What Do You Absolutely Need to Know About Coalescing Filters?

While there are many reasons that your compressed air system is not operating at its best, one consideration you should investigate is the filtration efficiency of your coalescing filters. Suppose these types of filters allow tiny water droplets into the system downstream. In that case, your compressed air system could be eroding, leading to mechanical …

Why Metal Mesh Filters Perform Better than Fiberglass

When it comes to hydraulics in the aerospace industry, it’s critical to ensure your filtration system works at its best by using metal mesh filters. But suppose you’re currently using fiberglass or paper filters for your hydraulics system. In that case, you could be causing particle contamination in the hydraulics system, leading to increased maintenance …

Around this time last year, we took a look at aerospace and defense industry trends for 2020 as these sectors were in the process of rebounding from some difficult years. Defense spending had been roaring back—and even commercial aerospace, which had endured some decline in 2019, appeared to be getting back on track for growth. …

Are You Getting the Filtration Performance Your Equipment Needs?

The title question for today’s blog post is a simple one—with an answer that may also seem simple at first. Of course you’re getting the filtration performance you need and expect! Your equipment is operational, and you are not experiencing unreasonable amounts of downtime for maintenance today. However, if you read our most recent post …

What is Filter Efficiency, and Why Does It Matter in Metal Filters?

In our most recent blog post, we discussed the latest research that proves all-metal filters outperform fiberglass in aviation applications based on demanding real-life testing. One of the key ways that all-metal wire mesh and sintered metal filters surpass legacy materials like fiberglass is by providing excellent filter efficiency for a longer period of time …

Fiberglass vs. All-Metal Filters – What the Research Shows

New research presented recently to the American Filtration and Separations Society (AFS) provided some exciting new insight into just how effective metal filter media are compared to standard fiberglass filters when it comes to aircraft hydraulic filtration. Woven metal mesh and a variety of sintered metal filter media have all been “real-life tested” in commercial …
