The air filter is a part of filtering air dust and dirt, and the filtered clean air is compressed into the compression chamber. If the air filter plugs and damages, a large number of dust particles and even dirt will enter the compression chamber to circulate, which will lead to the life of lubricating oil filter and oil-gas separator reduced, more seriously, will lead to a large number of particles directly into the bearing chamber, making the lubrication effect destroyed, leading to bearing wear, reduce the key. Service life of components.
Therefore, the air filter element should be replaced in time. Under normal circumstances, the air filter element is replaced every 1000-1500 hours. In some places where the air environment is especially bad, such as circuit board factories, ceramic factories, cotton spinning factories, wood processing factories, air filter elements can be replaced every 500 hours according to the situation.
Methods of replacing air filter elements in Air Compressors:
1）Unscrew the gland nut.
2）Remove the air filter element.
3）Compressed air is used to blow out the dust particles on the outside surface of the air filter core from the inner cavity of the air filter element.
