Beyond adhering to industry standards there are further steps site owners operating in production sensitive environments can take to guarantee clean and reliable compressed air supply with environmental benefits.

In the past, high-quality air and energy savings have been achieved by using oil-lubricated compressors that rely on filtration to protect products and equipment from the effects of contamination. However, for a growing number of operators seeking absolute assurance that there is no risk of contamination, oil-free solutions are the preferred option.

Deciding on an ­oil-free solution is the most eco-conscious choice and can help contribute towards site’s green credentials.
