Parker Hannifin the global leader in motion and control technologies has announced a new addition to its filter range. The GMF iprotect® Series has been designed especially for applications calling for cost-effective but quality filtration at flows of up to 600 L/min and 70 bar working pressure. The design is based on the EPF iprotect high pressure filter series, but allows more compact solutions as the filter element remains in the filter bowl during changes of filter element. The patented iprotect elements are supplied with quantumfiber™ filter media, which contains a broad filtration area providing low pressure loss, long service life and maximum protection – even in cold and dynamic conditions. The GMF iprotect is ideally suited for mobile and industrial equipment.
The GMF features Parker’s iprotect family of filter elements representing the next generation of patented filter elements for three readily defined reasons
Firstly, due to the patented construction of every iprotect element, the quality of filtration is guaranteed, as no ‘pirate spare parts’ can be used. This ensures that the iprotect element remains the truly protective ‘DNA’ of hydraulic & lubrication systems.
Secondly, in addition to providing ultimate protection to the system, the iprotect family ensures that any environmental impact is minimised, by the retention and reuse of the filter element support core. Finally, ‘iprotect’ helps protect the environment by reducing environmental waste, typically, by 50%.
