A sterile environment is essential in the pharmaceutical industry. So when it comes to compressed air, only oil-free will do.

Any contaminates in compressed air, such as oil, can cause process disruptions, production shutdowns, and expensive product recalls - not to mention the cost to company reputation. So manufacturers can take no chances, demanding the highest quality of air at all times… without question.

No matter what you manufacture, be it pies or pizzas, bottled water or beer, you can rest assured that our oil-free compressor range will ensure a reliable supply of high quality air and your peace of mind.

Typical uses of compressed air in the pharmaceutical industry include:

  • Process air — air used in direct contact with products for cleaning, aeration and product moving
  • Food filling machines
  • Fluid pumps — to move liquid products in the production and filling process
  • Nitrogen generation — compressed air is filtered to produce nitrogen, used in the packaging process
  • Air knives — for the cutting and peeling of products such as fruit and vegetables
  • Packaging — to generate the vacuum used in the packaging process
