Hydraulic Tank Strainers

Zinga’s Hydraulic Tank Strainers mount inside the hydraulic reservoir and are also commonly referred to as sump strainers or tank strainers. They are designed to extend the life of your equipment by protecting hydraulic pumps and control systems from solid contaminants, minimizing pressure loss for hydraulic pumps.

How fine should we filter the new fluid before it enters the hydraulic system?

This will depend on the components in the hydraulic system and how tolerant they are to contamination

In any fluid transfer or hydraulic application, an inlet strainer is always a good idea. 100 mesh (141 microns) is a standard offering that is mostly used for stopping large debris from getting into the transfer pump

Beyond a strainer, multiple stages of filtration can be used to ensure fine particulates don’t cause premature wear and failure.

Typically, the first stage can be roughly 25 microns and the next stage can be even finer, such as 3 or 10 microns

Hydraulic tank strainers offer the first line of defense to keep contaminants from damaging your pump
