In 2014, a substantial part of the range of replacement filter elements in the Stauff SFK series (i.e. screw-in and plug-in filter elements in stainless steel or plastic design), which are used in single, double and automatic filters, was certified by Germanischer Lloyd (GL).
These filter elements were engineered and produced in Germany. They are used, for example, for the pre-filtration of fuels in industrial heavy-duty motors of numerous well-known international manufacturers, but are also suitable for use with hydraulic and lubricating oils, coolants, chemicals and water.
By issuing the design approval, the Hamburg-based ship classification society has confirmed the suitability of the filter elements for use in the marine and offshore industry in accordance with the strict guidelines of the company.
As the first manufacturer of certified filter elements of this type, Stauff now has a clear advantage over its competitors, allowing the elements to be used on seagoing vessels, for example.
