Our Partners: Atlas Copco
The leader in oil-free compressed air technology
Oil-free air is used in all kinds of industries where air quality is paramount for the production process and end product. These applications include food and beverage processing, the pharmaceutical industry (manufacturing and packaging), wastewater treatment, chemical and petrochemical processing, semiconductor and electronics manufacturing, the medical sector, automotive paint spraying, textile manufacturing
and many more.Contamination by even the smallest quantities of oil can result in costly production downtime and product spoilage, making Class 0 an industry standard.
First in oil-free air technology
Over the past sixty years Atlas Copco has pioneered the development of oil-free air technology, resulting in a range of air compressors and blowers that provide 100% pure, clean air. Through continuous research and development, Atlas Copco achieved a new milestone, setting the standard for air purity as the first manufacturer to be awarded ISO 8573-1 CLASS 0 certification.
Eliminating any risk
As the industry leader committed to meeting the needs of the most demanding customers, Atlas Copco requested the renowned TÜV institute to type-test its range of oil-free compressors and blowers.
Using the most rigorous testing methodologies available, all possible oil forms were measured across a range of temperatures and pressures. The TÜV found no traces of oil at all in the output air stream. Thus Atlas Copco is not only the first compressor and blower manufacturer to receive CLASS 0 certification, but also exceeds ISO 8573-1 CLASS 0 specifications.
CLASS 0 means:
- Zero risk of contamination.
- Zero risk of damaged or unsafe products.
- Zero risk of losses from operational downtime.
- Zero risk of damaging your company’s hard-won professional reputation.
