The ability of a filter element to resist a structural failure of the filter medium due to flexing caused by cyclic differential pressure.

Related Terms

CONTAMINANT FAILURE

Any loss of performance due to the presence of contamination. Two basic types of contamination failure are: Perceptible - gradual loss of efficiency or performance, and Catastrophic - dramatic, unexpected failure.

BURST PRESSURE RATING

The maximum specified inside-out differential pressure that can be applied to a filter element without outward structural or filter-medium failure.

CATASTROPHIC FAILURE

Sudden, unexpected failure of a machine resulting in considerable cost and downtime.

FATIGUED

A structural failure of the filter medium due to flexing caused by cyclic differential pressure.

CAVITATION EROSION

A material-damaging process which occurs as a result of vaporous cavitation. 'Cavitation' refers to the occurrence or formation of gas- or vapor- filled pockets in flowing liquids due to the hydrodynamic generation of low pressure (below atmospheric pressure). This damage results from the hammering action when cavitation bubbles implode in the flow stream. Ultra- high pressures caused by the collapse of the vapor bubbles produce deformation, material failure and, finally, erosion of the surfaces.

PREDICTIVE MAINTENANCE

A type of condition-based maintenance emphasizing early prediction of failure using non-destructive techniques such as vibration analysis, thermography, and wear debris analysis.

PROACTIVE MAINTENANCE

A type of condition-based maintenance emphasizing the routine detection and correction of root cause conditions that would otherwise lead to failure. Such root causes as high lubricant contaminant, alignment and balance are among the most critical.

LOAD-CARRYING CAPACITY

Property of a lubricant to form a film on the lubricated surface, which resists rupture under given load conditions. Expressed as maximum load the lubricated system can support without failure or excessive wear.

FAILURE

A rupture, break, or disintegration of a material or part of a system.

DEGRADATION

The progressive failure of a machine or lubricant.
