ULTRA-FINE FILTRATION

The Ultra-fine solids found in compressor fluids are the root cause of bearing wear and fouling of the compressor’s air-oil separators, which helps drive up your maintenance costs. By design, most OEM “full-flow” oil filters are only sized to remove solids down to 20 microns, which leaves the smaller more destructive “clearance-size” solids to remain in the oil to be constantly circulated and spread their damage to other critical components.

By comparison, Fluid Metrics’ COP is low-flow “bypass” device that continuously removes Ultra-fine solids down to 3 microns (Beta > 200) to prevent them from accumulating in the oil. Studies have shown that improving oil filtration down to 3 microns can improve bearing life up to 4 times over standard coarse, full-flow filtration. Fewer solids in the oil and lower ISO Particle Counts is also proven to reduce separator fouling and the resultant increase in pressure drop and compressor energy consumption.
