What exactly is hydraulic filtration?

Graphic featuring images of a backhoe's hydraulic system and a hydraulic filtration element

Anyone involved in the industrial field has likely come across the term “hydraulic filtration” before. But, what is it?

Hydraulic systems and machinery operate by applying pressure to dense fluids or oils, called hydraulic fluid, in order to transfer mechanical energy to other components within the system. Some examples of equipment that utilizes hydraulics include heavy machinery like backhoes and cranes, vehicle braking systems, and even theme park rides.

Did you know that over 70% of hydraulic system failures are due to contaminated hydraulic fluid?

However, hydraulic fluid is at risk of contamination. Particles that are smaller than what is visible to the human eye are able to sneak into a hydraulic system and cause damage to internal components, leading to expensive repairs. Over 70% of all system failures are caused by contaminants in the hydraulic fluid. Even when no immediate failures are apparent, high contamination levels can be present and sharply decrease hydraulic controls in the blink of an eye.

Types of Contamination

Contamination can come from two basic sources. It either enters the system from outside (ingestion) or are generated from within (ingression). Types of contamination include:

  • Air
  • Water
  • Microbial Growth (Yes, microbes can grow in hydraulic fluid!)
  • Varnish, which can be caused by degraded oil
  • Particulates, including ingested dirt or degraded particles from internal system wear

Contamination Control Through Hydraulic Filtration

Contamination cannot be completely stopped, but it can be managed. Hydraulic filtration is what “cleans” contamination from the operating fluid in equipment. Specially designed hydraulic filters are used for removing contaminants from fluids and safely disposing of them without causing harm to the equipment.

Contamination control through filtration is what will keep equipment running better, for longer, and with fewer maintenance updates.

Types of Hydraulic Filters and Systems

There are several types of hydraulic filters based on their position within the system. The filter housings, which are engineered for a variety of pressure ratings, contain a filter element which absorbs contaminates and is switched out when full. Multiple types of filter may be used depending on factors like component sensitivity or great amounts of ambient contamination.

In-Line Filtration

An in-line filter is a filter unit which is plumbed directly into the hydraulic system. These filters operate when the hydraulic machine is active, filtering the hydraulic fluid as the system is in operation and protecting the hydraulic pump and other vital components from contaminate wear.

There are a variety of in-line filters designed to function at various points in a system, such as the hydraulic fluid reservoir and return lines. They come in two basic forms: spin on filters and cartridge filters.

Examples of hydraulic cartridge filter and spin on filter
  • Cartridge Filters include three separate components: the head (which attaches directly to the system), the filter element (which traps contaminates and filters the fluid), and the cartridge bowl (which threads onto the head and contains the filter element). When the filter is full, only the filter element is discarded and replaced. Cartridge filters can be more challenging to change, and are subject to possible damage and wear in the process, but are overall more cost efficient and less wasteful than spin on filters.
  • Spin On Filters combine the cartridge bowl and filter element into a single unit. This unit is screwed onto the hydraulic system, and when full, the entire unit is removed, disposed of, and replaced. While spin on filters are very easy and convenient to switch out compared to cartridge filters, they result in much more more waste when thrown away.

Offline Filtration

Example of a hydraulic filter cart, a type of offline filtration unit

While in-line filters are more typical, stand-alone units that operate offline and away from the hydraulic application are also effective in contamination control. Offline filter systems, such as hydraulic filter carts, are commonly used to enhance the in-line filtration and are not meant as replacements.

Their main advantage over an in-line filtration system is that they can be used even when the hydraulic equipment is not active. Equipped with a pump-motor group of their own, offline oil conditioning units do not require the power of a hydraulic machine. They are their own independent system.

Oil conditioning units are typically used for the conditioning of stored fluid, fluid dispensing applications and transferring processes. It is basically summed up that everywhere the fluid is not flowing through a system, it should be accompanied by a hydraulic filter cart.

Filter Elements

Example of a Schroeder Industries hydraulic filtration element

Filter elements are the heart and soul of every hydraulic fluid filtration system. Depending on the type of contamination affecting a system, there is a wide variety of filter elements engineered for various filtration challenges.

Elements can be manufactured to filter various particulate sizes, capture water, and even reduce static charges that can build up in the hydraulic fluid. For clean fluid, choosing a high quality filter element is one of the most important considerations.

What is Process Filtration?

Process filtration is a major focal point of what we do at Schroeder Industries.

The filtration process is commonly used to remove contamination and solid particles from gas-solid or liquid-solid process streams.

