Parker Hannifin (Twin Filter) Oilblock™ absorption cartridges are specifically designed and manufactured for the high efficiencyremoval of free dispersed oils from water. The cartridges are being successfully applied in the oil and gas industry, bilge water treatment systems, contaminated surface water run-off and other industrial process applications. The Oilblock absorption cartridge is filled with a unique co-polymer. This element absorbs the hydrocarbons very fast and actual molecular bonds the oil. The water flows radial into the cartridge and the absorption media immediate encapsulate the oil and will in time solidifies. The Oilblock cartridge will fit into Twin Filter standard cartridge filter units.

The standard Oilblock cartridges will absorb 2ltr of oil before it reach its change out differential pressure of 2.5 bar. This unique cartridge blocks after saturating which is a very simple and effective indication for change out prevent any bypass of oil.
