Air, oil, and separator filters are essential components of screw compressors, which are widely used in various industrial applications.
Air filters are designed to remove dust, dirt, and other contaminants from the air that enters the compressor, ensuring clean and efficient operation. These filters are typically made of a pleated material that provides a large surface area for trapping contaminants. They come in different grades of filtration, from coarse to fine, depending on the level of purity required for the application.
Oil filters are responsible for removing contaminants from the lubricating oil that circulates through the compressor. These filters are crucial for preventing wear and tear on the compressor’s internal components, prolonging its service life. Oil filters are usually of the spin-on type.
Air oil separator filters are designed to remove oil from the compressed air before it enters the air system. These filters are typically made of a coalescing material that traps oil droplets as they pass through, allowing clean air to flow through the system. Separator filters are essential for maintaining the quality of compressed air. It is generally used in spin-on and flanged type.
