Why use Air Oil Separating Filter Element ?
Air compressors and oil
Air compressors are used in a variety of industrial settings, including construction, manufacturing
and engineering processes. These devices require oil to cool the mechanism during operation,
lubricate moving parts and seal the system to prevent air leakage. However if the oil used for the
above purposes becomes mixed with the air used in the compressor, everything from the
distribution network to the production equipment may be negatively impacted. This is why an air oil
separator filter is an essential part of any compressed air system.
The air-oil separation process
In compressed air systems, the majority of the oil is removed by centrifugal force. The remaining
amount, which consists of small droplets and mist, must be separated out by an air oil separator
filter. Installed in the compressor’s air receiver tank, this filter is made of layers of borosilicate glass
fibers which remove the residual oil from the air stream. Basically, fine oil droplets are strained
through the filter medium and as they move, they coalesce to create larger drops. Gravity induces
these drops to move downward, where they collect at the bottom of the separator. They are then
sucked back into the air compressor’s oil sump and reused in the system. The compressed air,
cleaned of oil residue, continues on to the air receiver.
Types of air oil separator filter
There are a variety of different air oil separator filter designs available on the market. The wrap type
is the original design used to separate oil droplets from compressed air streams. It consists of a flat
layer of borosilicate glass fibers wrapped around a central tube. Pleated air oil separators filter
have a larger surface area due to their pleated filter medium and because of this can typically
handle an air flow capacity which is double that of the wrap type. Deep filter air oil separators also
provide a better capacity than wrap filters. They accomplish this by incorporating up to three
different grades of glass fiber, which are attached to the support tube in greater quantities than is
the case with wrap separators. The capacity of this type is about equal to that of pleated air-oil
separators. Meanwhile, spin on separators consist of a combined unit made up of filter medium and
housing. This makes it easier to replace during maintenance.
