ControlAir Inc. has introduced the new type FA10 coalescing filter and the type FA12 filter regulator/coalescing filter combo. The type FA10 coalescing filter is specifically designed to remove liquid aerosols and sub-micron particles from compressed air. The type FA12 filter regulator with Coalescing Filter combines the coalescing filter with a high performance filter regulator in one convenient piggy-back assembly.
In many industries the quality of air flow is critical for equipment performance and longevity. ControlAir’s coalescing filters help protect equipment and processes by efficiently removing oil or water droplets and particulate solids from compressed air systems. Droplets are captured, coalesced, and drained to the bottom of the polycarbonate bowl, preventing filtered droplet re-entrainment into the air flow. The polycarbonate bowl allows for visual indication of the filtered liquid level. Quick release locks on the drain bowls allow for fast and easy replacement of the filter elements. The type FA10 and type FA12 provide high flow rates, low pressure drops and long service life.
Type FA10 coalescing filter provides superior filtration down to 0.3 or 0.01 micron. They are offered with 1/8, 1/4 or 1/2 in. NPT porting and rated for maximum operating pressure up to 150 psig (10 bar) and proof pressure of 200 psig (15 bar). They feature temperature limits of 23° to 140° F (-5° to 60° C). Flow capacities range up to 39 scfm (1,100 lpm). Drain capacities range up to 1.89 oz (56 cm3). They can be mounted in-line or with bracket.
Type FA12 filter regulator/coalescing filter combo comes in one convenient compact package. The high performance filter regulator provides accurate pressure regulation and filtration to 5 micron while the coalescing filter provides further filtration down to 0.3 or 0.01 micron. Type FA12 offers 1/8 or 1/4 in. NPT porting. They are rated for operating pressure range of 7-140 psig (0.5-10 bar) and supply pressure up to 150 psig (10.5 bar). They feature temperature limits of 23° to 140° F (-5° to 60° C) and flow capacities range up to 46 scfm (1,300 l/m). Drain capacities range up to 1.28 oz (38 cm33). The unit can be mounted in-line or with a bracket.
