Installations have been done on units
from the following manufacturers:
New Flyer®, MCI®, Nova/RTS® & Orion®
Benefits Reported By
removal of oil from system before
contamination of air dryer can occur.
Filter reduces the temperature of the incoming air to the air
dryer to further enhance water removal.
Action of unit
contains and limits carbonization of the main
air line (prevents clogging!).
Replacement of air line reduced to
one single line between
compressor and filter unit.
Completely accessible in engine compartment, without the need
to place the bus on a lift!
Filter prolongs the air dryer operating life and all related
air brake and pneumatic components in the system.
Installation leads to
reduced maintenance costs and limits
Enhanced operation of the air dryer
virtually eliminates air
line water freeze up in winter operating conditions!
Increased service life of air suspension. Oil removal
protects the rubber bellows from the detergent enriched oil!
Enhanced service life of air equipment
allows better performance and lessens the occurrence of air leaks. These air leaks increase
compressor cycle time and increase oil migration throughout the compressed air
Installation in engine compartment is
best place for
protection of filter from elements. Other units mount near or even after the air dryer and
become susceptible to damage.
In addition, some of these "other units" drain the trapped
contaminates on to road surfaces!! This is simply not a very good idea taking
the environment into account.
If a record is kept of the oil drained from the filter, the results can be used to gauge compressor performance, and predict when the compressor will need maintenance, or replacement. This has solved the “When should we replace the compressor problem...Instead of an automatic two year replacement cycle for every bus, replacement is now done only when required; as indicated by the amount of oil/carbon in the filter.
