Inline filters

· Before and after the air dryer (it could be refrigerated or desiccant air dryers)

· Immediate to the point of use on each compressed airdrop

· Directly or after the commercial air compressor

 It is also worth mentioning that to cut cost and get the best value out of your filter, and it would be an excellent idea for the compressed air to be filtered before entering the main piping section for distribution. This possibility will eliminate the need for point of use filtration, which is relatively more costly to install and maintain.

How often should I change my filters? Someone may ask. This will be determined by a number of factors. The standard industry rule stipulates once a year or after 8000 hours of operation. However, there are other factors that could necessitate a replacement sooner than anticipated. Some of the factors that could trigger a replacement sooner include:

  • Increased the amount of particulate brought about by corrosion in the piping or equipment.
  • Improperly fitted filters
  • High oil flow from the compressor equipment, which can cause the inline filter to be saturated more quickly than expected.

There are many filters on the market today; hence, your choice will depend on the functions of your machinery. Here are a few of the inline filters:

a) High Flowing Cartridges; made of fiber, these PP pleated filters are designed for higher filtration purposes and throughput.

b) Spun Bonded Filter Cartridges; they are 100% made of polypropylene fibers, carefully crafted to perform its functions.

c) Wound Filter Cartridges; these filters have been designed for rigorous filtration purposes. They are very economical, reliable, and straightforward to install. In addition to being easy to maintain.

d) PTE (Poly Tetra Fluoro Ethylene Filter Cartridge); these inert chemical filters have been specially designed for sterile filtration functions of air and gas streams.

e) PES (Poly Ether Sulphone) Filter Cartridge ensures the highest performance when it comes to bacterial retentions.

When using these filters, one most overlooked factor in many industrial operations is the importance of always keeping an eye out on the differential pressure gauge as it is the one that will best determine when to go for a new one.
