   Configuration       
   Your choices are...         
   Off-line (Recirculating)       Off-line or recirculating filters are completely independent of a machine's main hydraulic system. This filter configuration is sometimes called kidney loop, recirculating, or auxiliary filtration. 
   Return-line (closed loop)       A return filter catches all debris generated by the system’s components and is designed to be the last component that fluid passes before returning to the system reservoir. The location of a return filter allows for much lower pressure ratings and helps reduce costs.

Materials
   Filter Medium Material:       
   Your choices are...         
   Activated Carbon       Activated carbons are made of a variety of materials, the most common of which are bituminous coal and lignite. They have specific properties that are a function of the material source and the mode of activation. Property standards are also useful in specifying activated carbon for a specific application. Granular carbons from bituminous coal and lignite are used mainly in wastewater treatment applications. Granulated, activated carbon can also be produced by roasting organic material. 
   Activated Clay       Activated clay is used to remove dissolved contaminants such as acids, oxidation by-products, colors, and surfactants. 
   Diatomaceous Earth (DE)       Diatomaceous earth (DE) is a naturally-occurring mineral derived from the microscopic, fossilized remains of marine diatoms. DE has high absorption, low bulk density, and high brightness. 
   Cellulose       Cellulose is made from plant fibers. Because it is a natural material, its fibers are rough in texture and varied in both size and shape. These characteristics create a higher restriction to the flow of fluids compared to synthetic media. Cellulose types include cellulose acetate, nitrocellulose or cellulose nitrate, and regenerated cellulose. 
   Ceramic       Ceramic materials are made of nonmetallic minerals (such as clay) that have been permanently hardened by firing at high temperatures. Most ceramics resist both heat and chemicals. 
   Cotton       Cotton is a highly-efficient filtration media because its fibers are irregularly shaped and have good absorption properties. Cotton filters are often a good choice because they provide increased tenacity under wet conditions. 
   Glass Fiber       Glass fibers are completely-incombustible inorganic fibers. They have a high tensile strength in relation to their weight and dimensional stability. Glass fibers do not stretch or shrink. They do not absorb water and resist mildew, deterioration, and decay. 
   Ion Exchange Resin       Ion exchange is a process that involves two similar applications of one technology. The first application is water softening, a process that removes ions from water and replaces them with sodium ions and chloride ions. The second application is deionization, a process that removes ions from water and replaces them with H+ and OH- ions which can combine to form water.  Ion exchange filters are used in residential applications to reduce hardness or improve the taste of water. They are also used to reduce deposits and scale from water with a high level of hardness. Deionization is often used when extremely pure water is required. 
   Metal / Porous Metal       Metal or porous metal filters have a large surface area to trap condensable particles and oil vapor. Products are often corrosion resistant. 
   Mineral / Sand       Sand filtration is often used to eliminate suspended solids from liquids. Though relatively inexpensive, the filtration media must be changed often. 
   Nylon       Nylon is a commonly-used, general-purpose material that comprises several grades of polyamides. Nylon is tough, resistant, and has good pressure ratings. Nylon membranes are compatible with most solvents, both organic and aqueous. Use with strong acids, 70% ethanol, methylene chloride, or dimethylformamide (DMF) is not recommended. 
   Paper       Porous paper can be used specifically for filtering.  
   Polyethersulfone (PES)       Polyethersulfones (PES) are high-performance polymers that are similar to polycarbonates, but much more heat-resistant. Because PES resists water and steam, it is used to make products that must be sterilized between uses (e.g., cookware, medical instruments). 
   Polyester / Fiberglass       Polyester is a manufactured product whose fibers are long-chain, synthetic polymers which, by at least 85% per weight, are composed of an ester of a substituted aromatic carboxylic acid, including but not restricted to substituted terephthalic units. 
   Polypropylene (PP)       Polypropylene (PP) is a thermoplastic material which exhibits excellent cold flow, bi-axial strength, and yield elongation properties. PP is similar to PVC, but can be used in exposed applications because it resists UV, weathering, and ozone. 
   PTFE / Teflon®       PTFE is an insoluble compound that exhibits a high degree of chemical resistance and a low coefficient of friction. It is sometimes marketed in proprietary classes of materials, such as Teflon® (DuPont Dow Elastomers). 
   Polyvinylidene Fluoride (PVDF)       Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) is a melt-process fluoropolymer that provides better strength and lower creep than other fluoropolymers. PVDF has good wear resistance and excellent chemical resistance, but does not perform well at elevated temperatures. Common brand names include Kynar® (Elf AtoChem). 
   Polyvinylidene Chloride (PVDC)       Polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) can be made directly from ethylene and chlorine or by the further chlorination of vinyl chloride with the subsequent removal of hydrogen chloride by alkali treatment. Vinylidene chloride is polymerized in suspension or emulsion processes, using free-radical initiators. Because of its low permeability to water vapor and gases, PVDC is ideal for food packaging. Copolymers of vinylidene chloride and other monomers are also marketed.  
   Polysulfone (PSU)       Polysulfone (PSU) is a thermoplastic polycondensate used in electric connectors. It has high strength, good toughness, good dielectric strength, and dimensional stability. PSU is sold under the trade name Ultrason® (BASF Aktiengesellschaft). 
   Synthetic Fiber       The filter medium material is synthetic fiber. 
   Other       Other unlisted or proprietary materials.

   Housing Material:       
   Your choices are...         
   Aluminum       Aluminum is a bluish, silver-white, malleable, ductile, light, trivalent, metallic element that has good electrical and thermal conductivity, high reflectivity, and resistance to oxidation. 
   Plastic       Plastic is a generic name for certain synthetic or semi-synthetic materials that can be molded or extruded into objects, films, or filaments. 
   Steel       Steel is a commercial iron that contains carbon in any amount up to about 1.7 percent as an essential alloying constituent. It is malleable under suitable conditions, and is distinguished from cast iron by its malleability and lower carbon content. 
   Steel - Stainless       Stainless steel is chemical and corrosion resistant and can have relatively high pressure ratings. 
   Teflon® Coated       Teflon® refers to a class of fluoropolymer resins used for a wide variety of commercial applications. They are highly-resistant to temperature, chemical reaction, corrosion, and stress-cracking. Teflon is a registered trademark of DuPont Dow Elastomers.
