We hate to break it to you. If you are still relying 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.
But not to worry. All-metal filters can offer much-improved filtration efficiency, and they also 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.
SO, WHY ARE METAL FILTERS BETTER?
Metal filters remarkably reduce maintenance times by as much as 10x! This considerable reduction in maintenance time presents considerable cost savings, too. Testing has shown that all-metal filters reduce contamination by as much as 95%.
Woven metal mesh filters and various sintered metal filter media have all been “real-life tested” in commercial and military aviation applications to see how each compared to fiberglass. And the bottom line is that metal filters outperform their traditional counterparts. It’s becoming clear that all-metal filters should be considered the standard in the aerospace and defense industries going forward.
