Oil Absorbent Bag Filters


Innovative FiltrexTMmanufactures two different types of Oil Absorbent Bag Filters and in different sizes. These Absorbent bags are made from multiple layers of polypropylene micro fiber nonwoven that attract (oleophilic) oil droplets within the nonwoven matrix.

The degree of effectiveness of these bags is dependent on the type of oil you are trying to remove as well as the differential pressure across the bag filter media. The greater the differential pressure the greater the propensity will be for the oil droplet to deform, and migrate downstream which you don’t want.

For this reason, we encourage you to use gauges on your housing to decrease your risk of forcing oil droplets downstream.


  • Very high flow rates at low initial pressure differential
  • Nominal particle retention rates: 1 μm – 100 μm
  • Bag sealing collar from PP
  • Excellent chemical compatibility
  • Fiber migration and extractable free media treatment
  • Pleated matrix ensures:
  • High dirt holding capacity
  • Long lifetime
  • High oil adsorbing capability (up to 2.5 more than standard oil adsorbers)
  • Recommended change out pressure differential 1.2 bar – 2.0 bar
  • Typical flow rates * Size 1: 12m3/h * Size 2: 22m3/h
