Atlas Copco pioneers two-in-one coalescing filter technology

Atlas Copco has launched the UD+ coalescing compressed air filters, which combine two filtration processes in one product. The UD+ is unique in the market and offers energy savings, efficiency gains and reliably clean compressed air.

The UD+ is the newest addition to Atlas Copco’s extensive line of compressed air filter solutions. This two-in-one filter takes wrapped filter technology to a new level, combining the reliability and performance of wrapped filters with pressure drops lower than even pleated filters can achieve (40% less pressure drops).

“Our compressed air solutions are of the highest quality, so our air treatment solutions should be too,” explains Bert Derom, Vice-President Marketing. “With the UD+, we launch a compressed air filter innovation that saves space, energy and money without compromising on reliability and air quality.”

Traditionally, two inline filters are needed to bring oil aerosol and solid particles in the compressed air down to acceptable levels for most applications. The UD+ replaces those two filters, saving space and reducing pressure drops with 40%. Extensive testing shows the UD+ achieves the excellent air quality of two traditional filters, thanks to the UD+’s innovative glass fibre filter media package that is wrapped around the filter. This technology is not only more efficient, it also offers increased reliability over traditional, pleated filters, which are prone to cracking.

The UD+ comes equipped with components of the highest quality, protection layers and a thick package of wrapped, enhanced glass fibre filter media. The UD+’s reliability and performances are certified according to ISO 12500-1:2007 and ISO 8573-2:2007 standards by TÜV Rheinland. Available models range from a capacity of 9 l/s to 8000 l/s.
