Air Preparation

The lay-out of air-supply piping, the selection of adequate hose sizes and appropriate fittings and couplers and the preparation of air before it enters a tool are very important.

Filtering, regulating & lubricating at the work station

Compressed-air treatment program units and modular components are indispensable to insure maximum efficiency of controls, pneumatic tools, air cylinders and other pneumatic equipment.

They Allow:

  • To prolong pneumatic equipment life as well as of air cylinders
  • Proper filtering and lubricating of air prolong their life and top performance by a ratio of 1 to 20
  • Increase tools and equipment performance up to standard of efficiency, by preventing damages due to overheat and seizure
  • They insure a dependable source of smooth vibrationless power to operate tools at an efficient and steady speed
  • To reduce downtime, therefore improve the overall performance and efficiency of any compressed air system, tools, air cylinders or other pneumatic equipment

Proper usage of compressed air calls for:

Filters/micro coalescing:

  • To remove moisture and particles


  • To control pressure for the particular use


  • To show pressure


  • To protect power tools by injecting a metered quantity of lubricant

Components may be purchased separately or in pre-assembled combinations

Why efficient treatment of compressed air at the work station is vital?

The harmful agents in a compressed air system are:

Liquids & condensates:

  • Cause line corrosion
  • Cause reduced performance of tools and cylinders
  • Cause lubricants to wash away

Compressor oil:

  • Forms corrosive acids from lubricant aerosols
  • Forms sticky emulsions, reducing tools' speed and performance
  • Forms clogging residues

Solid contaminants:

  • Cause premature wear and damage to controls, tools and cylinders
  • Cause seizing and scoring of cylinders and air powered motors
  • Proper air preparation will result in improved performance and increased tool life.
