OIL FILTERS FOR AIR COMPRESSOR
Air Compressor oil filters are typically found in oil-flooded rotary screw compressors. In this application, oil is used to lubricate and seal the rotors on the air-end. This enables the compressor to generate high pressure quickly and deliver compressed air in a single stage.
Oil filters remove any condensate, dirt, sand, or pieces of rust from the oil. This protects your compressor internals such as bearings and the oil separator from damage.
An air compressor oil filter is of cylindrical shape. Depending on the air compressor it is fit for, an oil filter will have an enclosure or will come without one. A filter is composed of a pleated paper filter element that creates the biggest possible surface area for maximum oil flow.
