In today's market, there are many varieties of compressor filters available. Some simply collect dust, some soak up oil in the lines, and some even help to collect water. When it comes to industrial applications, all of these are necessities. Therefore, Ingersoll Rand stepped up their production and manufacturing by creating their new Element Replacement Indicator (ERI).
ERI's are an illuminating approach to filter maintenance that yields real, measurable benefits for you, for your company and for our environment. The new filter provides the ideal platform for an easier, more reliable and fully predictable maintenance schedule.
By using a unique time-based approach, the ERI provides an easily visible indication to replace the filter element at the optimal time (bi-annually) to avoid high pressure drop and minimize energy consumption. In addition, the unique fit between the element and the filter body allows for a no-touch, no-hassle change out process that is quick and clean for you and your colleagues.
When the filter element is initially installed, the ERI flashes briefly, and then turns off. After six months, it automatically flashes to indicate that it’s time for replacement. 72 hours later, the indicator stays illuminated continuously, alerting everyone within view that replacement is necessary! It’s that simple, that reliable.
No longer do customers have to second guess and keep logs for when the filters need replacing. When you see a red light flashing - change it! This ultimately saves the company time and money!
