TAMPERE, Finland, April 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Compressed air is used practically in every industrial plant in the world powering up machinery, tools and processes. Clean air is critical to many production processes to ensure high quality production. Two years ago at 2015 ComVac Trade Fair in Hannover, Germany, a Finnish compressor manufacturer Tamturbo introduced its 100% oil-less, direct drive turbo compressor. With increasing need for clean compressed air, these new energy efficient and maintenance-free compressors are just what the industry is craving for.

Oil-free air is a necessity for instance in food, beverages, pharmaceuticals, electronics and semiconductor or automotive manufacturing. Oil-less Tamturbo compressors, which are based on high speed motors equipped with magnetic bearings, fit the job perfectly. Since ComVac 2015, things have developed at a fast pace and now Tamturbo offers a range of compressors to the markets. Units have been excessively validated by our customers and the feedback has been great.
"For us, compressor reliability, energy-efficiency and non-extensive maintenance are the most important factors. We've had the Tamturbo's TT 60 kW compressor running now for 14 months and we find the energy-efficiency high as promised. So far, the TT60 has not even required any maintenance, and apart from a filter change I don't foresee any being necessary either. The fact that the unit is completely oil-less offers significant on-site advantages and suits perfectly our long-term sustainability goals," says Mr. Tapio Laukkanen, Technology Manager at Savon Sellu Ltd's paperboard mill, one of Tamturbo's validating partners.
Tamturbo is participating at the ComVac 2017 in Hannover again this year. The product family is presented at the fair from April 24th to 28th. Models with simple and compact technology are highly reliable and maintenance-free. The estimated market share of oil-free industrial compressors is about 20% today and is expected to grow substantially. Tamturbo has the perfect product for customers' oil-free air needs.
"We expect a lot of interested visitors from end customers, distributors, manufacturers, packagers, partners and vendors. We are highly confident, that our revolutionary technology is a game changer. The new era of oil-less compressed air industry is here to stay!" says Timo Pulkki, CEO of Tamturbo.
