Title: FILTER PRECLEANER
Abstract:
A filter precleaner for precleaning an unfiltered gaseous mixture. A coalescing filter includes a filter media for filtering a gas, a nozzle assembly for precleaning an unfiltered gaseous mixture, and a lower endplate. The nozzle assembly includes a first nozzle plate positioned upstream of the filter media. The lower endplate is positioned at a lower end of the filter media beneath the first nozzle plate. The lower endplate allows liquid to drain through the lower endplate. The unfiltered gaseous mixture impacts the lower endplate such that liquid from the unfiltered gaseous mixture flows through the lower endplate and gas from the unfiltered gaseous mixture flows through the filter media.
