Industries and Applications

Whatever the industry and whatever the application, there's a growing demand for higher-quality, oil-free compressed air that meets stringent air quality standards.

Whether you produce food and beverages, process chemicals, supply pharmaceuticals, make electronics or sensitive components, manufacture goods, or are involved in the automotive industry we have the solutions to meet your needs.


Food and beverage manufacturers must adhere to the highest quality standards when it comes to protecting the integrity of their products and processes - and their brand!

There's a lot riding on the quality of air used in the industry - even the slightest traces of oil can result in altered or polluted product batches and the risk of health hazards for consumers.

To ensure best practice, the International Standards Organization (ISO) established a new class of air quality for food and beverage manufacturers. Known as Class 0, it is the most stringent air quality class, limiting oil contamination in liquids, aerosols and vapors.

Typical uses of compressed air in the food and beverage industry include:

  • Product handling - to move products at high speeds along the production process

  • 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

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.


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.

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

  • Control valves & cylinders - to control equipment used in the manufacturing process

  • Material handling - Fluid pumping systems are operated by compressed air in volatile environments without the risk of explosion

  • Nitrogen generation - air is filtered via a membrane to produce nitrogen

  • Air curtains - air is used as a curtain to create a safe and clean area

  • Product drying - air is mixed with products to accelerate the drying process.

In addition to the requirement for high quality oil-free air, manufacturers need to reduce their cost of operations and increase efficiency in order to improve their bottom line.

At CompAir, we have a complete range of compressors designed to provide totally oil-free air to the highest quality standards, with class-leading efficiency to help you achieve these goals.


The demands placed on equipment in the chemical industry are particularly high. Toxic, corrosive and unstable gases are frequently a part of the production process.

Maintaining product purity is a must and, there are stringent quality controls in place to ensure manufacturers provide the highest quality chemicals to their customers.

In many applications, compressed air comes into contact with the process it serves, so the quality of that air is critical.

Contaminants, such as oil, in the compressed air supply can result in costly product spoilage and loss of valuable production - which may result in you being unable to supply to your customers on time!

Typical uses of compressed air in the chemical industry include:

  • Process air - used in direct contact with product for such usages as cleaning, aeration and product moving

  • Control valves & cylinders - equipment used in the manufacturing process is controlled by compressed air

  • Material handling - air operated fluid pumping systems are used in volatile environments without the risk of explosion

  • Nitrogen generation - air is filtered via a membrane to produce nitrogen used in a variety of chemical applications

  • Air curtains - to create a safe and clean area

  • Product drying - air is mixed with product to accelerate drying processes

To meet the exacting standards of the industry, we have developed an innovative range of oil-free machines to ensure an efficient and reliable supply of high quality air.


To produce a high-quality vehicle, you need high-quality equipment...

Whether it is spraying cars with paint or assembling them with air tools, the automotive industry relies on compressors to provide a high-quality finish.

Typical uses of compressed air in the automotive industry include:

  • Tyre inflation

  • Product finishing - to vaporise and propel paint onto car components and shells

  • Air operated robots

  • Plasma cutting and welding - to assist with cutting and welding speed and reliability

  • Air tools - preferred to electronic tools as they are light and easy to handle

  • Paint shop applications - to operate paint pumps in highly volatile environments

  • Breathing air - filtration is used to provide breathing air quality

Contaminants in the air supply can result in costly product spoilage, expensive re-work and loss of valuable production.

Our compressors deliver uncompromising performance and reliability, while providing the right balance of air quality with a low cost of operation.


Sensitive, high technology equipment is used to manufacture electronic components. This is a large capital investment for any operator and one that needs to be protected at all times.

Such equipment uses a large quantity of compressed air, for example, to convey components pneumatically or to operate sensitive valves. This air must be oil-free - no question.

Oil contamination in the compressed air can result in expensive maintenance costs and, in extreme cases, a complete production shutdown.

Typical uses of compressed air in the electronics industry include:

  • PCB board cleaning - air is used to blow the boards clean after production

  • Pick and place machines - air is used to power the pneumatic machines for component conveying

At CompAir, we understand that in business, you have enough to worry about already.

Compressed air quality is just something you need to take for granted.

All our oil-free compressors are engineered to ensure a totally clean, consistent air supply, leaving you to concentrate on your business performance.

Industrial Manufacturing

Compressed air is an essential energy source, with up to 70% of industries using it for some aspect of their operations.

Businesses relying on compressed air for their manufacturing processes cannot compromise on the level of air purity, because any contamination could jeopardise the quality or safety of the product.

Typical uses of compressed air in the manufacturing industry include:

  • Spray finishing equipment - to vaporise paint so it can be applied to components and products

  • Air operated tools - air tools are preferred to electric tools as they are light and easy to handle

  • Air operated lifting equipment - air hoists can be used for a multitude of lifting operations

  • Shot blasting - air is used to propel grit or shot for blasting and cleaning operations

  • Cooling & heating - air is used in a vortex tube to create high volumes of hot and cold air for industrial heating and cooling processes

  • Cleaning - air is used for cleaning processes in manufacturing facilities

When you choose an oil-free compressor from CompAir, you don't only get the benefits of a guaranteed, clean air supply.

Our oil-free technologies also bring with them significant energy savings and environmental benefits so are becoming a preferred choice for operators keen to improve their carbon footprint.
