Hydraulic Filter Calculator
By Mike Brezonick13 April 2021
Stauff has developed an Online Filter Calculator designed to simplify the proper selection of its filters used in mobile hydraulic systems. The web-based tool helps select the most suitable Stauff hydraulic filter based on the application parameters entered. It calculates the correct filter size, generates the complete technical data sheets and provides the ordering codes.
The calculator has been launched on the Stauff homepage. The user is guided through a menu to enter the selection parameters without the need to register or log in. The configuration starts with the selection of the desired filter type (pressure, return-line, inline or bypass filter) and valve (bypass, return, reversing or multi-function valve).
Once the user has selected the filter media and filter grade in micrometers, the configurator asks for volumetric flow and system pressure as well as viscosity, temperature and ISO type of the hydraulic medium used. Based on this information the calculator suggests several filter options. A table shows all suggested filter housings and elements along with technical data, making comparisons easy, said Stauff.
