Compressed air filters are widely used in industry sphere & are also referred as line filters.

These air filters are used to eradicate air, oil, water & other contaminates from compressed air after compression has taken place. Unwanted particles travelling through compressed air stream can be removed in different ways. A pneumatically operated machine suffers major damage due to unwanted dirt particles, water, oil or moisture. These contaminations of the air stream can cause severe performance abjection & increase the maintenance cost. To cut down the costs & damages compressed air filters are used to increase the productivity & performance. There are different types of Air filters. These filters are designed in a way to remove all contaminations from air supply. 3 Micron per filters are exclusively used to remove solid particles. 1 & 0.01 Micron coalescing filters is used as oil separators. Activated carbon filters are used to eliminate oil vapors & odors. These filters are used in combination with other instruments. Filtering process always results in a pressure drop & energy is lost in air system. Finer filters also cause greater pressure drop & gets blocked quickly. Because of these results filters need to be changed frequently resulting in higher costs. Accordingly, filters must be shaped in such a way that they are able to handle the normal flow & have a greater capacity to manage pressure drop due to a degree of blockage.
