Parker’s J-Series Filters are designed to filter contaminants such as rust, pipe scale, compressor lube oil and water from compressed gases. These filters are often used in high-pressure compressed natural gas (CNG) systems, not only as inter-stage filters in the multi-stage compression of the gas, but also in the storage and delivery of the gas for CNG-powered vehicles.
Parker’s varied media choices remove up to 99.995% of both solid and liquid aerosols, and contaminants as small as 0.01mi in size. An activated carbon media is also available, which removes oil vapor. This stage of filtration is often used as the final filter before the storage of high-pressure breathing air used by scuba divers, firefighters and others who use portable breathing devices.
The filter housings and the replaceable elements used in this product line have an extremely robust construction, specially designed for use in system pressures up to 5,000psig. Five housing sizes and two thread styles (NPT or SAE) are available with connections ranging from 1/4in to 2in, temperatures up to 350°F and flows up to 26,000ft³/min at 5,000psig.
