As air is compressed, the volume of contaminants in the incoming air stream is concentrated as the same rate as the compression ratio. As an example, if compression ratio is 8:1, the moisture, contaminants and aerosols are compressed at the same rate. To protect your equipment from the contamination, water, and aerosols (hydrocarbons such as oil) have to be filtered from the compressed air.

The five schematics shown on PDF below show the major compressed
air system components, where filters can be positioned, and the resulting compressed air
quality specifications met.
