Compressed Air Filtration and Drainage Solutions

Compressed air filtration and drainage systems are essential components of any compressed air system. They help to ensure that the air being used is clean and dry, which can prevent a variety of problems, including:

Equipment malfunction: Contaminants in compressed air can damage pneumatic tools and machinery, leading to downtime and repair costs.
Product contamination: Contaminants can also contaminate finished products, making them unusable or unsafe.
Increased maintenance: Contaminants can accelerate wear and tear on pneumatic equipment, requiring more frequent maintenance.
Compressed air filters remove contaminants from compressed air by trapping them in their filtering media. There are two main types of compressed air filters: particulate filters and oil mist filters.

Particulate filters remove solid particles from compressed air. These particles can be anything from dust and dirt to rust and debris. Particulate filters are typically made of pleated paper or metal mesh. The size of the particles that a particulate filter can remove is determined by the micron rating of the filter. A higher micron rating indicates that the filter can remove smaller particles.

Oil mist filters remove oil vapors from compressed air. These vapors can be caused by the use of an oil-lubricated air compressor or by the condensation of water vapor in the air. Oil mist filters are typically made of activated carbon or synthetic fibers.

In addition to filters, compressed air drainage systems are also important for preventing problems. Drainage systems collect condensate, which is water vapor that condenses out of compressed air as it cools down. Contaminants in the condensate can clog filters and damage equipment.

By using the right combination of filters and drainage systems, you can ensure that your compressed air system is providing clean, dry air that will not cause problems for your equipment or products.
