air compressor oil filtration System

Air Compressor Filtration System

USPI Air Compressor Inline Filtration systems (Model: USPI 1000H/C) are commonly used on: air compressors, engines or turbines (i.e. small pressurized systems and reservoirs).

The 1000H/C protects your air compressor by keeping the compressor oil clean and dry. It is easy to operate (i.e. take an oil sample, monitor filter element life, change filter elements and drain canisters) and employs a simple approach to filtering that removes both solid contaminants and moisture from compressor fluids, leading to longer fluid and equipment life.

  • Easy installation and operation
  • No pumps and motors to set up or maintain
  • Installation requires only two isolation ball valves, four compression fittings and tubing
  • Sample probe makes taking oil samples quick and easy
  • Multi-pass depth filtration reduces particulate and water contamination
  • Filtration down to one micron (dependent upon USPI filter element chosen)
  • Can restore or bring oil to cleaner-than-new levels
  • Filter elements each hold about 12 pounds of solid and 5 quarts of water contaminants
  • Simple payback is normally under six months
  • Increases oil life from typical 2,000 hours; greater than 20,000 hours have been recorded with USPI inline filtration systems (using a quality USPI synthetic or semi-synthetic fluid)
  • Typically doubles compressor, engine, and turbine life
  • Typically extends pump life tenfold
