Oil Filters & Separators


Original filters and separators keep the integrity of your equipment intact, protecting it from premature wear and failure.

Working with top air quality

Generic filters and separators are developed with broad specifications to suit various types of equipment. Installed in your compressor, they may cause serious problems. They may be ineffective to stop contaminants from entering vital components, causing wear and damage. They may cause pressure drops, increasing energy consumption. Or they might simply fail, as they are not designed for the demanding working conditions of your compressor.

Generic won’t work

Generic filters and separators are developed with broad specifications to suit various types of equipment. Installed in your compressor, they may cause serious problems. They may be ineffective to stop contaminants from entering vital components, causing wear and damage. They may cause pressure drops, increasing energy consumption. Or they might simply fail, as they are not designed for the demanding working conditions of your compressor.

Designed for your compressed air system

Original filters and separators have many features that are specifically designed for your compressed air system. A large surface area of high-quality filter material effectively keeps contaminants out. A strong build withstands high pressures and temperatures. The bypass valve of Original oil filters ensures uninterrupted oil supply to the compressor element, while built-in grounding prevents the buildup of static electricity in the oil separator.

The risk of using generic oil separators

A generic oil separator was developed with broad specifications allowing it to fit in different types of equipment. Installed in your compressor, it may cause various problems. As it is not built for the working conditions and pressures inside your compressor, it may be subject to faster wear and shorter service life. Excessive flow resistance may cause pressure drops, resulting in higher energy costs. Insufficient separation means the compressed air will contain oil particles that may contaminate your downstream equipment. If a generic separator is not equipped with grounding, a buildup of static electricity could lead to fire!

Why Original Oil Separators are better

While the cost of an original separator is a fraction of the total compressor cost, the risk of having to replace damaged parts can easily amount to 40% of the compressor value! Every 1 bar pressure drop over the separator leads to a 7% increase of energy consumption, reflected in your energy bill.

The risk of using generic oil filters

Oil passes through the key components of your trusted compressor. Contaminants in the oil can have a big impact on your compressor’s performance, service intervals and overall lifetime. The oil will need to be changed more frequently, and clogging of components can lead to premature wear and even breakdowns. A bypass valve ensures the element is lubricated at all times, even in case of filter clogging. The absence of a bypass valve on cheaper oil filters may lead to overheating and element damage.


Why Original Oil Filters are better

Original oil filters have a strong housing to withstand high pressure. Special sealing ensures absolute tightness. The specially engineered, high quality filter paper can resist water and aggressive synthetic oils at temperatures of up to 140 °C. The bypass valve of original filters operates within specified margins. This ensures it will open to prevent element failure, for instance when the filter is clogged or during a cold start. Unlike generic filter bypass valves, it will not open at the wrong pressure, flooding the element with unfiltered oil.

While an oil filter costs around 0.2% of your compressor, the risk of a damaged compressor element and other components could amount to 40% of the compressor value.
