Two into one will go for Atlas Copco

The UD+ combines two filtration processes in one product.

According to the company, traditionally, two inline filters are needed to bring oil aerosol and solid particles in compressed air down to acceptable levels for most applications.

The new UD+ replaces those two filters, saving space and reducing pressure drops. It has glass fiber wrapped around the filter which Atlas Copco says offers more reliability over traditional, pleated filters which are prone to cracking.

“With the UD+, we launch a compressed air filter innovation that saves space, energy and money without compromising on reliability and air quality,” said Bert Derom, vice-president of marketing.

UD+’s reliability and performances are certified according to ISO 12500-1:2007 and ISO 8573-2:2007 standards by TÜV Rheinland. Models range from a capacity of 9 l/s to 8,000 l/s.
