Uncleaned air in your tanks and pipelines can eat away at your equipment. The combination of heat, oil, and moisture is the perfect environment for microbial growth to occur that can cause irreparable damage to your process line. With compressed air, filtration becomes even more important as the act of compression increases the growth of contaminants.
Steam can cause irreparable damage to your processing equipment in the form of rust, scale, and corrosion. Not only that, but that excess moisture can also speed up the degradation of various plastics and elastomers. With proper filtration, you can eliminate costly damage to your equipment.
Dirty water is capable of wreaking havoc on equipment at an accelerated rate compared to air, due to the particles being packed closer together,
and thus can remain on surfaces longer. For instance, process water may
not directly come into contact with your finished product but its indirect contact can have potentially harmful effects. On the other hand, ingredient water comes in direct contact with your final product so filtration is even more important.
