How it Works:
Compressed air enters the housing,flowing from the inside of the coalescing element outwards. Oil or water aerosols enter the element interior, are intercepted by a microglass filter media, extracted from the air, and agglomerate into increasingly larger droplets as they are driven to the outside of the cartridge by the velocity of the air. These larger droplets once formed, drain off the element exterior and fall by gravity into the housing sump.
• Utilizes a pleated, multilayered microglass coalescing media to offer more
filter surface area and a longer life.
• Offers a lower pressure drop. Most prefilters are sized for an initial clean pressure drop of less than 1 psid.
• Housing design pressure ratings from 150 to 5000 psig.
• Housing connection sizes from 1/2" to 24".
• Coalescing elements rated for removal of oil and water aerosols and solid particles, 0.3 micron and up at a 99% minimum removal efficiency. Most dryer systems will typically require a prefilter be rated for 0.3 to 1 micron.
