At MGA Controls, we supply a wide range of air preparation equipment from brands such as IMI Norgren, Aventics and Bifold. Air preparation units are extremely important to the smooth running of a process. They provide clean air to compressed air systems, promoting the reliable operation and increased efficiency of an application. In this article, we answer your air preparation commonly asked questions.
Air preparation equipment is designed to provide a quality air supply to compressed air systems that will promote reliable operation and increased efficiency. This entails the removal of particles or contamination from the air stream, such as water, and the control of pressure to minimise energy wastage. MGA Controls supply an array of air prep accessories that assist the air preparation equipment..
Are you looking for a solution for preparing compressed air to control a pneumatic system? At MGA Controls, we have combined FRL boxsets that are the most economical way to control air within a pneumatic compression system. In this blog, we outline the benefits and uses of a FRL unit.
FRL Unit Working principle
A Combination FRL Boxset does everything that is necessary when preparing compressed air..
Unsure about what an air pressure regulators is? Read our latest blog where MGA Controls discuss the design and function of an air pressure regulator that make it the perfect tool for air control, reducing costs and maximising safety.
What is an air pressure regulator?
Air pressure regulators are generally used for reducing pressure levels, which ultimately lowers costs and provides an element of..
Looking for a tool that will offer a complete air treatment solution? In our latest blog, we outline the definition of an FRL boxset, explaining the three main functions of an FRl unit and how an FRL unit works.
What is an FRL Boxset?
An FRL combined box set is made up of a filter/regulator, a lubricator and the associated fittings and wall mounting brackets. The FRL boxset offers a complete air treatment..
A filter regulator lubricator, also knowns as an FRL box set, is a pre-assembled air preparation kit that includes a range of components, designed to offer a complete air treatment solution. The box set commonly includes a filter/regulator and a lubricator, with the associated fittings and wall mounting brackets. Other accessories can also be added to a combined FRL box set, including pressure switches..
A lubricator for a pneumatic system provides lubrication to internal working parts of pneumatic tools and components, including actuating cylinders, valves and motors. The device injects a stream of oil into the airline, ensuring they perform at the optimum level at all times. Here, MGA Controls provides more information about pneumatic lubricator functions.
What is the purpose of a lubrication..
A pneumatic filter is a critical system component that can prevent premature failure of your pneumatic machinery. The filter is a device designed to remove harmful water or contaminants from a compressed air stream. Here at MGA Controls, we have compiled a list of need to know information about pneumatic filters.
Types of pneumatic filters
In order to make effective air filtration possible, it is important..
A pressure regulator is a type of valve that takes the upstream pressure of a compressed air system, and regulates it down to a pre-determined level so that it is suitable for use with other components of the system. They are used to allow high pressure air supplies to be reduced to a safe and usable pressure for different applications. Here, MGA Controls gives you all the need to know information..
FRLs normally comprise three main elements; a Filter, Regulator and Lubricator. But there’s one additional extra in Norgren’s Excelon Pro patented NFRL, which gives it an operational edge over standard FRLs – Norgren’s unsurpassable expertise.
The ‘N’ in NRFL stands for ‘Norgren’, and that’s the extra component that makes all the difference. It guarantees the highest levels..
