Global (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, Middle East and Africa) Oil Free Compressor (Oil-Free Compressor, Oil-Free Air Compressor) Market 2018, Forecast to 2023
An oil-free compressor is only one of several types of compressors available. It works the same way as a standard air compressor, and may even look very similar on the outside; internally, however, it contains special seals designed to keep the crucial lubricating oil away from the compressed air. The moving parts inside the compressor require lubrication to reduce the friction. Lubrication is essential in adequate amounts, regardless of the type of compressor, in order to prevent failure of the parts. The term oil-free refers to the air that the compressor produces, not the machine itself.
