Air Compressors for the Glass Industry

High quality compressed air is key for the production of most types of glass, as it's used as instrument and plant air to power pneumatic tools, convey materials and generate electricity.

The Global Importance of Air Compressors in Glass Manufacturing

Air compressors are used within the glass manufacturing industry for a variety of different processes and applications. Large quantities of clean, dry air are needed for blowing tubes for lighting and electronics, as well as forming containers, bottles and glassware. Therefore, it's important you have an efficient, high-performance system in place to deliver continuous, reliable compressed air for your glass applications. As an expert in end-to-end compressed air systems, Ingersoll Rand can help you create the perfect strategy for your press or blow glass container manufacturing facility.
