Description
The Monnier International Ultraclean high ef ficiency oil
removing filters have been designed to provide high quality
compressed air (free from liquid and solid contaminants) for
pneumatic systems.
For use in applications where compressed air of a particularly
high quality is required. Typical examples include air bearings
on machine tools, air gauging equipment, instrument air
supplies, breathing air, etc.
Principal features:
- Internal and external high quality black anodised finish.
- Maximum flow 15.57 dm 3/s (33 scfm).
- Efficiency testing carried out in accordance with ISO 12500 at
51 mg/m 3 (40 ppm) inlet concentration.
- Oil efficiency = 99.95%.
- Oil carryover less than 0.025 5 mg/m3 (0.02 ppm).
- Particle efficiency = 99.6%.
- 100% water removal in liquid or aerosol form at line temperature.
- Polycarbonate bowl.
Available types:
IC3AM With pilot operated automatic drain.
With semi-automatic dump valve for quick action
IC3DM
manual override.

Application
Monnier Oil-Coalescing Filters remove more than 99.95% of all
oil and dirt from the air you use. Oil vapors and aerosols are
removed by coalescent action, forming them into drops heavy
enough to be separated by gravity. Unlike absorption filters, they
do not become filled with oil, and will not clog on oil alone. If dirt
particles are removed upstream, these filters will separate oil
from air indefinitely.
Safety information, installation and maintenance
For full details see the Installation and Maintenance Instructions
(IM-P504-14) supplied with the product.
Warning:
Polycarbonate bowls are attacked by phosphate ester fluids,
solvents, paint thinners and carbon tetrachloride. These and similar
substances should never be allowed to come into contact with the
bowl. Certain compressor lubricating oils also contain additives
harmful to polycarbonate and, where there is any doubt we
recommend, in the interests of safety, that a metal bowl or a bowl
guard should be fitted.
Installation note:
Fit into a horizontal pipeline with the air flow in the direction of the
arrow and the bowl vertically downwards, as close as possible to
the equipment it is protecting.
It is advisable to fit a conventional pneumatic auto-filter,
(International IF2M) immediately upstream of the coalescing filter
to extend the life of the filter cartridge. On new installations, it is
as well to blow through the pipework before fitting the filter to
ensure that the initial pipescale and dirt is removed.
Points to note:
1. Coalescing filters should be installed as close as possible to
the equipment they are protecting.
2.Do not exceed the maximum flowrate (for any given pressure)
as shown on the graphs or there is chance that some of the
coalesced liquids will be re-entrained and carried on downstream.
3.Do not overload the filter cartridge or there will be a reduction
in its efficiency and/or life. It is advisable to fit a conventional
pneumatic auto-filter (International IF2AM) immediately in front of
the coalescing filter for maximum efficiency and life.
4.For hydrocarbon vapour and odour removal use the Monnier
IX1M International compressed air filter - For specific product data
see Technical Information sheet TI-P504-21.
How to order
