A Solution to the Requirement of Maximum Reliability and Efficiency
In today’s competitive global economy, reliability and efficiency are not only expected, but demanded. Companies are continually searching for higher quality and lower overall cost alternatives that will allow them to successfully compete in a world-wide market. These market forces are the primary drivers in the increased application of oil-free compressed air systems due to the high demand for clean, dry compressed air. This is applicable not only in general industrial applications, but also in traditionally clean industries such as medical, electronics, food and beverage, semi-conductor and packaging. Companies are looking at oil-free compressed air systems as a way to achieve a reduction in operating costs and to eliminate contamination risks and minimize their environmental footprint.
Benefits of Oil-Free Air:
- Maintenance and Energy Savings – Oil-free compressors are designed to last, featuring robust components and simple construction, making them easier to maintain and operate. Oil-free compressors can also be speed regulated so you only consume the energy you need, when you need it, offering excellent energy performance.
- Increased Sustainability – Lubricated air compressors by their very nature consume large quantities of lubricant, oil filters and oil separators which need to be handled and disposed of properly. Oil-less compressors completely eliminate this problem thereby reducing maintenance and inventory costs, as well as minimizing a company’s environmental footprint.
- Contamination Prevention – Utilizing oil-free compressors virtually eliminates the possibility of product contamination from oil carryover in the compressed air. Oil contamination in compressed air is a major reason for product waste, rework, recall and quality control issues affecting production.
- Air Quality Requirements – Requirements vary by industrial application, but the most stringent standards apply to manufacturers whose end products, packaging, or critical instrumentation comes in direct contact with compressed air. Oil-free air can successfully meet and exceed these requirements.
