Atlas Copco: The Oil-Free Air Compressors Pioneer.
We've Been Here from the Start. Atlas Copco has been at the forefront in pioneering and innovating the development of oil-free compressor technologies. Our oil-free compressors are certified ISO Class 0 - meaning that they are 100% oil-free! We were also the first compressor company to receive this certification. If you have an application that requires clean, oil-free air, you should think Atlas Copco.
What is an Oil-Free Compressor? Oil-free compressors are air compressors that operate without oil in the lubricating chamber, which eliminates the chance of contamination downstream - meaning that there isn't any chance that your end-product and application will be contaminated by oil. Rather than using oil, these compressors will utilize other types of technology such as water or Teflon-coated materials to lubricate the compression chamber.
No Compromise, Oil-Free Air for Every Application. We know that oil-free air is absolutely essential to a variety of industries, especially those that cannot risk their product or application being touched by oil. The food and beverage, medical, and pharmaceutical industries are just a few of these. We offer you the oil-free equipment perfectly suited to your unique requirements, all in a variety of technology types. Screw, centrifugal, scroll, piston...our oil-free compressor options are plentiful.
