Industrial Oil-Free Air Compressors

Chamco is proud to be the exclusive western Canada distributor of oil-free air compressors by Sullair, the industry leader in oil-free compressed air technology.

The Ideal Clean Air Solution For Your Industrial Application

Does your industrial application require your compressed air to meet the highest standards for air purity?

Both oil-free and oil-flooded compressors can be designed with downstream mechanical filtration to remove all impurities in the air. However, oil-free compressors don’t introduce oil or other lubricants into the air compression process, which provides additional protection for highly sensitive applications.

What is Oil-Free Compressed Air?

Compressed air purity is defined by ISO 8573.1 purity classes. Oil-free applications require Air Quality Classes 1 or 0.

  • ISO Class 0 is based on the specifications of the particular application, below the ISO Class 1 maximum total oil concentration, which both oil-free and oil-flooded compressors can achieve.
  • The ISO 8573.1: 2010 table outlines the standards for each compressed air purity class. The table contains the maximum contaminant levels for each compressed air quality class and the test methods and analytical techniques for each contaminant type.

Oil-Free Compressors vs. Oil-Flooded Compressors

Depending on your industrial application, an oil-flooded compressor may be better suited for your needs. Below are some factors to consider when deciding between oil-free or oil-lubricated compressors. Contact our experts to learn more about which compressed air system is the best solution for you.

The Benefits of an Oil-Free Compressor

Prevent Oil Contamination

Oil-free compressors help eliminate potential contamination and improve air quality as there is no oil or lubricant used in the air compression process.

Decreased Noise Levels

Some oil-free air compressors are designed to produce less noise than oil-lubricated compressors, resulting in quieter operations, making them ideal for certain applications (laboratories).

Environmental Compliance

Thanks to reduced energy usage, oil-free air technology reduces your environmental impact and improves your regulatory compliance.

The Benefits of an Oil-Flooded Compressor

Reduced Costs

Oil-lubricated compressors have a lower initial purchase price and are generally a more cost-efficient solution.

Suited for Heavy-Duty Applications

Oil-flooded compressors are incredibly robust and suited for high daily usage in heavy-duty industrial applications.

Enhanced Durability

Oil lubrication helps reduce wear and tear on internal components, ensuring smooth operation and prolonging the compressor’s lifespan.

Oil-Free Air Applications

Oil-free compressors are particularly suited to sensitive applications where exceptionally clean air is needed, and the potential for oil contamination poses significant risks such as financial losses or health risks.
