Coalescing Filter

Once generated by the air compressor, (compressed) air often must be further filtered so as to meet the exacting needs of the industrial applications for which it is used.

This is most effectively done through the use of a downstream coalescing filter, or series of filters. It is a common misconception that “oil free” air compressors do not require this precaution.

However, atmospheric air typically contains a significant amount of water, oil vapor and other contaminants, especially in industrial areas.

Upon compression therefore, these contaminants are concentrated into the compressed air, whether the machine is “oil free” or oil flooded.

Accordingly, the use of fine, coalescing filters is essential for both types of compressors, so as to prevent an accumulation of such contaminants in pneumatic machinery.

ICAS coalescing filters are the simple way to avoid such contamination in your expensive equipment. Our filters provide the highest level of clean, compressed air with a minimum loss of energy (pressure drop).

Through the selection of the appropriate grade of borosilicate microglass filtration media, and maintaining the quantity, diameter and direction of individual fibers, ICAS coalescing filters guarantees your air compressor system will operate correctly with minimal operational upkeep.

Compressed Air Filters

COMPRESSED AIR CONTAMINATION

Even in today’s high-tech world, compressed air remains the primary power source for industry. Because it has many advantages over other types of energy, an increasing number of applications for compressed air are still being discovered.

Unfortunately, compressed air is subject to contamination from the atmosphere and the compressor itself. This results in corrosion and other related problems, which inevitably lead to system and equipment failure.

Refrigeration & Natural Gas Separators

Special inorganic materials are required for the construction of properly functioning oil separators in refrigeration and natural gas compressor packages.

In these units, gases other than air (such as Freon, ammonia or natural gas) are being com-pressed and mixed with lubricating oil which still must be removed prior to use of the gas.

These types of gases, along with ancillary materials often contained in natural gas, are not suitable for typical oil separator construction, and care must be given to the proper selection of all materials in order to ensure proper functioning of the separator.


ICAS-Technolab has the longest history of successful oil separation technology for this field.

From the coalescing materials to the sealing methods used, you can be confident in oil separators for refrigeration and natural gas purchased from ICAS-Technolab.

A wide range of standard sizes are available, as well as a broad capability to produce elements custom-suited for your specific application.

Oil Filters

In the compressor system, the oil itself must be filtered on a regular cycle so as to remove contaminants that may enter the compressor and damage the unit.

This is accomplished through the installation of a lube oil filter, either in cartridge, or spin-on form, which then ensures that all of the oil is cleaned as it moves through the filter.

Filtering in 5-25 micron range (depending upon application), it is again, the depositing of oil-borne contaminant over time (similar to the oil-separator), that causes the oil filter to continually increase in differential pressure to a point at which it must be replaced in order to continue proper filtration of the compressor oil.

Like all of our products, ICAS Technolab oil filters are built of the highest quality materials and workmanship.

Specific filtration levels are obtained through the exclusive use of high grade filter media and consistent surface area control, obtained by a strict maintenance of pleat quantity and depth. Leakages are prevented by the positive seals obtained with both plastisol and epoxy encapsulation. Viton seals are used where applications of synthetic oil are typical.

Synthetic Lubricants

ICAS offers a full range of PAO, diester and polyglycol based compressor lubricants, designed to match the most difficult compressor application.

Continual testing and research combines to ensure that the most effective oil additives are used in order to virtually eliminate such common problems as foaming, oxidation and deposit formation.

Air Compressor

The three basic types of air compressors are

reciprocating
rotary screw
rotary centrifugal

These types are further specified by:

the number of compression stages
cooling method (air, water, oil)
drive method (motor, engine, steam, other)
lubrication (oil, Oil-Free where Oil Free means no lubricating oil contacts the compressed air)
packaged or custom-built

Reciprocating Air Compressors

Reciprocating air compressors are positive displacement machines, meaning that they increase the pressure of the air by reducing its volume. This means they are taking in successive volumes of air which is confined within a closed space and elevating this air to a higher pressure. The reciprocating air compressor accomplishes this by a piston within a cylinder as the compressing and displacing element.

Single-stage and two-stage reciprocating compressors are commercially available.

Single-stage compressors are generally used for pressures in the range of 70 psig to 100 psig.
Two-stage compressors are generally used for higher pressures in the range of 100 psig to 250 psig.

