Haldex says its Consep is a low-maintenance air pre-treatment condenser/separator designed for a variety of OE applications. When factory-installed or retrofitted in a vehicle’s air brake system, the Consep condenses, separates and removes up to 90 percent of the oils, liquids and other contaminants, while treating flow rates of more than 30 SCFM, according to the company; when installed properly, the Consep reduces corrosion and possible failure of air brake system components caused by contamination, and significantly increases the air dryer desiccant life.
The integrated automatic drain valve is designed so that it does not require monthly maintenance; it either purges contaminants with each brake service application, or it can be controlled independently by timer relay. The heated drain valve in the Consep can be installed in various configurations to meet a wide range of vehicle applications, Haldex says.
Mounted between the air compressor and the air dryer, the compact Consep requires little maintenance during its long service life, according to Haldex, which has made servicing the Consep even easier by offering upper and lower service kits. One kit is designed specifically for the upper portion, while the other kit is designed for the lower portion, helping to eliminate shop maintenance time.
