An oil-free air compressor is an advanced solution designed to deliver compressed air that is completely free from any oil contamination. Unlike, oil-injected compressors that rely on oil lubrication, our oil-free compressors eliminate any contact with oil during the compression process.
This guarantees that the final product is completely free of oil. This makes it ideal for applications where even the smallest amount of oil contamination is not allowed.
The working principle of an oil-free compressor involves advanced technologies that guarantee oil-free air production. Our compressors use advanced technology like dry screws or water-injected screws. This eliminates the need for lubricating oil. This not only eliminates the risk of oil contamination, but also ensures efficient and reliable performance meeting the highest air purity standards.
In industries where even the slightest oil contamination can have severe consequences, oil-free compressors are crucial. These compressors are particularly important in sectors where the end-product must remain free from any form of contamination
Oil-injected compressors rely on oil for lubrication and cooling, resulting in slight oil contamination in the delivered air. However, with the use of quality air products and coalescing filters, these traces of oil can be removed to achieve air purity levels as low as 0.01 micron.
Additional cleaning is possible with a carbon activated filter. With this, Class 1 air purity can be achieved. When using any filter, proper maintenance is recommended for optimal performance. On the other hand, oil-free compressors completely eliminate the risk of oil contamination. This make them essential to sensitive industries, such as:
- Food and beverage manufacturing: compressed air interacts directly with consumable products.
- Wastewater industry: relies on oil-free compressed air for aeration and facilitation efficient water recycling.
- Chemical processing and medical applications: demand the highest level of air purity, where precision is crucial.
The initial investment for oil-free compressors is usually higher than oil-injected compressors. This is because extra cooling methods are needed. Additionally, they may entail higher service and maintenance costs due to increased friction.
However, these considerations are outweighed by the significant benefits that oil-free compressors offer. With their ability to safeguard your processes and deliver high-quality air tailored to your specific application. You can trust our products to ensure optimal performance and peace of mind.

What is the advantage of an oil-free air compressor?
The advantage of an oil-free air compressor lies in its ability to deliver compressed air that is completely free from oil contamination. Oil-injected compressors rely on oil for lubrication, sealing, and cooling. Oil-free compressors, however, eliminate any contact with oil during the compression process. It ensures the compressor delivers 100% oil-free air which is ideal for applications that require air without any oil contamination.
Using oil-free compressors can benefit you in different ways. This type of compressor:
- guarantees superior air quality
- reduces the risk of product contamination
- eliminates the need for oil-related maintenance
These all result in cost savings and safer work environment for your operations.
Are oil-free compressors better than oil-injected?
When you are comparing oil-free compressors to oil-injected compressors, it is important to consider the specific requirements of your application and industry. Oil-free compressors have significant advantages in industries where even minor oil contamination can have serious consequences. They ensure 100% oil-free air delivery by eliminating any contact with oil during the compression process. This makes them highly suitable for sensitive applications such as food production, chemical and medical processes.
Oil-injected compressors are often used in manufacturing, industrial, and small workshop settings to provide effective performance with the use of oil for lubrication, sealing and cooling. While oil-injected compressors can be more cost-effective initially, oil-free compressors ensure long term benefits such as high-quality air, minimal risk of product contamination, and elimination of oil-related maintenance.
The choice between oil-free and oil-injected compressors depends on the requirements and needs of your specific application. Contact one of our experts to learn more.
