FAQ’s

How do I know I’ve outgrown my compressor?

A clear sign that you have outgrown your air compressor is when your compressor begins to show signs of burnout. It is important to replace your compressor at this point to avoid costly downtime. Check out this article on how we reduced a beverage packagers downtime.

Am I SQF or FDA safety compliant?

It is important to keep your equipment leak free and your air clean and dry to avoid food and beverage contamination. John Henry Foster offers food safe products ranging from our air compressors to USDA approved Stainless Steel Cylinders.

Why does my canning and bottling process take so long?

Your compressor may not be working at a high enough CFM. You may need to upgrade your air compressor to a Rotary Screw Air Compressor. As a guideline, it is best to keep your pressure above 140.
