Revolutionize Industry Standards with High-Performance Metal Filters

As a machinery manufacturer, engineer, or procurement manager in the military, aerospace, marine, and industrial sectors, you know the challenges of improving operational efficiency, reducing maintenance costs, and ensuring superior performance.

You’ve likely seen how substandard filters can cause contamination in hydraulic systems, frequent equipment failures, and escalating maintenance costs. These issues disrupt your operations, eat into your profitability, and compromise safety—something no one in these critical industries can afford.

At Fluid Conditioning Products, we’re proud to offer you a solution in our precision-engineered metal filters. Made from corrosion-resistant materials such as stainless steel, nickel-copper, brass, and bronze, these all-metal filters have been rigorously tested in demanding settings like U.S. Army helicopters and commercial Boeing 737 jets. The results? A significant reduction in contamination and maintenance requirements, leading to improved operational efficiency and cost savings for you.

Our metal filters should be the standard for your industry. Request a quote today and experience the FCP difference for yourself. Together, let’s revolutionize your operations and set new standards for performance and efficiency.

Advantages of Metal Filters Over Other Legacy Materials

Metal mesh filters have a distinct advantage over legacy materials due to their superior durability and efficiency. When using metal filters in your machinery, you invest in components that withstand the harshest conditions. Unlike cellulose, paper, spun polyester, and fiberglass filters, metal filters don’t degrade over time or under intense pressure. They are built to last, providing reliable filtration even in the most demanding settings, such as a military jet engine.

Dramatically Reduce Maintenance

One of the most compelling reasons to choose metal filters is their ability to reduce maintenance times dramatically. In both U.S. Army testing in Blackhawk helicopters and commercial airline testing in Boeing 737 jets, all-metal filters have consistently proven to reduce contamination in hydraulic systems and cut maintenance on various components. With less contamination getting in your engines, you can remarkably reduce maintenance times by as much as 10x! Your machinery can keep running smoothly with fewer interruptions, boosting productivity and operational efficiency.

Realize Enormous Cost Savings

Choosing metal air filters, hydraulic, oil, or water filters for your operations can save significant costs. By reducing maintenance times and extending the service life of your machinery, metal filters help you get more out of your investment. The savings also extend to reduced downtime and fewer replacement parts, contributing to a lower total cost of ownership. Tests have shown that all-metal filters can save approximately $4 million for every 100 hours of flight time in a fleet of 2,000 helicopters. These figures underscore the financial benefits of opting for metal filters in your jets, airplanes, submarines, ships, and more.

Significantly Reduce Contamination

The primary function of any filter is to reduce contamination, and this area is where metal filters truly excel. All-metal filters have been shown to decrease contamination in hydraulic systems by about 95%, a performance that far surpasses traditional filters. By effectively removing contaminants, metal filters protect your machinery’s critical components, prolonging their lifespan and ensuring optimal performance. This longevity not only maintains the integrity of your machinery but also safeguards the safety and effectiveness of your operations, providing a better product for your customers.

Are You Still Using Fiberglass Filters?

We hate to break it to you. If you still rely on legacy filtration materials like cellulose or fiberglass/glass fiber—especially in crucial aviation applications, such as hydraulic filtration—you’re not getting the performance your equipment needs to operate at its best. While these filters may have served you well in the past, they simply can’t compete with metal filters’ durability, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. Fiberglass filters are prone to degradation over time and under intense pressure, resulting in frequent replacements and high maintenance costs.

On the other hand, FCP’s all-metal filters are designed to withstand extreme conditions without compromising their performance. They can also offer much-improved filtration efficiency, and they excel in several other essential performance measurements for filtration—whether they are used in gas, liquid, or air filtering. The best news? At Fluid Conditioning Products, we can help you make the critical switch to metal filters.

Using a Metal Filter in Aerospace, Marine, and Defense Applications

Woven metal mesh filters and various metal filter media have all been “real-life tested” in commercial and military aviation applications to see how each compares to fiberglass. And the bottom line is that metal filters outperform their traditional counterparts. As we advance, it’s becoming clear that all-metal filters should be considered the standard in the aerospace, defense, and marine industries.

Military Jets


The defense industry requires components that can withstand extreme conditions while delivering exceptional performance. FCP’s metal filters are up to the task. Our filters are ideally suited for military applications with their superior durability and efficiency. Metal fiber media also has absolute filter ratings as low as 3 microns and does not break or shed like traditional glass fiber media.

Data from a 36,000-hour test on 120 helicopters have shown that when comparing the number of equipment failures in the hydraulic pump, primary servo, SAS actuators, and tail rotor servo, failure rates dropped between 88% and 92% with all-metal filters. Therefore, our filters protect your helicopter’s critical systems from contamination and contribute to a lower total cost of ownership for your customers.

Other Aerospace


The performance and reliability of components can mean the difference between success and failure. Our filters are designed to withstand the rigors of aerospace environments, providing effective filtration even under extreme conditions. This durability means that all-metal filters present many cost-saving opportunities, from hydraulic, lube, air, and oil filtration to fuel tank inerting and APU Sound reduction.
