For some industries, oil-injected air compressors are not ideal such as food and beverage, pharma, and packaging. The oil presents too high a risk of contamination. For many other industries, air compressors that use oil are better suited. They are generally those that are not as susceptible and sensitive to contaminated air. Following are several examples:
Clamping, stamping, tool powering and cleaning, controls and actuators
Air piston powering, tool powering, clamping, spraying, controls and actuators
Mould press powering, tool powering, clamping, and forming, injection moulding
Assembly station powering, controls and actuators, injection moulding, tool powering, and spraying
Conveying, blending, mixing, controls and actuators, glass blowing and moulding, cooling
Delivering air that powers tools and operations along the production line, from car to engine assembly & more
