Air Filters

Air Filters

Air filters ensure effective filtration of contaminants from your air supply.

Southern Cross Compressors has an extensive compressed air filter range.

Compressed Air Filters

Quality compressed air filters will deliver high quality compressed air and avoid component damage and product spoilage meaning increased productivity and reduced maintenance costs.

Compressed air used in industrial applications can contain more than 100 million polluting particles for every 1.0 Nm³ of compressed air.

Air Filters Features

Most of these particles are so small (less than 5 microns) they cannot be intercepted by the standard intake filters installed in a typical air compressor.

Compressed air will contain minute traces of oil aerosols and oil vapour which become entrained in the airstream. These oil particles can cause damage to system components as well as product spoilage. Fitting the appropriate compressed air coalescing and absorption filters to meet the quality needs of your system can remove these particles.

It is not only oil lubricated compressors that require filtering, “oil free” compressors still draw in oil and oil vapours from the atmosphere.

There are 4 main types of compressed air filters, the optimal set up for your compressed air system will depend on the application.
