Pressure filters are used to protect downstream components from contamination levels beyond the recommended cleanliness target. Because they are typically sized for the output of the pump, pressure filters tend to be smaller than return line filters when cylinders are present. In systems using accumulators, pressure filters must be sized according to the large effective flow rates present during parts of the duty cycle.
In some applications, pressure filters are used as isolation filters to protect specific components such as proportional or servo valves. Typically these filters are non-bypass and employ elements that are capable of withstanding full system differential pressure without collapsing. While these filters are sized to handle only a specific components' required flow, the use of high collapse elements result in a higher cost than elements used in housings with bypass valves. Most isolation filters are direct mounted beneath the valve which can save space as well as reduce plumbing costs.
