What is Hydraulic and Lube Filtration?
For a complete listing of Schroeder Industries’ Hydraulic and Lube Filters, click here.
Hydraulic fluid is often seen as both a lubricant and a power transfer device in hydraulic systems. Having these characteristics means that in order for the hydraulic system to work properly and effectively, the hydraulic fluid must be at its maximum efficiency.
To sustain a hydraulic fluid’s maximum efficiency, its fluid properties (such as viscosity and cleanliness) must be upheld.
Hydraulic filtration can do the job of making sure the oil properties remain at its best. Hydraulic filters help remove contamination from the oil system and clean the fluid on a continuous basis, while also ensuring the oil viscosity properties remain constant.
Generally, a hydraulic filter’s performance is measured by:
- Beta Efficiency – how well a filter can remove contamination
- Beta Stability – how well a filter can maintain its efficiency throughout its life
- Dirt Holding Capacity (DHC) – how much contamination a filter holds
- Lower Pressure Drop – how restricting a filter is on the system

Schroeder Industries’ offers Hydraulic and Lube filter assembly types up to 6,500 psi (448 bar).
Using fluid technology, our hydraulic filter housings are continuously tested using the latest ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and NFPA (National Fluid Power Association) test procedures in our Fluid Care Center (FCC). Extensive testing is conducted to verify rated fatigue and burst pressures and to ensure compatibility with various mineral-based fluids.
