How it works

Based on Alfa Laval Atrium technology

Extensive filter area is critical for fine filtration, for example at the very fine grade of 6 μm required for hydraulic control oil. Using the original Alfa Laval Atrium technology, filters in the Alfa Laval 290 filter range provide a tremendous increase in filtering surface – with virtually no impact on pressure drop.

This is possible through the special patented shape of the Atrium filter elements, as well as their smaller and highly optimized flow distribution system. Atrium technology creates the market’s best ratio between the available filtering surface and the total footprint/volume of the filter.
