Walmec North America has released a 5 Micron Compressed Air Filter which provides a point of use for filtration of liquids, oils, and other contaminants.
According to Walmec North America, the two stage filter is designed to work most effectively when it is placed near the point of use. It has a 5 micron rating and is available in sizes with flow ranges of 15 SCFM to 250 SCFM, and pressure ratings of up to 250 PSI. The 5 Micron Compressed Air Filter is perfect for a large variety of applications including surface preparation, paint spraying, powder coating, air powered tools, and pneumatically operated equipment.
The filter works in stages with the first stage knocking out all liquids and particles of dirt, dust, rust and scale. The second stage removes moisture, contaminants, and particles down to 5 microns. An automatic float drain then opens and expels all collected liquids when an ounce or more is collected. The system is fully automatic with no continuous air loss.
The filter has a permanently mounted differential pressure gauge and comes with mounting brackets. The pressure gauge provides a visual of the required maintenance which is done easily by installing the appropriate service kit. There is therefore no need to remove the unit from the compressed air system. An optional pressure regulator with gauge is also available.
