Access to reliable equipment designed to operate oil free is paramount, and Hitachi has developed significant expertise in this space, along with a premium product offering.

Some of the world’s key industries have a critical dependence on oil free air supply, from medical and pharmaceutical to food and beverage, electronics, and automotive industry applications. If air is not clean and contaminant-free, it can pose significant health and safety issues that could be catastrophic to businesses and consumers.

What does ‘oil free’ actually mean?

Air quality is defined under ISO 8573 by the International Standards Organisation (ISO). There are six air quality classes, while contaminant types are also categorised, for example, solids, liquids, and oil. Solid contaminants can be removed through filtration, while some liquid contaminants can be removed with dryers. In some industries, oil contamination is best avoided entirely – enter the oil free compressor, preventing the presence of the contaminant in the first place. Only an oil free compressor can achieve Class Zero air as specified by ISO 8573.
