Bosch Rexroth has developed a filter sizing program that allows users to input various parameters such as fluid type, fluid viscosity, system temperature, and micron rating to evaluate the pressure drop across Rexroth filters. The sizing software (Filter Select) can be used to quickly determine the best filter for a specific hydraulic application and will provide Rexroth part numbers, model codes, pressure drop curves, dirt holding capacities, spare parts, and more.
At the heart of the Filter Select program is a database of hydraulic fluid information. With close cooperation between several fluid manufacturers, an extensive fluid library has been developed and loaded into Filter Select.
Bosch Rexroth is pleased to announce the latest addition to the Filter Select program to include hydraulic fluids from Houghton International, Inc. The decision to add Houghton fluids to the Filter Select program was further reinforced based on recent testing conducted by Bosch Rexroth and Houghton to demonstrate that Houghton’s hydraulic fluids would deliver the high performance required when using Bosch Rexroth components.
Effective hydraulic fluid performance and filtration can significantly improve the performance, longevity and efficient operation of hydraulic systems. For best results in actual practice, the customer must maintain the fluid and monitor with regular testing. The Filter Select tool makes it fast and easy for customers to find the best filters and fluids for optimal performance and we are pleased to have Houghton fluids included in the program.”
