What is Quality Protection?

Far to 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 the matter worse, the customer often points an accusing finger at the filter housing manufacturer for poor performance, rather than the inadequate element they used as a replacement. That is where Quality Protection is the answer

Quality Protection Means:

  • End users cannot use “will-fit”, low quality elements
  • OEM’s will capture aftermarket revenue; exponential growth year over year
  • Increase in machine productivity and reliability
  • Overall reduction in warranty claims
  • Peace of Mind!

If you’ve ever experienced downtime with your hydraulic equipment, you know how costly and frustrating it can be. Just because you have a filter in place, it doesn’t mean that you are capturing the particulate that prevents your equipment from performing at the level it should be at. Cut-rate imitations may claim that “All filtration elements are guaranteed to meet or surpass all specifications of the original equipment manufacturer” but that’s not always the case.

Why do my end users need Quality Protection?

Hydraulic system downtime and repairs represent a significant portion of overall costs to end users. As much as 70% of all premature machine failures can be attributed to contamination (ref. NORIA Corp.). Adding in superior filtration to your end user’s hydraulic system will help prevent premature machine failures and keep uncontrolled contamination effects from occurring. Here is a graph that shows the average percentage of costs per uncontrolled contamination effect versus the cost of superior filtration:
