August 29, 2019 -- ControlAir announced the introduction of the Type FA10 Coalescing Filter and the Type FA12 Filter Regulator/Coalescing Filter Combo. The Type FA10 Coalescing Filter is specifically designed to remove liquid aerosols and sub-micron particles from compressed air. The Type FA12 Filter Regulator with Coalescing Filter combines the coalescing filter with a filter regulator in a piggy-back assembly.
Coalescing Filters help protect equipment and processes by removing oil or water droplets and particulate solids from compressed air systems. Droplets are captured, coalesced, and drained to the bottom of the polycarbonate bowl, preventing filtered droplet re-entrainment into the air flow. The polycarbonate bowl allows for visual indication of the filtered liquid level. Quick release locks on the drain bowls allow for replacement of the filter elements.
The Type FA10 Coalescing Filter provides superior filtration down to 0.3 or 0.01 micron. Offered with 1/8”, 1/4" or 1/2" NPT porting. Maximum operating pressure up to 150 psig (10 bar) and proof pressure of 200 psig (15 bar). Temperature limits of 23° to 140° F (-5° to 60° C). Flow capacities range up to 39 scfm (1,100 l/m). Drain capacities range up to 1.89 oz (56 cm3). Can be mounted in-line or with bracket.
The Type FA12 Filter Regulator/Coalescing Filter Combo comes in one package. The filter regulator provides pressure regulation and filtration to 5 micron while the coalescing filter provides further filtration down to 0.3 or 0.01 micron. The Type FA12 offers 1/8” or 1/4" NPT porting. Operating pressure range of 7-140 psig (0.5-10 bar). Supply pressure up to 150 psig (10.5 bar). Temperature limits of 23° to 140° F (-5° to 60° C). Flow capacities range up to 46 scfm (1,300 l/m). Drain capacities range up to 1.28 oz (38 cm33). The unit can be mounted in-line or with a bracket.
