Air Oil Separators

  • An air/oil separator is used to seperate compressed air from compressor oil. The compressor oil collects at the bottom of the separator tank and the compressed air continues to the air receiver. A standard rotary screw separator reduces the lubricant entrained in the compressed air to 2-3 ppm. Under normal operating conditions an oil separator's service life is 3,000 to 6,000 operating hours.

Types of Air Oil Separators

  • Wrap Type Air/Oil Separators

    The wrap style oil separator was the original design to remove oil aerosols from compressed air streams. These are glass fiber elements with a consistent pore size.

  • Pleated Air/Oil Separators

    The pleats are added to the air-oil separators media during manufacturing. Pleated filter media increases the air-oil separators life. Pleated oil separators can handle on average two times the air flow of a wrap air-oil separator.

  • Deep Filter Air Oil Separators

    Deep filter air/oil separators have several grades of glass fiber filter media wrapped on them. The benefit of a deep filter separator is increased air flow capacity similar to a pleated separator, while maintaining a low initial pressure drop and residual oil content. These separators can handle more oil aerosol than a wrap or pleated separator.
