Air for Sale
Compressed air is industry’s fourth utility. Along with electricity, water and natural gas, compressed air is a resource that powers everything from handheld pneumatic tools to plant-wide manufacturing systems. Most plants produce their own compressed air. Many, however, are treating compressed air like they would any other utility by purchasing compressed air not compressed air equipment.
In simple terms, a third-party supplier produces compressed air on a user’s site and the user agrees to purchase the quantity and quality of compressed air required. A pioneer and one of the largest suppliers in the United States is DirectAIR®, a division of Air Technologies.
