Why Oilless Air Compressors?

Trying to decide between an oil vs oilless air compressor? In 1958, Atlas Copco brought the first oil-injected screw compressor to the market. In 1967, Atlas Copco presented the market with an oil-free compressor that met the requirement of textile, food and pharmaceutical industries by eliminating oil injection in the compression chamber.
