The reliability of compressed air filtration is paramount to the ongoing fight against problems caused through contamination entering the air system. The CompAir filter range has been constantly innovated and has become a leading technology, providing the exact balance between air quality, energy efficiency and low lifetime costs.
The reliability of compressed air filtration is paramount to the ongoing fight against problems caused through contamination entering the air system. Contamination in the form of dirt, oil and water can lead to:
Pipe scale and corrosion within pressure vessels
Damage to production equipment, air motors, air tools, valves and cylinders
Premature and unplanned desiccant replacement for adsorption dryers
The CompAir filtration range offers various products and grades of filtration to provide peace of mind whatever the air quality requirement. To meet the various requirements, CompAir filters are available in three different grades:
Type B: General Purpose Protection. It provides particle removal down to 1 micron, including water and oil aerosols.
Type C: High Efficiency Oil Removal Filtration & High Efficiency Dust Filtration. Particle removal is down to 0.01 micron, including water and oil aerosols.
Type D: Oil Vapour & Odour Removal.
Innovative features mean outstanding performance without compromise. With differential pressure that starts low and stays low, these filters offer a solution to applications that demand high performance filtration without the usual high energy running costs. Independently verified by Lloyds Register using ISO12500 and ISO8573 test methods, these products either meet or exceed the requirements of ISO8573-1.
X-Series of water separators
The X-Series of water separators provide bulk condensed water and liquid oil removal and are used to protect coalescing filters against bulk liquid contamination. Bulk liquids such as condensate, water and liquid oil are removed from the airflow through directional and centrifugal separation. Installed before a coalescing filter, the water separator can provide added protection against bulk liquid contamination enabling the filter to operate more efficiently. The X water separator range from CompAir can operate across various flow conditions and have been optimised to reduce differential pressure with very low maintenance.
CF-Series of cast filters
The CF-Series of filters efficiently removes water and oil aerosols, atmospheric dirt and solid particles, rust, pipescale and micro-organisms.
CFT Modular Filters
When compressed air is required to meet ISO8573-1 Class 1 air quality via oil free or oil lubricated compressors, the CFT Oil Vapour Removal filter is an essential component of the compressed air system. They are designed to reduce oil vapour. Compact activated carbon cartridges utilise a unique filling technique to maximise packing density of the adsorbent bed. The use of cartridges also provides trouble free maintenance, reducing system downtime.
Filter element should be changed annually to maintain optimised performance and so continue to meet international standards of air quality. It protects your downstream equipment, personnel and processes, keeps operational costs low, while increasing productivity and profitability. In short, it provided continued peace of mind.
CF-Series of flanged filters
For larger flowrate or higher pressure applications the flanged filters are available in the standard five filtration grades.
