The SwiftSorb layer reacts with water to lock in the water. A filter element with SwiftSorb media helps protect your hydraulic system from both particulate and water contamination, providing absolute filtration of solid particles to ?x(c) = 1000 levels.
By removing water from your fluid power system, you can help avoid many problems, such as:
variances in viscosity
increased electrical conductivity
SwiftSorb "super absorber" media absorbs many times its own weight in water, trapping it for easy removal with minimal pressure drop. It is available with all microfiberglass filter elements (SWIFTGLASS™ products).
