The compressed air introduced from the inlet is given circling movements by the deflector. The resulting cyclone effects forcibly push comparatively large free droplets and foreign particles toward the inner walls of the bowl, causing them to move down the wall surfaces and accumulate in the bowl’s bottom. The compressed air from which most foreign particles have been removed passes through the centrallyplaced filter element made of synthetic resin or sintered metal and having numerous micropores. At the filter element, even finer dust particles are removed and the compressed air flows out to the outlet side. On the other hand, the separated moisture, dust and other foreign particles are discharged out of the air filter by a manually-operated drain valve, such as a cock valve or a push valve, or an automatic drain valve mounted in the bowl’s bottom. In most applications, filter elements with a 5 µm filtration rating are used.
