Filter Element Upgrades

Click to jump to a section:

Cut your filter usage and increase your uptime. (Yes, you read that correctly.)

Hy-Pro filter element upgrades deliver the highest capture and retention efficiencies (βx[c] ≥ 4000) through advanced DFE rated element media and the removal of particles, water and oxidation byproducts, making Hy-Pro elements the one component in your critical systems that saves you money.

Hy-Pro’s advanced media technology is at the heart of our performance. DFE filter element construction goes beyond the lab and is field tested and proven to deliver cleaner oil in industry’s toughest applications, all the time.




We’ll prove it on your system

Together we help you achieve and maintain world class fluid cleanliness with solutions and strategies, sampling best practices, connected fluid monitoring, results interpretation, and condition based solutions all combined to give you cleaner oil and longer element life.





Improved Sustainability

Implement Hy-Pro contamination solutions, strategies and best practices to dramatically improve your sustainability efforts. Hydraulic and lubricating oils are too often prematurely condemned because of contamination. Hy-Pro filter element upgrades have been proven to extend in-service oil life by 3-4 times by removing water, high particle load and oxidation by-products. Eliminate waste from premature oil and filter changes, and get the most out of your oil; restore demulsibility, protect sacrificial additives, eliminate varnish and acid, improve your sustainability and your bottom line at the same time.

How clean is my oil?

Hy-Pro provides the highest single pass capture and retention efficiency.

Hy-Pro DFE rated filter element upgrades deliver industry’s lowest in-service ISO codes before and after the filter. Rated to βX[C] ≥ 4000, Hy-Pro elements ensure your fluids are always clean and always in spec.




It's all about ISO Codes.

What really matters in critical hydraulic, lube and fuel applications is actual in-service oil cleanliness (ISO codes). Proven in both the lab and real world applications, Hy-Pro filter elements deliver the highest single pass efficiency, translating to remarkably lower in-service ISO Codes than competitors.

How long will my filters last?

Dirt makes dirt.

The worst contamination source in properly maintained hydraulic and lube systems is internally generated wear. Small, clearance sized particles including 4μ[C], 6μ[C], and smaller are the most destructive. As these particles pass through your system, they wreak havoc on your sensitive components, generating more dirt along the way. By removing these particles, you ensure your equipment and your filters last up to and even beyond their expected lifespans. The process below demonstrates one way internally generated contaminants are formed.




Hy-Pro Element Upgrades last longer once a new fluid cleanliness equilibrium is achieved.

Hy-Pro elements achieve and maintain lower actual in-service fluid cleanliness (ISO) codes utilizing DFE media technology to capture and retain more contaminants. By maintaining a cleaner system and greatly reducing the rate of internally generated wear, Hy-Pro elements provide incredible efficiency over consistently long lifespans.
