Oil vapour in compressed air – Safety via 24/7 process reliability

Even "oil-free" components and compressors are no guarantor for "oil-free" compressed air due to impurities in the ambient air / intake air.  In most cases, a certain residual oil content cannot be entirely avoided.

Therefore precise monitoring of the oil vapour content on a constant and reliable basis is important.  In particular in critical production processes such as those found in chemical and pharmaceutical industries, food production and surface engineering. The analysis and control of compressed-air quality is a crucial factor in avoiding costly lost production and product recall.
