Eaton Reservoir Vent Filters & Spin On Air Filters and Adaptors

A key element of contamination control is reservoir vent filtration. Reservoir vents are a common source of both water and particulate contamination from the atmosphere surrounding a hydraulic system. Fluid contamination can increase:

  • Equipment wear
  • Cause corrosion
  • Reduce fluid performance and life

Hydraulic components have become more complex and operate at higher pressures, flows and temperatures thus making fluid cleanliness a key to longer component life and system reliability. Vickers reservoir vent breathers make it easier to attain higher cleanliness levels, and can extend fluid filter life in the system. Vickers recognizes the variety of atmospheric conditions which hydraulic systems encounter, so we offer a complete line of vent filters to prevent airborne contamination.
