Our exceptional elements are tested to ensure fabrication integrity in the manufacturing process. They are also tested for efficiency and dirt holding capacity in a multi-pass test stand, equipped with inline particle capabilities, which are calibrated to ISO standards

Schroeder Industries  has replaced its S media with a new generation synthetic Excellement (Z) Media.

At every level of filtration, the Z media has significantly outperformed its predecessor. The special class of micro-glass and other fibers used in Z media are manufactured with utmost precision, to specific thicknesses and densities, and bonded with select resins to create material with extra fine passages. No other filter media can provide the benefits of Schroeder's Excellement Z media: maximum dirt-holding capacity, superior particle capture, minimum pressure drop, high flow rate and low operating cost.

The typical multiple layer construction (shown below) has evolved from comprehensive laboratory testing to provide extended element life and system protection. Each successive layer performs a distinct and necessary function. The outermost layer is designed to maintain element integrity. Beyond this layer is a polypropylene scrim, offering coarse filtration and protection for the more delicate filtering layers within. Multiple sheets of fine filtering media follow, providing intricate passageways for the entrapment of dirt particles. Together, the various layers of filter media provide the ideal combination for peak filtration performance

Schroeder's complete line of quality filtration elements—including Schroeder's original element designs, BestFit replacement elements, Esafe stand-alone disposable elements, and CoreCentric coreless repair elements—are now being manufactured with Excellement (Z) media.

The better efficiencies, lower pressure drops, and higher dirt holding capacities provided by the new Excellement (Z) media mean cleaner oil, longer element life, and less downtime. They outlast, outperform, and excel in every measurable benchmark.

The new Excellement (Z) media series of filter elements have been designed, tested, and proven to be the best performing elements available on the market today.
