Anti-Static Filter Elements

Static discharge is a common problem in the lubricating oil systems of today’s turbo-machinery. Hilco PH-CGJ style filter elements incorporate conductive fibers which are co-pleated in between two layers of hi performance microglass filter media. As a result the Hilco anti-static filter element dissipates static charge build up before discharge can occur.

Determining problems and errors in the field just got easier with the new WIKA MH-3 pressure transmitter for mobile working machines. WIKA Instrument, LP captures the latest pressure sensor technology with the addition of the diagnostic function in the new MH-3 pressure transmitter.
