In the healthcare sector, compressed air is used for surgical applications (many instruments and tools work with compressed air) for different treatments on the patients (such as oxygen therapy, anaesthesia, administration of drugs through nebulizer), in laboratories, to operate diagnostic machines and equipment or even to dry medical equipment.
In the pharmaceutical sector, it is used as process air that comes directly into contact with the drugs for the following purposes: cleaning, aeration, handling, packaging and bottling. In the production lines, it is used to activate valves, pneumatic cylinders and different automations. Or directly in the production of drugs, such as in the case of the supply of oxygen to bacteria required for the production of antibiotics.
In addition, compressors for healthcare or pharmaceutical use must ensure operational continuity and flow stability to ensure that the supply takes place without interruptions or changes in flow. Safety and compliance with numerous legal regulations and standards are also essential factors in the choice of a compressor to be used in these areas.
It is therefore necessary to precisely identify the different profiles of use and the need for compressed air, assess the need of control and management devices for the compressor rooms, combine any accessories for air treatment and heat recovery, without forgetting about the safety and wear of the machines, especially when operating in delicate environmental conditions.
Mattei offers a consultancy service to support its customers in the selection of the best combination between the compressor features and the usage needs and also to make custom-made solutions to satisfy particular needs.