Note that

1 HP ~ 4 CFM at 100 psi

and that 1 to 50 HP are typically for reciprocating units. Compressors 100 hp and above are typically Rotary Screw or Centrifugal Compressors.

The reciprocating air compressor is single acting when the compressing is accomplished using only one side of the piston. A compressor using both sides of the piston is considered double acting.

Load reduction is achieved by unloading individual cylinders. Typically this is accomplished by throttling the suction pressure to the cylinder or bypassing air either within or outside the compressor. Capacity control is achieved by varying speed in engine-driven units through fuel flow control.

Reciprocating air compressors are available either as air-cooled or water-cooled in lubricated and non-lubricated configurations and provide a wide range of pressure and capacity selections.

Rotary Screw Compressors

Rotary air compressors are positive displacement compressors. The most common rotary air compressor is the single stage helical or spiral lobe oil flooded screw air compressor. These compressors consist of two rotors within a casing where the rotors compress the air internally. There are no valves. These units are basically oil cooled (with air cooled or water cooled oil coolers) where the oil seals the internal clearances.

Since the cooling takes place right inside the compressor, the working parts never experience extreme operating temperatures. The rotary compressor, therefore, is a continuous duty, air cooled or water cooled compressor package.

Rotary screw air compressors are easy to maintain and operate. Capacity control for these compressors is accomplished by variable speed and variable compressor displacement. For the latter control technique, a slide valve is positioned in the casing. As the compressor capacity is reduced, the slide valve opens, bypassing a portion of the compressed air back to the suction. Advantages of the rotary screw compressor include smooth, pulse-free air output in a compact size with high output volume over a long life.

The oil free rotary screw air compressor utilizes specially designed air ends to compress air without oil in the compression chamber yielding true oil free air. Oil free rotary screw air compressors are available air cooled and water cooled and provide the same flexibility as oil flooded rotaries when oil free air is required.

Centrifugal Compressors

The centrifugal air compressor is a dynamic compressor which depends on transfer of energy from a rotating impeller to the air.

Centrifugal compressors produce high-pressure discharge by converting angular momentum imparted by the rotating impeller (dynamic displacement). In order to do this efficiently, centrifugal compressors rotate at higher speeds than the other types of compressors. These types of compressors are also designed for higher capacity because flow through the compressor is continuous.

Adjusting the inlet guide vanes is the most common method to control capacity of a centrifugal compressor. By closing the guide vanes, volumetric flows and capacity are reduced.

The centrifugal air compressor is an oil free compressor by design. The oil lubricated running gear is separated from the air by shaft seals and atmospheric vents.

High Pressure Compressor

High pressure air compressors feature base-mounted piston technology that provides pressure as high as 5,000 psig (345 barg). Typical applications include refueling stations, PBM, power plants and engine starting. Using the same durable construction found in all of our two-stage reciprocating compressors, the high pressure units offer reliability, long life and easy maintenance.

Refrigeration Air Dryers

Refrigerated compressed air dryer

Get a low-cost way to remove water from compressed air, by installing a refrigerated compressed air dryer and avoid condensate problems.

A refrigerated compressed air dryer is a type of compressed air dryer, used to dry compressed air. Compressed air always contains water, coming from the air that is sucked in by the compressor.

To protect your piping, tools and equipment, it's best to use a compressed air dryer to dry the air.
Why a refrigerated compressed air dryer?

refrigerated air dryer

Refrigerated compressed air dryers are one of the most common used types of air dryers (for other types, check out our general page on compressed air dryers). They are simple in design, need very little maintenance and are relatively cheap.

A refrigerated compressed air dryer is the standard choice if you're shopping for a dryer and don't have special requirements, like an ultra-low dewpoint. They don't need much or any special maintenance and
if you buy a quality one, and install it properly, it's basically set-and-forget.
How does it work?

As the name implies, a refrigerated air dryer works by cooling down the air (like a refrigerator). The warm wet air enters the dryer, where it is cooled down to about 3 degrees Celsius. All water vapor that was in the air condenses into water. Much like your window does on a cold day. The liquid water is then removed from the compressed air by a water-trap.

After that, the cold air is re-heated to room temperature. Since a lot of water has condensed into water, the air is now much dryer.

