Ohio Fabricators Introduces New Line of Spin-On Hydraulic Filters

June 4, 2024
The SP Series filters are available with various types of media to ensure hydraulic system cleanliness.

Ohio Fabricators Co. has developed the SP Series hydraulic spin-on filters which are available with a range of filtration media to meet specific application requirements. 

Key features of the SP Series hydraulic filters include: 

  • steel cased for durability
  • flow rating of 22 gpm (83 lpm)
  • ability to capture contaminants as small as 3 microns and
  • bypass settings for pressure and suction applications.

Range of Options Meets Varied Hydraulic System Needs

Various types of filtration media are available for use with the SP Series of spin-on filters, enabling customization to specific hydraulic system application needs. Available filter media types include absolute rated micro-glass, nominally rated cellulose and stainless-steel woven wire mesh. 

No matter which type of filter media is selected, the spin-on filter is capable of capturing and retaining contaminants as small as 3 microns. This ensures the cleanliness of hydraulic oil flowing through a system which is key to maintaining performance.

The filters include bypass settings to enable use for both suction and pressure applications, and can also be used as a hydraulic reservoir breather to protect a reservoir from contamination. For the latter, a breather adapter is available for the SP Series filter. It features an all-aluminum construction and 3/4 male NPT tank mount.

Filters supplied with micro-glass filtration media are available with water removal options to aid with specific contamination removal requirements. A range of other accessories or optional features are available as well. These include 25 psi bypass settings, a 5 psi suction setting as well as pressure and vacuum gauges.
