Komatsu Hybrid and Synthetic Filters

Hydraulic filters are used in the torque converter, transmission, steering and hydraulic systems of most machines. These systems have both high pressure and high temperatures. Hydraulic filters act to remove small particles caused by wear in sliding components and plate lining. The wrong filter with a weak center core can cause a filter to collapse and spread contamination throughout the system. Komatsu filters are designed to handle temperature and pressure variations within the hydraulic systems. 

Komatsu uses two types of filters, a hybrid and a full synthetic. The hybrid media is 75% paper and 25% micro fiber. The newest filter is 100% micro fiber also known as ECO White, a Komatsu exclusive.

Hybrid Filter

Features & Benefits

  • The synthetic filter used in most of the newer Komatsu equipment has an exchange interval of 1,000 hours and extends the hydraulic oil change interval from 1,000 hours to 2,000 hours, 5,000 hours on excavators
  • Filter lasts four times longer than conventional filters and twice as long as hybrid filters.
  • Double wire reinforced to keep the media in place under high pressure fluctuations that are typical with hydraulic systems
  • Most older model excavators and wheel loaders can be retrofitted to utilize this hydraulic filter technology
