This Parker WS series Oil-X Evolution water separator removes liquid contamination from compressed air systems. Compressed air is directed into a spiral motion, and the centrifugal force of that action separates the water from the air flow. This separator ensures air quality in accordance with International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard 8573-1:2001 and helps reduce the release of CO2 into the environment. It has an aluminum housing for resistance to corrosion. The float drain requires no electrical connection. It has an operating temperature range of 35 to 176 degree F and a maximum operating pressure of 232 pounds per square inch (psi). This water separator is suitable for all compressor types, including variable flow, and all compressed air applications.
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.
