Why is Compressed Air Filtration Required?

In one cubic foot of atmospheric air, there are millions of particles that are potentially harmful to your machines and equipment. These particles are primarily made up of dust, bacteria, viruses, smoke, fumes, hydrocarbons, water, oil and other contaminates derived from human and industrial activities. Roughly 80% of the contaminates are so small that they will easily pass through your compressors intake filter. When this air is drawn into the compressor intake and compressed to 100 PSIG the concentration of contamination is increased eight fold. The concentrated contaminates will easily find their way into your process lines, causing frequent and expensive downtime of your pneumatic equipment or adversely affect the quality of your products. The incorporation of filtration into your compressed air system will produce benefits in both productivity and product quality.
