The function of an oil filter is to remove all the impurities from the oil, without separating the special additives. If dust or dirt is present in your compressor oil it will end up between rotors and the compressor element housing. This will damage your rotors, the compressor element and thus your compressor's performance.
Compressor oil is used to lubricate the compressor element, and dust will damage the rollers of the bearings. If the bearings are damaged, it can lead to increased rotor contact, reducing the lifespan of your compressor element. Oil filters can help you prevent this from happening.
