High-Risk Engineering Manager Robert Henzell was keen to improve the compressed air quality by stopping the issues with liquid water in the lines.
Expel offers a bespoke approach to compressed air filtration. Original AVG has purposely designed Expel so that the performance will not reduce over time, unlike traditional filters. Rather than retaining contaminants in a sponge or mesh material, Expel uses physics to discharge 99.999% of all liquid water, oil emulsion fluids and solid particulates out of the filter and into an automatic drain. Therefore, Expel offers an unrivalled performance, which remains consistent. The 10-year warranty on every Expel unit guarantees this revolutionary technology will remove liquid water, oil emulsion fluids and solid particulates down to 1 micron without requiring any replacement parts. For these reasons, the site’s High-Risk Engineering Manager chose Expel.
Two Expel units have been installed per slicing line, protecting the lines perfectly. The site has not experienced any problems with compressed air contamination since installing Expel at the point of use.
