This Coilhose Pneumatics MC2-M miniature coalescing compressed air filter is suitable for removing water and particulates from compressed air systems. Its die-cast zinc body and bowl resist corrosion, and its porous polypropylene filter element removes 99.97% of solids and fluids down to 0.3 microns. The bowl has a capacity of 1.5 oz., and can be drained manually. This filter has a maximum operating temperature of 120 degrees F and a maximum pressure rating of 150 pounds per square inch (psi). It comes with a 1/4" female National Pipe Taper (NPT) threaded connection for connecting to an air hose, is recommended for use on a pre-filtered air hose, and is suitable for industrial and commercial compressed air filtering applications where space is limited and flow requirements are low.
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.
