Swan Oil-Less Air Compressors

Swan oil-less air compressors are a proven work horse. The requirement and advantages of oil-free compressed air has been noted in other blogs, so we will not cover all of the advantages.

It is worth re-stating however, that municipal regulations with regard to the disposal of oil-laden condensate, and the changing and disposal of waste oil, continues to be a costly feature for maintaining lubricated compressors. Most municipalities will not allow the draining of oil-laden condensate into city sewage systems. That necessitates the use of condensate/oil separation systems as part of any lubricated compressor system.

The routine of changing oil and having waste oil, plus the removal of oil and/or oil contaminated elements from separator systems, will require proper disposal, which will all require the time of maintenance personnel. This is where the Swan oil-less compressor will reap benefits, especially where clean air is imperative.


Not only can APPL supply Swan oil-less compressors as standard receiver-mounted units, but they are available in sound attenuating cabinet enclosed models. Included in those models is a complete control system with magnetic motor starter and automatic time delay shutdown feature.

These are attractive packages with very low noise levels, and they are very attractively priced. For quick delivery, APPL has 3/60/575V models in stock for 5 HP, 10 HP and 15 HP. Contact us for a quote.