The cooling is done in the same way as your freezer and fridge are cooled. In a separate circuit, liquid refrigerant is evaporated in the evaporator, to cool down the warm compressed air. The air is cooled,
while the refrigerant gets warmer. The refrigerant is compressed by a small compressor and cooled again
in the condenser.

Here are two pictures of the inside of an old refrigerated compressed air dryer. You can see the various parts of the refrigerant circuit (with refrigerant compressor and condensor). You can also see the condensate trap with discharge lines.

The evaporator (where the refrigerant cooles down the compressed air) is located at the top of the dryer (the whole area at the top is the insulated evaporator.

In the background you see the refrigerant circuit of a compressed air dryer. In the middle is the condensate trap (with water discharge lines).

inside-old-refrigerated-compressed-air-dryer1

At the right the condensor with cooling fan. In the middle you see the refrigerant pipes that go to the evaporator. At the left the condensate trap again.
Types of refrigerated compressed air dryers

There are basically two types of refrigerated compressed air dryers. Cycling and non-cycling. The advantage of the cycling dryer is that it will increase or decrease cooling capacity according to air use. This reduces the energy used and saves you money.

The non-cycling is the most common type and is extremely reliable and have the lowest maintenance
costs.

Absorption Air Dryers

Absorption Air Dryer

These types of dryers have two towers, and in some cases 3 towers or pressure vessels.

Both of these are filled with absorbent materials such as activated alumina, silica gel, molecular mesh or other adsorbent materials.

In these drives, compressed air, by passing through the moisture absorbing materials contained in these tanks, has largely lost its moisture.

After absorbing water by these materials, Dyer uses the compressed air produced in the system to immerse the absorbent material in the substrate and repel moisture.

The dew point pressure absorber reduces compressed air to prevent water distillation.

In these dryers, the dew point is about -40 ?C.

In some industries, the dew point needed for work is -70 ?C, which means that due to lower temperatures, the amount of water distillation is also lower.

Absorbent dryers use a variety of methods to filter compressed air.
Types of absorbent dryers:
Absorbent dry heaters

Thermal Absorbers

Blow-dry heat exchangers
Absorbent Dryers:
In these devices, some of the compressed air is driven into one of the resting towers. This dry air passes through saturated adsorbent materials and releases moisture through an exhaust to air. This The cycle is called the absorbing material recovery cycle
Thermal absorption dryers:
In this type of dryer, the dry air first passes through a high performance external heater, then returns to the resting tower and recovers the absorbent material using hot air. As this method Hot air is used to dry the saturated absorbent material, half of the dry compressed air is needed in this regard compared to non-heated absorption dryers.

Blower Heat Exchanger:
In this technology, the machine is equipped with a centrifugal blower. The blower is designed to suck the air and transfer it from a sweatshield and then pass it through the tower at rest. Thus, the moisture content of The adsorbent material is driven. In other words, the centrifuge sweeps the air into the heater and then drains it into the resting tower where the absorbent material is saturated with moisture and blurs the absorbent material. Comparing this type of dryer with Two other types should be added that they are more expensive than the two dryers in terms of price, but instead, maintenance costs and operating costs are lower due to the lack of use or very little use of compressed air for the recovery of adsorbent materials.

Smooth Dryers:
The compressor is available as a supplier of absorbent dryers with a dew point of -70 ° C and environmental conditions with a relative humidity of 100% and an incoming temperature of +35 ° C and other facilities such as dew point change, steam regeneration, limiting keys, Pressure control devices, measuring instruments, adaptability for outdoor operation, and the possibility of outlet for periodic services and maintenance operations, are for use in various industries. The adsorption circuits provided by Behsan Company, the company's construction Valid European and American Certificates are provided with valid warranties and warranties.

Advantages of the perfect dryers:
Easy maintenance

Reliable performance with high quality

Energy Saving

Poor pressure drop

Pleated Air / Oil Separators

One common method of increasing the capacity of a given sized air-oil separator is through the use of pleated filter media.

In this case, the filter media is processed through a machine whereby the normally flat surface is “pleated” or induced into a wave-like appearance.

A separator con-figured in this manner can then be suited for approximately 2x the air flow capacity, as that of a standard air-oil separator, manufactured in the standard, wrapped method.
