Assembly and Commissioning
1. Screw the oil separator onto the system.
2. Screw the adsorber into the upper thread. For this purpose, oil the thread lightly beforehand
1. Unscrew the adsorber.
2. Unscrew the oil separator from the system.
3. Unscrew oil separator and check O-ring for damage. Replace with new one if necessary.
4. Check knitted wire mesh inside for contamination. If necessary, clean with compressed air.
5. Mount the adsorber and oil separator.
Risk and Hazard Analysis
1. Humid Air flows into the Plant
Moist air can flow into the system at the porous points. The seals must be checked according to the maintenance schedule.
2. Oil Separator is damaged
When selecting the oil separator, the ambient and operating conditions should be taken into account. An aggressive environment or liquid in the container can damage the oil separator.
The ambient and operating temperatures should not exceed or fall below the specified range, otherwise the oil separator may be damaged.
Incorrect or improper handling can damage the oil separator. The recommended installation must be observed.
3. Over- or Underpressure builds up in the System
Air flow rate too high
Due to a high air flow rate generated by the system, an over- or underpressure can build up due to the knitted wire mesh.
Contaminated knitted wire Mesh and impeller
The knitted wire mesh and impeller may be clogged or glued by dirt particles.
4. Thread of the Adsorber and Accessories is damaged
When mounting the adsorber as well as the valve part on the system, the threads must be slightly wetted with oil. Failure to lubricate the threads can lead to rubbing of the individual threads and is no reason for complaint.
1. Check Seals for Wear
|Check||The O-ring mounted on the oil separator must be checked for perfect condition. For this purpose, the O-ring should be checked for brittleness.|
|Measures||If damage is present, the O-ring should be replaced.|
2. Check knitted wire Mesh for Impurities
|Check||The knitted wire mesh and the impeller, inside the oil separator, must be checked for contamination and sticking.|
|Measures||For faultless operation, the oil separator must be free of dirt. If the knitted wire mesh is contaminated, an attempt can be made to clean it using compressed air. If this is not possible, the oil separator must be replaced by a new one.|
3. Visual Inspection of the Oil Separator
|Check||The oil separator must be checked visually for damage. Damage can occur due to various environmental or operating conditions or improper handling.|
|Measures||If the oil separator shows signs of damage, it should be replaced to ensure full functionality.|
4. Replacing the Wearing Parts
|Check||The wearing parts, especially the knitted wire mesh, the impeller and the O-ring, must be checked with regard to their condition.|
|Cycle||Every two years|
|Measures||Regardless of the result of the test, it is recommended to replace the wearing parts to ensure smooth operation.|
