Compressed air applications in industry

Cambs Compressors expertise and experiences in compressed air solutions range from Agriculture to Life Sciences and much more.

Compressed air is all around us, but where is it used exactly?

In industry, compressed air is used in two ways: as energy and as part of a process. These two types are referred to as Energy Air and Active Air respectively.

Energy Air is used for storing and transmitting energy

Energy Air is used for storing and transmitting energy in order to do mechanical work. More specifically, it is used to power pneumatic production equipment, air operated lathe chucks, pressure clean parts and to convey or cool components during production.

Active Air is an integral part of a process

Active Air is required as an active and integral part of a certain process. In this case, the air comes in contact with the product therefore the air quality is very important. The clean, dry air quality, or CDA quality for short, can be enhanced by utilising oil-free compressors and by treating the air using one of the many quality air tools available.

Compressed air has been a solution to many industry challenges over the years.

Whatever the industry and whatever the application, Cambs Compressors have the solutions to meet your needs for high quality compressed air.

It’s almost impossible to imagine a world without compressed air

Different applications call for different types of air compressors and whilst there are many types of compressors in size and power supply, nine out of ten industries use compressed air daily. Compressed air acts as an energy source for a variety of tools and machinery, and it is often an important and well integrated part of many production processes. Compressed air is often used for blowing with air blow guns, air nozzles and air knives to generate movements and lifting, or to clean, move or cool materials.
