Atlas Copco offers you 4 ranges

of filters :

The range of Atlas Copco filters,

when used in the right combinations,


can provide clean air from 9 to
7,200 l/s.

Atlas Copcos filters are de-

signed to combine maximum contaminant removal efficiency with


minimum pressure drop, resulting in
a low energy consumption in your
compressed air system.

Keep in mind, a pressure drop of

just 0.3 bar (4 psi) will cost you a required power increase of approximately 2 %.

Features and benefits

Differential pressure gauge (not re-

quired on QD):
- with dual face, allows filter installation in any position;
- indicates the optimum replacement time;
- sizes 9, 17 and 32 equipped with
pressure differential indicator
(pop-up type);
- voltage-free contact for remote indication (optional).

Die cast aluminium housing (up to

size 520) with epoxy powder paint on


the outside and anodised surface treatment inside prevents corrosion and ensures extra long lifetime.
3 Simple and reliable push on elements for easy and fast replacement with
minimum free space required under the
filter. No tie rod.

7 Automatic drain (not required on
DDp and QD) with manual override and
quick coupling connection removes
separated liquid from the filter, allows
filter depressurisation and facilitates
drain connection.
