Transmission metal wear particles are damaging your hydraulic system.


Most skid steers have a single reservoir and filter for both hydraulic and transmission fluid. This filter is unable to clean the particles under 20 microns in size that cause most wear and equipment failure.   It's the same story with engine oil and fuel filters.

Oil gets dirty

long before it wears out.* 


Your fluid filters do not 

capture the sub 20 micron particles that cause the

greatest wear damage.**

Bear Trap™ magnetic filter pads buddy up with your transmission, oil and fuels filters to extend the life of your equipment by trapping even sub micron particles.

The Bear Trap™ Flex-Fit design and powerful rare earth magnet configuration penetrate deeply into your filters to trap and hold damaging grit.

They are reusable over and over again.  Equipment owners have trusted Bear Trap™ for over 15 years. 



After years of testing, the world's largest mining equipment now use magnetic filtration to double and triple maintenance intervals and double equipment life.  Hydraulic fluid, engine and gear oils, transmission fluid, diesel and coolant are magnetically filtered.  Operating and asset replacement capital costs are reduced.


Pipelines, refineries, petrochemical, ship loading and manufacturing facilities around the world rely on solutions from a sister company, Black Powder Solutions.  Magnetic filtration systems extend pump, compressor and equipment component life up to 2-3 times.  Lube oils and fluid life  are also extended.
