Tamturbo Touch-Free™ Technology combines multiple tested technologies to provide a more efficient compressed air system for industries preferring oil-free compressed air.

The current oil-free technologies to produce compressed air, used by most industrial production facilities have three problems: 1) They are not 100% oil-free, risking end product contamination. 2) They lose efficiency quite rapidly resulting in waste of energy. 3) They need intensive maintenance resulting in significant costs reaching up to 70% of the initial cost of the unit. Addressing these issues, Tamturbo Touch-Free™ Technology combines multiple tested technologies to provide a more efficient compressed air system. The technology is based on centrifugal (turbo) compression, high-speed electric motors, Active Magnetic Bearing technology and an ingenious control system. Altogether, it results in significantly lower electricity consumption, practically maintenance-free use and an extremely reliable and user-friendly compressed air production system.
