While our air bearings products are engineered to the highest standards possible, an air bearing is only as good as the air you provide it. To that end, New Way® is pleased to be your supplier for all of the regulators, gauges, and filters you need in order to supply your air bearings with an air supply conducive to optimal performance.
Per our Care and Air guidelines, our air bearings should be supplied with Clean Dry Air (CDA) at 60 psi of pressure. The quality of the air the bearing runs off of greatly affects the lifespan of the bearing. For this reason, we highly recommend investing in your filtration system just as you’ve chosen to invest in our noncontact products.
Our officially recommended specifications state that in lieu of already purified shop air, your air supply should be filtered and regulated through a four-step process which includes:
In addition to providing all the individual components you may need (as well as replacement filters and desiccant), New Way also offers an all in one Air Filter and Dryer Kit (99-0284), providing you with a plug-and-play option that encompasses all four steps needed to properly regulate and filter your bearing’s air supply.
Everything you need in order to properly filter and regulate your air supply, as well as replacement filters and desiccants, are all available directly through New Way.
These are the following gauges, regulators, and filters applications:
Not at all air bearings have the same needs, and our regulators offer you the flexibility to tune your air supply to match your bearing or work environment’s needs.
Not at all work environments offer air with a sufficiently low-vapor point; our desiccant filters offset this issue.
The best way to care for your air bearings in the long term is through preventative maintenance, and that starts with ensuring a clean, dry air supply.
