Compressed air filtration requirements
Published:  25 August, 2021

HI-LINE INDUSTRIES, an established and reputable UK manufacturer of high-quality compressed air purification equipment, has announced it is able to offer a cost-effective and proven way of meeting the ongoing demand for replacement compressed air filters. The company says rather than pay for expensive and often low-efficiency OEM filters, an increasing number are turning to Hi-line’s vast range of alternative elements, which frequently provide an ‘upgrade’ on competitor solutions at less cost.

Hi-line says it is not only renowned for its proprietary range of high-quality filter housings and energy-efficient elements, but its vast range of alternative elements to ‘upgrade’ and replace competitor products and there is no longer any need to pay a premium for replacement compressed air filters as Hi-line’s alternative range of flow elements can cost circa 60-70% less than those available from compressor manufacturers. When considering there could be four elements on one system, the saving is significant.

Hi-line says the alternative elements it produces provide an exact match with the size and connection specifications of the originals and its elements offer at least the performance of the original, although in many cases they actually provide higher performance because the company upgrades the technology. For instance, Hi-line uses pleated filter media rather than wrapped as it offers four times the cross-sectional area of standard elements.

The larger cross-sectional area provides a number of important advantages, including lower pressure drop, which in turn saves energy as the compressor does not have to work as hard to force air through the filter. Further benefits include higher contamination-holding capacity, longer service life and greater flow characteristics - all for less financial outlay.
