Eaton’s UM 15 Mobile Filter Unit for Hydraulic Systems

April 4, 2024
The compact and portable offline filtration solution is made to improve the lifespan and reliability of hydraulic systems with high-performance filtration capabilities.

Eaton has expanded its range of offline filter units with the introduction of its UM 15. Designed to meet the demand for portable and efficient hydraulic fluid filtration solutions, the UM 15 is an option for a range of industries, including mining and construction.

Key features include:

  • Lightweight and portable deign for easy transportation
  • WPL spin-on filters with WP filter elements for high-performance filtration
  • Filters have flow rates up to 48 gpm (180 l/min) at operating temperatures from 14 to 230°F (10 to 110°C) and an operating pressure of 145 psi (10 bar)
  • Choice between WP 90 and WP 130 filter element sizes, each offered with fiberglass fleece or paper as the filter material and provide a filter fineness of 10 µm.
  • Equipped with holders for hose lances and optical clogging indicator for easy monitoring.

Simone Ortner, engineering manager at Eaton’s Filtration Division, highlighted the versatility of the unit, stating in the company’s press release, “Due to its lightweight and portable design, the filter unit can be utilized in locations that larger mobile devices, requiring transportation on trolleys, cannot access.”

In addition to its performance capabilities, the UM 15 is equipped with practical holders for hose lances to ensure clean and safe handling, along with an optical clogging indicator for easy monitoring of the filter element’s condition.

It weighs 33 lb (15 kg), so the unit is easy to transport and operate. It consists of a compact and robust support frame, a motor-pump unit, suction and drain hose lance with an interposed WPL spin-on filter and an optical clogging indicator from the O series. The filter system offers a pump output of 4 gpm (15 l/min) at 2,800 U/min and can be used for mineral oil-based hydraulic fluids with a viscosity of 10 to 400 mm²/s.
