Walmec North America’s (Mazeppa, Minnesota) Five Micron Compressed Air Filter provides point of use filtration of liquids, oils and other contaminants.

According to Walmec North America, this two-stage filter is designed to operate most effectively when placed near the point of use. It has a five micron rating, and is available in sizes with flow ranges of 15 SCFM to 250 SCFM, as well as pressure ratings of up to 250 PSI. The Five Micron Compressed Air Filter is said to be ideal for a large variety of applications including surface preparation, paint spraying, powder coating, air powered tools and pneumatically operated equipment.

The first stage filter knocks out all liquids, as well as particles of dirt, dust, rust and scale. The second stage filter removes remaining moisture, contaminants and particles down to five microns. An automatic float drain under the second stage filter opens and expels all collected liquids when an ounce or more is present. It is said to be fully automatic with no continuous air loss.

The Five Micron Compressed Air Filter has a permanently mounted differential pressure gauge and comes with mounting brackets. The differential pressure gauge provides a visual indication of required maintenance which Walmec says is easily done by installing the appropriate service kit. There is no need to remove the unit from the compressed air system, and an optional pressure regulator with gauge is available.

The Five Micron Compressed Air Filter is said to effectively protect users’ valuable machinery, tools and finished products from wet, dirty and contaminated air. It is designed to be easy to install, use and maintain.
