In this index we list many articles we have to help you get started in becoming a compressed air expert. 


Our compressed air guide includes articles about screw compressors, reciprocating compressors, compressed air dryers, compressed air filters and many other compressed air topics. See you at trivia!


Compressing Air

Learn about the terms and expressions that occur in connection with the compression of air, and you will gain an insight into how the different parts od a compressor system combine to supply your machines and tools with compressed air.

Drying Compressed Air

The drying process removed moisture from the compressed air. Dry compressed air reduces the isk of corrosion damage to the compressed air syste, and improves the operational budget of connected machinery and tools. Drying mainly rakes place by two methods, cold drying or adsorption drying.

Screw Compressors

The screw compressor compresses the air in a space formed between two opposing rotating screws. These form, together with the surrounding air compressor housing, the screw drive. A screw compressor mainly works on two premises: liquid injection or drying. Both versions come in one-and two-stage models.

Filtering Compressed Air

By installing filters in the compressed air system, the levels of pollutants can be minimized to an acceptable level for operational air, or completely eliminated if necessary. We primarily use three different methods for filtration of air and gases; surface filtration, depth filtration and filtration with active carbon.

Reciprocating Compressors

A reciprocal compressor consists of one or more cylinders with pistons driven by a motor. The air is sucked into the cylinder and them compressed, in one or more stages to the operational pressure. After compression, the compressed air passes through the after-cooler and continues on to the air tank.
