Airborne particles, water vapor, microbes, and chemical gases enter compressors. After compression has taken place these contaminants become concentrated and more destructive. Compressed air quality is essential to all modern production facilities. Compressed air filters, often referred to as line filters, are used to remove these contaminates from compressed air.
Clean and dry air protects the compressed air system, reduces maintenance costs and increases finished product quality. Our types of filters vary depending on the application, the pressure level and type of contaminants.
We supply a broad range of oil/water separators and cyclone water filters. Besseling uses filters made of needle felt, because of its mechanical strength and corrosion resistance.
Two byproducts of compressing air are heat and condensation. Heat is dissipated via the aircooler adjoined to the compressor; however the condensation needs to be removed from the air via ancillary equipment before it is piped to wherever it is required. This is done by running the air through a refrigeration air dryer or a chemical air dryer where necessary.
The ambient air taken in by an air compressor will always contain a certain amount of water vapor, depending on the temperature and the degree of humidity. As the air is compressed this water vapor condenses into water droplets. This water needs to be eliminated from the air to avoid problems with applications such as the use of pneumatic machinery or when operating air tools and spray painting. Without removing this condensate from the air it can pollute the production cycle and lead to corrosion in piping, solenoid valves, and pneumatic tools.Back to Products Request A Free Quote
