Atlas Copco Obtains ISO Oil-Free Air Certification

The Belgium-based Oil-free Air Division of Atlas Copco AB, Sweden, has received ISO 8573-1 Class 0 certification for its Z series of oil-free rotary screw air compressors. The compressors — which were tested by the independent German Technical Monitoring Association — are the first in the world to receive the certification, according to Atlas Copco, which reported the compressors exhibited no traces of oil deposits under all test conditions.

The ISO 8573-1 compressed air standard sets procedures for evaluating air purity with respect to oil, particles and water, as well as identifying gaseous and microbiological contaminants. Class 0 is the most stringent of six purity classes under the standard.
