Model F222/F451 Liquid/Particle Filter
Compressed air filters protect equipment and instrumentation from harmful contaminants such as dirt, water and oil. Liquids are continuously coalesced and released through the manual drain valves. Replaceable filter element removes particles and droplets as small as 0.01 micron with 93% efficiency. Units have 1/4" female NPT inlet and outlet and manual drain valve.

- What might be the cause for Magnehelic® gages filling approximately 1/3 full of water, with lots of liquid droplets on the glass. Both are outside mounted on the side of an air stripping tower. One is a differential pressure gage that measures the pressure drop across a pitot tube. The other just measures the back pressure in the stripper. What can be done to fix the malfunction?
- It looks like you’re getting some condensation in the Magnehelic®, which is causing it to collect on the bottom of the face. Since the Magnehelic® is not encapsulated, it is not recommended to be used in applications where moisture can form. One option to fix the problem is installing a liquid filter (like an F222) to filter out that moisture. Another option is to install a Capsuhelic (Series 4000), which is made to handle both air and liquid.
