ICB™ Filters are manufactured to remove the dissolved oxidation molecules that accumulate and cause mechanical problems in bearings, seals, and servo valves.

ICB™ Filters are manufactured to remove dissolved oxidation molecules that accumulate and cause mechanical problems in bearings, seals, and servo valves. Based on ion exchange technology, the latest chemistry and materials are combined with precision robotic welding to offer robust and high-performing filters. With so many benefits beyond acid and particulate removal, ICB™ Filters offer a step change in oil performance, protecting system reliability and production.

ICB™ Filter features and benefits 

  • Industry-leading ion-exchange filters that offer optimal performance in the removal of acids, varnish, and dissolved oxidation molecules responsible for slow or sticking servo valves, bearing deposits, bearing failures, and other mechanical issues that would otherwise result in production losses
  • Removes the underlying cause of varnish and existing deposits by restoring fluid solubility, shifting chemical equilibrium back towards the original fluid condition
  • 100% effective under normal turbine operating conditions when the varnish is dissolved in the oil
  • Restores fluid’s electrical properties, protecting mechanical components
  • Creates stability within lubricant and fluid systems, mitigating premature deterioration
  • Completes stainless-steel construction, featuring robotic spiral welding, which provides optimal filter integrity (filter pressure tested to 150 psid)
  • Compatible with EHC fluids and turbine lubricants

Despite the excellent lubricating and safety properties of phosphate ester lubricants, many turbine and Electro-Hydraulic Control (EHC) users struggle with their maintenance.
Resistivity is a critical performance indicator for phosphate ester (PE) uid quality. Low resistivity values are associated with electro kinetic wear, a common failure mechanism...
Water is the most common and damaging contaminant found in hydraulic and lubricating systems.
