A new Wallman-type ordered compactification γX is constructed using maximal CZ-filters (which have filter bases obtained from increasing and decreasing zero sets) as the underlying set. A necessary and sufficient condition is given for γX to coincide with the Nachbin compactification βX; in particular γX=βX whenever X has the discrete order. The Wallman ordered compactification ωX equals γX whenever X is a subspace of Rn. It is shown that γX is always T1, but can fail to be T1-ordered or T2.
