Hello every one , I want to amelio

Hello every one , I want to amelio

Hello every one ,
I want to ameliorate the filtration of oil used to lubrificate a flender gear reducer ,
and i am going to add a filter before the entry to the gear unit but i can't dimmensionate that filter
here is system details :
oil flow : 315 L / min
Pressure : 5 bar
oil viscosity : 460 cst
what filter do u suggest that i need to use
i am going to joint a picture of hydrauilic schema
the part which is drawn with red is my intervention..thank you

RE: Hello every one , I want to amelio

The oil is already filtered by item (20).

WRT your add-on, I see a filter bypass check valve in parallel with the filter.
Additionally, I see another thing that may be a fill/drain mechanism or something else, but the way I read the schematic, the line connecting that to both sides of the filter also bypasses the filter, without restriction.
... so I don't understand how you are improving things.

If the Flender gearbox is still under warranty, you really should clear your plan with Flender.

RE: Hello every one , I want to amelio

why not simply replace/adapt the existing duplex filters with ones which have a higher filtration level?

RE: Hello every one , I want to amelio

What's missing? You have flowrate, pressure, viscosity. The only thing missing is filtration level.

Remember - More details = better answers
Also: If you get a response it's polite to respond to it.
