What Is Oil Free Compressed Air?

Oil free air compressors have been developed to provide 100% clean air. The bearings and gears of the air system are external to the compression chamber, so the grease and oil don’t make contact with the air itself. 

Oil free compressed air is essential for a number of industries, including:

  • Pharmaceutical
  • Food and Beverage
  • Life Sciences
  • Packaging
  • Automotive
  • Electronic
  • It’s the purest form of compressed air available. Opting for an oil free air compressor can save you money in the long run, as the air doesn’t require the same amount of cleaning as it would in a regular compressed air system. 

    You can achieve technically oil free air through the use of filtration, but this is not the same as oil free air. In addition, if you are achieving oil free air through filtration then you run the risk of failure of the filtration system allowing oil to pass and contaminate your process or product. Oil free compressors remove this risk.

    How do oil free air compressors work?

    Oil free air compressors work differently from typical compressed air systems because they don’t use oil to lubricate the mechanisms. Instead, they use other substances, including water or a Teflon-like substance, to provide the necessary lubrication without compromising the air quality. Oil free compressed air is useful in industries such as pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, and life sciences.

    Does an oil free compressor provide Class Zero air?

    All air compressors are ranked and given an International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) rating based on their quality of air. The best possible ranking is Class Zero, meaning the air is of the highest quality possible. All 100% oil free air compressors are developed to meet Class Zero ISO standards.

    How long do oil free air compressors last?

    Our oil free air compressors have a lifespan of approximately 50,000 hours. This is the typical lifespan of an oil free compressed air system and is shorter than an oil-lubricated alternative. Maintaining an oil free compressor is a lot easier than other air systems as there are fewer ancillary components involved. Griffin can supply, repair and maintain your oil free air system quickly and easily.
