Compressed Air Filters
Last Update 10 Feb 2022
Pollutants often seen in compressed air are:
- Lubricating oil carry over from air compressors;
- Atmospheric corrosive gases inhaled by the air compressor;
- Aerosols and vapours;
- Solid particles and rust from air main and receiver;
- Solid particles drawn in by the air compressor.
Often the effect of high temperatures and pressures will concentrate these
contaminants, forming acidic condensate. This condensate will cause corrosion
and problems for pneumatic equipment and quality problems for paint spraying etc.
Also, the oil carried over from the air compressor is not usually suitable for
lubricating downstream equipment and must be removed.
Protected filter head and bowl threads to allow easy bowl removal for element replacement.
The large cross section of flow channels ensures reduced pressure drop.
Aluminum filter bodies are anodised inside and outside to prevent corrosion. External surfaces are powder coated.
Pressure relief device to allow safe removal of the filter bowl.
Hexagonal filter bowl clamp ring for easy of bowl removal.
Stainless steel inner and outer supports; large surface area and in-depth bed filtration; double (inner and outer) polyester needle felt sock suitable; push on element with double o-ring; five cartridge; silicone free manufacturing.
