Baldwin Filters

Baldwin FiltersA new design for medium-pressure hydraulic spin-on filters uses a seamless can and an aluminum baseplate, which makes the unit lighter and lessens stress on the mounting stud. An L-Lock hem retains the baseplate in a seamless design, and an O-ring gasket replaces the larger molded gasket on the current filters, which reduces the gasket to first-thread distance. Instead of the 1¼ turn required with the current filters, the new filters are installed with a ½ turn after gasket contact.
