Balston Coalescing Compressed Air Filters
Balston Coalescing Compressed Air Filters protect your equipment and delicate instruments from the dirt, water, and oil usually found in compressed air. Balston filters remove these contaminants at an efficiency rate of 99.99% for 0.01 micron particles and droplets. Liquid is channelled from the filter cartridge to an automatic drain as rapidly as it enters the filter. This allows the filter to continuously remove liquids for an unlimited time without loss of efficiency or flow capacity.

Balston Coalescing Filters are constructed of anodized aluminum and stainless steel to ensure long term reliability and performance. The larger, mainline filters (3" pipe and up) are ASME code stamped, and are constructed of carbon steel with epoxy coated internals. Balston filters require minimal maintenance, and most models can be serviced without the need of any tools.
