SwiftStaticDischarge filter elements from Swift Filters employ a media technology that dissipates triboelectric charges generated via the flow of fluids through filter media. The technology ensures a low charge across media and fluid over long time periods to mitigate sparking. Electrostatic discharge is a common problem with ash-free, zinc-free hydraulic and lubricating oils. Oil passing through hydraulic or lubricating system filters can generate static charges, leading to high-voltage sparks from filter media to the filter’s metal support tube. These sparks can lead to oil degradation, varnish, component damage, and potential explosions. The filter elements are suitable for applications such as power generation, plastic injection molding machines, and mobile hydraulics.
