Air/oil separator boxes

Flow rates
Air/oil separator boxes are available for air intake rates from 1-5.5 m3/min at a compressoroperating pressure of 7 bar (0.7 MPa).


Pressure drop
The pressure drop at nominal flow rate and 7 bar (0.7 MPa) operating pressure is approx. 0.25 bar (25 KPa) when using a new element.

Pressure resistance
Air/oil separator box housings are designed for operating pressures up to either 20 bar (2 MPa) or 14 bar (1.4 MPa). Their integrated filter elements are suitable for differential pressures over 5 bar (0.5 MPa).

Filtration efficiency
The residual oil content of the compressed air at nominal flow rate and 7 bar (0.7 MPa) operating pressure is approx. 1-3 mg/m3.

Service life
The increase in flow resistance, and thus the element service life, depend on the cleanliness of the oil and the quality of the air cleaner used. A service life of several thousand hours can be achieved with a properly-functioning system.

Fitting advice
Air/oil separator boxes should be screwed by hand onto the reusable filter head in an upright position (Fig. 1) via the appropriate adapter union. We recommend fitting in a location that allows good access for servicing.
