Cost of ownership

If you look at the total cost of ownership, oil-free compressors are a sound investment.

The oil-free technology reduces expenditures in four ways:

  • no expensive filter replacements needed;
  • lower maintenance costs;
  • no costs of treating oily condensate;
  • no costs of extra energy needed to combat pressure drop in filters.

These costs, although not apparent at the time of purchase, are very high and contribute substantially to the total cost of ownership. 

Moreover, as the oil-free air compressors eliminate the risk of a contaminated end-product, production downtime and damaged reputation, Class 0 compressors are well worth the investment.