Additionally, there are filtration solutions to improve one’s operating water quality. This includes:

  • Process water
  • Waste water
  • River water
  • Cooling towers
  • Backwash
  • Industrial gases
  • Low-viscosity fluids
  • And all other types of oil, fuel, water, and compressed gases

We’ve even coined the phrase “if it flows, it’s probably Schroeder”.

Trust the Experts of Process Filtration

Proper filtration in treatment processes such as process water, wastewater discharge, or reuse is critical.

Moving liquids or gases from somewhere like a refinery, food/beverage, steel, automotive, pulp and paper or oil produced water application requires pre-filtration due to high amounts of suspended solids in these typical applications.

In fact, there are usually several filtration and treatment steps in these applications to ensure that the treated water meets the required discharge or reuse standard.

In addition, filtration in treatment schemes ensures reduced operating cost on downstream polishing treatment systems.

Schroeder Industries Focuses on Your Process, Delivery Reliability and Improvements

Schroeder Industries will optimize your filtration solution based on the specific characteristics of your system, including the water source, specific application, and downstream equipment.

Poor filtration can cause a degradation of your final product or failure of downstream equipment. This can cost hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars in downtime or wasted product.

Schroeder Industries is here to partner with you to ensure reduced maintenance and high quality filtration designed specifically for your application.

The most important aspects of the application of filtration process include:

  • Performance
  • Efficiency
  • System parameters
  • Stable emulsions
  • Water intake
  • Economic impact

For instance, a very important step in a membrane treatment plant in the United States is the pretreatment of fluid to remove large particulate and biologicals.

If unmanaged, poor prefiltration can result in:

  • Increased maintenance costs
  • Increased energy consumption
  • Damaged components (like a pump or heat exchanger)
  • Reduced service times

Schroeder’s Powerful Technology for Oil Conditioning

Graphic with to link to the fluid filtration systems & diagnostic catalog

What is a Fluid Filtration System?

A fluid filtration system is exactly what it sounds like. These systems are designed to ensure the quality of your fluid is excellent.

With a typical hydraulic application, the hydraulic filter is normally plumbed in-line with the system (or buried in-line with a hydraulic tank) and serves as an oil conditioning unit when the system is in operation.

Graphic detailing the differences between a typical hydraulic filter and a fluid filtration system

A fluid filtration system, or oil conditioning unit, is a stand-alone unit that operates offline and away from the hydraulic application. Often times in the form of a hydraulic filter cart, it is not to replace any piece of equipment, but to enhance the maintenance team.

Equipped with a pump-motor group of its own, these do not require the power of a hydraulic machine. They are their own system.

Oil conditioning units are typically used for the conditioning of stored fluid, fluid dispensing applications and transferring processes. It is basically summed up that everywhere the fluid is not flowing through a system, it should be accompanied by a hydraulic filter cart.

What is meant by “Oil Conditioning”?

With the turn to tighter tolerances in today’s hydraulic critical assets systems, line conditioning equipment is critical.

Typographic image which reads: In hydraulic systems, 70-90% of wear and failure is contamination related.

What do we mean when we say “Oil Conditioning”? 

Oil Conditioning is using fluid conditioning products, such as offline oil filtration and dehydration systems, to remove contaminates and increase the moisture removal rate in your hydraulic fluid.  Removal of the contaminates and the total moisture allows the system to operate to its fullest potential. Contamination is a leading cause of hydraulic repairs and replacements, and accounts for 70 to 90% of wear and failure.

Whether your machine is new or many years old, the cleaner the oil, the better the operating condition.

When contaminants enter a hydraulic system, the manufacturer’s advertised performance of that machine is not achieved.

This adds an increased strain on components such as turbine oil filters, other line conditioning equipment, and more.

Today’s oil conditioning units have seen a shift from “Reactionary” (fix it when it breaks) to “Preventative” (fix it before it breaks), and even “Predictive” (schedule downtime to perform maintenance).

Schroeder Industries offers a wide ranging selection of fluid filtration products and systems to suit your oil conditioning needs

What are Diagnostics Tools?

Similar to a diagnostic OBD II scanner you have for your car, diagnostic tools are the equipment that can recognize and support a “Preventative” maintenance plan.

Bring that into the world of hydraulics and you get equipment similar to the OBD scanner mentioned above.

Only this time, these diagnostics read and report in the form of mineral oil cleanliness.

Watch on YouTube “Diagnostics (IoT)” Playlist.

What do Diagnostics Tools have to do with Oil Conditioning Units?

When you pair the elite technology found in today’s oil conditioning units with the new-age of the Internet of Things (IoT) technology in most diagnostic tools on the market today, you really step into the future in a real effort of streamlining tedious oil sampling/reporting tasks in a complete system.

