Compressed air is normally saturated with moisture in the form of water vapour as well as aerosol, and this needs to be removed to prevent problems further downstream at the point of application.
Airfilter Enginering's water separator is specially designed based on the proven centrifugal separation to remove up to 99% of the water aerosol in compressed air. Working in conjunction with other compressed air treatment products like filters, after-coolers and dryers, the water separator is a very cost effective way of further enhancing their efficiency by ensuring that bulk water generated in the compressed air is properly separated and discharged from the system.
Our water separator applies the centrifugal motion effect to force liquid water out of compressed air. The spinning causes the condensate to merge on the water separator walls and when the condensate gains enough mass it falls to the bottom of the separator bowl where it is stored until it is flushed out of the system by the automatic drain valve.
The water separator comes in aluminium housing with polypropylene mechanism. They are available for operating pressures of up to 16 bar g.
Advantages of our Water Separators:
- Removes up to 99% bulk water
- Very low maintenance cost
- Simple and easy to install
- Efficient automatic drain
- Robust aluminium housing
