Parker Balston Filtration Instruments

Balston Filters keep dirt, water, and oil out of compressed air, protecting your equipment and delicate instruments. For 0.01 micron particles and droplets, Balston filters eliminate these pollutants with a 99.99 percent effectiveness rate. As soon as liquid enters the filter, it is sent to an automated drain. This enables the filter to remove liquids indefinitely without sacrificing efficiency or flow capacity.


Recognised as the market leader, Parker Hannifin Balston filters housings and filter elements are manufactured to a very high standard.

Balston Filter products are available to suit many industrial applications including units specifically designed for the analytical, food and beverage, oil and petrochemical, and water industries.

  • Compressed Air and Gas Filters
    • Balston Coalescing Compressed Air Filters protect your equipment and delicate instruments from the dirt, water, and oil usually found in compressed air.
  • Sample Analyzer Filters
    • Balston Gas and Liquid Sample Analyzer Filters protect analyzers from sample impurities by removing solids and liquids from gases with 99.999% efficiency at 0.01 micron or lower.
  • Vacuum Pump Filters
    • Remove all visible oil mist from vacuum pump exhaust, even when it is saturated with oil.
  • Sterile Air Filters
    • Balston Sterile Air Filtration System will safeguard your operations from rust, pipescale, water, oil, and bacteria. These filters will remove contaminants at a very high efficiency – up to 99.99% for 0.01 micron
  • Steam Filters
    • Steam filters for hospitals eliminate instrument staining, spotting, and rusting caused by wet or dirty steam.
  • High Pressure Natural Gas
    • Specifically designed to remove suspended liquids and dirt from pipeline natural gas, the housings are ASME Code Stamped up to 1440 psig.
  • Disposable Filter Elements
    • Disposable Filter Unit (DFU) which incorporates our extensive media capability with a small, inexpensive, disposable housing.
  • Replacement Filter Elements
    • LP Cartridges:
      • Designed to filter liquids with high solids contents. Have an integral prefilter and an external support structure (flow direction is inside-to-outside).
    • X-Type Cartridges:
      • Used for solids and relatively large amounts of suspended liquids in gases. Provide excellent chemical resistance, temperature resistance to 300°F (150°C), and good mechanical handing properties. These cartridges have thick walls for improved coalescing efficiency. Should be used whenever permitted by housing internal volume. Fluorocarbon Resin Binder.
    • Q-Type Cartridges:
      • Used for solids and trace amounts of liquids in gases. Also ideal for liquid service and removal of particulates. Similar to X-Type cartridges in chemical and temperature resistance. Fluorocarbon Resin Binder.
    • H-Type Cartridges:
      • Recommended for oxygen service or when X-Type or 0-Type are unsuitable. H-Type cartridges have temperature resistance to 1000°F (538°C) in dry gas, 100°F (38°C) in liquid . Quartz construction.
    • M Type Sintered Stainless Steel Cartridges:
      • Designed for applications having heavy loading of solid contaminants. These cartridges are also suitable for removing heavy, viscous liquids from gases and as prefilters to high efficiency final filters. Constructed of 316 stainless steel with molded viton end seals.
    • Vapor removal:
      • Used to remove trace quantities of oil vapor. Activated carbon sandwiched between two layers of rnicrofiber filter media absorbs oil vapor. Must be prefiltered with Grade DX and Grade BX. Max. operating temp. is 180°F/82°C.
