    Hydraulic & Lube Filtration

    • A comprehensive range of hydraulic filter housing technologies, equipped with high-quality filter element materials ensure high operating safety and long maintenance intervals.
    • High Pressure Filters up to 6500psi (450bar): Systems with high pressure flows may only need to be sized to match the output of the pump, where the return line may require a much larger filter for the higher flows. Schroeder products range from: Top-Ported, Base-Ported, Servo Protection (Sandwich) Filters, Manifold Mounted and Manifold Assemblies, Cartridge Elements for use in Manifold Applications, Hydrostatic (Bi-Directional) and High Pressure Water Service Filters.
    • Medium Pressure Filters up to 1500psi (100bar): Large rod cylinders and other components can cause return line flows to be much greater than pump output. Return lines can have substantial pressure surges, which need to be taken into consideration when selecting filters and their locations. Schroeder products range from: Top-Ported, Base Ported and Medium Pressure Water Service Filters.
    • Low Pressure Filters up to up to 500 psi (35 bar): Schroeder’s integrated filter line of products range from: Top-Ported, Tank-Mounted (In-Tank/Tank Top), Special Feature Tank-Mounted Filters, Severe Duty Tank-Mounted, Spin-On Low Pressure Filters, and Low Pressure Water Service Filters.
    • Brand​ing Capabilities and or Patented Schroeder GeoSeal® Technologies: Ensure availability of spare parts, branding the filter housing for improvement of product identification.

    Filter Systems

    • TestMate® Series: Schroeder offers a variety of particle counters in our Filter Systems product line. Some can be integrated in-line into an existing hydraulic system to monitor contamination levels in real time (TCM, TIM, SMART kits). Others can be utilized as a portable service unit for temporary monitoring. All feature the ability to download measurements for further processing.
    • Off-Line Systems: Schroeder offers a variety of self-contained filtration systems equipped with high efficiency elements to remove solid particulates and/or water quickly and efficiently. These off-line systems can be used to supplement inline filters when adequate fluid cleanliness is not being achieved. Various model options include wheels, particle monitors, and sophisticated PLC’s.

    Fuel Filtration

    • Advanced Diesel Filtration: Because many people assume they’re buying quality fuel that meets the required specifications, diesel fuel cleanliness is seldom questioned. But higher fuel system operating pressures, lower system tolerances, tighter filtration and the ultra-low sulfur requirements have pushed fuel cleanliness into the maintenance spotlight.Engine manufacturers are realizing that diesel fuel cleanliness can have great impact on overall engine performance. In fact, many are now recommending that diesel fuel that does not meet an ISO Cleanliness Code of 18/16/13 should be filtered before introduction to the fuel system.Injector manufacturers are mandating an ISO cleanliness code of 13/9/6 with water content levels at less than 200 ppm.
    • Bulk Fuel Filtration: Coalescing filtration, a highly effective method to remove water from diesel fuels. Water is typically introduced into the fuel supply by condensation. Water in a vehicle fuel system can reduce lubricity causing seizure of close tolerance parts and increased wear. Water in fuel storage tanks causes rust and promotes microbial growth. Schroeder offers a complete line of bulk fuel coalescing filters from 16 GPM up. we invite you to review your needs against the high performance filter line we can provide.

    Element Technology

    • Excellent ® Z-Media®​ Elements: This class of micro-glass and other fibers used in Z-Media® are manufactured with the utmost precision, to specific thicknesses and densities, and bonded with select resins to create material with extra fine passages. Schroeder’s Excellement® Z-Media®: maximum dirt-holding capacity, superior particle capture, excellent beta stability, minimum pressure drop, high flow rate and low operating cost.
    • E – Media Elements (Cellulose): Recognized as one of the industry’s most cost effective media available in the marketplace, Schroeder E media is an excellent choice for a wide variety of hydraulic system applications.


    • Desiccant Filter Breather: The Schroeder desiccant air breathers are designed to increase operational efficiency while reducing operating costs by protecting industrial systems from moisture and particle contaminants.
    • Suction Strainers: The all metal suction strainers are furnished with optimized pleat size and screen area for extended life and low pressure drop. 100 mesh stainless steel screen (140 micron) has 33.3% open area. Porting head is carbon steel, center core is plated perforated steel. End cap is heavy gauge zinc plated steel. These strainers can handle temperatures up to 250°F (121°C).
