Press Release Summary:
Offered in 5, 10, and 20 micron ratings, hydraulic filter media reduces pressure drop without compromising other filter performance metrics. Differential pressure means hydraulic systems do not need to divert energy to push fluid through highly resistant filter. For 10 micron version, resistance measurement is 3.5 mm of water at 5.3 cm/sec flow. Media can be used either to produce product with lower delta pressure or reduce size of filter and maintain equivalent performance.

H&V Introduces Energy-Saving Hydraulic Filter Media with 50% Reduction in Pressure Drop
EAST WALPOLE, MASSACHUSETTS, U.S.A. - Hollingsworth & Vose (H&V) has introduced a new family of energy-saving hydraulic filter media products that provides a 50% reduction in pressure drop without compromising other filter performance metrics.
"The hydraulic system on most construction and off-highway equipment is the largest consumer of energy. Rising fuel costs, plus new fuel economy regulations, have magnified the fluid power engineer's focus on system efficiency," said Andrew Shepard, Director, Global Market Management, H&V's Engine and Industrial Filtration business unit. "Our filter media's remarkable reduction in fluid flow restriction permits customers to cut overall system energy requirements. At the same time, it lowers the total cost of ownership by increasing reliability, reducing maintenance, and improving filter and pump life."
The media's lower differential pressure means that the hydraulic system need not divert valuable energy to push fluid through a highly resistant filter. For example, when compared against comparable existing high-performance 10-micron media at beta 200 efficiency, the new H&V media reduces resistance from 6.8 mm to 3.5 mm of water at 5.3 cm/sec flow.
"The performance of H&V's next-generation hydraulic filter media permanently redefines the capacity/permeability relationship at each micron rating," said Shepard. "When combined with H&V's renowned quality and global presence, it delivers all the filter performance and service a hydraulic system requires, plus the energy savings that design engineers dream of."
Product designers are able to use the media in two ways: to produce a premium product with 50% lower delta pressure and an increased lifetime or to reduce the size of the filter and maintain the equivalent performance.
The new filter media comes in 5-, 10-, and 20-micron ratings. Each retains the filter manufacturer's existing caliper requirements and runs on production lines without alteration.
H&V's energy-saving hydraulic filter media is ideal for construction, agriculture, industrial equipment, material handling, automotive, steel, marine, power station, and wind turbine applications.
