Dental & Healthcare

In any healthcare, laboratory or dental surgery, you need a compressor that produces clean, bacteria-free air. We developed our oil-free compressors and filters to give you a reliable source of clean, compressed air. The ABAC CleanAir compressors are available with desiccant dryers and there are silenced models available too. Low noise levels allow the equipment to be located close to the point of use i.e. under a bench in a laboratory.

If you require a dryer and filtration system they must meet the appropriate standards. Our desiccant dryers remove water down to a -40°C pressure dewpoint to prevent bacteria from growing. ABAC’s filter systems meet dental requirement with dust filtration down to 1 µm with a DOP (aerosol) efficiency of not less than 99.97% and bacteria filtration down to 0.01 µm with a DOP (aerosol) efficiency of not less than 99.9999%. Reference ISO 8573.1:2010 as the standard for specifying air treatment with respective classes covering particulate, water, oil & oil vapour. Bacteria filtration is more commonly called sterile filtration.

Air compressors for hospitals CleanAir can’t produce medical air – to certify air as medical air the whole compressor package has to be designed and built to medical air directive and supplied with appropriate certification. We can’t offer this only the likes of Pneumatech Medical Gas Division, Beacon Medaes, Penlon etc. Can. Suggest we use statement as to what medical air is and consult us – we can then pass any enquiries on accordingly.

CleanAir compressors provide an integrated and stable source of compressed air. They deliver a constant supply of medical air for patient areas and surgical air for operating theatres.

Medical air is used for a variety of patient applications. Many patients sensitive to oxygen toxicity are delivered air to lower their exposure to oxygen. Many of these patients have extremely delicate respiratory systems or processes which rely on a pure, accurate concentration of medical air. Medical air is also used during anaesthesia as a substitute for nitrous oxide to reduce the high concentration of oxygen exposure. Compressors give hospitals a reliable, renewable source of compressed air for vulnerable patients.
