How Ambient Oil Vapour Affects Downstream Compressed Air Quality
What to Consider When Looking for Technically Oil-Free Compressed Air.
Compressed air is vital to any manufacturing process. Oil contamination can have devastating financial and commercial effects on a company — from equipment downtime to product rejections and consumer safety concerns. An often overlooked source of oil in compressed air — ambient air — is frequently misunderstood, underestimated or ignored.
