Donaldson Cyclone Separators are designed for removal of liquid water and particulate from compressed air and gases. The DF-C Cyclone Separators deliver high separation efficiency at low pressure drop through an optimal flow-path design. The AG-Z (aluminum) Cyclone Water Separator has a three-piece aluminum housing.
How the Cyclone Water Separator Works
The compressed air is guided over the swirl vanes, which direct the compressed air into the housing. Liquid aerosols and particles flow down the filter housing and are drained out of the filter housing. The conical form of the lower filter bowl is designed to eliminate aerosol carry over. The turbulent free zone in the lower part of the filter housing prevents condensate from being picked up and "carried over" into the clean air.
