Design and Applications

We offer a complete range of Zander filter cartridges with integrated prefiltration, including high end units. High end filters suggest a large pleated surface in combination with a maximum cavity volume of 96%. This provides for a very low differential pressure which cuts operating costs.

The unique four-phase pleated element design is effective in trapping particulate and residual moisture to 0.01 micron and residual oil to 0.005 ppm at 99.9999% efficiency while providing the longest service life (compared with traditional rolled elements) and lowest cost of operation in the business.

A tie rod construction guarantees firmly secured elements, even with pulsating system pressures. Therefore self-releasing end caps (as with conventional elements) are excluded. Another advantage is the use of coalescing media and top-quality stainless steel support cylinders inside and outside.

Filter Type Applications
Series V Pre-filters for separating coarse particles
Ecomist Series For general purpose protection against particles, oil and water
Series Z, ZP Fine filters for separating oil, water, and particles
Series X, XP Ultra-fine filter for separating oil, water, and particles
Series XP4 Super-ultra-fine filters for separating oil, water, and particles
Series ZLV Paint-compatible fine filters for separating particles
Series XLV Paint-compatible ultra-fine filters for separating particles
Series A Activated carbon layer for separating oil vapour and aerosols
Series KTA Cartridge with activated carbon adsorbents for separating oil vapour/spray, elimination of odours, taste substances, etc.

Benefits

Due to unique pleating technology Zander filter elements are very economical to operate and maintain as compared with conventional wrapped filters. For example, a 200 HP compressor with a pleated filter will save about $1200/year on energy if a differential pressure is reduced by 3 PSI (based on 8000 running hours/year and $0.075/kWh). Besides, a lower operating pressure diminishes wear and maintenance of the compressor itself.
Up to 60% longer filter element service life.
You can also benefit from Zander quality in almost all other manufactures' housings: Ultrafilter, Hankison, Walker, Deltech, Hiross, Domnick Hunter. Please refer to interchangeability tables.

Specification

Filter Type Description
Series V The prefilter range mainly takes out particles from the compressed air. The microfilter features a long service life with constant efficiency. The efficiency is 99.99% of all particles of 3 micron and larger. There are fine particles smaller than 3 micron, such as dust and especially oil aerosols; they need to be filtered out by a fine coalescing filter.
Ecomist Series Removes particles down to 1 micron, including water and oil, providing a maximum remaining aerosol content of 0.5 ppm.
Series Z Efficiency 99.99% at 1 micron. Oil retention down to approximately 0.5 ppm at 100 psig and 68F (20C).
Series Y Efficiency 99.99% at 0.01 micron. Oil retention down to approximately 0.1 ppm at 100 psig and 68F (20C).
Series X Efficiency 99.9999% at 0.01 micron. Oil retention down to approximately 0.01 ppm at 100 psig and 68F (20C). Performance is validated. If an even better quality of compressed air to remove the oil vapours, then an adsorption type filter is required.
Series A Incorporates an activated carbon adsorption bed together with an integrated dust filter. Vapour removal to 0.005 ppm at 100 psig and 68F (20C). It is always preceded by a microfilter series XP to remove oil aerosols.
Series ZP Efficiency 99.9999% at 1 micron. Oil retention is 0.5 ppm at 100 psig and 68F (20C).
Series XP Efficiency 99.99999% at 0.01 micron. Oil retention is 0.01 ppm at 100 psig and 68F (20C). If an even better quality of compressed air to remove the oil vapours, then an adsorption type filter is required.
Series XP4 Efficiency 99.99999% at 0.01 micron. Oil retention is 0.001 ppm at 100 psig and 68F (20C).
