In today’s tough economy the need for high quality compressed air filtration at a reasonable cost is paramount. With this in mind, Artic Driers International has launched the E Series filter range. The casings and elements are manufactured by a German-owned group in Malaysia. This combination of low operating overheads combined with German standards results in high quality in-line coalescing air filtration at an extremely low price.
The E series has five different air filter elements that fit into any of the filter casings. Filtration ranges from 3 down to 0,01 microns, with oil removal down to 0,003 mg/m³. Element filtration performance is routinely checked by independent ISO auditors in Germany. The pleated media elements give a high level of dirt retention and low pressure drop, with 40% more surface area than a spiral wound filter element. The elements are finished with a colour coded anti re-entrainment sock. The aluminium casings are internally treated to prevent corrosion and are also powder coated externally. All casings have a differential pressure gauge to alert operators when to change the filter element. A level-controlled automatic drain valve drains the bowl. If required, an adjustable, timed electronic drain valve can be fitted to the outside of the bowl for precision drainage, or intelligent no-loss drains may be used.
Artic also recently introduced activated alumina air drying canisters and activated carbon absorption canisters that fit into the standard E series casings. These may be used as point-of-use dryers and final oil vapour removers, providing end-users with additional protection for demanding applications.
