SwiftSorb™ Filter Elements

Free water in hydraulic or lube systems is a serious contaminant. To selectively absorb water, any Swift element can be co-pleated with our SwiftSorb water absorber. The SwiftSorb layer reacts with water to physically lock the water to the absorbent material via hydrogen bonding so that it cannot return to the oil or fuel. By removing water, oil life is extended as well as the life of your equipment. A filter element with SwiftSorb absorbent media helps protect your hydraulic system from both particulate and water contamination, providing absolute filtration of solid particles to Βx(c) = 1000 levels.

By removing water from your fluid power system, you can help avoid many problems, such as:

  • jammed valves
  • bearing fatigue
  • corrosion
  • lubricity loss
  • variances in viscosity
  • increased electrical conductivity

SwiftSorb "super absorber" media absorbs many times its own weight in water, trapping it for easy removal with minimal pressure drop. It is available with all microfiberglass filter elements (SWIFTGLASS™ products).

Applications for SwiftSorb Elements

  • Gasoline
  • Kerosene
  • Diesel fuel
  • Insulating oil
