Air/Oil Separator Elements Air/Oil Separators for rotary screwand vane type air compressors provide the ultimate filtration, witha micron rating of 0.3. All particles passing through the air andlube oil filters, which are larger than 0.3 microns, will betrapped by the separator. Separators are constructed of a depthloading media, and have good dirt holding capabilities. The basic purpose of this product isto separate the oil from the air through coalescing action. The oilis physically trapped by the separator while allowing air to passthrough. The oil is then drained down to the sump, removed by thepickup tube and return lines, and returned to the sump to berecompressed in a continuous cycle. A separator's life will varyconsiderably from thousands of hours down to very short cyclesdepending on usage and environmental conditions. (i.e. dust,humidity, smoke, pollution, etc...) Meets or Exceeds OEM Specifications Specifically designed to fit youroriginal equipment, our air/oil separators offer equal to or betterthan performance based on each manufacturer's stringentspecifications. Since our suppliers specialize in filtration, theyare able to take OEM requirements and combine that knowledge withtheir filtration experience to build a superior separator. Our Air/Oil Separator Replacementscome with a manufacturer's warranty that matches or exceeds theoriginal OEM warranty. Holds its Shape An eIndustrialSolutions air/oil separatorholds its shape under pressure and will maintain the maximumsurface area for improved performance. Its rigid construction helpsmaintain even pressure differentials keeping the air/oil separatorfrom collapsing and shutting down your compressor. Better Construction Because of how it's constructed, youwon't find one of our air/oil separators failing prematurely. Builtwith such features as steel metalwork, nylon end-caps and metal tometal welding, with our air/oil separators your compressor canperform better and last longer.
