What type of filter do you need for your construction machinery?

It can sometimes be difficult to know where to start with such a wide choice of filters available. Every manufacturer has a recommended partner brand and advises using these filters, adapted for use with your construction machinery. And yet, many adaptable filters are just as effective and will provide the same performance levels. What is even more difficult to determine is the frequency with which they should be replaced or when is the right time to replace them, given the number of factors that need to be taken into account: the number of working hours, periods of inactivity, damaged mechanical parts, etc.

At Codimatra, our experts have already had to deal with all of these issues and can respond to any questions you may have with regards to the filters on your construction machinery.

These should be changed once a year, each time you change oil, or after a certain number of hours – roughly 200 hours if you are using 15W40 oil and roughly 400 hours if you are using 10W40 oil.

Your oil filter is essential when it comes to ensuring your engine works properly, a component that helps to continuously purify the engine oil. It retains any impurities found in the engine, whether external (dust, sand, volatile compounds, etc.) or internal (carbon deposits, wear particles, etc.) and helps keep the engine clean. This means that it is essential for you to replace your oil filter each time you change your oil or after a certain number of hours have passed.

You air filter is a component that helps to protect your engine from damage caused by external pollutants (insects, dust, pollen, etc.). It should be changed as soon as it becomes clogged up. When working in dry and dusty environments, you will need to replace your filter more frequently. Engines consume a great deal of air (in m3) per hour. If your filter is clogged or in poor condition, a number of issues can arise, including a drop in performance for your construction machinery and increased consumption levels. Preventative maintenance is the best course of action to take for these filters, given their level of exposure to pollutants.

Your fuel filter is a filter that helps eliminate any unwanted elements that can be found in petrol. Fuel filters have high retention capacities for even the smallest particles, meaning they comply with the stricter requirements of new environmental regulations. They should be changed once the filter becomes clogged up.

Your hydraulic filter is a component that helps protect hydraulic machinery from impurities, whether external or internal. Just one particle of pollution, whether it’s from sand, weld spatter, fibres, metallic particles or rust, can cause damage to a pump and have a knock-on effect on the components of the hydraulic system itself. It is important that you replace the hydraulic filter roughly once every 800 hours.

Your cab filter prevents any unwanted particles from entering and is essential when it comes to the air quality in the operator’s cab. Depending on the machine and how it is used, these filters can be fine-tuned to varying extents. They should be replaced after between 500 and 1000 hours.
