Untreated compressed air always contains contaminants because of the nature of the gas and how it is produced. The need for air treatment basically results from 3 characteristics of compressed air.
Added by the compressor installation through oil lubricated compressors (oil), adsorption dryers and activated carbon filters (dirt), piping network and vessels (pipescale).
Trash in, trash out: oil vapors from car exhausts and industrial processes, atmospheric dirt and micro-organisms get sucked in by the compressor. As with water, their concentration – and thus side-effects – increases significantly after compression.
Pneumatech offers you a comprehensive line-up of filter solutions. For general applications we provide oil coalescing, particulate and oil vapor filters in a wide range of flows and pressures. We can also support with breathing air, silicone-free, sterile and process filtration.
