1 Compressed Air FiltersKaeser Gives You the Air Quality You RequireAmbient air contains contaminants that are drawn into the compressor. These contaminants are concentrated during compression and find their way into thecompressed air system. A typical Compressed air system is contaminated withabrasive solid particles such as dirt, rust and pipe scale, compressor lubricants,condensed water droplets, and oil and hydrocarbon Compressed air systems increase operating costs by robbingthe air system of useful power. This results in reduced efficiency, damaged air-operated equipment, higher maintenance and repair costs, reduced productioncaused by downtime, and increasedproduct properly sized and selected Kaeser filter (s)
2 In conjunction with theappropriate dryer will remove these will allow the compressedair system to deliver the quality of air required for the particular applicationwhether it s plant air, instrument air, or breathing Performance Filters and SeparatorsDesigned and developed using the latest innovations and manufacturingtechniques, Kaeser filter housings are designed with larger flow areas to ensurelow pressure drop and to provide easier installation, operation and result is consistent product quality while minimizing operating Reduces the Cost of Compressed AirKaeser Filters remove more contaminants with less pressure drop.
3 Compare theoperating pressure drop of competitive brand Filters and remember, for everyextra 2 psi of pressure drop, power requirements increase by 1%.With a complete selection of application-specific filter types, sizes, technicalservice and support, Kaeser offers a customized solution for all of yourcompressed air quality corrode and damage air-oper-ated equipmentAny contaminants that are not filtered fromthe compressor will eventually wind up in the machinery or end productAll ambient air contains harmful particulatesand contaminantsSuperior Filtration for IncreasedProductivityWhat happens when youdon t use an air filter ?

However, for equipment withoutan aftercooler or where the discharge temperature is 110 F or higher, an aftercooler should bepositioned at the location filter elements should be replaced at 10 psid (red area of Delta P gauge ) or annually,whichever occurs first.
10 KVF filter elements should be replaced after 1,000 hours of operation or annual-ly, whichever occurs first. Kaeser recommends processing condensate through the Aquamat which safe-ly and economically disposes of the environmentally threatening oil/water mixture. KPF is offered in areverse flow version (KPF-RF) for cold regenerative desiccant dryers.
