A filter regulator aims to reduce moisture and obstructive particles from the airflow inside a valve. The filters either have a manual or a semi-automatic drain, as well as a pressure gauge. If you are working in a corrosive environment, a stainless steel filter regulator is recommended, as this type of regulator is designed to withstand harsh environments where toxic materials may be present.
How the filter helps
When air leaves a compressor it is often dirty and wet. The filter cleans the air which travels from the compressor to trap solid particles such as dust and dirt and separate liquids such as oil and water from the compressed air.
