Make sure it's a genuine EK Filter Drier

The next time you're installing an EK Filter Drier, make sure you're installing a geniune EK Filter Drier from Emerson Climate Technologies Flow Controls. That's because more and more imitation EK Filter Driers are finding their way into our marketplace - imitations that cannot compete with the real thing for performance and reliability.

Look for the laser hologram label on our product as the proof of authenticity. The laser hologram label is specially designed with unique graphic patterns and serial numbers.

Avoid potential problems

Sure the imitations may look authentic, but they cannot deliver the long-lasting protection from moisture and contaminants you and your customers expect. In fact, the long list of potential side effects from inferior imitation products includes:-

  • Shortened compressor life
    • Wear damage from contaminant debris
    • Damage from acid formation
    • Damage from corrosion (water)
    • Copper plating due to moisture content
  • Stuck expansion valves
    • Freeze up due to presence of water
    • Valve stuck open or closed due to contaminant debris and sludge formation
  • Shortened system component life
    • Corrosion due to acid/ water
  • Blocked coils
    • Contaminant debris, sludge
  • System leaks
    • Due to corrosion/ water

Look for the Emerson Climate Technologies brand.

How to tell them apart?
How to identify an imitation filter drier?

Looking at the picture below. Can you see which is a real EK filter drier, and which is not?

This is how you tell them apart. Look at the end profile of the filter driers. Imitations have a steeper angle [as indicated].

Imitations have a weaker welding joints. They are liable to leak. Cannot withstand to a maximum working pressure of 680psig.

Imitations have an emboss print on the labels --- it feels rough.
