The invention relates to a two-stage moisture separator for installation at the upper end of a vertical air intake channel (1). The moisture separator comprises a body frame (2) having a square- shaped horizontal cross section, which downwardly smoothly transforms to correspond to the shape of the upper end of the air intake channel (1), so as to be connected thereto in a sealed manner. Each of the sides of the square is provided with a vertically-slatted second separating louver (3), as seen in the direction of air flow, supported to the upper edge of the side. Air channels (4) having an enlarging cross section of flow curve outwardly and downwardly relative to the second separating louvers, and at the ends of the air channels there are, as seen in the direction of air flow, first substantially vertically-slatted separating louvers (5), and suction channels (6) extending downwardly from the first separating louvers. The suction openings (7) of the air channels are substantially downwardly disposed adjacent to the air intake channel (1).
