Since installing three oil-free compressors and control equipment from CompAir, food processing company Ifantis' plant in Athens, Greece is reported to have experienced a 15% reduction in compressed air energy usage, while its maintenance requirements and associated costs have been lowered by 25%. CompAir's DH compressors have a different operating principle to conventional oil-free screw and piston compressors and operate without any oil lubrication. The compressor block is lubricated, sealed and cooled by water, which is sprayed into the compression element.
