Process air applications in food processing

Oil-free compressors with the highest possible security of supply and energy efficiency

Process air applications, such as pneumatic conveying systems in food processing, are under pressure to become cheaper and, at the same time, more reliable and productive. In addition, the highest demands are placed on the quality of the compressed air. Compliance with the increasingly strict hygiene regulations is essential to ensure the utmost safety in terms of food quality and thus reduce risks for the consumer. As a result of the quite sensitive conveying media, the choice of the process air generator – also with respect to explosion protection and safety – is of vital importance and must be selected to fit precisely. Demand for attributes such as robustness, reliability and durability across the entire technological equipment spectrum is also increasing continuously.
