NL Series

NL Series air maintenance units provide a premium-quality solution for centralised or decentralised compressed air preparation, with solid durable metal housings.

With the NL line, it’s easy to achieve completely customised compressed air preparation, where every component in the series is modular and can be simply combined to achieve the desired function to precisely match to the application requirements.

The system includes 1/8 to 1” connections and comes with filterelement sizes as small as 0.01 µm. It can handle flow rates up to 15 000 l/min, and with nominal air pressure up to 16 bar, provides a high-quality high pressure air regulator.

Functional reliability and a long service life

The NL Series is engineered to ensure reliable functioning of pneumatic controls over a long service life.

These precise pneumatic air regulator units accurately control the required air pressure, and the differential pressure indicator for the microfilter that lets you know when it is time to replace the filter delivers maximum air distribution system efficiency.

Special micro oil-mist lubricators achieve the finest distribution and a uniform concentration of oil in the air flow to ensure you meet all environmental requirements.
