Schroeder Industries has developed the top-ported suction filter (SKF3).
The SKF3 is a part of Schroeder’s Suction Filters family. These products range up to 300 psi (20 bar) and flow rates of up to 25 gpm (95 lpm).
Suction filters help protect downstream pumps from contamination due to ingression or lack of initial cleaning. They must be properly sized to avoid cavitation of the pump.
Suction filters are looked at as the first line of defense in a hydraulic system. They help increase the lifetime of downstream components and reduce the particulate load on finer downstream media and in return increases service intervals and reduces unplanned downtime.
The SKF3 brings key features to the market, such as easy element change out, a 2.5 psi suction bypass with reliable visual or electrical vacuum dirt alarms. The SKF3 is available with Schroeder’s quality protected GeoSeal elements (GSKF3). The SKF3 can help protect downstream pumps from contamination, ingression, and is a reliable filter that can help maintain uptime while reducing costs due to unplanned downtime in any suction application.
