HYDAC is pleased to announce the introduction of the RFB compact series filter – the newest member of the HYDAC Air-X return line filter series.
Appropriate for small to medium flow rates, the filter will be sold in five sizes ranging from 45 – 260 lpm. The flow of the filter is inward to outward in a design that is optimized for performance. Additionally, this optimized flow enables reservoir tanks
and the fluid inside them, to be reduced in size/volume by as much as 35%. Standard equipment on the filter includes:
- Integrated lid, including bypass valve
- Patented bayonet connection between the element and the lid
- Outlet via diffuser
- Anti-drain valve is included in the element
According to Colton Lenz, Product Manager for HYDAC, “The addition of the RFB to our product line is a true win-win for our customers. Not only do they get ‘big filter’ performance in a smaller package, it’s very likely they’ll be able to downsize their
reservoir as well with zero compromise in performance. We see this as a potential game-changer in agricultural, construction and material handling applications.”
The filter is mounted in the tank and flow passes through it via a pipe connection from below. The optimal flow conditions created by flow from beneath guarantee optimum air separation, high pulse stability, and long filter service life.
Filter elements are available with the following pressure stability values:
- Glass fiber (ULP): 87 psi (6 bar)
- Glass fiber with pre-filter (UMC): 87 psi (6 bar)
- STAT-Free: 87 psi (6 bar)
