Compressed air filters


Compressed air filters

Compressed air filters, often referred to as line filters, are used to remove contaminates from compressed air after compression has taken place.

Air leaving a standard screw or piston compressor will generally have a high water content as well as oil carry over and other contaminates. Every pneumatic application is different and requires different filtration levels.
