Hydro Carbon Filter Cartridges

Hydro Carbon Filter Cartridges are engineered to remove oil, gasoline, diesel fuel, solvents, sheen, and other hydrocarbons from water in a single pass by permanently bonding them to our absorbent media, without significant pressure drop even when the cartridges have been fully saturated.

Cartridges are designed to offer effective removal of oil from water in either a conventional 2.5″ or 4.5″ outer diameter size design. The oil free technology removes oily sheen, synthetic and natural oils, BTEX, PCB’s, solvents and organically bound metals. This series of filters offer maximum oil absorbing capacity at the lowest cost.
