filter element

Nowadays, the importance of reducing and minimizing particle ingression is widely realized. Because particle accumulation will endanger equipment reliability, keep the contamination in an acceptable level is crucial. It’s also important to understand how particles get into machinery and what you can do to decrease or even get rid of ingression. Solid contamination can enter […]

oil filtration efficiency

There are four main facets that will act on oil filtration, namely, the filter media material & structure, the oil’s viscosity, the fluid flow rates and pressure, the working conditions. The Oil’s Viscosity It is widely acknowledged that processing high viscosity oil with fine filter media will be difficult, and since the fluid viscosity varies […]
