Abstract: This paper deals with the FEA implementation for analysis and optimization of pressure line filter for 250bar. The main aim is to reduce the cost of the products without compromising on the quality of the output. Using the optimum resources possible in designing the hydraulic products can effect this reduction in the cost of the hydraulic product. One way of doing it will be the optimizing the volume of material utilized for building the structure. An attempt has been made in this direction to reduce the volume of material. So here we consider an industrial application project consisting of mass minimization of a pressure line filter. This filter has to compensate the forces acting on the body and has to fulfill certain critical constraints. ANSYS has been used for this analysis which uses finite element method for solution. The methodology followed in this work is comparison of stresses induced in the filter body used for construction of body of the pressure line filter. These stresses are compared to yield stress and considering minimum factor of safety in range of 2 to 3.
