Air/oil separators

high-quality compressed air processing

Air/oil separator elements are important quality components in the air compression process.

It is hard to imagine industrial processes without compressed air. Compressors and vacuum pumps are used in construction and mechanical engineering as well as highly sensitive sectors such as the food, pharmaceutical, electrical, chemical and medical industries.

Principle of operation

Air/oil separator elements exploit the phenomenon of coalescence, using micro-glass fibre layers to remove droplets of oil from the compressed air. This filtration process is effective right down to the sub-micron range, to keep oil consumption and oil entrainment into the compressed air networks to a minimum. These products do not remove oil vapour from the compressed air.

Air/oil separator elements can be used with all typical compressor lubricating oils, whether mineral-based, synthetic or partially synthetic.
