Centrifugal separators

Maintenance-free whirlwinds

Kaeser KC centrifugal separators remove condensate at the compressor's compressed air discharge point. They're a must for faultless and energy-efficient functioning of downstream dryers and filters. KC centrifugal separators are equipped with the economical and extremely reliable ECO-DRAIN 31 condensate drain – naturally, with test button and alarm contact included. They're also very easy to combine with KAESER FILTERS and can be wall-mounted using optional wall mounts – for highly straightforward installation.

  • Separation rates up to 99 % in the flow rate range of 0.9 to 14.2 m³/min
  • designed for working pressures up to 16 bar
  • with ECO-DRAIN 31 electronic condensate drain
  • with optional wall mounts

Models with flow rates up to 88.5 m³/min, special product variants available in silicon-free design, for working pressure of 45 bar.

Your advantages

  • Comprehensive efficiency:
    Kaeser has optimised the air flow in the KC centrifugal separator using the most advanced flow simulations and measured it as per ISO 12500-4. The results: a swirl insert with an excellent separation rate of up to 99 % – stable over a broad output range and with pressure loss of less than 0.1 bar.
  • Durable and value-retaining
    With a seawater-resistant aluminium enclosure and an additional passivation coating, our centrifugal separators are built to keep on running. The compressed air connections on the enclosure are thus always a perfect fit for our rotary screw compressors.
  • Maintenance-free:
    Kaeser KC centrifugal separators are maintenance-free. Furthermore, the ECO-DRAIN condensate drain is equipped with a service module for highly reliable maintenance.

The perfect partner: the AQUAMAT oil/water separator
AQUAMAT condensate treatment system

Our tip: Take advantage of cost-effective, legally-compliant treatment of condensate before drainage into the regular wastewater system with AQUAMAT oil/water separators.
