Eaton Filter Elements

Eaton’s hydraulic filtration product line features more than 4,000 high-quality filter elements with a high dirt-holding capacity to ensure consistent filter efficiency and long element life. These elements are available with various filter materials, different construction types and micron ratings to help protect critical system components.

Eaton’s wide range of filter elements provide trouble-free operation when filtering abrasive fluids, cooling lubricants or water-based fluids and are designed to achieve cleanliness class requirements. Eaton can perform fluid analysis on-site or in our lab to determine the best filter element for your hydraulic and lubrication system requirements.
