Kaeser Kompressoren has developed a new generation of compressed air filters designed to deliver ‘unprecedented energy efficiency’ through minimal pressure differential without a loss in performance.

Kaeser says the filters’ performance characteristics were determined in accordance with the ISO 12500-1 quality standard and were tested and verified by an independent body.

"Accordingly, the new deep-pleat KE (Kaeser Extra) aerosol filter achieves a residual aerosol content of 0.01 mg/m³ with a saturation differential pressure of no more than 200 mbar," the company adds.

"The filter range covers four different element grades for filtration of aerosols, dust and oil vapours. Compressed air can therefore be treated to suit the needs of the specific application in accordance with ISO 8573-1 purity classes.

"These innovative filters are suitable for pressures up to 16 bar at temperatures of up to 66 deg C and will be initially available in nine enclosure sizes for flow volumes up to 14.2 cubic metres per minute."

Kaeser says it has completely redesigned and patented the filter element head to gently redirect the air flow so that it is evenly distributed across the filter media. In addition, optimum filtering rates have been achieved through especially large filter surfaces.

A bayonet fitting with a positive positioning guide is used to connect the filter head and the housing, which is made of corrosion resistant aluminium and coated with a ‘passivation’ layer. They are available with numerous options, including compressed air connection flanges of various sizes, and a large selection of accessories.
