Compressed air is widely used in everyday life, both in the home and for industrial purposes. Many commercial and industrial companies rely on compressed air as the energy source that powers up pneumatically operated equipment and tools – food manufacturing companies that mix up granular products, aerate liquids and render meat products being just one example.
Because compressed air is used for a wide variety of purposes, there are different quality standards of compressed air, with each being suitable for different functions. These quality standards, commonly referenced as ISO 8573-1:2010, are divided into six different classes or levels, which are determined by measuring three contaminants, namely oil content, water vapour and solid particles.
Here at Cleveland Compressors, we have a range of products when it comes to air treatment. Knowing what you’re after in terms of compressed air quality, as well as the purpose of the equipment, are crucial in ensuring that you have the right air treatment product for your specific needs.
Breathing air purifiers
As employers become increasingly aware of their responsibility to comply with International Breathing Air Standards, breathing air purifiers have become standard in some work environments where contaminants such as fumes, oil, vapours, gases, solid particles and micro-organisms are present. Our wide variety of air purification products ranging from simple respirators that offer basic protection against low levels of dust particles to self-contained breathing apparatus for highly contaminated environments.
Compressed air dryers
Compressed air purification equipment must deliver uncompromising performance and reliability, while also providing the right balance of air quality and low operation costs. Our complete range of compressed air dryers includes refrigerated air dryers, desiccant air dryers and membrane dryers that suit a multitude of purposes and uses.
Compressed air filtration
Clean compressed air is essential in such industries as food processing, electronics, health care, photography, dairy and instrumentation. To ensure that compressed air is free of both solid particulate contamination and liquid aerosols, coalescing filters are required. To meet our customers’ varied needs, Cleveland Compressors offers compressed air filtration products under the following categories:
- Coalescing filters (for oil, water, dust and vapour removal)
- Point-of-use adsorber filters (for vapour removal)
- High-pressure filters
- Water separators
- Sterile air filters (for food-grade compressed air)
- Silicone-free filters
- Vacuum filters
- Mist eliminators
- Filter-Regulator-Lubricator (FRL) combos
We also provide a comprehensive range of on-site, on-demand analytical and industrial gas generators and gas generation systems. Product offerings include nitrogen gas generators for industrial applications and analytical lab gas generators to support laboratory equipment and instruments.
