SwiftGreen™ Return Line Filter Elements
Feature Reusable Bypass Valve to Save Money, Minimize Hazardous Waste
(March 18, 2010) Swift Filters, Inc. has announced a new line of filter elements for return line applications. SwiftGreen™ filter elements feature a unique reusable machined aluminum bypass valve assembly. Because they can be used indefinitely with fresh filter elements, these bypass valves significantly reduce expenses while minimizing disposal volume. Since used filters are often classified as hazardous waste, SwiftGreen filter elements provide an opportunity to reduce their user's environmental "footprint," as well as save money on filter element costs. When it is time to replace a used element, the bypass is removed and then inserted into a fresh SwiftGreen element. Typical cost savings average 35 - 40% over traditional (non-recyclable) return line filter elements.
SwiftGreen elements can be used as direct replacements for most major OEM filter elements. All elements employ the latest generation of SwiftGlass™ Bx(C) ≥ 1000 (per ISO 16889) micro-fiber glass filter media. This media provides high levels of fluid cleanliness while maintaining low pressure drop characteristics. SwiftGreen filter elements are used on the return side of a hydraulic/lubrication circuit, including those found in wind
turbine, power generation, machine tool and many industrial applications. They are interchangeable with filter elements from many original equipment manufacturers including Hydac®, Stauff®, Pall®, Parker®, Donaldson®, Purolator® and Filtrec®.
