F16AC Air Compressor Condensate Oil Removal System
A compressed air system produces condensation, which is the moisture that drops out of a compressed air flow as it cools. This condensation will contain oil if the compressor uses lubrication in its compression chamber: these include oil-flooded rotary screw compressors and reciprocating compressors with lubricated cylinders. The F16AC Muscle Compressor Coalescer is the air compressor condensate management system needed to separate this oil from the condensate water – and the media never needs replacing (economical and green)!
No consumable components
Automatic air release vent
Automatic de-oiled water drain port
Spin-welded fittings to prevent leaks
Durable, translucent barrel
Coalescing media increases surface area for oils to readily collect and separate
The F16AC Muscle Air Compressor Coalescer is robust and simple, yet designed for the unexpected and can become a vital part of your condensate maintenance program. It is an alternative to expensive separation systems and is suitable for almost any size compressor system. In most cases, this system will effectively separate your oily compressor condensate to comply with other environmental safety standards, such as ISO14001.
Lower Air Compressor Condensate Waste Costs up
to 98% Versus Hauling It Off Site
Dirty air compressor condensate is mostly water. Expect a 50:1 ratio, 50 parts water to 1 part oil (or just 1 gallon of oil in a 55 gallon drum of condensate).
Air systems can produce an enormous amount of condensate each day. A 100 HP compressor operating in a climate of 70°F with 80% humidity generates 2 gallons of condensate each hour.
Disposal companies charge between $150 to $250 to dispose of a 55 gallon drum of oily air compressor condensate.
The savings are considerable if you separate your condensate on site, paying only to dispose of the oil:
If you use the numbers above, a 100 HP compressor, operating 24 hours, will produce a minimum of 48 gallons of condensate a day and only 0.96 gallons of this is oil. It will take you 57 days to accumulate (1) 55 gallon drum of oil with a minimum disposal cost of $150.
In that same 57 days, without separation, you will accumulate almost (50) 55 gallon drums of condensate with a minimum disposal cost of $7,500. The Muscle saves you over $7,000 in disposal cost during 2 months of operating!
The Muscle Condensate Management System will minimize your air compressor condensate waste stream and treat it effectively to comply with EPA and local municipality regulations.

Webber Gage/Division of LS Starrett Co., Cleveland, OH
Dave, the Maintenance Manager at Webber Gage, was concerned about their age old method of dispensing their air compressor condensate straight to the sewer. He heard of the Muscle Condensate Management System through a friend in the industry, and decided to try it.
The Muscle separated the oil well, treating the wastewater to a level well below what his municipality required. Dave now rests a little easier, and has a more convenient and economical method to separate his air compressor condensate.
Compax, Inc., Aneheim, CA
Blaise is the Maintenance Manager at Compax and was put to the charge of equipping his air compressors with a condensate management system to remove its oil content. He had just returned from Put-in-Bay, OH and had a blast riding the golf cart around the island, so was happy to handle it.
The Muscle Condensate Management System has been efficiently separating his air compressor condensate ever since. Blaise says it was priced right, it works right, and he likes the fact that he does not have to mess around with replacement filters-it takes care of itself! with another 1M in savings over the next year as they equip all of their locations with the Muscle.
Testimonial for the Muscle Condensate Management System
“Wishes to Remain Anonymous” Company, All Across America
Paul, a twenty-year environmental engineer veteran, works for a national auto service center.
He had a condensate management system specified to separate oil from his air compressor condensate, but given this system was expensive and required replacement filters, he decided to research his options once more as this project again crossed his desk.
In short order, he found a much less expensive option- the Muscle Condensate Management System (CMS).
The Muscle installed and operated easily, says Paul, and was approved during their safety audit in June 2010.
Fifteen minutes of his time saved Paul’s company 72K to date, with another 1M in savings over the next year as they equip all of their locations with the Muscle!
