Oil Free and Oil Less Compressors

Broadest Range of Oil-Free and Oil Less Compressed Air Technology

Oil free means no oil is present in the compression chamber. Oil less means no oil is present anywhere in the compressor package eliminating the risk of product contamination due to oil carryover.

Today, we remain at the forefront of oil-free compressor technology with breakthrough innovations such as Ultima and Quantima.

Depending on the application, one specific compressed air technology might provide advantages over another technology. Gardner Denver gives you the flexibility of several different oil-free and oil-less technologies to match your requirements.

Gardner Denver's oil-free compressors are helping industries across the globe to meet and exceed quality and production objectives in food and beverage, pharmaceutical, electronic, healthcare and power generation applications to name but a few.

Some processes need clean, dry, oil-free air and cannot risk contamination. With an oilfree compressor you get peace of mind, both in your system and for your business.



A true oil-free compressor does not have oil in the compression chamber. This minimizes downstream filtration requirements and pressure drops, which directly translates into energy savings and total cost of ownership reductions.

ULTIMATE Oil-Free Compressor

Ultima is a ground-breaking oil-free compressor. The unique design of this all new compressor range from Gardner Denver utilizes a low pressure and high pressure dry screw airend—each airend is individually driven by a variable speed, permanent magnet synchronous motor, offering exceptional levels of efficiency versus traditional oil-free technology.

Considering that the highest cost in the lifecycle of a compressor is the energy to run it, the unique design of Ultima has allowed us to combine the ultimate performance with the ultimate efficiency, and still deliver a footprint 37% smaller than a conventional two stage oil-free compressor.

To ensure optimum performance the Ultima comes standard with iConn remote data analytics.
