Oil-free option for hospitals

With oil-free medical compressors used in many applications where clean air is an absolute requirement – such as the food and pharmaceutical sectors, BeaconMedaes says there is strong case for such technology’s use in hospital medical gas supply, ‘where clean breathing air is so vital’.

The company explained: “The incentive for using oil-injected technology may well be due to the high initial investment cost of oil-free medical compressors. However, this should be balanced against oil-free’s many advantages for hospital medical gas supply – first and foremost oil-free technology has zero risk of oil-carry over to the patient. Additionally, in instances of low air demand, oil-lubricated compressors are vulnerable to emulsification when water condensate mixes with the oil, which can potentially shut down the machine. With oil-free medical compressors, this risk does not exist. With no oil injected in the air, there is no need for waste water treatment. Oil-free also offers the best choice for our environment. It thus makes good sense – as other industries do – to take a closer look at the oil-free options when selecting hospital medical gas equipment.” 

BeaconMedaes and Pneumatech MGS now offer piston, scroll, and tooth oil-free air plants, fully compliant with HTM 02-01.
