SATA says the new SATA 500 Filter Series’ increased performance, simplified operation and synchronised maintenance improves the quality of compressed air, boosting workshop efficiency and safety.
According to the company, for just a couple of dollars per job, the 500 Filter Series’ ability to minimise paint shop reworks caused by booth compressed air issues is a wise investment, particularly when cycle-time disruption and the cost of rework is considered. It is also important that “technically clean” compressed air is supplied to the painter’s hoods for protection during paint application.
The stage one cyclone separator and sintered filter has been redesigned, resulting in a constant, uniform air flow which efficiently accelerates any oil or moisture droplets so they are thrown against the side of the filter housing and removed from the air flow. In addition, an automatic drain means one less maintenance item to worry about. The other two stages – fine filter and activated charcoal – have also been refined, with a new sintered activated charcoal filter cartridge able to absorb more harmful substances.
SATA says filter maintenance is now only required every six months, with the 500 Filter Series featuring a built-in display clearly showing when maintenance is due next. The filters feature an easy three-step replacement process, with the fine filter and activated charcoal cartridge fitting perfectly and easily by simply being inserted – there is no need for screw fittings or extra seals.
According to SATA, the 500 Filter Series is second to none when it comes to providing “technically pure” air for painters to breathe, while contributing to spray gun performance. The 500 Filter Series holds a large reserve volume of air when compared to cheap filter units, ensuring consistent airflow and avoiding issues from pressure drop at the gun, even with multiple painters spraying at the same time.
