Over 90% of manufacturing facilities world-wide use compressed air as part of their manufacturing process. However, this powerful utility is not without its problems, in the form of compressed air contamination. It is therefore common practice to install compressed air filters as part of a “purification system” to ensure contaminants are reduced and the system operates in a safe, efficient and cost effective manner.

Filtration Strategy

Proper filtration is essential to process flow operation. Improper filtration or lack of filtration can wreak havoc on components, reducing their life and changing the final product. If left unaddressed, this can lead to equipment failure, process upsets, increased quality issues and in some cases, unplanned shutdown. Thus, making an investment in the correct filter for the process is a wise choice.
