Chicago Pneumatic FE001 Air Filter Element for RCP-C Piston Compressors
This is a replacement pleated filter element for the Chicago Pneumatic RCP and RCP-C series of piston air compressors. This item will also fit several Quincy, Atlas Copco, Napa, and Belair reciprocating compressors. Element is 99% efficient at 2 microns and uses heavy duty industrial strength paper surrounded by heavy gauge galvanized expanded meta. This filter element can be used for several Ingersoll Rand Type-30 compressors. This is the same as IR part number 32170979 and Campbell Hausfeld part number ST073903AV.
Chicago Pneumatic recommends replacing this filter on an annual basis. Your filter may need to be changed out on a more often basis if your compressor is located in a more dusty environment. By proactively changing your air filter, you ensure that no dirt or debris is sent into the cylinder. This also increases the energy efficiency of your compressor as more air is able to flow through the compressor.
