Food and beverage customer stories


Automation air

Compressed air is used to control the valves and actuators in automated lines for filling, packaging and bottling. With oil-free compressed air, you prevent your automation components from jamming and keep your end product safe.


Compressed air is used to push powdered milk or cocoa powder along pipes. With oil-free air, you will avoid oil contaminant mixing with the powder and maintain the powder purity.

Cleaning air

Compressed air for cleaning bottles, packaging and moulding prior to filling. Oil in compressed air will contaminate the food containers and alter the flavour and odour of the end product, besides being a health hazard.

Air blowing, aeration

Compressed air is pumped into a liquid to boost its oxygen content. This is used, for example, in fish farming to oxygenate water in lower layers and/or oxidize the sediments. Oil contamination in the air will kill the fish and other fauna.


Compressed air supplies oxygen to bacteria during fermentation to produce food ingredients such as citric acid, wine, yoghurt… The presence of even small oil traces will affect bacterial activity, create a substandard product and contaminate the end product.

Food storage

In the air separation process, compressed air is broken up into oxygen and nitrogen. The nitrogen is then used to preserve foods in cans, in larger storage facilities and in maritime transport. The air must be 100% oil-free as the nitrogen comes directly into contact with the food. Oil will also destroy the membranes in psa plants which are expensive to replace.

Cooling and spraying

Compressed air is used to cool down baked goods after they emerge from the oven. Contamination of the air spoils the end product leading to rejections and production losses.

Class Zero, means zero oil and zero risk of contamination or of unsafe products. Oil-injected compression, even filtered, cannot guarantee that all oil vapors, aerosols and other contaminants are removed from the air. In the food and beverages industry in particular any risk of oil contamination must be excluded.
