Meeting Cleanliness Levels with By-Pass Filtration
Most fluid power specialists recognize the importance of hydraulic fluid cleanliness to optimize the efficiency and reliability of hydraulic systems. As much as 90% of hydraulic system problems are attributable to fluid contamination. As a result, all hydraulic system designs include filtration to meet or exceed target cleanliness levels. However, depending on the application and operating environment, meeting these targets can be problematic. In this article featured in Fluid Power Journal’s February issue, Des-Case’s Mark Barnes explains how by-pass filtration can help you meet optimal cleanliness levels.
