Fixed speed, variable speed and oil free Compressors

Compressor technology has evolved considerably over the past 20 years. Compressors today are more efficient, cleaner and better controlled than ever before. These developments are all designed to help customers save money through energy savings, whilst still providing the necessary compressed air, critical for their production needs.

Variable Speed Compressors

At the forefront of these developments is the introduction of variable speed compressors. Variable speed compressors regulate their speed so they produce only the air that is required, rather than switching themselves on and off at regular intervals to meet the required demand. Variable speed compressors can save up to 30% of the energy used by a similar sized fixed speed unit.

Oil Free Compressors

Another major area of development in the compressed air industry is the introduction of oil free compressors. Many industries such as food and pharmaceutical cannot afford for oil contamination of the end products. Oil free compressors, where no oil is used in the compression process, guarantees oil free air. Air Equipment has considerable experience installing servicing and maintaining both oil free and variable speed compressors.
