Custom-made PET bottle blowing compressors

We tailor our products to perfectly match your needs. Depending on the different requirements, such as low noise and vibration levels or different space needs, we can customize our products completely.

This also means that no additional infrastructure is needed apart from the investment itself. Additionally, different energy demands require different solutions which we can deliver. All our oil free compressors are satisfactory to the ISO 22000 and 8573-1 norms.

Energy efficient PET bottle blowing and more

The PET bottle blowing compressors that we manufacture are among the most energy efficient on the market. Being oil free means no expensive air filters must be replaced and that there is no energy loss due to these filters pressure drop.

In addition, there is no external high-pressure dryer needed which is the case for our competitors. Our patented “virtual shaft” system connects all our compressors to minimize any possible downtimes and boost energy efficiency. Finally, we offer usable medium-pressure tap-off, making it possible to avoid the need of separate medium pressure air compressors.

Monitoring with SMARTlink

All your compressors can be installed with a SMARTlink system which safeguards the performance of your equipment. SMARTlink links all your compressors with your smartphone and/or computer. It allows continuous monitoring and analyzation of efficiency and allows making accurate and immediate improvements when needed.

In case of problems SMARTlink will warn you ahead of a shutdown or similar, this way you can avoid the risk of a breakdown. Additionally, the transparency facilitates assessing system performance leading to improved system usage and minimizing energy consumption costs.

Taking steps towards zero plastic waste

PET is globally recognized as a safe and recyclable packaging material.

PET bottles remain the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly packaging option when compared to aluminum cans and glass bottles. When measuring greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption, PET containers simply have the best performance.  To give you an idea, to make a PET bottle, it takes 70% less CO2 versus a glass bottle and if you look at the entire life cycle (including recycling), it is 90% lower CO2 than glass bottles, where the weight of the glass is in the logistic.

Picking your way to more savings, never less

Companies have become far more rigoruous in their selection process - this is probably the reason why they choose Atlas Copco PET compressors. You can also rely on the complete PET package that’s leading the future of high pressure PET bottling as it allows you to reduce your environmental footprint up to 30%.  For smaller installations, you can also count on our air-cooled PET bottle compressor.

Virtual shaft for PET blowing

In general, compressors are connected to one machine that generates power. When this machine starts it has to generate about seven to ten times the energy that it eventually needs to blow PET bottles. This is an enormous cost as companies have to pay for this surge of electricity. We have developed a way to avoid this huge peak in current that is generated when compressors are started.
Instead of using one machine,  we use two and connect them with a “virtual shaft”, this shaft virtually connects the two machines by using our own patented algorithms. By doing this,  the two machines do not start simultaneously but with a time interval, one of the machines delivers about 60% of the necessary energy and the other machine delivers the rest. The outcome is that the starting currents for both machines are a lot lower, thus a lot more energy efficient when combined and this results in a lower total cost of ownership.

PET blowing customer stories


Cleaning air

Oil-free compressed air is used for cleaning bottles and packaging before they are filled. If the air is contaminated it can alter the flavor and odor besides being a health hazard.

Medium-pressure tap-off

Gain efficiency by not losing the medium-pressure that is generated when blowing PET bottles and use this pressure for instrumentation in the rest of the company
See more about usable medium-pressure tap-off.

PET bottle blowing

High pressure compressed air is used to blow bottles into the shape of the blow mold. Class 0 oil free air ensures the bottle does not get contaminated with oil.


Compressed air is used to control the valves and actuators in automated lines for packaging, labelling and more. Oil-free air prevents automated components from jamming and keeps the end product safe.
