Vanair's Integrated Separator Tank features integrated manifolds containing a minimum pressure valve, thermo-valve, thermistors, transducers, pressure regulators, oil filter, ultrasonic oil level sensors, and optional cold-weather heater. It also features SAE O-Ring and JIC connections, eliminating leak points associated with conventional galvanized pipe fitting designs.
The Integrated Separator Tank is shipped fully assembled and ready for final mounting, which reduces installation time by approximately two hours. The result of these innovations is an impressive 60% plus reduction in leak points compared to competitive tank designs.
A cold-weather heater is an additional option, which preheats the compressor oil using engine coolant while driving to the job site. The new tank will also feature a redesigned coalescing element with 50 percent greater surface media, doubling the design life up to 6000-hours, according the company.
