The hydraulic filter is a component within a hydraulic system that removes damaging particulates by forcing hydraulic fluid through a porous filter element. The filter element catches contaminants and prevents them from re-entering the fluid flow and damaging other pieces of equipment further downstream. Contaminants range from dirt to water and reactive chemicals. Their size is on a scale of micrometers, meaning hydraulic filters must be properly sized to filter out even the smallest of particles.
