Filtek Centrifuges greatly aid in this pursuit and are excellent in removing carbon soot to sub micron level.
We have recently introduced Hydraulic Filtration Skids which will provide NAS 7 cleanliness and better in just 3 passes of the oil volume through our microglass elements. The Skids powered by a pump+motor are compact, portable and have the advantage of moisture and ferrous particle removal from hydraulic oils. A flow rate of 5 LPM provides quick cleaning of the oil tank. Specific systems can be manufactured for special applications.
