Why do we need compressed air?

Compressed Air is often described as the fourth utility, although not as ubiquitous as electricity, petrol and gas, it plays a fundamental part in today’s modern world. The main difference is that users generate their own air and so have a choice in the way that air is generated.

The importance of compressed air systems is often over looked, but in reality it plays a vital part in most modern manufacturing processes and modern civilisation. Although we may not realize it most products we use today could simply not be made without compressed air. In fact, approximately 70% of all companies use compressed air for some aspect of their operations. Compressed air accounts for about 10% of the global energy used in industry today.
