Filtration Systems : Hydraulic Filtration System

A hydraulic filtration system is used to capture and contain dirt and other particles in hydraulic fluid or other lubricants. Filtering out these particles is necessary to protecting the various components in the system and ensuring long life. Contamination in the system can come from particles in the hydraulic fluid, debris generated due to mechanical wear in the system, environmental contamination, or particles accidentally deposited in the system during installation and maintenance cycles.
