Centrifugal separators also called water separators, cyclone
separators, mechanical separators, or centrifuge separator use
centrifugal motion to force liquid water out of compressed air. The
spinning causes the condensate to join together on the centrifugal
separators walls when the condensate gains enough mass it falls to
the bottom of the separators bowl where it pools in the sump until
it is flushed out of the system by the automatic float drain
It is important to remove condensate because it corrodes exposed
metal components throughout the system sometimes destroying
expensive equipment. Centrifugal water separator designs are
installed downstream of aftercoolers, air receivers, and
refrigerated dryers. Our centrifugal separator design features an
internal spinner that removes large quantities of condensate by
centrifugal action. Water separators (air
compressor water separator) are
available for operating pressures up to 16 barg (232 psig).

Purification of Compressed Air is Needed"
Purification of air we breathe carries contaminants. Airborne
particles, water, microbes, and chemical gases enter compressors.
At a state these contaminants become concentrated and more
