“We finally have no water going to the guillotine. This is an excellent product.”

The U.K. Code of Practice for Food-Grade Air (which is adopted in most countries) helps define three types of compressed air systems and air purification specifications required for each. The Code defines three specific types of compressed air systems in the food industry; systems with direct contact with food, non-contact high-risk, and non-contact low-risk.
By working alongside many food processors and manufactures we have identified many problems from this industry caused by liquid and solid particulate contaminates in compressed air lines across all three types of compressed air systems and have created a solution to eliminate this problem for companies, making them much more efficient and competitive.
Expel stops solenoid valves failing because of water and other particulates contaminating compressed air lines down to 1 micron. This will ensure the smooth operation of solenoids, eliminating the risk of violating waste regulations and Local Authority byelaws.
Additionally, damp and dirty compressed air causes internal corrosion of the jet nozzles, decreasing their life-cycle and adding to your costs.
By installing an Expel air compressor filter dryer at point of use means that this problem will be eradicated. This will enable you to save money, make your site more efficient and reduce your wastage.
How can Expel help the food industry?
At Original AVG our dedicated team have created EXPEL, a solution that addresses the problems that the food industry has been having with their compressed air lines.
Original AVG has designed and manufactured the EXPEL filter. This easy to fit air compressor filter dryer continuously removes ALL liquids from compressed air systems, as well as solids down to 1 micron and the internals of the filter NEVER need changing. The result is no more pneumatic equipment failure or downtime because of wet and dirty air.
Expel is the perfect compressed air filter for food industry applications. It is the only compressed air filter that can separate liquids and solid contaminants from a compressed air line with zero maintenance. We are aware that during routine inspections our customers may want to inspect Expel, so we have designed Expel so it can easily be dismantled, cleaned and reassembled. Additionally, we have designed Expel with the concern for wastage in mind. Our Expel filter requires no replacement filter elements and has been manufactured so it is built to last and is corrosion resistant to keep ongoing costs and wastage to a minimum.
