Added by the compressor installation through oil-lubricated compressors (oil), adsorption dryers and activated carbon filters (dirt), piping
network, and vessels (pipescale)
Trash in, trash out: oil vapors from car exhausts and industrial processes, atmospheric dirt, and microorganisms get sucked in by the
compressor. As with water, their concentration – and thus importance – increases significantly after compression.
What problems can the contaminants cause?
• Damaged production equipment, leading to inefficiencies and increased costs
• Air pollution, creating unhealthy work environments
Ash Air offers you a comprehensive line-up of innovative filter solutions to meet your specific needs. Our filtration solutions are engineered to provide the best air quality. For general applications, we provide oil coalescing, particulate and oil vapour filters in a wide range of flows and pressures.
AIRnet is a fast, easy and reliable piping system, designed for compressed air, vacuum, and other inert gas applications from the source to the point of use with the lowest total cost of ownership.

Intelligent Connectivity System (ICONS) is the eyes into your compressed air system. Ditch the logbooks, the regular visits to the
compressor room and dealing with surprises with your compressor. • Most maintenance organizations operate between 10% to 40% efficiency •
Most spend more than 50% of time on emergency work • Reactive maintenance costs 3-5 times more than preventive maintenance.
Compressed air is used in many different industries. From refrigerator manufacturers to toy makers, companies around the world depend on
compressed air to produce products. It's so important that many consider it a utility as significant as electricity, water or natural gas.
As part of a concerted effort worldwide to reduce energy consumption, CO2 emissions and the impact of industrial operations on the
environment, regulatory authorities in many countries have introduced legislation to encourage the manufacture and use ...
Air is always contaminated with solid particles such as dust, sand, soot, salt crystals and water as it leaves the compressor. An effective
compressed air treatment system lowers the dew point of the air and takes out the elements that may harm equipment downstream of the
compressor and dryer
The ambient temperature in an air compressor’s environment can greatly affect your air compressor’s performance. All air compressors will
generate some amount of water, but depending on inlet air conditions some can produce large amounts of water.
