Using the right air filters, air filter regulators and refrigerated air dryers can improve the performance and life of your compressed air powered equipment. At Air Tools WA, we stock only high-quality compressed air filters and air dryers, specifically designed to protect your air tools, no matter how tough the job required.
Quality Air Tools
We source our refrigerated air dryers from Atlas Copco, one of the highest-quality suppliers in the industry, so you know they are built to last from the best materials available. They draw the water from the air, effectively protecting your system and ensuring you get the most out of your compressed air system.
Our compressed air filters, air regulators and lubricators keep your air supply from becoming contaminated with oil and water, extending the life of your air tools and keeping you going when on the job.

Read through some of our FAQ’s below for more information.
Why do I need a regulator?
Every type of tool requires a different air pressure to operate – for example, health and safety regulations might stipulate that an air blow gun must operate at no more than 30psi, but a nail driver might require no less than 100psi to operate without damaging its driver blade. You need to be able to control the air going to your tools precisely to get the best performance and to avoid damaging them. That is what a good regulator does for you.
When do I need an air filter regulator?
Simply put, to keep your compressors, tanks, and your tools themselves from rusting internally. If you compress unfiltered air, the water vapour in it condenses inside your compressor tank. It is also sent through the rest of your air system and into your tools, making all of their internal parts vulnerable to rust and corrosion. If you don’t want to replace all your tools fairly frequently, you probably need an air filter regulator, such as the fine SMC air filter regulators we stock, to keep your air dry.
Where in the air line should I fit an air filter/regulator?
Ideally, you should put it as far down-line as possible, i.e. just before the line leading to the tool itself. This makes sure that any lubricating oil is dispersed properly, and any contaminants form the rest of the system are filtered out before entering the tools.
Why would I need a refrigerated air dryer?
In humid environments, or when using a high volume of air, a simple filter won’t be enough to keep water vapour out of your air system. A refrigerated air dryer removes virtually all of the water from the air before it gets to your compressor, keeping your entire system dry and corrosion free.
