Replacements for ProBond & Global Cartridge Filter

Resin Bonded Cartridge Filters

ProBond resin bonded filter cartridges are used for capturing semi-solids in heavier viscosity fluids such as inks, paints, coatings, glycol, wax and more.  Resin bonded cartridge filters can withstand a high differential pressure and high temperatures without sacrificing filter efficiencies.

RABondRABond Cross Section

We have resin bonded cartridge filters to replace Parker ProBond Cartridge Filters. The unique manufacturing process of these cartridge filters produces a rigid fixed-matrix structure with true graded-porosity. This maximizes contaminant-holding capacity while preventing the unloading behavior that is often problematic in competitive products.

Also available are resin bonded filters with grooved outer surface greatly expands the filter’s effective surface area and further increases the contaminant holding capacity. The synthetic fiber/phenolic resin binder offers well-proven performance operating under challenging conditions of high temperatures, high fluid viscosities, and high differential pressures. The GRU-V is ideal for paints, coatings, oils, and many other demanding applications.

Dirt Holding Capacity (DHC) Testing

Factory testing of 125µm ProBond and 125µm RAB revealed the RAB to have higher dirt holding capacity.  25µm ProBond and 25µm RAB revealed very similar dire holding capacities.  Flow rates through each 10″ filter cartridge was 35 LPM.  Both had similar clean differential pressure drops 1.3 vs 1.2 psid respectively.  Known quantities of contamination were injected and filter differential pressure were observed until 46 psid was achieved.
