&HEADLINE>Air filter monitor determines element replacement&/HEADLINE>

Filter monitor audits compressed air filters for energy savings by determining the optimal time for element replacement. Through microprocessor monitoring, particulate loading of the filter element is continuously audited based on instantaneous and average daily pressure drop measurements. A 60-day advance notice is given prior to the optimal change-out day. Hankison Intl.; www.hankisonintl.com

&HEADLINE>Compressed air drain only expels condensate&/HEADLINE>

Eco-Drain removes water from compressed air filters with a capacitance sensor. The sensor has no moving parts and allows the drain to open only when needed, expelling condensate but not valuable compressed air. The robust aluminum housing and superior construction ensure many years of reliable service in harsh environments. Kaeser Compressors; www.kaeser.com
