An innovative concept...
... convincing in every detail
The standard needlefelt drainage layer has a high
thermostability (up to 120 °C) compared with the foamed plastic
used in other filter products. It is also chemically and mechanically
highly resistant and free of silicone. Combined with the reliable
construction, the filter element is absolutely safe against a
blow-up or damage of the drainage layer. A continual use of the
whole filter surface is thus realised.
The closing mechanism is a safety feature that
allows 100 % control during opening of the filter housing. If
the housing is opened while still under pressure, an audible warning
signal will be given.

Condensate from compressed-air filtration is nearly
always aggressive, so that unprotected housings would be exposed
to corrosion. CLEARPOINT filter housings are made of seawater-resistant
aluminium and are additionally anodised inside. This offers increased
corrosion protection, while the permanently smooth surface also
reduces the flow resistance.
With an extremely high void volume of 96%,
the boron silicate filter material ensures that the pressure loss
is kept to a minimum. Conventional filter material of sintered
polyethylene only has a void volume of 45%. With CLEARPOINT
filters, the cross-sectional area available for flow is therefore
more than twice as large.
By the way, conventional filter media are often hydrophilic, so
that the fibres will swell up and reduce the void volume. The
filter then becomes clogged, the pressure loss increases, and
so do the operating costs. By contrast, the material of CLEARPOINT
filter elements is impregnated as a standard. This prevents swelling
up of the filter material, permits a steady differential pressure,
and avoids unnecessary expenditure.
CLEARPOINT filter elements are installed
without tie-rods so that the cross-sectional area is fully available.
This reduces the flow resistance, while the space required for
element replacement is only about one third compared with other
designs - a great advantage under spatially restricted conditions.
Thanks to the innovative push-fit design of the filter elements,
replacement is very fast and simple. The element is held securely
in a leak tight position by an O-ring seal at the top cap and
three supports at the bottom of the housing.
Highly economical! The flow optimised inlet into
the filter element reduces flow resistance up to 75%.
The threaded connections of the CLEARPOINT
compressed air filters are generously dimensioned in comparison
to other filters on the market. They are especially matched to
the typical pipe diameters of various compressor brands, thus
eliminating energy consuming pipe reductions. When combining two
or more CLEARPOINT filters, the innovative connection keeps
up the fill diameter flow.
