In-Line Filtration



With up to 80% of oil system failures caused by contamination, the benefits of hydraulic filtration technology results in greater reliability, better performance, higher quality output, and reduced maintenance. The positive effects of filtration can be seen in all industries, such as; mining, marine, manufacturing, construction, and transport.

In-line solutions filter the fluid as it is pumped through the system, catching contamination as it enters and exits the machinery. We only supply filters of the highest quality, ensuring they can provide high flow rates for maximum system performance.

Our range also includes off-line (or dialysis) filtration systems, able to remove even more contamination, prolonging the life of your in-line filter elements, all while your system is in operation. View the MHS Off-Line Filtration range.



STAUFF offers a comprehensive range of filtration products and services with the highest level of contamination control demanded by today's most sophisticated applications. Products include pressure filters, return line filters, spin-on filters, suction strainers and filler breathers for various hydraulic, lubrication and fuel oils.

STAUFF manufactures more than 10,000 different elements. Many of these are designed to fit into filter housings produced by other companies while maintaining or surpassing the performance of the original filter element. The STAUFF Contamination Control Program includes diagnostic services such as fluid sampling and laser particle counting products needed to monitor system contamination levels.

MHS has the technical expertise and years of experience to provide custom filter designs for the STAUFF original filter housings as well as for other selected filtration providers.

Stauff m edium pressure filters have recently been introduced with the benefit to customers that if the pressure and flow limits can be met, these aluminium filters units are approximately half the weight and cost of the steel high pressure units.  They still use the same excellent high pressure Stauff elements.

Magnetic Filters

  magneticfiltration MHS is a distribution agent for Magnom magnetic in-line filters.  Magnom manufacture a range of magnetic filters that capture ferrous and some non-ferrous material as it circulates through the system. These are particularly effective at capturing rust and other wear-related particles before they can generate further damage when reintroduced into the system. Place one in front of your expensive pump to provide protection for the heart of your hydraulic system.
