What is an air filter and how many types are there?

What are Air Filter Units (FRLUnits)?

Air filter units (FRLUnits) or Air Service Unit are equipment used in pneumatic systems. Serves to prepare the air (Air Preparation Unit) by improving the air quality. available for use in pneumatic systems since the control of cleanliness to prevent dust particles into the air system, causing equipment such as various valves to be damaged Including controlling the level of pressure or air pressure to be stable and as needed. The air filter in the FRL pneumatic system mainly consists of 3 components:

  • F (Fillter) filter, air filter Air filter equipment (Air Filter)
  • R (Regulator) Air pressure regulator air pressure regulator Air Regulator
  • L (Lubricator) Lubricating unit Air lubricator

How many types of air filters are there and what are they?

The term air filter in pneumatic systems has a fairly broad meaning. And may mean just an Air Regulator or means a water trap air filter that combines Air Filter, Air Regulator and Air Lubricator together, so we will give an example of a filter set that has different types to choose from.

General use filter set (Standard Air Filter)

Used in jobs that do not focus on the quality of compressed air, such as blowing or cleaning general mechanic equipment.

FR.L series filter

It is an air treatment kit that includes the same air filter and pressure regulator. And we can buy a set of oil dispenser (Lubricator) to be installed later.

Three-line water trap filter (FRL)

is a compressed air quality control unit that is currently popular (many people may call it another name FRL dewatering air filter) due to the efficiency of the compressed air obtained from this type of compressed air quality control unit. There are quite a bit higher than the general 2 types and the 2 type alignment. Compressed air has high cleanliness. The strength of the wind will be constant and consistent. It also extends the service life of other nearby equipment (with lubricant).

Air-water separator AMG

Used specifically for separating water from air. It is highly efficient, capturing and separating up to 99.99 percent of water droplets or water vapor from the air.
