KSI Air/Oil Separators - Top Quality out of OEM Production
Compressed air is being used today for practically all industrial purposes. Compressors and vacuum pumps are used in all areas of construction, machinery and food industry, pharmaceutical and electro industries. KSI ECOCOMP oil separation cartridges are important elements in the chain of compressed air technology.
KSI ECOCOMP® oil control cartridges function according to the Coelescer principle. Micro-glasfibersegments separate drop-lets of oil of the condensed compressed air and lead them back in larger drops of oil and thereby re-introduce them into the machinery circulation. The process of oil separation continues into the submircro range. Due to this process, the consumption of oil in the compression device, as well as oil entrance into the connected compressed air network is being minimized.
KSI ECOCOMP oil separation cartridges can be used for all ordinary types of lubrication oil, be it mineral, synthetic or semisynthetic oil.
Dirt sedimentation like for example air contamination, oil ageing sediments or friction limit the life span of oil separation cartridges. The final pressure difference is fixed individually by each machinery manufacturer and therefore differs from one manufacturer to another. Final values usually oscillate between 0,8 bar and 1 bar in the case of condensers and 0,5 bar in case of vacuum pumps. The life span of the elements is limited by sedimentation of solid materials in the fine separating segment and consequential rising pressure differential. Appropriate change of oil and air filtering elements and observation of oil change intervals lengthen the life span of oil separation cartridges. Naturally the selection of oil affects the time of utility. Only proved oil types, insensitive to water should be used. Operating conditions also influence decisively the life span. External temperature, machinery refrigeration and oil temperature as well as foreign elements in the air can be detrimental for the quality and life span of oil.
KSI oil separation cartridges comply with DIN / ISO norms and offer the necessary security, which is irrenouncable for nowadays compressed air technology.
