ELGi’s AB series to deliver  oil-free ‘Class 0’ compressed air

ELGi’s AB series to deliver oil-free ‘Class 0’ compressed air

ELGi Equipments, one of the world’s leading air compressor manufacturers, together with its authorized partner Compressed Air Controls, have provided a complete oil-free ‘Class 0’ turnkey compressed air system solution to a new food science facility jointly operated by a trio of leading New Zealand research providers.
A dedicated supply of 100 percent oil-free compressed air was required in the recent development of the facility Te Ohu Rangahau Kai, which is shared by Massey University, AgResearch, and the Riddet Institute, and is situated on the university’s Manawatū campus in Palmerston North. 


The new facility includes over 1,800 m2 of research laboratory space that houses a range of hi-tech food science analytical equipment including mass spectrometers.  Mass spectrometers require high-purity nitrogen to analyze chemical molecules in food. Delivered by a nitrogen generator, the compressed air supply for the nitrogen generator needed to be 100% oil-free and certified ‘Class 0’ in compliance with ISO 8573-1.

To find the right solution to meet these stringent requirements, Massey University contacted long-standing compressed air partner Compressed Air Controls, one of ELGi’s authorized partners. 
Steve Carran, Territory Manager at Compressed Air Controls, said, “We designed a complete skid-mounted turnkey solution, including an ELGi AB37 oil-free screw air compressor and an Airmate EGRD200 refrigerated air dryer complete with downstream filtration, and full stainless steel air lines to meet their needs.”
