Dust and dirt contaminating the compressor oil can lead to damage to or performance losses for rotors and their housings. Since the same oil lubricates the compressor element bearings, damage to these vital components could potentially lead to rotor contact and service failure.
Compressor air filters have high performance and are composed of specific filter elements. Features include high-grade filtration efficiency, temperature resistance, and resistance to synthetic oils. Built to withstand high operating pressures, high quality replacement oil separator elements can offer extremely low oil carryover combined with low pressure differentials. This means better quality air and minimal operating costs through lower oil consumption and longer service life of fine compressed air filters installed downstream.
