Compressed air is not pure.
Compressed air contains contaminants that could cause damage to the end application. Some common contaminants of compressed air are water, dirt, small wear particles, bacteria, and sometimes even degraded lubricating oil. These impurities mix and often form an acidic sludge that can increase the wear and tear of end applications like pneumatic tools, machinery, valves orifices, and electro-pneumatic controls like relays. For increased reliability and energy savings, compressed air must be clean and dry.
ELGi offers a wide range of pneumatic accessories that ensure application-specific air quality norms are met per the ISO 8573 standards. The compressed air treatment downstream solutions & condensate management systems offered by ELGi are called AIRMATE, and energy conservation systems are classified as ELGi CONSERVE.

Why compressed air filters and downstream filters are critical?
The atmospheric air contains moisture, particle contaminants, microorganisms, and gases. When this air gets compressed, the concentration of such particles increases by 6-10 times (equal to the compression ratio). However, when this atmospheric air gets compressed by a compressor, other contaminants like oil and metal traces get added during the compression process. This is why it is essential to remove these contaminants from the compressed air before using it.
ELGi’s Airmate Filters (AF) are suitable for applications that require filtered air for reliable performance. The AF Series filters provide customers with best-in-class filtration and one of the lowest pressure drops.
