Filter Removes Contaminants Down to .01 Micron

The .01 Micron SuperStar Filter from Walmec North America is designed to provide clean, dry, compressed air resulting in the removal of any vapors and contaminates down to .01 micron. The .01 Micron SuperStar Filter is a four stage filtration system that has a .01 micron rating and flow ranges of 50 SCFM, 75 SCFM or 100 SCFM, and can handle pressure ratings of up to 250 PSI. The .01 Micron SuperStar Filter works best when it is installed at or near the point of use. The first and second stage filters remove moisture, liquids, dust, rust, ...
