Compressor filters, also known as air compressor filters or compressed air filters, are devices used in compressed air systems to remove contaminants from the compressed air before it is used in various applications. Compressed air systems can pick up contaminants such as dust, dirt, oil, water, and other particles during the compression process or from the environment. These contaminants can cause damage to equipment or affect the quality of the compressed air, which can lead to problems in downstream applications.

Compressor filters are designed to remove these contaminants from the compressed air by using different types of filter media, such as pleated paper, activated carbon, or synthetic fibers. The filters may also include a desiccant material to remove moisture from the compressed air. Compressor filters are typically installed in the compressed air system downstream from the compressor, but before the point of use. They may be integrated into the compressor unit or installed as a separate unit in the piping system.

The type and size of compressor filter needed depend on the specific application, the level of air purity required, and the flow rate of the compressed air. Compressor filters are commonly used in a wide range of industries, including automotive, food and beverage, pharmaceutical, and electronics manufacturing, among others.
