Pressure Filters

STAUFF Pressure Filters were designed for in-line mounting in hydraulic and lubrication systems. They are placed behind the pump and clean the hydraulic oil before it flows through down-stream components like valves, cylinders and so on. The main reason for pressure filtration is the protection of downstream, sensitive components. Eroded particles from the pump are immediately filtered out of the hydraulic oil. Besides working as a protection filter, Pressure Filters also help to maintain the required purity class.

Because it is placed right behind the pump, a Pressure Filter has to withstand the maximum system pressure. The filter element in the Pressure Filter also has to withstand the loads and is more intricately constructed, for example as a Return-Line filters element.

STAUFF Pressure Filters are available in many different sizes, connections and configurations.

Return-Line Filters

STAUFF Return-Line Filters were designed as filters for tank-top mounting, tank-inside mounting or inline mounting. They filter the hydraulic oil before it flows back into the reservoir. This ensures that contamination arising in the components does not get into the tank. Return-Line filters maintain the targeted purity class like Pressure Filters. However, because of their arrangement, they do not fulfil the additional function of a protection filter. In contrast to a Pressure Filter, it only has to withstand low pressure levels.


The practical design of STAUFF Return-Line Filters enables quick assembly as well as
easy exchange of the filter elements.
