A vital part of any compressed air system is the Air Filter. We like to call these the “essential workers” of a Compressed Air System. Contaminants take many forms in compressed air and gas systems. Compressed air filters are designed to remove contaminants such as small dust particles, pipe scale, and lubricants from compressed air systems. Just like you change the oil in your car to keep it running without error, the same applies to compressed air filters. In order to keep your compressed air filter operating as efficiently as possible, you need to change your filter element periodically.

Why is it important to change out your filter element?

  1. Maintaining your elements will save energy as the compressor doesn’t have to overwork and prevent costly downtime.
  2. After a period of time, the performance of the element does degrade if not maintained correctly.
  3. If not changed promptly, the containments will weaken the elements' media, causing leaks or even a hole through it. This is why stage filtration is so crucial, as it’s an extra layer of protection.

Reasons you may need to change your filter element?

  1. High-pressure reading on your filter.
  2. When you notice your element media looking worn or having a rough appearance.
  3. If you see a decrease in your system flow rate.
