Pharmaceutical Grade Compressed Air

When a leading NHS Foundation Trust was investing in a new sterilisation unit, their facilities management company knew to call Cambs Compressors for a tailored technical solution.

What does Pharmaceutical Grade Compressed Air mean?

Airborne microorganisms and contaminants naturally present in the ambient air become concentrated by the normal functions of a compressor. This is because an air compressor produces an environment of moisture, heat, and oil which allows many organisms to thrive. These microscopic entities might be entirely harmless, or they may be life threatening if certain conditions are present. It is impossible to know what organisms are present inside a compressed air system, and this is why it’s critical to implement air quality control processes that protect both the processor and the customer.
