Air compressors manufacturers have come a long way to ensure that the air used in critical applications is as pure as possible. Oil contamination, even by the smallest quantities of oil, could result in process contamination.
When operating in open waters, we should not underestimate the role of oil-free, as it is vital when the air is in direct contact with the environment.
An example is the use of oil-free air for the creation of underwater bubble curtains for sound mitigation.
