Introducing the latest in Schroeder Industries’ line of powerful in-tank filters!

Using the same cutting edge technology as the Schroeder AFT, the new AFTF provides all the best qualities of Air Fusion Technology with stabilized, fixed-head porting.

Air contamination can be devastating within a hydraulic system, so having an in-tank filter that specializes in advanced deaeration can prevent substantial downtime, repairs, operational inefficiency, and more!

AFTF Benefits and Specifications

Here’s just some of what makes the AFTF one of the most powerful deaerating in-tank hydraulic filters available:

  • Exceptional deaeration capabilities. Air Fusion Technology reduces fluid velocity and encourages bubble coalescence for substantially more effecting deaeration than other in-tank filters currently available.
  • Fixed head allows for a breather attachment. The stabilized porting allows the addition of an external breather, further increasing the deaeration potential.
  • Provides filtration even in bypass. The specialized bypass valve in the head of the filter allows the filter to function even while in bypass for greater filtration efficiency.
  • Potential for reservoir downsizing. The deaeration of the Air Fusion Technology is so efficient that it may be possible to downsize your hydraulic reservoir by up to 60%!
