This Alemite 5608-2 moisture separator is a two-stage filtration device for removing condensation and foreign material from an air compressor line. It has a metal bowl for durability and a built-in sight glass for viewing the condensate level. It has 1/2" female National Pipe Taper Fuel (NPTF) inlet and outlet for attaching to male fittings. This moisture separator has a maximum operating pressure of 250 pounds per square inch (psi), a maximum operating temperature of 150 degrees C, and a flow of 110 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at 100 psi.
Compressed air filters remove pollutants and submicronic contaminants from clean air in compressed air handling and preparation systems. Clean compressed air provides and controls energy, conveys materials, and is critical to the safe operation of equipment in many industries. Compressed air filters remove particulates (dirt), oil, water, and oil vapor. They can be combined with other units, integrating with either a regulator, which controls excess pressure for better performance, or a lubricator, which adds oil mist to the air, or both. They are typically constructed of metal, such as zinc or type 316 stainless steel, or transparent polycarbonate, and are available with optional indicators, gauges, and drain configurations depending on the application. Compressed air filters are used in a wide range of applications, including food processing, electronics, health care, and instrumentation, among others.
Alemite manufactures lubrication and fluid handling systems and components. The company, founded in 1918, is headquartered in Fort Mill, SC.
