Pneumatic Filters

Increase performance of your pneumatic systems

Powering pneumatic machines requires clean and conditioned air or gas. Our pneumatic filters are designed to work together with regulators and lubricators (FRL units), to offer outstanding performance and a lower-cost alternative to traditional sintered-metal filters.

Specifically designed to provide an excellent combination of particulate filtration, air flow and back pressure performance, while complying with strength and aesthetic requirements, these single-component molded filters:

  • Meet your filtration requirements – Optimized design meets filtration, airflow and pressure drop requirements.
  • Reduce costs – Sintered polymer filters are more cost-effective than sintered metal.
  • Improve machine longevity – Design is optimized for reliability, efficiency and longevity of pneumatic machinery.

Features

  • Work together with regulators and lubricators (FRL units) to deliver clean and conditioned compressed air or gas
  • Strong and rigid for maximum service life and effectiveness
  • More cost effective than traditional sintered metal filters

Materials Offered

  • Advanced porous materials (PE, PP)

Formats Available

  • 3D molded shapes

Pneumatic Silencers

Effectively reduce pneumatic equipment noise

Engineered to provide an optimal balance between noise reduction and acceptable backpressure in the pneumatic system, our porous plastic silencers offer numerous advantages over metal acoustical silencers.

Our porous plastic silencers are designed with a significantly lower weight along with greatly improved corrosion resistance and the ability to filter particles and aerosols. This leads to greater durability, assembly speed and cost-efficiency for our partners. Designed with a solid integrated threaded adapter to ensure easy mounting on pneumatic equipment, our silencers:

  • Fit most standard valves – Offered in an extensive selection of sizes designed to fit most standard valves, including NPT, BSP, M5 and “push-in” styles. 
  • Enhance equipment longevity – Effectively filters particulates and aerosols.
  • Reduce pneumatic equipment noise – Engineered with a porous plastic structure, offering greater noise reduction compared to metal and improved corrosion resistance.

Features

  • Provide an optimal balance between noise reduction and backpressure
  • Lower weight, and improved corrosion resistance vs. metal acoustic silencers
  • Integrated thread adaptor to ensure easy mounting on pneumatic equipment

Materials Offered

  • Advanced porous materials (PE)

Formats Available

  • 3D molded shapes
  • Sizes designed to fit most standard valves including: NPT, BSP, M5 and “push-in” styles
