Does anyone know of a good secondary source for hydraulic oil filters, o-rings and such? (other than the OEM's)

Posted:  08 Apr 2011 20:28
I've used Martin Fluid Power for o-rings and other seals.

I purchase hydraulic oil filters from my local Parker store. They cost a little more but considering what they are protecting, well worth it.

We mostly have electric machines. We do have some hydraulics but due to we only have a few machines we mainly go with the OEM on fluid filters/Orings. However, we do utilize the following vendor for some unusal hydraulic applications and they have came through for us in past. Worth talking with them on your applications. They do a good job.

Vendor info
Air HydroPower
Louisville, KY

can be reached at 502-451-1000 x8214

Good luck,

Wayne, for what it’s worth, I have had good results both in price and quality from a company called Filpro. ( 800-324-8940. Are you looking for large quantities of O-rings? We do have a source that we use in an assembly that I could get the contact information for. Let me know.

Thanks to everyone who replied to this posting. I was impressed with the response. We are currently exploring every suggestion and I am confident we will get a good source out of this.

Thanks also to Troy Nix for supplying the venue and calling me to follow up on my satisfaction level. "It's a 10!"
