When it comes to your compressed air tools, it is important that you maintain clean and dry air in order to ensure optimum performance.
Filters, Regulators, and Lubricators (FRLs) are an easy way to help maintain your air at the point of use. There are many different combinations available for you to choose from so it will depend on the application as to what combination you will need.
Filter: Filters are used to remove solid and liquid contaminants from your air. Filters can be ordered in different styles depending on the application and the particles needing to be filtered. There are options available to remove oil aerosols and solids down to 0.3 microns.
Regulator: Regulators help provide controlled, consistent air pressure to the specified piece of equipment. Your overall plant requirements may be 125psi but certain tools or equipment may only need 65psi. With an air regulator you are able to control the pressure needed at the tool and maintain optimum performance for that piece of equipment. Standard regulators have a range of 0-140psi.
Lubricators: Lubricators are used on pneumatic applications that need just a little oil to help maintain peak performance, reduce wear, and prolong service life. They are designed to provide the correct amount of oil to air ratio for general pneumatic applications. Lubricators should be installed close to the application to ensure optimum performance.
FRL’s can be purchased as individual pieces or in combo packs depending on your application.
