CompAir has launched two air purification ranges for compressed air systems, the CF range of air filters and X range of water separators.
They meet ISO 8573-1:2010, the international standards governing compressed air purity. Furthermore, from an aftermarket perspective, the dedicated air treatment facilities ensure those requiring service parts can have these sourced and supplied quickly.
The CF cast aluminium range of compressed air filters deliver flow rates of up to 45 m3/min, depending on requirements. There is also a range of CF flanged filters available for applications with higher flows, providing flow rates of up to 516 m3/min.
As a result of customer feedback, the filters feature a differential pressure indicator, allowing operators to monitor any pressure drops in line with the guidelines set out in ISO 5001 and ISO 11011. Other features include a proprietary coating, applied to both the inside and outside surfaces of the filters, to provide corrosion protection against harsh industrial environments, as well as an ergonomic bowl design with a ‘no-touch’ filter element that ensures replacements can be undertaken quickly and easily.
The X range of water separators are designed to remove the majority of bulk liquid contamination from compressed air. Available in flow rates of up to 200 m3/min, the X range aims to reduce differential pressure with minimal maintenance.
Both the CF range of air filters and X range of water separators are covered by CompAir’s Assure warranty. The only stipulation to the Assure warranty is that the products are maintained in line with the user manual, using genuine CompAir parts.
Keith Atkinson, Product Manager for Air Treatment & Gas Generation at CompAir, said: “Air filtration and water separation are critical elements of any compressed air system. Not only can contamination lead to spoiled and damaged products, but also inefficient production processes that impact on a business’ operational costs. A compressed air system can be a significant investment. Air filters and water separators should not be compromised, as they are a key means of ensuring the quality and efficiency of the whole system.”
