The value of compressed air

Sectors and applications

Compressed air in modern plants is an essential component used in many aspects of production.

CMC, based on the experience gained in more than 50 years of activity, is able to give adequate answers for many applications in various sectors. Depending on the industrial sector and the application, the quality and purity levels required change, but in general compressed air is required to be free of contaminants (dust, water and oil) to maintain the characteristics of the final product and guarantee safety.

ISO 8573-1 specifies the permissible contamination level in each m3 of compressed air; it defines the qualities for industrial compressed air for general use, without taking into account the quality of the air leaving the compressor. This standard does not apply to respirable air and medical use.
