In manufacturing facilities that rely on pneumatic power in some form or fashion—which is the vast majority of facilities—filters are the unsung heroes.
Filters remove dirt, water and other contaminants that, left unchecked, can hasten the demise of air-powered equipment.
"Many of the latest versions have high dirt-holding capacity for longer life, improved flow paths that lead to better energy efficiency, and can even alert users when they need maintenance," explains Ken Korane of sister publication Hydraulics & Pneumatics.
From repairable inline filters to high-flow particulate filters, Korane explores some of the newest products on the market. For more, read "Filters Promote Air-System Reliability."
