Cellulose Media

The original and most common media is made of natural fibers. These twisted fibers are larger and more irregular than synthetic fibers — creating more resistance to flow or pressure drop.

Synthetic Media

These man-made glass fibers are very uniform in size and shape — creating the least possible resistance to flow and providing improved efficiency to protect sensitive controls.

Par-Gel Media

A highly absorbent copolymer laminate with an affinity for water — allows hydraulic or lubrication fluid to pass freely but water is bonded to the media and forever removed from the system.

High Pressure Filters

High Pressure Filters (15P/30P Series)

Modern high pressure hydraulic systems are demanding, better controls and long component lives are expected. To deliver the high standards of performance, hydraulic components are built with tighter tolerances which increases their sensitivity to contamination. Parker high pressure filters filter out ingressed contamination before it jams a valve or scores a cylinder.  They also block pump generated debris before it gets to servo or proportional valves.  Available in simplex or duplex configurations.  Up to 3000 psi operating pressure.

High Pressure Filters (50P Series)

The 50P series filters are bowl-up, which provides several possible advantages.  The bowl-up mounting makes servicing the elements quick and easy, the top cover can simply be removed to access the element. A drain port is provided to allow oil to drain from the filter prior to element servicing which reduces the possibility of oil spillage. Optional manifold porting is available for space saving design that reduces the number of fittings and potential leak points. The porting is also designed to match the installation of many other manufacturers and meets the SAE HF4 automotive standard.  Available in simplex or duplex configurations.  Up to 5000 psi operating pressure.

World Pressure Filters

Parker engineers have developed what will soon be the industry standard in high pressure hydraulic filtration. The WPF series is rated at 7000 psi working pressure and incorporates many advanced features such as a high strength ductile iron filter head with integral indicator port and a steel bowl with standard drain port. A patented element end cap assembly that includes bypass and reverse flow valves while deformable tangs secure the element in the bowl.

Portable Filtration & Fluid Analysis

Portable Fluid Conditioning Carts (5PFCC/10PFCC Series)

Parker portable filter carts are the ideal way to prefilter and transfer fluids into reservoirs or to clean up existing systems. Fluid should always be filtered before being put into use. New fluid is not necessarily clean fluid. Most new fluids are unfit for use due to high initial contamination levels. Contamination, both particulate and water, may be added to a new fluid during processing, mixing, handling and storage. The Parker portable filter cart uses two high capacity ModuFlow™ Plus filters for long element life and better system protection. The inlet filter captures larger particles, while the outlet filter captures finer particles or removes water.

Auxiliary Filtration Systems (AFS Series)

The AFS uses a high capacity ModuFlow™ Plus filter for long element life and optimum filtration. The single element package provides a high level of filtration performance in a compact size. Free water is controlled by utilizing Parker’s Par-Gel™ element. The optimized design and rugged steel construction allow service personnel access to critical hydraulic

systems through passageways as small as 12” x 16”.

Portable Filtration Systems (Guardian)

The Guardian portable filtration system is a unique pump/motor/filter combination designed for conditioning and transferring petroleum-based and water emulsion fluids. The Guardian circulates and decontaminates the fluid in your existing system. It is suitable for any system that is sensitive to the harmful effects of fluid contamination.

Portable Purification Systems (Sentinel)

Delivering big results in a compact, lightweight package, the Sentinel is the latest in fluid purification technology from Parker. The system guards over critical hydraulic and lubrication systems to effectively remove water, solids and gases while improving equipment health, productivity and reliability. The smallest in Parker’s family of oil purifiers, the Sentinel’s automatic operation minimizes energy consumption while extending the usable life of fluids. Equipped with Parker’s IQAN MD3 platform control system for advanced monitoring.

Portable Purification Systems (PVS 185/600/1200/1800/2700)

Contaminated oil is drawn into the Parker Portable Purification System by a vacuum where it passes through an in-line low watt density heater where the oil is heated to a temperature of 150° F. The oil then enters the distillation column where it is exposed to the vacuum through the use of special dispersal elements. This increases the exposed surface area of the oil and converts the liquid water to vapor, which is then drawn through the condenser by the vacuum pump. The water-free oil falls to the bottom of the column and is removed by a lube oil pump. This pump forces the dry oil through a final particulate removal filter. Clean oil passes out of the unit, back to the reservoir and into the system.

Submicronic Removal Fluid Purification Systems (SMR Series)

The SMR contains patented Balanced Charge Agglomeration (BCA™) technology, which maintains hydraulic and lubricating fluids in optimum condition while preventing/removing the build-up of sludge and varnish. The system is available in a PLC or simplified control version. BCA™ technology does not remove water, however with the removal of thousands of submicron particles, the majority of sites where water can readily attach are mitigated.

Fluid Analysis (Par-Test)

Fluid analysis has proven to be a critical tool for any preventive maintenance program. A comprehensive fluid analysis program can help prevent major hydraulic or lube oil system failures. Par-Test is a complete laboratory analysis performed on a small volume of fluid. Two types of services are offered through Par-Test, a water base fluid analysis kit or a petroleum base fluid analysis kit. For both types of services the Par-Test kit includes a pre-cleaned glass bottle, mailing container with pre-addressed label, and the sample information data sheet. Par-Test sampling procedures follow the National Fluid Power Association standard (NFPA T2.9.1-1972) and the American National Standards Institute Standard (ANSI B93.13-1972) for extracting samples from a fluid power system.
