The reliability and efficiency of any filtration system is chiefly dependent on the quality of the cartridges used in it. HILCO has a full line of filter cartridges for virtually every application depending on size, filtration efficiencies and dirt-holding capacity. Most fluids can be restored to a like-new condition.
HILCO’s on-site testing facility is continuously examining and improving cartridge performance as customer’s needs evolve. HILCO is a major to supplier to original equipment manufacturers worldwide.
WHAT SETS US APART FROM THE REST
We stock 20 different element media’s in master rolls to be slit as customer requirements come in, as well as several different sizes of steel mesh for strainers. Additionally, we have a machine shop to make custom end caps and “O” ring inserts.
With several robotic machines and presses to produce disc style cartridges we are capable of producing 25,000 plus cartridges a month depending on customer requirements.
SIZING FOR NEED
Our current cartridge sizes range from 2” in diameter x 4” long to 20” in diameter x 50” long and all sizes in between. Our custom fabricated pleaters are capable of producing elements with pleat heights from 5/32” to 2-5/32” and widths to 51-3/32” wide. This allows us to create our controlled radius pleats providing the end user with more measurable dirt holding capacity
CUSTOM/STOCK AND DELIVERY
With most cartridges kept in stock HILCO is ready to ship the same day to fulfill our customers’ needs. With our excellent engineering staff and manufacturing expertise we are capable of producing a custom cartridge in as little as two weeks.
The backbone of cartridge construction is the center tube. HILCO has center tube manufacturing machines capable of producing louvered tubes from 1-5/8” diameter to 15” in diameter ranging in length from 4” to over 50” long.
ON-SITE TESTING FACILITY
HILCO’s laboratory can analyze fluid samples and provide the most cost effective solutions.
pleated synthetic ph
These durable cartridges stand up to continued use without softening and deterioration as a result of exposure to water. The key is an advanced synthetic media that provides maximum filtration with minimum pressure drop.
PLEATED CELLULOSE PL
HILCO Microgard™ cartridges provide reliable, long-life contamination control. These efficient filter cartridges feature three filtration layers: outer cellulose-media layer for coarse filtration , an intermediate glass-media for microfiltration, and an inner cellulose-media layer for added support.
HILCO Safegard™ single-layer pleated paper cartridges are economical for use in applications requiring general filtration. Disposable cartridges feature molded urethane ends on various sizes. Plated metal end caps are also available with controlled radius pleats to maximize useable filtration area.
Hilsorb Dryer Filter Cartridges quickly and effectively remove solid and water contaminants from hydraulic, lube and insulating oils. The PD cartridge is made with a patented four-ply construction and is available in two efficiency ratings.
HP HYDRAULIC FLUID
HILCO High-pressure hydraulic cartridges are engineered for 2000 PSI pressure. The ability to withstand high pressure permits placement in the high-pressure circuit to protect sensitive hydraulic components. Contains micro- glass filter media between protective screens.
SAFLOW STACKED DISC
Saflow™ (DS) and Saflow™ D (DD) Cartridges withstand cold starts and high pressure differentials. These specially designed stacked disc cartridges provide protection at high pressure differentials brought on by cold starts and high viscosities. The stacked cellulose paper discs with labyrinth oil channels also provide depth filtration and high dirt-holding capacity.
SELEXSORB GT CARTRIDGES
Selexsorb™ GT is a patented adsorbent filter cartridge specifically designed for use with phosphate ester fluids such as AKZO Chemical’s Fyrquel®. It maintains the original quality of fluids for prolonged periods, thus reducing the need for fluid changeouts and increasing equipment life. These cartridges feature metal ambients for added strength, as well as a polyester media retainer for both chemical resistance and media retention. Other features include lifting handles and lifting tabs for added convenience in handling.
DRY RESIN ION EXCHANGE
HILCO Dry Resin Ionic Exchange cartridges are a highly effective solution for reducing TAN level in phosphate ester fluids as well as reducing varnish potential in both mineral and synthetic fluids. Hilco’s Dry Resin Ionic exchange is a cost effective treatment method when used in a kidney loop arrangement that has 7 times the acid scavenging capacity of Fullers Earth and nearly 3 times the capacity of Selexsorb while adding nothing to the fluid.
LIQUID COALESCING CARTRIDGES
Hilco coalescing systems are the ideal way to remove moisture contamination in any liquid fuel. Hilco has been manufacturing coalescers for liquid fuels for over twenty five years. Systems are available with flow capacities as high as 1500 GPM (5700 LPM).
GAS COALESCER / SEPARATOR CARTRIDGES
The Hilcosep was designed to remove moisture and particulate contamination from steam and gas turbine lube oils. Self-sufficient stand-alone models with reservoir capacity ranging from 2,000 gallons to 12,000+ gallons and portable models as well as custom designs are available.
The HILCO Demister element is the heart of the Oil Mist Eliminator. This element captures the oil mist that is created from the shearing in rotating equipment. It then coalesces the oil vapor and returns it to the sump to provide a cleaner environment and savings in lubrication costs.
ANTI STATIC CARTRIDGE
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. These style elements are available in every standard HILCO media grade code.
HILCO Process cartridges utilize a proprietary blend of media to provide consistent performance and higher dirt holding capacity at an economical price.
The reliability and efficiency of any filtration system is chiefly dependent on the quality of the cartridges used in it. We’ve worked hard to develop a full line of quality HILCO® cartridges for virtually every application. HILCO can restore many oils and coolants to a like-new condition. Our full line of filter cartridges includes various sizes, filtration efficiencies and dirt-holding capacities. All of our filter cartridges are developed to provide long service life and high quality. HILCO cartridges feature quality design and construction. We also make HILCO- quality replacements for other brands of cartridges used in lube oil and fuel oil applications.
