Why do I need a compressed air filter?

Air compressor filter, sometimes known as in line filters look relativity small, but they actually perform a very important task in a compressed air system. Compressed air filters can be seen as the first line of defence in removing unwanted particles and contaminates such as oil, dust and other harmful substances from compressed air.


A dirty compressed air filter element can reduce your air compressors efficiency, cause pressure drops and impact on your energy costs! Compressed air filters make sure the produced air is free from particulates, oil residue, rust from pipework and dust. Without compressed air filters, dirt and dust can build up throughout the compressed air system affecting valves and motors which could lead to a breakdown.


Compressor filter also ensures your final application is free from these impurities.

Replacing an element in a compressed air system is a relatively easy operation and should form part of your regular maintenance program. It is recommended to replace a compressed air filter element every 4000hr to 8000hrs or at least once a year. A filter may look clean and unused, but left unchanged over 12 months it will become ineffective. Often compressed air filter housings are fitted with an indicator usually showing an area of green or red to highlight when the filter element may need changing.


There are many different types of compressed air filters on the market, along with various degrees of quality, including air compressor water separator,air dryer filter,  air compressor intake filter,  air compressor water filter, air compressor water separator for painting, air line water separator, inline water separator , compressor oil filter and etc.  A high quality compressed air filter will last longer than a cheaper low quality filter. So it is important that you pick the correct filter housing and correct filter element that suits your final application for your compressed air and also the quality of air you require.


What are the different compressed air filter types?

Particulate filters - Particulate compressed air filters remove dust, liquid, oil and other particles.


Coalescing filters - Coalescing compressed air filters remove moisture droplets, oil, dust and dirt particles.


Cold coalescing filters - Cold coalescing filters remove moisture when operating around 35 °F (2 °C)


Activated carbon filters - Activated carbon compressed air filters remove odours and hydrocarbons from the air. This type of filter is often used in food preparation or breathing air applications.

Our top tips for compressed air filter use are:

1. Replace between 4000hr to 8000hrs or at least once a year

2. Filters remove oil, dust and any other particulates from the delivered compressed air

3. Dirty air can cause problems with air tools and downstream equipment

4. Used filters can cause pressure drops and increased demand on your compressor
