Compressed Air Filters - Air Oil Separators

Air oil separators remove compressor Iubricant from the compressed air stream. During normal operation, the compressor lubricant is returned to the oil sum and the compressed air continues to the air receiver.

A typical oil separator reduces the lubricant entrained in the compressed air to 2-3 ppm. Under normal operation conditions an oil separators service life is 4,000 to 6,000 operating hours.

Air/oil separators are also called oil separators. The oil separator is the component that separates the compressor Iubricant from the compressed air and returns it to the main oil sump.

Technical Specifications of Air Oil Seperators

  • Deliver oil carryover 2-3 ppm
  • At installation, typically pressure differential is around 24 psig
    Change intervals should be considered at 12 to 16 psig drop normally
  • Able to withstand pressure differentials during normal operation and routine surge demand.
  • Compatible with mineral and synthetic lubricants including diessters and PAOs. Always make sure you replacement oil separator is compatible with the compressor lubricant you are running
