Application Overview

Compressed air is used for metalworking machinery, including molds, dies, cutting tools and machining centers. They transform purchased metals into intermediate or end-use products by forging, stamping, bending, forming, welding, machining and assembly. While many focus solely on the air compressor itself, it is important to consider the entire air system that impacts efficiency, reliability and durability.

Let's be serious, a facility isn't the cleanest place. There is constantly dust in the air and various oils being used. When your compressor is running, it is collecting the dust in the shop and pushing it through your compressed air system. A compressor with dust particles, oil and water droplets only make the compressor to work harder, raising your energy costs.
