Why is my air compressor filter full every week?
As you know, compressed air filters protect your machine from dirt, dust, oil and water. These contaminants are extremely common in the areas you would find a compressed air system and will wear down your machine if not properly filtered out.
With all that being said, if your air compressor equipment’s filter is full every week then I would take a look at where your compressor is being stored. The excessive use of filters indicates there are large amounts of contaminants in the air.
Below are a few items to help resolve the air pollution issue:
