High quality compressed air ensures pure products

Problem: In order to guarantee supply of high quality air and the purity of its natural water products, Princes Gate Spring Water wanted to replace its oil-lubricated compressor installation at it’s bottling plant in Wales.
Solution: The company has achieved energy savings and production improvements by replacing its compressor installation with Atlas Copco oil-free machines.
Production operations at the bottling plant need a constant 108l/s supply of high quality compressed air at 7bar for the low-pressure air users, such as air cylinders, manifolds, filling equipment and inking machines.
Princes Gate’s decision to install the Atlas Copco ZT37 VSD and the ZT18, together with the AIRnet pipework, was influenced by the need for optimum air quality and product purity. Atlas Copco’s process air complies with the standard of air purity, ISO 8573-1(2001) and embraces the Class 0 industry standard which measures all three forms of oil contamination.
