Especially developed for mobile hydraulics

Stauff provides hydraulic bypass filters for agricultural and forestry machinery

In addition to conventional full-flow filters which usually remove only the particles larger than 3 micrometres, the strategy at Stauff is to rely on a slow but continuous, and therefore very effective filtration of the so-called bypass flow of the system using bypass filters of the BPS series. The fine, specially-developed cellulose filter medium removes even the tiniest impurities that are smaller than 1 micrometre.

Bypass filter systems were originally developed for use in mobile hydraulics. Using a special flow control valve, the required flow of oil is taken directly from the main system without any need for an integrated motor/pump unit. The low nominal flow rate of only 4.2 litres per minute does not affect the actual functioning of the hydraulic main system.

The filter housing and elements are resistant to the hydraulic fluids in accordance with ISO 15380 (2004) often used in mobile hydraulics that biodegrade quickly (commonly called "bio oils"), which makes them ideal for use with agricultural and forestry machinery and equipment.

Stauff bypass filters from the BPS series can be used both in original equipment and in the retrofitting of existing equipment. Suitable adapters are available for floor or wall mounting if necessary.
