This Parker P31EA92EGMBN5P filter/pressure regulator combination or "piggy-back" is used for high moisture removal in a pneumatic system. The filter removes oil, water, and particulate as small as 5 micron, and the regulator is a relieving type for venting excess pressure from the line. It has a polycarbonate bowl for resistance to oil, gas, and impact and a manual drain. This element/regulator has an operating pressure range of 0 to 125 pounds per square inch gauge (psig) and a high-flow 1/4" National Pipe Thread (NPT) port for a flow rate of 30 standard cubic feet per minute (scfm).
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.
