Proactive protection to keep your high value equipment operating effectively
MAGSHIELD – HELPING PROTECT YOUR ASSETS
Fluid contamination control in high-value heavy equipment and machinery is a widely recognised problem, with ~70% plus fluid contamination driven by ferrous materials – increasing to ~90% upon a component failure. Even at the minute level, ferrous contamination in hydraulics and pressurised fluid systems is problematic and whilst there are multiple causes, each with varying levels of probability and impact, the end result is the same – damage, downtime, and cost.
Filtration using media filters has always been an important component of best practices in fluid contamination control. Whilst effective there are some inherent limitations of media filtration:
- They are specifically designed to only filter particles above a certain design size (usually between 3 and 5 microns) with smaller particles passing through the filter and remaining in the system;
- The holding capacity of these filters is limited, resulting in filters needing to be changed regularly;
- When large quantities of contamination are introduced into the circuit (e.g. component failures), media filters reach capacity and enter bypass mode leaving your system unprotected from that point.
Until now, we’ve become accustomed to “living with it” or operating in an environment where certain tolerance levels are just accepted.
MAGSHIELD's MAGNETIC FILTRATION SYSTEMS
MagShield uses high quality, rare earth magnet filters, engineered specifically for your high value equipment, trucks, and machinery to capture finer and more ferrous contaminants from your key fluid operating systems.
Our extensive range of fluid contaminant removal products are designed to complement and enhance existing media filters and hydraulic filtration systems and come in a variety of fluid reservoir and inline options.

DISCOVER MAGSHIELD’S ASSET PROTECTION PRODUCTS
Mag-Shield® is ideal for applications with higher fluid volumes and those where the fluid reservoir is easily accessible. This ultra-high capacity product captures ferrous material on each pass without restricting or altering flow. It supports existing filtration, minimises failures and controls iron contamination as it happens.
Mag-Shield®X is ideal for high-flow applications and systems where the reservoir may be less accessible. A high-capacity magnetic element is situated within a traditional filter housing for easy installation and serviceability, complementing existing filters and constantly cleaning ferrous contaminants from the fluid system.
