Anti Static Filter Elements

SwiftDischarge® Anti-Static Filter Elements

SwiftDischarge anti-static filter elements employ an advanced proprietary conductive media technology to dissipate triboelectric charges generated via the flow of fluids through media. This exclusive media insures a very low charge across filter media over long periods of time to mitigate discharge sparking.

The SwiftDischarge Anti-Static Filter Element Advantage

  • Dissipates triboelectric charges generated from petrochemical flow through synthetic media
  • Superior strength and heat tolerance
  • Exceptional chemical resistance
  • Allows lower pressure drop which reduces ESD

Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is a common problem with ash-free and zinc-free fluids. These modern oils have low electrical conductivity because they do not contain the heavy metals of previous generation fluids.

Oil passing through hydraulic or lubricating systems filters can generate electrostatic charges. Electrostatic charge buildup can lead to a high voltage spark from filter media to support tube. 

Common Issues Anti-Static Filters Mitigate:

  • Oil degradation and varnish
  • Damage to components such as valves
  • Potential damage to electronic components
  • Potential explosions and damage to filter media

Our Anti-Static Filters Help Reduce:

  • Seized valve spools
  • Overheated solenoids
  • Filter clogging
  • Shorter fluid life

SwiftDischarge media is available with all our Microglass filter elements.
Anti-static SwiftDischarge Elements are suitable for power generation applications (gas turbines and power plants), plastic injection molding machines, mobile hydraulics, the pulp and paper industry and any other application that uses low-conductivity oils.

We design and manufacture thousands of custom and customized filter elements in our U.S-based Ohio manufacturing facility.
