The integral filter/regulator (‘piggyback’) is a two station component designed to filter and regulate compressed air when cost and space are of primary concern. As wet, dirty air enters, it immediately flows through the air deflector, causing the air to move in a swirling motion. After condensed water is centrifugally removed, air passes through the filter and into the regulator. The high pressure of the air is systematically reduced via the adjustment spring and valve and exits the housing as clean and dry air that is ready to work at the specified pressure.
