Installed to reduce or remove contaminants from compressed air; water separators and filters are essential to the health and performance of a compressed air network. The primary function of any filter is to improve air quality, although modern demands mean this performance should not be at the expense of energy. Using high quality compressed air to supply the nitrogen generators, ensures long and trouble-free service and guarantees optimum performance.
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:
The Gardner Denver filter range provides clean, high-quality air as defined by ISO 8573.1:2010 and are certified by a third party under ISO 12500-1.
GDFT is matched to all inlet parameters maintaining effective operation for 12 months. Correct sizing ensures seasonal variations in temperature do not affect delivered air quality
GDFT provides “Technically Oil Free Air” when used in conjunction with water separators and coalescing filters
Tested in accordance with ISO8573-5 and 3rd party performance validated by a third party
The benefit of energy saving without compromised performance is achieved through a number of unique and patented design features which minimise differential pressure. The Gardner Denver compressed air filter range combine filter housing and element to work together in maximising energy savings and provide low lifetime costs without compromising on air quality. Large range of filtration grades to match the applications air quality needs.
Annual service is easy and clean to carry out thanks to and easy to grip housing bowl and no need for the user to directly handle the contaminated element. The pressure drop indicator monitors the efficiency of the filter and indicates when pressure drop is getting too high and element replacement is recommended.
When compressed air is required to meet ISO8573-1 Class 1 air quality via oil free or oil lubricated compressors the GDFT Oil Vapour Removal filter is an essential component of the compressed air system.
GDFT Oil Vapour Removal filters are designed to reduce oil vapour and also overcome the issues of traditional loose filled carbon towers.
Manufactured from extruded aluminium, the GDFT is smaller and lighter than equivalent carbon towers. Compact activated carbon cartridges utilise a unique filling technique to maximise packing density of the adsorbent bed. Retained to prevent movement, 100% of the activated carbon bed is then utilised during operation, guaranteeing performance, whilst the heavy attrition, dusting and blocked particulate filters associated with carbon tower designs is eliminated.
The use of cartridges also provides trouble free maintenance, reducing system downtime.
