Parker Hannifin is introducing an extensive range of competitively priced replacement filter elements. The are said to be fully interchangeable with a wide range of Hydac filters, but with immediate availability, low prices and equivalent or better quality. Par<>Fit interchange elements enable users to acquire all their replacement elements from one quality source, regardless of the original equipment manufacturer.
Par<>Fit interchange elements must conform to all the same rigorous tests as the standard Parker replacement elements, hence they meet or exceed all specifications for the following tests: IS0 2941 Element Collapse/Burst Resistance, IS0 2942 Fabrication Integrity, IS0 2943 Material Compatibility, IS0 3724 Flow Fatigue Resistance, and IS0 4572 and ISO 16889 Multipass Test.
The Parker Interchangeable Element Range includes Microglass III and Coreless Ecoglass III replacement elements. Microglass III elements feature a multi-layered design that results in high dirt holding capacity and high efficiency, with a wire support that reduces pleat bunching and keeps performance consistent. Benefits are said to include outstanding performance value, reliable performance throughout the element's life, and reduced downtime due to a longer element life.
Ecoglass III has no metal content in the element, which reduces the overall weight by 50 per cent, and has the advantage of easy compaction of used elements, with eco adapters available. The benefits include environmentally-friendly disposal by incineration, lower element replacement costs, lower disposal costs, and a coreless design to fit housings that are already installed.
Par<>Fit filter elements are available from authorised Parker distributors and selected Parker stores. With over 20,000 standard variations, there is said to be a Par<>Fit element to fit most sizes and makes of filters on mobile, construction, agricultural and industrial plant. Typical applications include industrial power units, mobile construction equipment, forestry equipment, marine power plants, agricultural equipment, lorry-mounted cranes, waste management trucks, wheeled loaders and lift trucks.
