Balston Vacuum Pump Filters

Balston Vacuum Pump Exhaust Filters

Parker Balston Vacuum Pump Filter Remove all visible oil mist from vacuum pump exhaust, even when it is saturated with oil. The exhaust gas may be recycled to the process or the pumps may exhaust into a clean work area, eliminating the need to run ductwork and exhaust pipes outside. The high efficiency filter cartridge continuously drains the collected liquid, allowing the user to recover expensive, inert lubricating fluid and resulting in extremely long filter cartridge life. Filters are available for pumps with flow ranging from 3 to 850 cfm.

Features and Benefits:

  • Completely eliminate oil mist and smoke from vacuum pump exhaust 
  • Prevent oil accumulation in ductwork 
  • Recover expensive lubricating oil, and return filtered oil automatically to the pump 
  • Reduce pump noise 
  • Protect chemical scrubbers from oil, and reduce the frequency of costly maintenance
  • Eliminate potential OSHA and EPA violations

Balston Vacuum Pump Inlet Filters

Constructed of 304 stainless steel for hazardous/ corrosive applications, low vacuum aluminum or steel housings are recommended. Two different filter cartridge designs are offered: The grade 30 filter cartridges offer high efficiency removal of relatively large quantities of solids and liquids to prevent damage to the pump and loss of valuable or hazardous material. The grade 102 filter cartridges prevent oil backstreaming from the pump to the evacuated chamber, while at the same time protect the pump from damage by submicron particles at a low concentration.

Features and Benefits:

  • Prevent oil backstreaming
  • Protect the vacuum pump from damage by solids and liquids
  • Increase productivity be eliminating costly shutdown time and maintenance
  • Prevent loss of valuable or hazardous materials
  • Extremely long filter life
  • Superior chemical and solvent resistance


  • General lab vacuum chambers
  • Heat treating vacuum systems
  • Microscope evacuation systems
  • Semiconductor process
  • Chemical processing
  • Laser optics
