MAHLE Automatic Cleaning Filters

Exotech Fluid Management recognises the importance of Automatic Cleaning Filters, which is why we have partnered with MAHLE to bring to Australia their line of automatic cleaning filters.

Automatic cleaning filters allow for continual process operation, which means reduced downtime and predictable production for industries such as:

  • Chemical
  • Petrochemical
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Food
  • Drive
  • Maritime

How will your business benefit from less down time and continual operation?

BUHLER Fluid Monitoring

Buhler Industries provides operators of fluid power and lubrication sy­stems the benefits of over 40 years of experience with the aim to monitor your working fluid in (i) physical volume via their extensive range of level probes (ii) temperature via temperature probes or even as a combination of both.

With their comprehensive range of level / temperature probes and sensors, contact Exotech Fluid Management for your proactive fluid management solution.

With increasingly stringent legislation to protect the environment which puts pressure on hydraulic system users to prevent leakage, an effective way to achieve this, is to continuously monitor the level of fluid in the system reservoir. Most system reservoirs have a sight glass indicating the level of the fluid over a very limited range. With BUHLER Industries extensive range of level / temperature probes you have peace of mind you’re your investment (system fluid) is being maintained.


The Nivotemp range combines the control of both liquid level and temperature. The mounting flange has dimensions according to DIN 24557 part 2 and fits on the six hole 73mm interface used for breather filters around the world, thus making installation simple and cost effective. The level contacts are bi-stable and adjustable, for proactive leakage control the unit can be equipped with continuous output of 4-20 mA.


The Nivovent range offers in addition to reservoir ventilation and level control, the measurement of the liquids temperature.

The Nivovent tank top connection is standardised according to DIN 24557 part 2. Dimensions which are already in use worldwide, making it possible to update existing systems to incorporate Nivovent technology with as little effort as possible.

Level switch for external mounting

The control of liquid in reservoirs, gear boxes and other complex constructions often required an externally mounted indicator and means of control.
The NS10/25 range of level controls has been designed specially to be used in such applications and offers a very comprehensive range of features. The visual level indicator is a standard item and has a very high degree of visibility from any direction. The indicator itself is housed in a plastic tube and moves in relation to the magnetic field of an unsinkable float located in the liquid through pipe. The electrical level contacts or a continuous output device are mounted on the side of the indicator scale. The contacts can be adjusted at any point. The connection to the main structure can be made by means of standard pipe fittings or flanges.

Temperature measurement

A stable operating temperature is essential for precise and trouble free operation of hydraulic an lubrication systems, hence the requirements laid down in DIN 24346 for the provision of adequate controls.

Modern processor controlled systems can cope with this problem by regulation of the operating temperature within a very narrow span when supplied with accurate, highly responsive signals.

Buhler Industries has a wide range of temperature sensors which can be mounted to the top tank or side wall. The “wet” part remains in the reservoir whilst the “dry” part can be inspected thus eliminating the need to drain the reservoir.
