The switching function can be changed by turning the electric upper part by 180° (normally closed contact or normally open contact). The state on delivery is a normally closed contact. By inductivity in the direct current circuit the use of suitable protection circuit should be considered. Further maintenance indicator details and designs are available in the maintenance indicator data sheet.

We draw attention to the fact that all values indicated are average values which do not always occur in specific cases of application. Our products are continually being further developed. Values, dimensions and weights can change as a result of this. Our specialized department will be pleased to offer you advice.

We recommend you to contact us concerning applications of our filters in areas governed by the EU Directive 94/9 EC (ATEX 95). The standard version can be used for liquids based on mineral oil (corresponding to the fluids in Group 2 of Directive 97/23 EC Article 9). If you consider to use other fluids please contact us for additional support.

9. Installation, operating and maintenance instructions
10.1 Filter installation
When installing the filter make sure that sufficient space is available to remove filter element and filter housing. Preferably the filter should be installed with the filter housing pointing downwards. The maintenance indicator must be visible.
10.2 Connecting the electrical maintenance indicator The electrical indicator is connected via a 2-pole appliance plug according to DlN EN 175301-803 with poles marked 1 and 2. The electrical section can be inverted to change from normally open position to normally closed position or vice versa.
10.3 When should the filter element be replaced?
1. Filters equipped with visual and electrical maintenance indicator: During cold starts, the indicator may give a warning signal. Press the red button of the visual indicator once again only after operating temperature has been reached. lf the red button immediately pops up again and/or the electrical signal has not switched off after reaching operating temperature, the filter element must be replaced after the end of the shift.
2. Please always ensure that you have original Filtration Group spare elements in stock: Disposable elements (PS) cannot be cleaned.
10.4. Element replacement
Note: The maintenance indicator monitors the filter side in operation, which is identified by the position of the switching lever catch. The flow transfer valve must be switched prior to filter servicing. Now the signal of the maintenance indicator is cancelled and the red button can be depressed again.
1. Operate and hold pressure equalizing lever located in the switching lever. Swivel switching lever. Engage the catch. Place through or drip pan underneath to collect leaking oil.
2.  Loosen vent screw of the filter side not in use by 2-3 turns; maximum back out against safety stop.
3. Unscrew filter bowl by rotating same counter clockwise and clean with a suitable medium.
4. Remove filter element with a side-to-side motion.
5. Check o-ring on the filter housing and the spigot for damage. Replace, if necessary.
6. Make sure that the order number on the spare element corresponds to the order number of the filter name-plate. Remove the plastic bag and push element over the spigot in the filter head.
7. Complete installation by screwing on the housing, turning clockwise until it comes to a full stop. Back off the housing 1/8 to 1/2 turn.
8. To refill the filter chamber, operate only the pressure equalizing lever long enough for the medium to emerge bubblefree from the vent bore. Tighten vent screw. Check filter for leaks by operating the pressure equalizing lever once again.
