There are many kinds of particulate in the atmosphere. They are invisible, except when they collect and form, for example, puffs of smoke or clouds of dust. Over the clean mid-Pacific Ocean there are approximately 26 million particles per cubic foot; 173 million in normal air; dirty industrial air, nearly 9 billion. These particle consist of hydrocarbons from unburned fuel of automotive and jet engines, power plants, oil burning installations, petrochemical refineries, steel mills, foundries and related industries. Living and dead plants and microorganisms also add pollutants to the air.
Atmospheric particulate not removed by inlet filters, compressor wear particles, lubricant aerosols and odors must be removed from the compressor airstream through filtration. There are pre-filters, lubricant-removal filters and odor-removal filters. Their type, number and placement depend on the application and the degree of contaminant removal required.
Air dryers take out water. You need filters to remove lubricant aerosols, atmospheric pollution, odors and other submicron contaminants. A 1.0 micron particle is invisible without magnification.
