OIL-X OVR Oil Vapour Removal filters are designed to reduce oil vapour and also overcome the issues of traditional loose filled carbon towers. The loose filled beds of carbon towers offer reduced contact time due to unrestricted air channelling, meaning they are prone to movement of the carbon adsorbent during operation; resulting in degrading performance, attrition of the adsorbent material, high particulate generation and blockage of downstream filters.
Manufactured from extruded aluminium, the Parker domnick hunter OIL-X OVR is smaller and lighter than equivalent carbon towers. Compact activated carbon cartridges utilise a unique filling technique to maximise packing density of the adsorbent bed. Retained to prevent movement, 100% of the activated carbon bed is then utilised during operation, guaranteeing performance, whilst the heavy attrition, dusting and blocked particulate filters associated with carbon tower designs is eliminated. The use of cartridges also provides trouble free maintenance, reducing system downtime.
Oil free plant air can be affected by many factors such as pressure, temperature, air flow, oil concentration and humidity. The OIL-X OVR selection process considers all of these factors to ensure consistent outlet air quality over 12 months of continuous operation.
• Suitable for use with oil lubricated and oil-free compressors
• Tested in accordance with ISO8573-5 and 3rd party performance validated by Lloyds Register
• Can be installed in the compressor room for plant scale protection, at point of use to protect critical applications (or both if old, contaminated piping is in use)
• FDA Title 21 compliant & EC1935 exempt
• Unique adsorbent fill technique
• Large capacity bed reduces the number of units required but still offers a compact and light weight design with flexible inlet / outlet connectivity
• Simple, easy maintenance
Sizing and Selection
Important Note: For quoted air purity performance, compressed air filters must be sized correctly for minimum operating pressure and maximum inlet flow rate using the correction factors found in the Product Information Sheet.
Please note: The lifetime of the activated carbon filling can vary and is dependent on the contamination type and quantity and also on the humidity of the compressed air.
