When the oil passes through the filter media it can generate high voltage sparking. This can lead to issues including:

  • Decrease in lube oil life
  • Reduction of filter efficiency
  • Direct damage to components
  • Filter media damage and melting of the glass fibre media
  • Allowing contaminates to pass through the filter causing damage to components

ESD filters use an exclusive advanced filter media technology to dissipate the ESD charge and protect the filter.

BioKem can assist with filter and lube analysis to confirm ESD is occurring within your system.
