Compressed air is used to operate the systems intended for the transport and processing of raw materials, from sorting to mixing, from aeration of substances to forming in containers. It is necessary in canning and potting processes, where pressure closing machinery is required, in sterilising containers and also in drying and cooking many foods.
These are production cycles that involve 24/7 processing, and require machines with adequate performance, reliable over the long term and with an excellent balance between performance and energy consumption. In addition to all these requirements, in the food industry there is also a fundamental condition that compressors must guarantee: the quality of the air supplied.
In particular, in processes where the compressed air comes into direct contact with the food, a very accurate check to avoid any contaminants related to the phases of compression, distribution and delivery of air is required; moreover, the features of the lubricant used by the compressor must be specific.
Once the role of compressed air in the various production phases has been identified, it is essential to scrupulously select the best possible combination of air treatment accessories with which to equip the system. Mattei complete range of dryers and filtration systems fully meets these requirements.
Moreover, the vane construction technology requires less maintenance operations to replace worn components: this advantage allows you to further reduce operating costs, so that Mattei compressors can boast the lowest Life Cycle Cost on the market. By helping to limit climate-altering emissions, the energy efficiency of the compressors is also fundamental to making production eco-sustainable, a factor closely linked to the “green” image of companies in the food industry.
