In Line filters protect your equipment from dust, dirt, oil and water. Dust will wear down your equipment and it can make pneumatic control valves get stuck. Especially when the dirt and dust is combined with oil (which is often the case with compressors).
Filsan’s In Line air filters have a lower pressure-drop then low-quality ones. This will save you energy. Every pressure drop in your system (from filters, dryers, long piping etc.) will require you to put your compressor on a higher setpoint, which will cost you extra electricity. Over time, dust will accumulate in your filters. All this dust will cause an extra obstacle for the compressed air. This means the pressure drop over your filter will become higher over time.
Low-quality air filters will clog up quicker than Filsan’s In Line filters. This means that you’ll have to buy new filters more often. But it also means that the pressure drop over your filter will become higher, quicker, with low-cost air filters.
You can buy the filter elements separately from the housing, so you can change them to get high performance. When shopping for In Line Filters, keep in mind that quality is important. Filsan In Line filters will produce cleaner air, which means fewer problems with your equipment.
