A new generation of the CristalProfi greenline external filters was welcomed by the JBL Community but they also asked what the difference to the previous one was. After all, the filter looks fairly identical at first glance. There are some visual changes (black closing clips), but also a fundamental change in the pre-filter system, which leads to an enlargement of the filter surface and an extension in service life.
Instead of smaller externally arranged pre-filter mats in the filter basket there is now a large one-piece filter mat which is twice as large. This way the pre-filter doesn’t clog as easily, even when there is a considerable amount of dirt, and the pre-filter doesn’t need to be cleaned as often.
Anyone can convert their “old“ CristalProfi greenline external filters from the 01 generation to a comparable filter of the 02 generation very easily at home.
Just remove for that the old distributor plate and the old JBL CombiBloc CristalProfi e . Now the new filter basket ( JBL CombiBloc II CristalProfi e ) can be inserted and put into operation without any further seals. That’s it. If you want to complete the effect you also can purchase the black closing clips as spare parts ( JBL clip for casing ) and install them.
