Nitrogen Generators for the Food Industry

Posted by Jack Conner

Nov 17, 2017 1:10:12 PM

Pure nitrogen plays a critical role in ensuring optimal consumer safety for all types of perishable foods. Used for both the transportation and storage of food products, nitrogen allows for efficient, economical preservation, locking in freshness and flavor while safeguarding human health.


Nitrogen is the dominate gas in atmospheric air, but food freshness can be affected by even small amounts of oxygen, which allow harmful microbes, such as bacteria, to flourish. Therefore, nitrogen-rich environments with no more than 2% oxygen by volume are ideal for the processing, packaging, and storing of food products. In fact, nitrogen generation is employed in almost every step of food processing  operations.

Understanding High-Pressure Air Compressors

Posted by Jack Conner

Jul 20, 2017 9:01:00 AM

Used in a wide range of industries, high-pressure air compressor solutions are used in applications that require consistently high pressure and additional pounds per square inch (psi) — generally around 650 psi or higher — to complete certain tasks. Compressor boosters are also available to serve as add-ons for existing systems.

At Compressed Air Systems, we often field questions about the different types of high-pressure systems and their specific properties and benefits. Below, we’ve addressed some of the most frequently asked questions.

Condensate and the Environment

As with most industrial processes, the creation of compressed air can produce undesirable byproducts that must be managed to keep processes running smoothly. One of the most prevalent consequences of using compressed air systems is the creation of condensate, a mixture of moisture and oil.

Compressed air systems are regularly flooded with oil; a 100-Hp compressor passes an average of 10 gallons of oil per year. Just 1 gallon of oil, however, can contaminate about a million gallons of water.

Effectively Managing your Compressed Air Systems

A complete air system is not just in the mechanical room where the compressor station is, but it is the complete system including the distribution of piping, hoses, fittings, regulators and other components that are needed for each application.

Maintaining and optimizing your complete system starts in the compressor room with routine maintenance, and includes the modernization of your controls.  A complete system analysis serves to identify energy efficiencies and pressure control, and helps to pinpoint potential areas for savings.

Sourcing Your Dental Air Compressors

Dental air compressors are integral parts of any functioning dental office. Unfortunately, they are not often discussed or even thought about until it’s time for a dental health professional to purchase one.

Operating repeatedly throughout each and every day, dental air compressors need to be durable. Because they’re used to treat patients, there exists the potential to negatively impact health, so the air that these compressors produce must be especially clean. In dental office settings, they must also operate quietly using standard 220/110 volt power sources.

If you’re shopping for a dental air compressor, educating yourself about their unique characteristics will help to select a high quality model that best suits your needs.
