Compressed air filter reducer

Filter reducer

The filter reducer is one of the most important components of the compressed air installation. As the name suggests, it is a dual-function component - it is primarily responsible for cleaning the medium and then adjusting its pressure to specific needs. By eliminating all kinds of contamination and reducing the pressure to the desired value, it is possible to use air in various tools. '

Filteroreductions, as they greatly affect the efficiency of the entire installation and the operation of the equipment connected to it, should be of high quality and appropriately adapted to the specificity of its operation. In order to meet the expectations of our customers, we have prepared an offer of filter reducers with various parameters. We made sure that all models available in our store were of the highest quality and materials used.

Filter reducer - why is it so important? What is the task?

The filter reducer is so important for the efficiency of the pneumatic installation due to the fact that its individual elements are designed to operate in contact with air with strictly defined parameters, among which the most important are cleanliness and pressure.

Filtration of the medium reaching individual parts of the installation is of key importance due to the fact that contaminants such as oil residues, solid particles and water not only adversely affect the work culture of the entire system, but also contribute to reducing its service life. Therefore, it is the first stage of air treatment in installations. The filter reducer is an important element of this process, but it is worth remembering that it is not the only one. In some cases, it is also necessary to use other products from our offer - for example dehumidifiers or filters.

A well-selected filter reducer, thanks to the improvement of the quality of the medium flowing in the installation, contributes to the reduction of energy consumption and simplification of maintenance works. This, in turn, has a positive effect on the operating costs of the entire system.

Another task of the filter regulator is pressure reduction. This allows you to adjust the air stream to the requirements of subsequent elements of the installation. When designing the system, it is necessary to take into account the specifications of all the devices included in it and provide them with air at a pressure within the range specified by the manufacturer. If this value is exceeded, the equipment will not operate with higher efficiency. On the contrary, the efficiency of the installation will be reduced as a result.

Compressed air reducer filter. What parameters are the most important?

As we have already mentioned, the compressed air filter and reducer performs its function well only if it is correctly matched to the specifics of the other elements included in the pneumatic system. So that it does not adversely affect its operation, when choosing a device, the following should be taken into account:

  • thread size : should suit the connection. The compressed air reducer filters in our store are available with threads 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 3/4 and 1 inch. The presence of all standard threads used in pneumatic installations allows you to choose the right filter reducer for each system. Some filter reducers, apart from standard threads, also have quick couplings. However, if for some reason it is not possible to select a device with appropriate parameters, an adapter can be used - provided that it is adapted for use in pneumatics;

  • maximum pressure : filters, compressed air reducers operate within a certain pressure range. For models from our range, it ranges from 0.5 to 16 bar. Such a wide variety allows you to choose the right filter reducer for each type of installation;

  • filtering level of the medium : the efficiency of filtering the medium should be in accordance with the specification of devices located downstream of the filter with a compressed air reducer. It is not recommended to filter particles smaller than required by the installation. This is due to the faster clogging of the filters when they also catch smaller particles. Filter reducers from our offer are able to retain particles up to 10 micrometers;

  • efficiency : it is understood as the amount of medium that can flow through the filter of the compressed air reducer at a given pressure in a given time. In our store, you can buy devices with a capacity of 1 to 14 thousand liters per minute at a pressure of 7 bar. This value correlates with the thread size of the connection point. The higher it is, the greater the medium flow provided by a given model;

  • operating temperature : gases working in a pneumatic system can have different temperatures. Whether it is low or high, contact with the medium can lead to faster wear and even damage to the filter regulator. Therefore, when choosing it, we should necessarily take into account the temperature at which a given device can operate. In our store there are compressed air reducer filters adapted for use in contact with gases with a temperature of 0 to 60 degrees Celsius;

  • presence of a pressure gauge : a pressure gauge, i.e. a device for measuring the pressure of the flowing air, allows you to maintain a high level of safety, accuracy and efficiency of the installation.

In addition to the aforementioned parameters, when choosing a compressed air reducer filter, it is also worth paying attention to the quality of its workmanship and the materials used in its production. In our store, we offer the highest quality devices, adapted to difficult working conditions in various types of installations. We make every effort to ensure that the products we offer meet all standards, selecting only proven suppliers.

In the interests of the convenience of our contractors and the efficiency of service work, we also attach great importance to the issue of service. When you buy a filter reducer in our store, you can be sure that the delivered goods will comply with the presented specification and that it will reach your hands as soon as possible - even 24 hours after placing the order. In case of any problems with the selection of the appropriate device, we also provide professional help from our advisers.

The filter reducer purchased in our store always has a manufacturer's warranty valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. After its expiry, it is possible to take advantage of full post-warranty care. We also provide competitive prices, enabling customers to optimize expenses related to the construction, expansion or servicing of the pneumatic system.

We invite you to familiarize yourself with the offer of compressed air reducer filters available in our store, as well as with other products intended for use in pneumatic installations.
