The year 2020 has seen unprecedented times, and while most manufacturing setups and production facilities are still trying to revive their processes and capacities, they must prioritise safety, sanitization, and social distancing over optimising output.

In our fight against the Coronavirus, PPE products have become an essential requirement for the protection of every individual at the frontline, from doctors & medical staff, to policemen, cleaning staff and security & delivery personnel.

Textile units have started allocating their resources towards the production of such protective gear, adjusting to the needs of a changing world.

Compressed air in the textile industry

A reliable source of compressed air is needed at all levels of the supply chain in a textile manufacturing industry for effective and smooth operations.

  1. Power looms, spinning machines and other equipment used to process fabric require varying degree of compressed air
  2. Compressed air also powers tools to keep the equipment clean and in good and working condition
  3. The use of oil-free compressed air ensures safety standards are met and the output is free from contaminants.

Oil-free compressed air

There is a growing demand for protective textile products, and therefore the need to maintain quality and sterility in these processes.

Selecting the right compressed air systems becomes crucial here to meet the ISO standards and legal requirements while ensuring savings of cost and energy. Class 0 Oil-Free air guarantees 100% clean air for your systems, without any contaminants and disruptions.
