Air filters bring extra energy savings

Paul Boughton

Compressed air filter elements are designed to remove oil and water in liquid and aerosol states, atmospheric dirt and particulates.

Now Parker domnick hunter's new OIL-Xplus ADVANTAGE air filters include pleated media construction and improved drainage material. Pleated media reduces the differential pressure over the element's service life, reducing operational costs and energy usage.

This is because any restriction to air flow within a filter housing and element reduces the system's pressure. To generate compressed air large amounts of electrical energy are consumed, so pressure losses within the system convert directly into costs of wasted energy - the higher the pressure loss, the higher the energy cost.

The new replacement element brings compressed air users the lowest total cost of ownership available, reduced CO2 emissions with the lowest carbon footprint and guaranteed continuous air quality. The element is designed for simple retrofitting into original OIL-Xplus filter housings, to replace standard AO, AA and AO-TS or AA-TS grade elements and has a maximum operating temperature of 100°C.
