Air Treatment Units (FRL)

Atmospheric air is polluted with gases, vapour, particles of various chemical compounds but also with dust of various shapes, structure and density usually swirling in the air. The composition and concentration of pollutants in the atmospheric air depends on the location and time of the year. All of these pollutants enter pneumatic systems enriched with impurities brought in during compression, unless they are removed from the air before and after the compression. In pneumatics, compressed air is prepared in special devices, air preparation units.

FRL compressed air preparation units responsible for filtration, regulation and lubrication etc. are made of plastics and metal alloys with highly durable techno-polymers. Diameters ranging from 1/8” to 2” and high flow rate values enable matching operating parameters with virtually each application. Among many other products, Tubes International offers:

  • Filters, fine filters and filters with activated carbon insert, which remove the remaining particles of oil, solvents or even odours. They are equipped with manual, semi-automatic or fully automatic condensate drain valves.
  • Reducers, filter-reducers or precision reducing valves maintain the pressure values at the desired constant level. In the event of a sudden pressure surge, they release the excess of air to the atmosphere.
  • Lubricators, which provide a lubricating agent to the compressed air. In a standard version, they are filled with oil by disassembly of the tank or via a top cap. The lubricators with automatic filling are available to special order.

They all are comprised in four different groups: BIT, SKILLAIR, NEW DEAL and SYNTESI.

AIR TREATMENT UNITS (FRL)

BIT

Due to its technical features the BIT air treatment range is particularly suitable for decentralised use near the final actuator.

Main features of BIT air treatment system:

  • compact design;
  • negligible load loss;
  • high reliability;
  • excellent quality to price relation.

Connections:

  • from 1/8″ and 1/4″

Maximal inlet pressure:

  • 13 bar
BIT

SKILLAIR

Skillair units incorporates modularity (various elements such as filters, lubricators, 3 way valves, progressive actuators and air take-offs can be joined together). Compact design allow to reach the same flow capacity as competition and at the same time remain the smallest (in terms of size dimensions) units on the market.
Each block or complete unit, for maintenance purpose, can be exchanged without dismantling remaining parts or supplying hoses.

Connections:

  • from 1/4″ to 2″

Maximal inlet pressure:

  • 13 bar
SKILLAIR

NEW DEAL

The entire New Deal range is top quality, reliable and heavy duty. Designed for high pressure and applications where high temperature or ambient conditions are critical.

Connections:

  • from 1/4″ to 1″

Maximal inlet pressure:

  • 18 bar
NEW DEAL

SYNTESI

Syntesi provides complete modularity and flexibility that Skillair units are recognized for. Modular unit features – a very simple yet effective system, that requires no brackets, stay bolts or yoke for assembling the elements. Therefore Syntesi is a simple and economical air treatment unit.

Connections:

  • 1/8″, 1/4″, 3/8″

Working pressure:

  • up to 15 bar
