profile seal.

Filtration grade and achievable oil cleanliness code

Besides the direct protection of machine components, the most important target when using an industrial filter is to achieve oil cleanliness. This is defined by oil cleanliness codes which classify the particle size distribu- tion of the existing contamination.

Filtration ratio βx

The filtration ratio βx represents the most important filter efficiency cha- racteristic for a hydraulic filter. The average value during initial and final test Δp is measured by the multi pass test method according to ISO 16889, using ISOMTD test dust contaminant. It is defined as the ratio of particles upstream divided by the particles downstream larger than the size of interest.

Previously, the β – ratio was measured according to the multi pass test as per ISO 4572. The test results from ISO 4572 are not directly compa- rable to those of ISO 16889. Further information about the β – ratio cha- racteristic is given in our technical documentations.

Dirt Holding Capacity

This is also measured using the Multipass test and gives the amount of test dust ACFTD or ISOMTD that the filter media can retain until a definite increase in pressure is reached.
Compared to the conventional filter material, the EPE material displays superior dirt holding capacity, due to its two separate filter layers.

Δp (Pressure Drop)

The sizing of the EPE filter and filter element by means of the initial Δp or pressure drop can be easily carried out with the filter data sheet.

Filter Element Test

EPE Filter elements are tested at our own test benches in accordance with various ISO test standards.
