Milton Unveils Modular, Auto-Draining Filter-Regulator-Lubricator Line

EXELAIR FRL Line’s New Color-Coded Packaging “Practically Sells The Product Itself”

CHICAGO, IL  (October 23, 2017) – The new EXELAIR by Milton line of FRLs (Filters Regulators Lubricators) maintains clean, dry air, consistent pressure, and lubricated pneumatic lines to improve performance and extend the life of air-powered tools and components. 

EXELAIR FRL Filters work to screen out moisture and contaminants like rust and pipe scale that can reduce airflow or damage downstream equipment like valves, cylinders and impact wrenches. Regulators keep lines at a constant and safe pressure to avoid overdriving tools and motors. And Lubricators ensure a consistent and reliable oil supply that extends tool life.

 Auto-draining filters maintain the shop air system by automatically emptying moisture throughout the day as needed. The drain tube connection channels drain water safely away to avoid slipping hazards.  EXELAIR’s premium bronze sintered filter elements are washable and provide a longer life in humid conditions than cheaper filter materials.

“Milton’s slogan is ‘Simply Better Air’ and that’s just what our new line of EXELAIR FRLs provide – at a competitive price,” said Greg Carlson, President and CEO of Milton Industries. “Our FRLs are available individually or as pre-configured sets that are designed to work together better while reducing the time and effort of looking up and coordinating the purchase of separate components.”

The EXELAIR FRL line includes side-by-side duo and piggyback FRs, FRL trios and FR+Ls, as well as a variety of modular brackets and accessories to customize the system.  Available sizes range from 1/8” NPT miniature units up to 1” NPT high flow. Each configuration is designed to keep the vital shop air system running at peak efficiency by dramatically reducing the impact of contaminants in lines and tools.  

As an added feature, new color-coded EXELAIR packaging “practically sells the product itself,” making self-service purchases easier by clearly explaining the function and benefits of each FRL, simplifying the decision-making process and reducing the retail staff’s sales and service time. 

EXELAIR by Milton FRLs are available at most automotive/heavy-duty dealers, jobbers, farm & agricultural retailers, hardware stores, and industrial distributors. EXELAIR FRLs are also available online via the ecommerce divisions of Milton customers and Internet resellers.
