Atlas Copco pioneers two-in-one coalescing filter technology
March 2015, Antwerp, Belgium – Atlas Copco has launched the UD+ coalescing compressed air filters, which combine two filtration processes in one product. The UD+ is unique in the market and offers energy savings, efficiency gains and reliably clean compressed air.
One UD+ filter outperforming two regular ones
Traditionally, two inline filters are needed to bring oil aerosol and solid particles in the compressed air down to acceptable levels for most applications (ISO 8573-1 Oil class 1 and 2; ISO 8573-1 Solid particle class 1). The UD+ replaces those two filters, saving space and reducing pressure drops with 40%. Extensive testing shows the UD+ achieves the excellent air quality of two traditional filters, thanks to the UD+’s innovative glass fiber filter media package that is wrapped around the filter. This technology is not only more efficient, it also offers increased reliability over traditional, pleated filters, which are prone to cracking. Learn more about the UD+’s working principle.
