Compressed Air Filters

Replacement in line air filters and elements

Compressed air filters, sometimes known as compressed air in line filters look relativity small, but they actually perform a very important task in a compressed air system. These filters can be seen as the first line of defence in removing unwanted participles and contaminates in the produced compressed air.

Compressed air filters should be changed at least once a year. A dirty compressed air filter element can reduce your air compressors efficiency, cause pressure drops, increase the risk of breakdowns and impact on your energy costs! In a compressed air system, air filters do a very important job. They make sure that the compressed air is free from particulates, oil residue, rust from pipework and dust. Breathing air filters can also remove carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.

Replacing an element in a compressed air system is a relatively easy operation and should form part of your regular maintenance program. It is recommended to replace a compressed air filter element is replaced every 4000hr to 8000hrs or at least once a year. A filter may look clean and unused, but left unchanged over 12 months it will become ineffective.

Our top 5 tips for compressed air filter use are

  1. Replace between 4000hr to 8000hrs or at least once a year
  2. Filters remove oil, dust and any other particulates from the delivered compressed air
  3. Dirty air can cause problems with air tools and downstream equipment
  4. Used filters can cause pressure drops and increased demand on your compressor
  5. All of the above add to energy use and increase costs
