Air Treatment

Filtration

Air leaving a compressor normally has a high-water content as well as some oil carry over, and to remove these impurities, filters will need to be added to the compressed air system.

Depending on the application for the compressed air, different filtration levels are required:

  • Compressed intake filters remove over 80% of particulate contaminants to 0.3 micron.
  • Particulate filters are used to remove dust and particles from the air.
  • Coalescing filters oil, water aerosols, dust and dirt particles to 0.01 micron.
  • Activated carbon filters remove odours and vapours.
  • Bacteria filters remove bacteria.

Filtration is particularly crucial in industries such as food and beverage, medical and pharmaceutical.

Dryers

Compressed air dryers are designed to remove water from your compressed air system preventing water being carried into your process equipment, which can often cause disastrous results. Whilst the concept is simple, it can be challenging making sure that moisture is correctly removed under all climatic conditions, regardless of the amount of air being used. A good understanding of your working environment and the compressed air system is essential to get the correct dryer specified and installed.

Condensate Management

All air compressors produce water condensate as part of the compression process. In an oil-free compressor, the condensate is essentially water, but in an oil lubricated compressor the condensate will contain some of the lubrication oil. This may be a small amount of oil, but this still falls under the remit of polluting matter, making it illegal to dispose of down the drain if left untreated.

Air Energy can supply and install equipment to remove this condensate from your compressed air system for you to treat onsite, saving your company money and ensuring that you remain compliant with all relevant legislation.
