Return filters


Return filters are meant to filter oil that is drained into an oil reservoir. They can be supplied in different versions;

  • Spin-on filters with head used for pipe installation
  • Tank top filter, this filter is installed in the tank. Replacing the filter element is easy

Reasons to use a returnfilter;

  • Minimal investment
  • Less wear in the hydraulic system, more reliability
  • Easy to maintain
  • Different materials available
  • Available with dirt indicator


  • Choose a return filter with the right filter capacity and connections (the amount of oil that is drained into the oil reservoir can be larger than the output)
  • Make sure that the returning oil is below the level of the oil reservoir when using a tank top filter, this prevents foaming
