DESOUTTER AIR FILTER, REGULATOR AND LUBRICATOR

Why do you need a filter regulator lubbricator ( FRL)  ?

Air Filter :

Filter separates impurities such as water and solid particles.

Not using filters in combination with air tools leads to shorter service life, higher maintenance costs and lower efficiency. Old air systems with cool dryers, for instance, generate a lot of rust and running tools without installing a filter could damage the tool in less than a week

Desoutter filters separate up to 98% of the water when operating within their working range. All three types (Small, Medium, and Big) are very low pressure drop.

Air Pressure Regulators :

The regulator ensures that the pre-set working pressure remains constant - regardless of pressure variations in the intake air and minor vibrations in the airflow rate. For example, a pressure of 1 bar higher than necessary results in a 16% increase in air consumption.

Spring controlled regulators are quick acting and therefore should be used for all types of air tools.

Lubricators :

If lubricators are not used, tool motor vanes will need to be changed more often, the life of the vanes may decrease to as little as 1/10th of the normal working time. The oil fog lubricator is the most common type of lubricator. It supplies drops of oil to the air hose.
