As the largest local beverage company in China, Hangzhou Wahaha Group Co., Ltd. provides more than 150 varieties of food and beverage products, such as drinks, canned foods, health products and milk powder.

Class 0 oil-free air for PET blowing process
Wahaha Group always regards food safety as the first priority and insists that any risk during production must be eliminated. For example, compressed air is required during production of PET bottles. However, if there are any traces of oil in the compressed air, it can enter the bottles during the PET blowing process and contaminate the end product. This can have a negative impact on the taste and odor of the end products and could even affect consumers’ health.
As an added advantage, compressors, equipped with the heat of the compression dryers also provide Wahaha with exceptional energy savings, which dramatically reduce their total cost of ownership. Atlas Copco has also provided solutions for Wahaha on energy savings and emission reduction.
