Hydraulic Filter manifolds
- Increase system reliability
- Reduce system weight and complexity
- Reduce space envelope
- Simpler to maintain
A filter manifold combines a number of separate filter assemblies, valves and sensors (pressure, temperature, etc.) into a single unit. This results in a smaller space envelope and reduced total weight and cost.
They are effective at removing aircraft hydraulic fluid contamination .
The manifold concept should be considered in the early phase of system design. It is particularly suitable where the number of connections, pipes, and brackets needs to be minimized.
- Single, integrated package
- Fewer components
- Fewer connection points and couplings
- Less Tubing (less fluid volume)
- Fewer potential failure points
- Single supplier for multiple components
- Provides single-point maintenance
- Engineered to meet OEM specifications
- Increased system reliability
- Reduced system weight and complexity
- Reduced overall cost
- Reduced space envelope
- Simplified logistics support
- Easier to maintain
Components of a Hydraulic Filter Manifold
A filter manifold incorporates the separate sub-components of the fluid system, including:
High-performance filter elements are used to protect the hydraulic system and system components from particulate contamination.
Easily removable bowl contains the filter element. It incorporates a locking mechanism to prevent the filter bowl loosening under vibration in service.
The Differential Pressure Indicator/Switch (DPI/DPS) indicates when the filter element is becoming blocked and needs to be changed. The manifold can also contain temperature and pressure sensors.
Bypass Valve, Check Valve/Flow Control Valve, Shut-Off/Non-return Valve, System Relief Valve, Sampling Valve, Regulating valve.
Shut-Off Diaphragm (optional)
This prevents loss of fluid during element change-out.
