Importance of Air Inlet Filtration

The air inlet filter is the most important filter on your compressor.

Dust ingestion will drastically reduce the life of the compressor element, oil separator element and compressor oil.

The most important task for a compressor inlet air filter is to ensure sufficient protection of the compressor element against wear under most of the common environmental conditions.

By stopping contamination at the air inlet filter you extend the life of the:

  • Compressor element
  • Oil separator
  • Compressor oil filter
  • Compressor Oil
  • Bearings and moving parts
