Filters and Filter Elements

Atlas Copco USA - Edmac Filter
Why are they important?
Ambient air contains all kinds of particles, microbes, water and chemical gases. When this air gets compressed, these contaminants become concentrated and more destructive, so it’s vital to filter the air before it gets compressed. Depending on your process, your output air also may need filtration. Compressor lubricants require efficient filtration to keep your machine running reliably. See the pattern? Filters are important – and the right filters optimize your compressor’s performance. That saves you money. How much savings could you be looking at? Without proper flow, operating efficiency can drop by 3%. For a 200 horsepower air compressor running 24/7 at 8 cents per kWh, having the right filter can save over $3,000 a year!

What different types are there?
There’s a recommended filter or filter element for every air compressor, and Edmac has literally hundreds of thousands of them in stock.
