What Are Some Applications for an Oil-Free Compressor?
Unlike oil-flooded compressors, oil-free compressors are generally used in places like pharmaceutical companies where it is absolutely necessary for there to be zero hydrocarbons in the air of their production facility and their products. This is also the case for food and beverage companies, such as bottling and food packaging facilities, where the air comes in direct contact with the product.
We believe that in the near future it will likely be mandatory for these type of companies to have completely oil-free air systems in their facilities. This is one reason we believe there has been such a big oil-free shift, as far as rotary screw air compressors. Gardner Denver is on the front-end of this movement, and C&B Equipment is happy to be a trusted resource when transitioning or looking into an oil-free compressor.
