Air compressor filter element includes air filter element, oil filter element, oil and gas separation filter element.
Air filter element: It is used to filters air impurities at the air inlet. The cleaner the air is, the more the life of oil filter element, oil and gas separation element and oil can be guaranteed; at the same time, it prevents other foreign matter from entering the host to cause damage to the air compressor, even scrapped.
The design service life of air filter element is usually 2000 hours, and it should be replaced when it expires. When the indicator light of the air filter element on the dashboard is on, it should be cleaned or replaced in time. It is recommended to remove the air filter element every week to clean its surface dust. The air filter plugging alarm setting value is usually -0.05bar.
Oil filter element: used to filter the impurities mixed in the oil system of the air compressor lubricating oil, so that the oil entering the main engine is very clean to protect the safe operation of the main engine.
The design service life of oil filter element is usually 2000 hours, and it must be replaced when it expires. The use time should be shortened if the environmental condition is poor. The oil filter element blockage alarm setting value is usually 1.0-1.4bar.
Oil and gas separation filter element: separates the air and oil in the compressed air, intercepts and aggregates the oil mist in the gas, and forms oil droplets concentrated at the bottom of the filter element and returns to the compressor lubrication system through the oil return pipe, so that the air is more pure and high-quality.
The design service life of oil and gas separation filter element is usually 4000-8000 hours, and the oil and gas separation element blockage alarm setting value is usually 0.8-1.0 bar.
