The article explores the topic of hydraulic filters for educational use and is presented here to refresh your memory. Hope you are able to recall the constructional features, performance specifications, and location-based installation details of hydraulic filters quickly. Let us get down to the nitty-gritty of hydraulic filters…


Modern high-pressure hydraulic systems with components built to closer tolerances are susceptible to many types of contamination. Contaminants can cause the premature wear of internal surfaces. They also promote leakage and clog the flow paths. Therefore, an efficient and correctly-sized filtration system should be an integral part of every hydraulic system to separate the particulate matter of a specified size or greater from the system fluid. They should be fitted at appropriate locations in the hydraulic circuit for the effective control of contamination.
