Compressed air is air that is pressurized and condensed. Just like regular air, compressed air consists mostly of nitrogen, oxygen, and water vapor. Compressed air is useful as a propellant and energy source in areas where it may be difficult or dangerous to source other power or as blowing “active” air. When used as an energy source, compressed air can power tools and production equipment. Tools and equipment powered by compressed air, can be found in various applications across industries such as construction, tire service, mechanical repair, factory production, industrial processes, and vehicle safety systems. Amusement Park rides, such as roller coasters, and ski lifts use air-powered brakes, and hotels use compressed air to control elevators. Active air provides a steady supply of air when needed for tasks such as aeration or for medical use, in which case, it must be clean, dry and contaminant free.

Compressed air has been described as the fourth utility and is a popular energy source because it’s light and easy to move, energy efficient, safe, versatile, and cost-effective. It’s non-combustible and there are no dangerous exhaust fumes or other harmful by-products. Compressed air plays an integral role in the production of cars and is also widely used in the food and beverage industry. Common uses for air in this industry include air knives, product handling, food machines, packaging, and fluid pumps. It accounts for about 10% of the global energy currently used.

There are many types of purities and mixtures available that cater to the varied uses of compressed air. From blowers and dryers to food & beverage processing, we have the years of experience to provide and consult for your needs.

Primary Application

Oil & Gas
Aviator Breathing Air
Breathing Air Gas

Compressed air is used for a variety of applications within the oil and gas industry. Processes such as drilling, petrochemical synthesis, gas re-injection, cementing, petroleum refining, equipment and pipeline cleaning, pipeline pressurization and well testing all require compressed air.

Aviator O2 has a lower moisture content than medical or industrial oxygen to prevent ice formation at high altitudes or low temperatures. Aviator breathing O2 is used, per FAA requirements, for pilots flying above 12,500 feet for more than 30 minutes as a supplement to cabin 02.

Breathing air is not pure oxygen, but rather a mixture of gases meant to mimic our atmospheric environment for the purpose of health and safety in a non-typical breathing environment. Breathing air gas is critical in artificial environments which need to provide air for humans such as in underwater breathing, submarine environments, mountaineering above 20,000 feet, outer space environments, medical first aid and life support, and confined space safety.
