Filter Information

SwiftSorb™ Filter Elements

Water (both free water and dissolved water) in hydraulic or lube systems is a serious contaminant. To remove water, any Swift element can be co-pleated with our SwiftSorb water absorber. The SwiftSorb layer reacts with water to lock in the water. A filter element with SwiftSorb media helps protect your hydraulic system from both particulate and water contamination, providing absolute filtration of solid particles to Βx(c) = 1000 levels.

By removing water from your fluid power system, you can help avoid many problems, such as:

  • jammed valves
  • bearing fatigue
  • corrosion
  • lubicity loss
  • variances in viscosity
  • increased electrical conductivity

SwiftSorb "super absorber" media absorbs many times its own weight in water, trapping it for easy removal with minimal pressure drop. It is available with all microfiberglass filter elements (SWIFTGLASS™ products).
