Claremont, CA – Vortox Air Technology, Inc., an American manufacturer offering innovative solutions to air filtration needs for a variety of industries, has released a full line of Oil Bath Air Cleaners, including G, GA, S, and SA Series.

G and GA Series
Vortox’s highly efficient G and GA Series Oil Bath Air Cleaners are available with either clamps or rods and are intended for stationary diesel machinery such as excavating equipment, long-run gasoline or diesel units, and large dirt-moving equipment that are exposed to heavy dust and oil. The G series is designed for service on engines and compressors with a preexisting clamped hose or flexible tubing connection. Equipped with a horizontal tubular outlet and provisions for an extended inlet cap, the G style is suitable for vertical mounting with the aid of a saddle bracket. Additionally, the customer receives a choice of rods or clamps to secure the oil cup. Both are cadmium plated to prevent rusting.

The G and GA styles Oil Bath Air Cleaner are engineered for heavy use of large quantities. They are composed of four elements: the Body Assembly, Prefilter, Disc, and Cup. The Body Assembly houses the Vortox Air Technology filter element, which is made of finely coiled interlocking steel wire to sustain the life of the product. The Continuous circulation of oil throughout the cleaner on a controlled basis from low- to high- air velocity creates a large dust-holding capacity. The Prefilter catches chaff and lint before they reach the main filter and deflects the heavier dirt and oil into the oil Cup. The Prefilter is also easily removable for quick servicing. The Disc controls the proper measuring and dispersion of oil from the Cup. Finally, the Cup serves as an oil and dirt reservoir.

The GA Series, similar to the G Series in terms of body style, provides a large dust-holding capacity and minimizes intake noise. The GA style is designed for service on engines and compressors in which a direct connection can be made with companion flanges. GA cleaners are suitable for direct vertical mounting. Due to its flanged connection, this cleaner does not require the support of mounting bands or brackets.

S and SA Series
Vortox’s S Series Oil Bath Air Cleaner features a horizontal tubular outlet for use with a hose. It is designed to be mounted vertically with the assistance of a saddle bracket. Both the S and SA Series are smaller and more lightweight than the G or GA, requiring less space for mounting. S and SA styles are composed of three elements: the Body Assembly, Vortex Chamber, and Cup. The air is first centrifugated by the Vortex Chamber to separate large particles of dust. Air then flows into the filter element located in the Body Assembly, along with oil from the oil reservoir. As dust is suspended in the air, clean air passes through the filter, and the dirty oil drains back to the Cup. Dirt separates from oil in the Cup.

The SA series is similar to the S style in terms of look and design. In addition to being compact and lightweight, the SA features a flanged outlet that allows for direct mounting without any band or saddle brackets.
