Air line filters extend the life of your compressor and improve the quality of air being put out.
Aside from filtering out additional moisture from the air, air line filters remove particulates such as dust and dirt.
While most users only need general purpose filters, high efficiency filters may be needed for medical applications or to protect delicate instruments from contaminants.
For different applications, there are some different options to choose from.
General Purpose Filters
General purpose air filters are ideal for basic water, oil, and dirt removal. They keep the air moderately clean and extend the life of your air compressor.
Average general purpose filter elements can catch particulates 5 microns in size. However, some general purpose filters can catch particulates as small as 1 micron.
