When it comes to compressed air, its meaning is not always clear, especially for those who have little confidence and familiarity with certain technical topics or do not work in certain industrial sectors. With this article we want to try to explain who Riem Italy is and how it uses and treats compressed air.
It may seem strange, but each of us “meets” compressed air daily not even being aware of it: let’s think of car tires, bicycle wheels or PET containers that contain food such as mineral water. What is compressed air made of and what is it used for? Air is a gas composed of nitrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide and other gases such as helium argon etc. When it is “compressed”, it is forced into a smaller space through machines called compressors; it accumulates energy which is stored in pipes and large tanks and used by industry in general to perform the most diverse tasks. This form of energy is thus used by assembly lines to bottle, label, move, screw, cut, pack, paint, etc. the same products that we find on the market every day.
Compressed air is preferably used over electricity for safety reasons; in fact, it can be used in risky conditions such as in the presence of wet or damp floors, it removes the risk of short circuits, is easy to use even in complex places such as construction sites. Furthermore, systems fed with compressed air are much lighter and more ergonomic and this implies an advantage in their portability.
