PTI Technologies designs and produces a range of hydraulic solutions from simple T-type filters to complex filter manifolds for main hydraulic systems that protect return, case drain, and high pressure lines used in today’s commercial and military aircraft and ground support equipment.  Our product families range from complex manifolds incorporating reservoirs, flow control valves, bypass valves, shut-off valves, relief valves, pressure transducer, differential pressure transducers, pressure switches, temperature transducers and visual / electric differential pressure indicators to the subsystems used in our manifolds to our filter elements.  PTI Technologies hydraulics systems can be designed for operating environments up to 5,000 psid pressure and temperatures ranging from -65°F to 350°F.  Our integrated design approach minimizes the space required for a hydraulic system by smart packaging of functions into a single unit, while delivering robust designs that optimize performance and minimize system weight.  In addition, PTI Technologies filter element designs combine high efficiency particle removal while optimizing filtration performances.

Drawing on our longstanding experience in the design, and production of metal fiber media filter elements, PTI Technologies has pioneered the development of improved hydraulic system filter elements using our proprietary 421® media.  These designs have shown a significant improvement in system cleanliness under cyclic flow and vibrations conditions to control filter media migration and thereby, providing improved filter life.  PTI Technologies has qualified this media to the new dynamic MIL-DTL-8815 specification for hydraulic filtration, and is flying these filters today, providing clean hydraulic systems, safer operation all while saving maintenance costs and preventing premature component failures.
