The UK is the 9th largest manufacturing nation in the world. And compressed air is the fourth utility used to provide power for many of the different manufacturing operations.

Compressed air is used to operate everything from HVAC systems to pneumatic equipment, as it is safer and more convenient than electricity.

As the technologies used in the manufacturing process get more and more advanced, the efficiency and quality of compressed air will become more important.

Typical uses of compressed air in the manufacturing industry include:
  • Spray finishing equipment
  • Air operated tools
  • Air operated lifting equipment
  • Cooling and heating
  • Air conditioning
  • Wind generation
  • Air separation

Manufactuirng is not a static industry so whether you require a single air drop, pipework extension, or even a complete turnkey installation, Direct Air can supply and install a system solution to meet your needs.


Air Compressors

Oil-lubricated compressors run smoothly, quietly and reliably, and are suitable for use in everything from woodworking to pick-and-place equipment. While oil-free compressors are generally used for painting and coating processes which require higher air purity.
