STERLING compressed air filter elements are designed to fit housings from a wide range of popular manufacturers and are built and tested to recognised industry standards, so providing a value-for-money replacement for manufacturers’ originals.

The elements are well packaged in individual boxes and clearly labelled; in addition each item is ‘pad printed’ on the end cap with a permanently visible part number to avoid costly mistakes and to ease re-ordering.

3rd party elements


Manufactured by experienced OEM specialists, this is a top quality product from STERLING's extensive stock. STERLING lists over 1000 lines of 3rd party filter stock. Much of it is available off the shelf, but for the sake of economy we can’t hold stock of some less popular lines & sizes.


However, for those who plan their service schedules in advance we are ALWAYS happy to factory-order any item in advance.

You can talk to us anytime about any special requirements. As always, we'll do our best to accommodate your particular needs.

finding the correct replacement

With so many stock lines in STERLING's warehouse, and literally thousands of OEM and aftermarket branded element product codes, it can be a nightmare to find the correct fit - especially for those less common types.

We've invested countless hours into assembling one of the most comprehensive databases of compressed air filter elements in the world. With only a partial product code you can instantly narrow down many potential matches to just a few. Add a brand name and there's the appropriate STERLING code. A personalised access code for STERLING's on-line FilterFinder is available to our filter customers, totally free of charge. Simply request your access code from the sales office.

Enter either the complete OEM code or the partial code within wild card characters - as in the example *045AA*

This would return the STERLING part code CSEV045AA

Alternatively, to check what your stock of STERLING elements will fit, enter the part code and submit.

The FilterFinder returns a list of all compatible matches
