Hy-Pro Dynamic Filter Elements
Two key characteristics of filter performance are capture efficiency and retention efficiency.
The Dynamic Filter Efficiency (DFE) test, a joint effort between Scientific Services Inc. and HY-PRO Filtration, is the evolution hydraulic and lube filter performance testing.
If not properly designed and applied, a filter can become one of the most damaging sources of contamination in a system. Hydraulic filters encounter frequent and rapid changes inflow rate accompanied by frequency changes, while lube filters typically experience dynamic conditions during start up and shut down.
It is therefore of utmost importance that capture efficiency and retention efficiency remain key characteristics.
