Contaminated compressed air systems increase operating costs by robbing the air system of useful power. This results in reduced efficiency and higher maintenance and repair costs. These filters are designed with housings that have larger flow areas to ensure low pressure drop and to provide easy installation, operation, and maintenance. The filter element is manufactured using a superior matrix blended fiber that causes a very consistent pore size within the media, significantly improving performance. A 96+% void space minimizes pressure drop,, while maintaining high capture rates and filtration efficiencies across a wide range of flows, 20 scfm to 21,250 scfm.
