  • Patent number: 10717033
    Abstract: A filter element (100) that is to be mounted in a housing (102) has at least one substantially hollow cylindrical pleated filter (10, 20) designed to separate liquid from aerosol, and two cover elements (30, 40) designed to cover axial end regions (12, 14, 22, 24) of the pleated filter (10, 20). The axial end portions (12, 14, 22, 24) of the at least one pleated filter (10, 20) are pressed against the cover element (30, 40) by an axial compressing force. The at least one pleated filter (10, 20) is secured in the axial direction, and one respective sealing zone (16, 18, 26, 28) is formed between each pleated filter (10, 20) and each cover element (30, 40).

  • Patent number: 10391436
    Abstract: A cup-shaped housing assembly for a device for separating liquid from air has a cup-shaped housing body having an interior. At least one annular filter element for separating liquid from air is arranged in the housing body. A housing cover closes off an end face of the housing body. The housing cover has an inner side that is facing the interior and an outer side that is facing away from the interior. The housing cover has at least one raw air inlet through which raw air is supplied to the interior. The housing cover has at least one clean air opening though which filtered clean air is discharged from the interior.

  • Patent number: 10232294
    Abstract: A separation element for a pressure accumulator system for separating liquid from a media stream is provided with a hollow cylindrical filter body. The filter body has a support body and a coalescing stage filter medium radially outwardly of the support body. The filter body is flowed through radially by the media stream and separates a dirty side from a clean side of the separation element. First and second end disks are disposed on opposite sides of the filter body. A receiving recess is arranged centrally on the first end disk and is open toward the filter body interior. The receiving recess supports the separation element on a central tube of the pressure accumulator system. The second end disk has an outlet opening. Liquid that has been separated by the filter body from the media stream drains via the outlet opening of the second end disk from the separation element.

  • Patent number: 10035092
    Abstract: Described is a housing (18) for a separating device (12) for separating fluid from a gas, a housing cover (28) and a connecting part (16) of a device (12) and a device (12) for separating a fluid. The housing (18) has at least one first gas passage (82), which is centrally disposed relative to an axis (30) on a connection device (14). The housing (18) has at least one second gas passage (52), which is disposed radially outside the at least one first gas passage (82) with respect to the axis (30). The housing (18) has at least one fluid outlet (36, 48, 64) for fluid separated from the gas, which is disposed radially between the at least one first gas passage (82) and the at least one second gas passage (52) with respect to the axis (30).
