Gardner Denver and its brands have been a reliable and appreciated partner for vacuum and compressed air applications in the food manufacturing industry for many decades. Innovative specialist food manufacturing products that are hygienic, reliable and of the highest quality, satisfying even the most demanding customer are only one part of the value we offer to our customers. Our engineers' unique application know-how and focus on providing the best solution for your technical, economic and environmental requirements are as important. Food producers face many challenges and none more important than protecting and safeguarding the health of their consumers. Oil-free equipment is therefore top on the industry's priorities with the need to comply with ISO 8573-1 Class 0 for compressed air machines. There is also a clear risk of oil contamination via the exhaust of an oil-lubricated vacuum pump, which can jeopardize air quality. This is why Gardner Denver is focused on providing dry running and oil-free equipment that will avoid all contamination hazards and guarantee pure air in your process. These machines need less maintenance and can be serviced on site. Expensive food lubricants are no longer necessary – all of which translates into lower costs of ownership.
