Compressed air can be saturated with moisture in the form of water vapour as well as aerosol and this needs to be removed to prevent problems further downstream at the point of application.
AFE water separators are specifically designed based on the proven centrifugal separation to remove up to 99% of the water aerosol in compressed air. Working in conjunction with other compressed air treatment products like filters, after-coolers and dryers, the water separator is a very cost effective way of enhancing their efficiency by ensuring that the bulk water generated in the compressed air is properly separated in and discharged from the system.
AFE filters include the following features;
Vortex Generator Vane – Aerodynamically designed vortex generator for greater efficiency.
Vortex Generator Cone – Conical profile for enhanced vortex effect.
Cyclone Arrestor – Special profile designed to improve separator efficiency and prevent re-entrainment of separated water.
Automatic Condensate Drain – Efficiently discharge separated water from the system (For 16 bar system only)
