Compressed air which is contaminated by oil is a
concern for every compressed air user Depending on the application,
there are risks for production plants, the environment or even for
a person's health. We can say one thing for sure though: Because of
the environmental / suction air, an oil free compressor does not
automatically guarantee for oil free compressed air. Furthermore,
oil free compressors require maintenance and can fail causing
In most cases, a certain residual amount of oil content cannot
be entirely avoided in standard applications. The compressed air
class as defined in ISO 8753-1 provide an exact guideline for the
assessment of the compressed air quality. The system supervises the
amount of residual oil in the compressed air flow down to the range
of a thousandth of a mg/m3. Inadmissible residual oil
concentrations can be identified and signaled reliably, and the
consequences of an oil leak avoided.
