We have set the standard concerning uncontaminated air. Being the first and only compressor manufacturer to be ISO 22000 certified and the first to have been certified by a third party on ISO 8573-1 (2010) Class 0 clean air. This gives breweries a peace of mind that the air is as pure as possible and the compressors are manufactured in a safe and controlled environment by highly trained employees.
It doesn’t matter if you're a large brewery, microbrewery or a craft brewery; our compressors offer solutions for every single size, as compressed air is used in nearly every step of any brewery’s production process. From fermentation and aeration to bottling and carbonating, we can tailor our products specifically to the brewery’s needs depending on their energy, size and noise requirements.
Being the most reliable machine on the market comes with additional benefits. If you choose an oil-free air compressor, it means you do not have to replace expensive filters & there are no extra energy costs for pressure loss due to these filters. This brings down maintenance costs. Additionally, it is possible to recover the CO2 that is created during the fermentation process for commercial ends or self-use. Finally, thanks to our global service network that contains more than 180 countries downtimes are solved in no-time, no matter where you are or at what time.
Worried about the reported national CO2 shortage? We've bundled together five of our most popular air and nitrogen offerings into convenient packages to facilitate easier ordering and financing. Read the details here!
CO2 is essential for carbonization, but did you know you can replace CO2 with nitrogen for inerting, purging, and bottling? This can reduce your CO2 bill by around 70% and provide an instant payback that goes straight to the bottom line. It’s also great for the environment and you can reduce CO2 emissions by dozens of metric tons annually. The other good news? If you own a compressor, you’re already 50% of the way towards generating your own nitrogen!
Other fun facts include:
We can provide all the nitrogen you will ever need for under $500 per month - with no up-front costs (subject to required volume and eligibility). Don't take our word for it. Watch the math in action!
If you’re a large brewery, producing several hundred-thousand barrels of beer a year, then you know how much CO2 you produce! Have you looked at a CO2 recovery system? Do you already have one, but find ongoing maintenance a hassle? Could you use the recovered CO2 in your operations or even sell it to help profits? If the answer was yes to any of these questions, then the newly developed Atlas Copco CO2 recovery system could be right for you.
The Olde Mecklenburg Brewery in Charlotte, North Carolina (USA) uses oil free air compressors from Atlas Copco in their brewing processes to guarantee that their air is clean, their nitrogen is pure and their beer is always uncompromised.
Barranco Beer Company in Peru uses oil-free air compressors provided by Atlas Copco to produce high quality class 0 beer.
Compressed air is used to move beer from the conditioning tank to the bottle and for keeping the lines clean. Class 0 oil-free air will make sure the lines and tanks do not get polluted in the process.
It is possible to recover the CO2 that is created during the fermentation process and either use it to carbonate your products or by storing it and later selling it.

Oil-free compressed air is used for cleaning bottles and packaging prior to the filling. If the air is contaminated it can alter the flavor, odor and foam besides being a health hazard.
Compressed air supplies oxygen to bacteria during the fermentation process (aeration). This converts carbon hydrates to alcohol using micro-organisms. Important during the process is delivering the exact amount of compressed air and maintaining the correct oxygen level in order to determine the quality of the yeast.
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, thereby lowering maintenance costs.
Waste water treatment
Water used during the brewing process must be treated before it can be returned to the water cycle to minimize its impact on the environment. Naturally, the air needed for this treatment must be oil-free or the water would be contaminated again. Read more on wastewater treatment
