Atlas Copco’s next-generation air filters now feature InPass technology to simplify maintenance and reduce costs significantly. The new range also gives customers the flexibility to choose between advanced filter media to match their specific air quality requirements, according to the company.
“Filtration is a crucial but sometimes overlooked component of a compressed air system,” the company said in a statement. “There is an assumption that all filters do the same job and have the same filtration properties. However, untreated or poorly treated compressed air can contain dirt, water, and oil, compromising tools, production processes, and final products. That is why Atlas Copco offers a complete range of filters that remove even the smallest contaminants — from dust to water and oil vapors.
“Until now, servicing a filter involved shutting down the entire compressed air system or installing three-valve bypasses around every filter. The InPass re-directs the air through the filter head during maintenance, allowing for safe filter cartridge replacement without interruption of the airflow. This means there is no need to install extra piping around the filters or halt production maintenance. As a result, the In Pass saves customers on both installation and operational costs by allowing quick, seamless service.”