The two technologies together are what we like to call proactive “Contamination Control” – taking ownership and managing the fluids you pump into your hydraulic systems day-in and day-out.

“Contamination Control” pertains to the ISO clean analysis and optimization of processes with regard to the cleanliness of components, systems and the purity of the fluids used.

“Contamination Control” is also an important part of operating and maintaining hydraulic systems, like a hydraulic filter cart.

How can Schroeder Industries help?

It starts with the identification and measurement of the different forms of contamination.

Our line of condition monitoring products include both in-line and offline sensors to measure contamination and/or total moisture levels of the hydraulic system.

If the contamination levels are at a certain degree, our end users have seen dramatically frequent equipment failure.

If monitoring is the first step, fluid conditioning products would be the second.

Our line of offline, mobile fluid handling carts are perfect for removing contaminants and increasing overall moisture removal rate from various types of hydraulic fluids.

Oil conditioning units include both mobile fluid handling carts with or without contamination monitoring units, stationary fluid conditioning products from 1.3 gpm flow rates to customizable kidney loop systems up to 140 gpm.

Each of our hydraulic filtration systems are equipped with high efficiency elements to remove solid particulates and/or free water quickly and efficiently.

Our dewatering units, both hydraulic vacuum oil dehydration and mass transfer systems, can remove both free and dissolved water from hydraulic fluids for any reservoir size at various flow rates.

Watch on YouTube “Filter Systems” Playlist.

By implementing fluid condition monitoring equipment, in conjunction with the appropriate filtration equipment, a major portion of particulate contamination introduced during manufacturing and assembly can be effectively and efficiently removed.

The result will be improved fluid condition, extended life expectancy of fluid and equipment resulting in significant cost savings, and peace of mind that your systems are functioning appropriately and efficiently.

What is a Hydraulic Filter Element?

Filter elements are the heart and soul of every high pressure fluid power system. The main job of hydraulic filtration is to clean hydraulic fluid. This is achieved by removing impurities and contaminants in the system.

They are also used to ensure that contaminants do not interfere with the hydraulic machine’s main operating functionality. Such as maximizing efficiency and offering low energy consumption.

When a hydraulic oil filter removes those contaminants from a hydraulic system, an increase in the fluid’s cleanliness level is achieved. This results in the reduction of machine downtime and maintenance costs. A hydraulic oil filter also increases hydraulic fluid and component life, such as hydraulic pumps, hydraulic motors, etc..

Far too often, customers make purchasing decisions based solely on price, only to be extremely disappointed with the poor quality delivered by low cost imitations.  To make matters worse, the customer often criticizes the filter housing manufacturer for poor performance, rather than the inadequate element they used as a replacement for the original Schroeder element. This is where Quality Protection comes in, and Schroeder Industries offers different Quality Protected designs for your needs.
GeoSeal® is a patented offering that provides a unique way for OEM’s to retain replacement element business and keep a filter’s performance at the quality level that it was originally supplied.  The idea is brilliantly simple: the critical sealing arrangement between a filter housing and its replacement element takes on a shape other than the standard circular arrangement. Specifically, the element grommet & mating bushing are given a new geometric shape.
DirtCatcher® offers a superior alternative to inside-out filtration. The patented outer shell prevents contaminants from falling back into the system during element changes while still providing the excellent dirt retention of Excellement® media.  The DirtCatcher® solution provides peace of mind to those concerned with dirt escaping from elements during the removal process while delivering all the advantages of Schroeder original (outside-in flow) elements.

Use of Non-Schroeder Elements in Schroeder Filter Housings:

Due to the possibility of a fit, form, and function error, Schroeder Industries does not recommend nor
guarantee that a non-Schroeder filter element can be used properly in a standard Schroeder filter housing. Other businesses have filter elements that are not controlled by Schroeder, which may cause decreased performance and system downtime.

Filter element image with warning symbol
Potential Effects of Using Non-Schroeder Elements:
  • Increased and Uncontrolled ISO Counts
  • Lower Beta Efficiencies
  • Uncontrolled Contamination Introduced in System
  • Lower Dirt Holding Capacities
  • Dissimilar Component Material from Original Specifications
  • Material Issues Mixing with Hydraulic Fluid
  • Premature System Component Failures
  • Uncontrolled System Downtime

How can I tell if my hydraulic filter is working?

Genuinely, a filter element’s performance can be measured. Such factors to watch include:

  • Beta Efficiency – how well it can remove contamination through fluid conditioning
  • Beta Stability – how well it can maintain its efficiency throughout its life
  • Dirt Holding Capacity (DHC) – how much contamination it can hold
  • Lower Pressure Drop – how restricting it is on the hydraulic system
