In order to ensure that clean, dry compressed air gets to pneumatic components plants often use air dryers. These dryers use desiccant to pull moisture from compressed air. Typical life of desiccant is 3-5 years, with desiccant material replacement costing up to tens of thousands of dollars.
To maximize desiccant life, liquid/gas coalescers are typically installed upstream of the dryer to remove water and oil aerosols. In addition, After Filters are installed downstream of the dryer to capture particulates generated as the desiccant ages.
Pall Corporation, a leader in coalescing technologies, now offers replacement coalescers and After Filters for users of SPX Flow/Pneumatic Products and other coalescer manufacturers.
Pall-Fit Replacement Coalescers
Featuring Pall’s SeprasolTM Plus coalescer medium, our liquid/gas coalescers remove liquids and solids from high flow gas streams that contain high concentrations of liquids. Pall’s SepraSol Plus liquid/gas coalescers receive our proprietary full element oleophobic/hydrophobic treatment. Chemically treating the coalescer lowers the surface energy of the media and promotes rapid drainage of the coalesced liquids. This significantly increases the amount of liquid per square foot of media the coalescer can handle, and optimizes liquids removal in the existing housing size. Added benefits of the chemical treatment include lower saturated pressure drop for reduced operating costs, and rapid recovery from liquid slugs to protect the desiccant from upstream upsets.
Separating aerosols before entering the dryer maximizes desiccant life and helps prevent damage to the dryer inlet valve. The result is reduced desiccant replacement costs and extended valve life for significant savings in material, labor and downtime costs.

Pall-Fit Replacement After Filters
Pall’s high area After Filter cartridges have been designed specifically for use downstream of desiccant dryers. These long-life filters have up to 1.5X the area of other cartridges and have a 0.9 micron particle rating to capture abrasive dust particles coming off the dryer that can erode instruments, valve seats, air cylinders and pneumatic tools. Preventing particles from entering the stream means sustained equipment performance, longer component service life, and reduced maintenance and downtime costs.
