Airbrush Filter Regulator
Also known as Air Filter Regulator and Moisture Trap
An airbrush filter regultaor is a vital tool for those using compressed air. When air is place through a mechanical process, such as compression, heat and water vapour is produced. This water vapour may cause paints to not atomise correctly. If you are using solvent based paints then water vapour may cause very small pin holes in the paint finish.
This unit is used to regulate and control the pressure of air for air tools / airbrushes whilst also removing air borne contaminants and water vapour.
Operating any air tool without one of these in the airline usually voids a warranty and is an absolute must for prolonged life of your air tools.
The airbrush filter regulator has a 1/4BSP female threaded inlet which simply screws on to the 1/4BSP male air outlet of a compressor.
It also has two further outlets:
1 x 1/8BSP Female - the included air gauge simply screws into this threaded outlet.
1 x 1/4BSP Female - the included reducer (1/4BSP male to 1/8BSP male) screws into the threaded outlet. Your 1/8BSP female air hose connects to this outlet.
BSP stands for British Standard Pipe and denotes the type and pitch of the thread. BSP is the most common thread used with air compressors, airbrushes and other air tools.
1/4BSP is about 11.75mm diameter.
1/8BSP is about 9.35 mm diameter.
If you require a 1/4BSP Male to 1/4BSP Male adaptor (for a 1/4BSP Air Hose) then please purchase via the link below:
The max. air flow is the 650L/Min.
The maximum pressure for this air filter is the 150PSI(10Bar).
The gauge shows the working pressure.
** The pressure gauge must be screwed in using a spanner on the the head of the threaded insert. Fitting by hand will result in air leaking from the gauge and will invalidate the warranty**
Adjust the pressure by pulling the top button up: turn clockwise to increase pressure, turn counter-clockwise to decrease pressure.
Push the bottom needle to release captured water.
Comes complete with a pressure gauge, often found on small compressors, which reads between 0-150PSI / 10Bar
