1 EPF iprotect . (Ecological Pressure filter ). High Pressure Filters Max 700 I/min - 450 bar A compact, cost effective Pressure filter solution Designed with the iprotect patented filtration technology The Parker EPF iprotect (Ecological High Pressure filter ) is designed to provide high quality filtration of hydraulic systems, providing new possibilities to reduce the cost of ownership by improving their productivity and profitability. A radical, innovative approach was applied with the design of the EPF iprotect , suitable for a flow capacity up to 700 l/min at 450. bar working Pressure . A new patented design of the filter element allows integration of the bypass valve and element core as re-usable parts in the filter bowl. Product Features: This makes the product fool proof The patented element design guarantees the quality of filtration, as there is no risk of forgetting to re-install re-usable parts. which directly impacts the oil cleanliness level as the usage of pirate type after market filters with unknown quality of filter media is excluded.
2 With less space being available for filters, Parker has taken on board This in-build safety has a direct positive impact on the productivity the requirement to provide more and profitability of equipment. compact solutions. A unique feature Guaranteed quality of filtration is the filter element remains inside the filter bowl when changing the filter More Compact Solutions are possible element. This can save over 500mm filter element remains in filter bowl during filter service of space envelope in comparison with Reduce waste of 50%. traditional high Pressure filters. No risk of mistakes due to monkey-proof design Unique OEM branding opportunities Easy to integrate into hydraulic manifold solutions EPF iprotect . High Pressure Filters Features Advantages Benefits Patented filter element Avoid use of non-genuine parts Guaranteed quality of filtration filter element remains in filter bowl Less space needed to More compact solutions are possible change/service filter Reduce service time for filter over 40%.
3 Environmentally-friendly design Reduces environmental waste over 50% Lower disposal cost Service-friendly product design No handling of loose re-usable parts No risk of making mistakes during change of element Bypass valve integral part of filter bowl Easy to integrate in manifold systems More compact and lower cost of manifold (only one cavity is needed). Lower Pressure lost across filter Saving energy, improving system efficiency Wide range of differential Continuous feedback of condition Optimizing filter element life Pressure indicators filter elements Contributes to scheduled maintenance Typical Applications Mobile working hydraulics Mobile drive system Pilot line filtration Servo controls Reverse flow valve applications Industrial working hydraulics Control systems The Parker EPF iprotect series . patented bypass valve technology Bypass settings are available up based on differential Pressure to 7 bar or completely blocked in measurement across the filter conjunction with patented, high element.

Protecting your system and the environment Protect your system Easier to integrate A new patented design of the filter performance and profit Parker has set the element allows integration of the The new iprotect trend to integrate bypass valve and element core as generation of filter filtration into re-usable parts in the filter bowl. elements provide high manifolds. This results in cost reduction when filtration performance With Parker's EPF integrating the high Pressure filter in combined with patented iprotect we have manifold type solutions. But it also technology. The bespoke taken the design one reduces the waste when changing design prevents the use step further.
6 The filter element by over 50% as of pirate type alternatives. Only one cavity is the element core is an integral part needed to accomodate the filter of the filter bowl. Less space instead of two, this is because the The design of the EPF iprotect , needed to re-usable bypass valve is integrated is unique, there is no need to accommodate into the filter bowl, reducing re-install any re-usable parts as the filter space and cost. with some other filters in the market.
