Filtration and Separation for Compressed Air Systems

Compressed air must be free of aerosols, oil and particles, and liquid water before being used in your application.  During compressed air generation and distribution, contaminants are introduced to the air stream at various stages of the compressed air network. Compressed air filters, which come in various grades, along with separators will remove these contaminants, as well as humidity, oil, and bulk water from the compressed air stream. This is a critical step as these contaminants can lead to a deterioration in quality, machine failure, or even to a loss of production or to products that must be disposed of. CLEARPOINT® compressed air filters and water separators ensure the purity of your compressed air – safely and efficiently.

CLEARPOINT® Water Separators

In-line water separators are typically used at after coolers and refrigeration dryers in order to remove bulk liquid that is present in the compressed air pipework as a result of condensate being formed. All compressed air systems create some level of condensate through the basic function of compression. Poor water or condensate management can result in process contamination, component failure, and high differential pressure. All of which can be very costly when compared to the cost of removal.

Compressed air treatment in cement production

Cement and water are like oil and fire – best kept far apart from each other. When it comes to cement production, this is not an easy task, especially where the plant is located right on the seashore in tropical Africa. Under such conditions, the preparation of compressed air becomes a real challenge. Cement producer Ghacem in Ghana knows this all too well.

Oil and germ free for medicine

For the production of medicaments, the strictest hygienic standards apply to the production conditions. This of course also applies to the required compressed air. It must be absolutely free from oil in order not to contaminate the sensitive products. In its factory in Singen, Germany, drug manufacturer Nycomed relies on a comprehensive system solution provided by BEKO to treat the process air in a reliably oil-free manner.
