Fluid Metrics’compressor Compressor Oil Purifiers with Ion Exchange and Ultra-fine Filtration technologies continuously remove the harmful acids and solids that naturally accumulate in compressor oils, and are the root cause of most routine compressor maintenance and repairs. By proactively removing contaminants known to accelerate oil degradation, additive depletion, corrosion, wear and fouling, the COP dramatically increases the useful life of your compressors’ oil, air-oil separators, bearings, valves and other costly internals. The COP slashes compressor maintenance costs by minimizing your oil & parts consumption, labor and downtime, and environmental impact while delivering the ultimate in protection and reliability.

RESULTS YOU CAN MEASURE
Proactive, Condition‐based maintenance using Fluid Metrics’ COP delivers measurable results you can easily see. Independent oil analysis allows users to easily monitor and confirm that their oil’s critical properties are being properly maintained and their oil will achieve maximum service life.
At the heart of the COP is its patented Dual Core cartridge with Ion Exchange acid adsorbing media. The specially prepared ion exchange resin attracts, neutralizes, and removes the harmful acids that accelerate oil degradation, additive depletion, varnish, and corrosion, and reduce the useful life of expensive synthetic compressor fluids, and other vital components.
The Ion Exchange Technology used in the COP has been extensively tested and endorsed by the world’s leading supplier of synthetic compressor fluids, and is proven to dramatically extend fluid service life. Routine oil analysis confirms that controlling acids with ion exchange technology easily produces a 3-5 times increase in compressor fluid service life. And, when used in combination with Fluid Metrics’ Additive Supplement, can increase fluid life to more than 56,000 hours, and counting! You truly may never need to change your compressors’ oil again.
Most OEM oil filters only remove solids down to 10 microns “nominal” or around 25 microns absolute (β≥200). These coarse, full-flow, oil filters are not designed to remove the most destructive “clearance size” solids (< 5 microns) that accelerate wear and fouling. Allowed to accumulate, ultra-fine solids increase operation and maintenance costs by reducing the useful life of the compressor’s oil, bearings, separators and seals, while increasing separator pressure drop and energy consumption. The COP dramatically improves upon OEM oil filter performance by using a 3 micron absolute synthetic media, with very high surface area, and strategically placed in a low-flow bypass loop to the compressors main oil circuit. These unique design features enable the COP to maintain fluid cleanliness (ISO Particle Counts) of in-service compressor fluids at levels cleaner than new fluid straight from the container.
