Advantages of The Extractor/Dryer® Compressed Air Filter

The patented Extractor/Dryer® is a two-stage, point-of-use compressed air filter. Designed primarily for the final usage of air, it will remove water, oil and other contaminates from compressed air lines. The Extractor/Dryer® was developed for air driven tools, paint spraying, manufacturing equipment, or any other compressed air equipment to produce clean, dry compressed air. Additional benefits for using the Extractor/Dryer include:

  • The Extractor/Dryer® is not flow sensitive. It is a patented media depth filter that does not require constant airflow to remove moisture
  • It is a two-stage coalescing depth filter
  • Standard 5 micron rating. Lower micron rating is available
  • Extended equipment life
  • Improved finished product quality
  • Savings on costly repairs to damaged equipment

Protect and preserve your pneumatic equipment with the Extractor/Dryer®.

Standard Features of the Extractor/Dryer®

  • Differential Pressure Gauge (all models except 520's and 195A). This allows the user to visually see the change from green to red, indicating a pressure drop of 10 PSI or greater. When this occurs, the air filter elements will need to be serviced. Service Kits are available for all models
  • Weep Drain - Allows minimal, continuous flow of contaminated air to escape the base of the unit.  Automatic Float Drains are available for all models
  • Mounting Brackets (all models except 520's and 195A) - Allows for easy and protective mounting of your Extractor/Dryer.

Applications for the Extractor/Dryer®

The Extractor/Dryer® can help clean up contaminated airlines for many applications, including:

  • Industrial Manufacturing
  • Auto Paint and Body Shops
  • Bakery Equipment
  • Brewery Bottling
  • Construction
  • Electronics
  • Injection Molding
  • Hospital Equipment
  • Transit Systems
  • Textile Needles
  • Sandblasting
  • And more!

Point-of-Use Location to Remove Moisture from Compressed Air Lines                   

La-Man® takes a different approach to cleaning up contaminated compressed air lines. Our Extractor/Dryer® works optimally when it is located at the point-of-use in an application. This allows the air from the compressor to cool, thus condensing to liquid. This also enables the Extractor/Dryer® to remove moisture from compressed airlines. The shortest distance from our filter to the point-of-use ensures cleaner air, therefore protecting your valuable machinery and equipment.

 How-Extractor-Dryers-Work

How Extractor/Dryers® Work: 

Compressed air containing tiny particles of dirt, dust, oil and moisture enters the first stage of the Extractor/Dryer®.
A coalescing effect occurs as air passes through a cartridge mesh filter that captures particles and causes moisture to form larger droplets. 
Air velocity lessens as it enters the extraction chamber allowing particles to collect and moisture to condense on the honeycomb. 
Particle laden water flows along the bottom and out the drain. 
Air passes through the second stage, wire supported fiber, filter cartridge that captures remaining particles down to 5 micron.
Remaining moisture and contaminates are dried and filtered in the second stage filter.
Exhaust air is clean and dry - no dirt, rust, oil or water droplets to disrupt air equipment operation.
