Cost Saving Treatment
The KAESER AQUAMAT system enables the compressor user to carry out in-house condensate treatment and thereby greatly reduce the overall cost of hazardous waste treatment and disposal. Condensate treatment with the KAESER AQUAMAT system saves up to 90 % of the disposal costs that would be required for a specialist company to dispose of the condensate.
Why Treat Condensate?
Condensate is an unavoidable result of air compression. It is a chemically aggressive fluid that mainly consists of water, but also contains oil and dirt particles. This combination of substances can consequently cause serious environmental harm if released in its raw state. Water resource legislation stipulates that contaminated water must be treated to achieve prescribed safety levels regarding purity. AQUAMAT condensate treatment systems do precisely that: They ensure that contaminant levels are kept well within regulation limits (e.g. max. 10 or 20 mg/litre for hydrocarbons).
High performance filter material
All pre- and main-filter cartridges feature high performance filter material (not activated charcoal). Furthermore, the upstream separation reservoir with gravitational pre separation enables maintenance intervals to be significantly extended and enhances reliability (not applicable to CF3 model).
Clearly visible alarm indicator
The level sensor clearly indicates the degree of filter contamination. The filter should be changed as soon as this indicator becomes obvious. The user can check operation of the AQUAMAT by referring to the cloudiness test containers and consequently schedule maintenance as necessary (Recommendation: Check operation 1 x per week).
Clean filter change
Removal of the main filter cartridge is made simple via the convenient handle. The filter can then be easily fixed to the AQUAMAT casing to drain. Filter changes are therefore quick and clean. Pre-soaking of the new filter is not necessary.
