DNV GL-certified Stauff replacement filter elements

In January 2017, the DNV GL Group approved an extensive part of the replacement filter elements range from the Stauff SFK series (i.e. screw-in and push-in cartridges in stainless steel and plastic versions) for use in single, double and automatic filters.

These filter elements are developed and manufactured in Germany. Among other things, they are used for pre-filtration of fuels in industrial motors from numerous renowned international manufacturers. But they are equally suitable for use with hydraulic and lubricating oils, coolants, chemicals and water.

By issuing the type examination certificate, the shipping classification society with headquarters in Hamburg (Germany) confirms the suitability of the filter elements for use in the marine and offshore industry in compliance with the strict company guidelines.
