What are Hand-Held Hydraulic Filter Units?
Hand-held filtration systems are compact, self-contained, “light-viscosity”, industrial separation systems.
With over 70% of all premature system failures being attributed to hydraulic and water source contamination, it is critical to implement the finest portable oil filter machine to all phases of a hydraulic circuit. That includes the flushing, transferring, and filling processes. The flexibility of portable filtration makes addressing filtration across these different phases easy.
Filter carts are are a convenient mobile alternative to stationary units, but hand-held units take this a step further. Portable filter units utilize the same filtration technologies most commonly found in full-size filtration cart systems, but offered in a portable size, similar to a Black & Decker Hand Vacuum. Often times, at least in our case, these units are sold with high efficiency, high capacity liquid pressure filter elements capable of removing particulate contamination and/or water quickly, conveniently and economically from the hydraulic fluid.
Hand-held filter elements are especially critical to the operating system pressure lines since new fluids often have contamination levels significantly higher than the recommended amount in most hydraulic systems. These units are small enough for use as drum or tank top filtration for cleaning up existing systems as well as the pre-filtration of new fluids.
Why Schroeder Industries?
As the markets that uses hydraulic components become more dynamic, they are now more dependent on the highest quality filtration, separation, and reservoir accessories available.
Our hand-held systems are the premier offline, portable filtration systems for maintaining oil water separation and mineral-based fluid conditioning in the market.
Which Schroeder Industries portable filtration unit is right for your needs?
With two (2) product offerings available, each with a proven track-record, our solutions are the industry go-to for affordable and easy-to-use filtration:
Since both hand held filter offerings from Schroeder Industries are light-weight and extremely portable, they can be used throughout the plant or in service vehicles that use high viscosity fluids. Several application examples include:
- Supplementing continuous liquid filtration by system filters.
- Cleaning up hydraulic systems following a component replacement.
- Filtering new fluid before it is put into service.
- Transferring fluid from drums to system reservoirs.
