Do dirt and debris promote premature failure in your application?

By using the appropriate particulate and coalescing filters, air line contamination will be minimized by delivering clean dry air to your application. Particulate filters are used for the removal of solid particle contaminants down to 5 micron, as well as the removal of condensed liquids. Coalescing filters are designed to remove water, oil aerosols (not vapor) and particulate from air streams down to 0.01 micron in size. Installed in pairs, particulate and Coalescing filters ensure a continuous supply of high quality air.





Reducing required operating pressure saves money on air, as well as, wear and tear on machine components and seals.

Air regulators are designed to provide quick response and accurate pressure regulation for the most demanding industrial applications. Used to provide a convenient and low cost method to reduce a supplied air pressure to a desired outlet pressure and transform a fluctuating air supply to a relatively constant reduced air pressure within the operating range of the regulator. This type of regulator is generally used in a wide variety of applications where reduced pressure is highly desirable for energy conservation, safety requirements, air circuit control and air instrumentation.





Lubrication reduces friction, extends seal life and can act as a coolant in the system.

Normal wear and tear is often caused by constant friction between two surfaces. Lubricators are used to add measured amounts of suitable oil into the air stream. Pneumatic lubricators inject an oil aerosol into the flowing air stream to automatically provide the proper amount of internal lubrication to air operated tools or other pneumatic devices extending the life of expensive tooling. Lubricators are designed to provide lubrication for most general applications in a pneumatic system. Units should be installed close to the application ensuring effective distribution of oil to pneumatic components. When using lubricators, it is important to use only petroleum based oil in order to avoid damage to the components and the seals.




Bulk Liquid Separator


• Air enters the water separator inlet and turns into the separator module

• The inlet of the separator module contains a set of fixed vanes which the air must pass through

• The vanes force the air to spin inside the vessel

• The spinning air is then forced to change direction as it passes through the impinger

• A vortex is created which, due to the design of the separator module, narrows and intensifies as it reaches the lower part of the separator module

• Bulk liquid is removed from the air stream due to: Directional changes of the air stream, Velocity changes, Centrifugal action of the vortex

• As the vortex reaches the bottom of the module, air is forced through the center of the vortex

• Aerospace turning vanes located in the outlet of the separator module turn an inefficient corner into a number of more efficient corners

• Turning vanes reduce turbulence, minimizing pressure loss and cost of ownership

• The number of vanes required is dependent upon the conduit diameter
