What are the commonly used filter elements for air compressors

pageview:17 2023.11.10

         Air compressor is a commonly used industrial equipment used to compress gas into high-pressure gas. Due to the presence of various particles, moisture, and oil in the air, these impurities can have a negative impact on the working efficiency of the air compressor. Therefore, air compressors are often used in air filter elements and oil gas separation filter elements to ensure the quality and cleanliness of the gas.

        Air filter element: This filter element is installed near the air inlet of the air compressor and is mainly used to filter large particulate impurities in the air, such as dust, stone chips, and sand particles. It can prevent these particles from entering the interior of the compressor, reduce the risk of wear and failure, and protect other components of the compressor from damage.
        Oil gas separation filter element: There is often a certain amount of oil in the air, which may come from suspended particles in the air, or oil mist and lubricating oil generated by the compressor itself. The function of the oil gas separation filter element is to filter out these oil components from the air, maintaining the dryness and cleanliness of the compressed air. This helps to prevent oil from entering pneumatic equipment, affecting its normal operation, and helps to extend the service life of the equipment.
