The use of desiccant air dryers, together with associated pre and after filtration, will remove liquid, oil and water as well as reducing water vapours to pressure dewpoints of -40°C and -70°C (-40°F and -100°F).
Typically, oil content is reduced within these systems to levels of 0.01 mg/m³ (0.01 ppm). This may be satisfactory in some applications however; some specific applications have more demanding requirements. In those applications requiring lower levels of oil removal, the use of activated carbon towers will, by the use of adsorption, reduce the residual oil content to lower than 0.003 mg/m³ (0.003 ppm).
Compressed air flows through the activated carbon bed adsorbing oil vapours and odours. The MFC Activated Carbon Towers offer connection sizes from 2” to 3”.
Our range of activated carbon towers offers an effective solution to removal of residual oil vapours and odours from the compressed air supply.
