Compressed air filters are used downstream of the compressor to remove contaminants like particulates, condensate and lubricant. There are three types of filters:
- Particulate filters remove solid particles
- Coalescing filters remove lubricant and moisture.
- Adsorbent filters remove very fine contaminants.
As a general practice, a particulate filter should be installed after a desiccant dryer to remove desiccant “fines.” A coalescing filter should be installed before a desiccant dryer to prevent fouling of the desiccant bed. Additional filtration may also be needed to minimize pressure drop and energy consumption and meet requirements for specific end uses. We offer a variety of filters to meet your needs.
